All those fatso middle-aged men

I just read an internet news article about how it’s now illegal in France to be an “excessively thin” model.

Apparently, the new law will require all models to provide a medical certificate proving their health and Body Mass Index (BMI) are appropriate based on their weight, age and body shape.

The new law provides for some rather steep penalties once it becomes effective on January 1, 2017.  So these “excessively thin” models have some time to beef it up so to speak.

The penalty is one that would be paid by those who employ these models and not the models themselves.  How does the potential $81,000 penalty sound to you?

Well what about here in America?

There’s nothing like it thus far but leave it to our “Big Brother” government to decide what’s best for us.  Might something similar eventually find its way here?

And would it apply to “excessively thin” models like in France or perhaps another category of less-than-desirable men or women?

Maybe a good place to start would be to go after all those fatso middle-aged men.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
