Obese people create problems for the world. Obese people are portrayed as lazy, so then they don’t get jobs. If they don’t have a job then the economy gets worse because they aren’t working and will become homeless. Also, by being obese and without a job, they can get sick and need to be treated but with no way to pay for it which is another dent in the economy.

Obese people need to change. They need to stop being lazy and get skinnier. Thankfully, there is a solution to help the obese along. The solution is for the obese to starve themselves by super gluing their mouth shut. The super glue is so they don’t give into temptation of eating; it’s challenging to starve oneself, so the super glue is there to help. This solution will not only help obese people, but the economy too.

This proposal is satirical and in being so, it will attract people to see what they’re saying and doing is wrong. This proposal is saying the opposite of the message that needs to get across. The overall message is to stop judging obese people.

Um, so I don't think that this essay is complete. Sure, I got the message to not judge obese people, but what happens next? Personally, I think that you should have added other things that makes readers know info on how to help these obese people. Obesity isn't just a normal case. On severe cases, it can even result to death. Which is why I was searching for something more in this satirical proposal.
