Just something for a laugh: Remember the comic, Totie Fields?
She was short--feet didn't touch the ground when she sat in a chair. She was fat, real fat.
She wore the most wonderful colorful and flowery dresses.
Once on the Johnny Carson show, they started talking about being overweight. He brought up the line about changing her wardrobe if she wanted to look thinner. Wear basic black. Give up the flowers, stripes, and prints.
Her response. "Sure, I could look ten or so pounds slimmer wearing plain black dresses, but when you are my size and over 200 pounds, what's looking ten pounds lighter going to do?"
She had attitude.
