The Yogo Pants Controversy: Subtitled: OMG I’m Freakin’ Fat!!!!


Just don’t give it all that you’ve got if you’re overweight

The founder of “Lululemon,” which has nothing to do with British singing artist “Lulu” or lemons, but is a designer of yoga clothes and running gear, seems to be in a bit of hot water for some comments the company’s founder said recently in an interview on Bloomberg TV’s “Street Smart.”

This was in reference to how some athletic clothing just doesn’t seem to fit right on certain people. Like, um….overweight people.

Perhaps you may have seen an overweight person wearing yoga clothes and said to yourself, “OMG!”

BUT…that said, most of us, observing a very overweight person in a speedo or wearing yoga clothing, would simply keep those thoughts to ourselves, as well as suppressing any thoughts about having sex until that image of an overweight person in a speedo or yoga clothing gets outta our brain.

Not to mention other hazards when you attend a yoga class:



I for one, being slightly overweight, would never go out in public with bulges showing. Unless it was a bulge similar to one that former Congressman Anthony Weiner displayed. I’m shallow that way.


The infamous Weiner bulge. Not to be confused with the infamous MisfitWisdom bulge. (no photos available)

Soooo, bring on the founder of “Lululemon,” Chip Wilson, who in all of his infinite wisdom, said in response to a question about complaints that some of their yoga pants are prone to “piling.” His response: “Frankly some women’s bodies just actually don’t work for it.”

“Piling” is when things pile on top of one another. I would assume the complaints are related to various body parts, namely bulges, piling on top of one another when one wears yoga clothing.

But, he continued to explain by saying, “They don’t work for some women’s bodies. It’s really about the rubbing through the thighs, how much pressure is there over a period of time, how much they use it.”

(I know this sounds sexual, but get that thought out of your mind ya damn perverts)


I’m wearing “Lululemon” pants

Step in Wilson’s wife Shannon who added, “What’s the use and what’s it being up against? Are you sitting on cement ground?”

Now I’m no rocket scientist when it comes to figuring out stuff, but I’m assuming they meant that if you’re overweight you shouldn’t be wearing tight-fitting yoga pants because it ain’t gonna make you look hot.  As far as the “rubbing through the thighs” comment, I guess Wilson meant that ya better be careful or you could start a fire with all that thigh rubbing stuff going on. My guess anyhow.

I have no idea what the hell his wife meant by “sitting on cement ground.” Do these two speaka da English?


Why cats never have to do yoga

Meanwhile the interviewer on the show, Trish Regan responded by asking, “Interesting, not every woman can wear a Lululemon yoga pants?”

At which point Chip Wilson replied, “No I think they can. I think it’s just how you use it.”

How you use it? WTF! Like, are there directions?

If you’re overweight and “use it” I’m assuming you’re just “using it” and what other way is there to “use it” but to freakin’ wear it? Unless you have someone else “use it” for you who’s thinner. Then I guess you then “used it” the correct way. In which case, Chip was right when he said, “I think it’s just how you use it.” Makes sense to me.


If your cat is freaked out when you bend over to feed it, do NOT wear yoga pants or speedos

There of course was an immediate backlash to those comments by angry Facebook and Twitter users. I’m, again, assuming, these are the same Facebook users who get upset when I use the word “fart” and censor me.

They called for a boycott of the brand saying, “Owner/founder is clueless and a sexist.” And, “Won’t be buying your products after your recent public comments.” AND…”My wish is that this brand goes down the drain.” And finally, “Shame on you for the roundabout way of calling women fat.”

Geez…..Chip and his wife better join Edward Snowden and seek asylum in Russia immediately. Don’t wanna piss off a bunch of fat angry women. Oops…, sorry….I didn’t mean to imply that women are fat…um…..just some of them. HEY! If the freakin’ Nike fits, wear it for cripes sake.


Need I say more?

Otherwise listen to what the hell this guy is sayin.’ Which is, if you’re overweight and you’re walkin’ around wearing yoga pants and your ripples are showing it’s NOT the “Lululemon” clothing that’s making you look fat! Could it be that you’re just fat and you should perhaps be wearing loose-fitting clothing? OMG! Logic!

So the owners spokeith the truth and now a bunch of overweight women wanna have both of them tarred and feathered. Gimmie a freakin’ break here.

Hmmmm. Let me see if I can put this in perspective for all of you.

I’d love to wear a wife beater shirt. You know, the ones that show all of your muscles and hairy chests. BUT… I stupid enough to wear one out in public without having animals barf and women gag? NO! Because I have brains enough to know I wouldn’t look good in a muscle shirt. Doesn’t take an Einstein to figure that one out.


Um, suppose yer not married….any girlfriend beater shirts available?

Sooooo, if I were overweight would I wear a yoga outfit out in public and then feel insulted if someone said, “OMG…look at that fat person.” Or get all bent outta shape because the “Lululemon” founders said their clothing just doesn’t work for some people. Then get ballistic and post stupid comments on Facebook and Twitter. NOT!!!

So as far as my humble opinion is concerned, this is yet another to do about nothing. Ya wanna boycott “Lululemon” because they basically said what is true, which is that fat people should not wear tight-fitting yoga pants, then go ahead.

Your choice. But keep this in mind…have ya ever seen a fat superhero wearing tight clothes?


Oops….sorry….I forgot about “Fatwoman.”

Anyhow…..when you’re out there doing yoga stuff and your pilings are piling like Jello molds think of me in a wife beater shirt. Not a pretty sight.

So… me, I’m sparing small children and animals from a traumatic experience and wearing loose-fitting clothing when I do yoga or jog around the track.

Lest the ASPCA and my local PTA file charges against me for indecent exposure of senior fat Jello piling molds.

Just sayin.’

      First of all Charles, YOU are not FAT! Secondly, if you were fat, then yes, you would be saving the lives of hundreds of innocent animals who would be traumatized.
