Guess you dont get the snickers reference. It has nothing to do with weight.

She said "many people" think it's okay to make rude remarks about weight. She wasn'ti ncluding herself in "many people."   And really? Are you so naive as to think there aren't thousands (hundreds of thousands?) of people out there making fun of others for being too fat or too skinny?

She said she knows that many people do think it's okay.  She didn't say she knew the people that think it's okay.  Really, a simple grasp of the English language would be helpful here.

I get the reference, Spring. But what evidence would you have that Regina is hungry?

Forget bilingual. I'm starting to doubt monolingual.

Our ESL friends have a far better grasp of the language, that's for sure.
