No doubt you’ve heard that America is in the midst of an obesity crises. Everyone is fat these days. Fat men, fat women. Even fat babies. Government has tried to step in by making sure people know what comes inside a Big Mac. Schools are clamping down on sodas and sweets. Heck, even Nintendo is trying to help people get skinny by offering the Wii Fit.
None of it’s working.
How do you solve the obesity problem? Easy. Prescription pants.
These days, there are pants for everybody, no matter how big you are. Curing obesity is as easy as creating a cut-off point. Let’s say size 42 for men. If you need bigger pants, you won’t be able to get them without a prescription from a doctor. And prescription pants won’t be pretty; they’ll be orange. Bright orange. And they’ll say “Prescription Pants” on them. Doctors can prescribe the pants for limited amounts of time, unless a medical condition precludes a person from every losing weight. Once your prescription runs out, you don’t have pants anymore.
The effectiveness is two-fold: First, those who are overweight have an incentive (ie: no pants) to lose weight. Second, those who are not overweight will work hard to stay in shape, lest they’re forced to suffer the shame of wearing prescription pants.
