UK designer's tote bags rag on 'fat American' families7/25/2012
Designer Toby Leigh's already sold-out line of sarcastic Olympics-themed tote bags have become a must-have in London, especially the one that says "I'm renting my flat to a fat American family." Your feelings about that sentiment might depend on your own BMI (we're waddling behind two other nations on the “World's Fattest Country” list, but the more accurate "fat Micronesian family" might not be a big seller), but we did snicker at the equally stereotypical design that reads "They're all on steroids." Leigh says that his bags are a hit because of two things: "people being a bit pissed off and because … we like laughing at things." Especially at oversize Americans. [Source]
Are the bags cheeky or a cheap shot?
