Happy Purim!!

Happy Purim!!

I Googled Purim and fat for a while, and of course most of it was drama about the horror of a holiday that God forbid features cookies.

But I did find Queer Fat Femme's "Get Me Embodied: Bevin’s Story of Disembodiment" from last March, illustrated with photos of Jews for Racial and Economic Justice (JFREJ)'s Purim Ball (last year's theme was "bodies").

And on BeliefNet there was "Mardi Purim (There are many similarities between Mardi Gras and Purim, and nowhere are they clearer--or more fun--than here in New Orleans)".

And there was a Jewish humor page that was pretty positive. I think my favorite is --

Patient: "How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?"

Doctor: "Well, if you have a body and you have fat, your ratio is one to one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one...".
