    Look, he changed Mr. Burke and helped him get thin, he helped Caulfield learn to swim, maybe this year it will be Coach’s turn.

    Knightman is right. Frazz is one of those people who feels he can say anything he wants, no matter how rude, with the excuse that he is “just being honest”.

    And why should the genius Frazz assume that Hacker can’t hack it? Shouldn’t he be open to the shocking possibility that a fat dumb guy might be able, somehow, to do something as well as he can? Mallet would do well to stop being so predictable, and surprise us. For once, maybe Frazz could actually be wrong.

    do you mean to say that Frazz should actually learn about humility? that seems to be on the short list of things he doesn’t know

    If it were to happen, it would be an either/or — Frazz could never be both humble AND wrong.

    @ananomoose Not only would nobody notice, but at Walmart, he might not be the only one there in nothing but his underwear.
    And I love the subtle commentary on our society’s “quick fix”, “there must be a trick to success” mindset. It works, right down to some readers’ insistence that this must be a stab at fat people, because a skinny person could do it. “Welcome to McDonald’s can I take your order?” “I’ll have a large success, with a side of fame. I think that is the number 2 on the Value Menu.”

    I see the point you’re making, sketchum31, but you have missed mine. Mallett/Frazz go after the same easy (fat) victims day in and day out. Only Mallett could say if he’s taking a stab at fat people; I have not suggested that that’s the intent. I just find Frazz’s sense of superiority, and Mallett’s insistence on playing it up, to be really, really odd.

    And in any case, if you are right — that the self-deluding are to be mocked — what does that say about you and Mallett? Who enjoys making fun of pathetic losers? Aren’t we supposed to satirize the crooked successful people in society? Making fun of someone like Hacker is simply mean.
