Should Richard Simmons ever decide to produce the exercise video "Sweatin' With Ween," he should begin the workout with "I'm Fat," a cautionary tale about the dangers of overeating told with the sensitivity and understanding that are hallmarks of all of Deaner and Gener's work. "Well, I got big tits and I can't reach my dick when I wanna take a piss/I'm fat," sings Calvin Celcius (aka, Mickie Moist of Moistboyz fame). "I eat a big bag of chips and take smelly sh*ts/I never take a bath/I'm fat." That's it -- and really, what else is there to say? That this sad, touching tale of morbid obesity should be accompanied by a jaunty electro-country melody is even more sad and touching -- Ween uses humor to mask the pain, and in doing so reaches out to the fat f*ck in all of us. Bless you boys.
