In the short story, "That Lean and Hungry Look", Suzanne Britt compares fat people with thin people. The author really criticizes thin people. Some of the things she says gives thin people the feeling of being torn. For example, Britt states in her story, "Thin people turn surly, mean and hard at a young age because they never learn the value of a hot fudge sundae for easing tension." Although this is funny, if somebody who is thin that reads this, they may have the feeling of being torn.
Throughout this short story, Suzanne Britt really shows how fat people are more laid back and sincere than thin people. She shows this at the end of the story by ending with, "Fat people have plenty of room. Fat people will take you in." I think this quote is important because it helps show what Suzanne thinks about fat people.
