I'm sure they said the free curry puffs were this way...

begin attenborough: and the underwater creature dives curiously into the deep to forage for food, with plenty of blubber stocked in its body it fights the cold temperatures of the oceans below

end attenborough

I'd suggest this is a rather thoughtless thread, designed to make fun of someone. Why?

It's not about the person, it's about the situation.

I was imagining we might start with this pic, then me and other people could add further 'silly pix' later.

Maybe you have such a contribution?

No, it's about the denigration of an individual that doesn't meet the current standards for beauty. Had that been a lithe, blonde body on the same underwater device, you would have had a completely different take.

As it is, you want someone to "caption" this photo... and for what purpose? You've already seen two less than complimentary responses.

Time to wake up, JR8. What was your expectation with this post?

Interestingly enough, I met a woman who looked like an older Kate Middleton a few weeks ago.

Had to keep myself from staring because it was in a business context.

Whoa - hold on a second. My comment had nothing whatsoever to do with the physique of the person in the photo, but was based on the stereotypical image of some Singaporeans being willing to do anything in exchange for a free curry puff, plastic toy, ice cream, etc.

If light-heated humour based on nationalistic 'traits' is now out of order, are we going to ban all those thousands of Englishman, Irishman and Scotsman jokes too?

On the other hand, personally I found Raj's comment about 'blubber' to be unfunny and in bad taste though.

Well, considering India's performance at Old Trafford today (8 for 4 after 6 overs, now 152 all out as I'm typing this), I'd suggest the following caption:

Her Royal Highness gives some expert guidance on defensive batting to the Indian team. :twisted:

I find your references to gender and race distasteful.
