“You can’t be fat and mean, Andrea…. If you’re gonna dish it out, you gotta be able to lick it up. Fat people are jolly for a reason. Fat repels people, but joy attracts them. Now I know everyone’s laughing at your cruel jokes but nobody’s inviting you to the prom. So you can either be fat and jolly, or a skinny bitch. It’s up to you.”
