When my friend, Grimmy, who works in a fast-passed, high-stress job for Ralph Lauren, quit smoking after nearly 20 years, he naturally gained weight. But, and you must understand that my friend has never minced words nor taken crap from anybody (at least he won't admit to doing so), he was shocked -- shocked! -- at not only how fat he'd gotten, but that nobody seemed to care that he quit his nasty habit. To get back and the world that now looked at him askance -- for he was fat -- Grimmy created a line of simple, straight-forward T-shirts that say: I'm Not Fat. I Quit Smoking.
I don't know that he's lost any of the weight, but at least he has a bunch of XXL T-shirts he can wear to explain what happened. Knowing how creative Grim is, I think he could've done more with the design, but the message is funny as hell.
Just quit smoking? Gaining weight? Get a T-shirt and tell the world to fuck off.
