The worst restaurant marketing idea. Ever.

According to Hotels Magazine online, the Oulton Hall hotel in Leeds, Yorkshire (U.K.) is going to start "weighing children and charging fat ones more for Sunday lunch."


Children weighing five stone (whatever the hell THAT is) will be charged five pounds, while children weighing 10 stone (whatever that hell THAT is too) will be charged 10 pounds. A hotel spokesman said this was the General Manager's idea. People who don't like it, he said (and I'm quoting here) "should get a life and stop being so miserable." That's the guy I want running MY public relations for sure.

By the way, here at Nasuti + Hinkle, we've raised our rates for people who are more than seven feet tall, wear a hat size smaller than 4 and weigh in at more than 22 stone.

Whatever the hell THAT is.
