No chubbies in New Zealand

Maybe if we start lobbying now, we could get this put in the next comprehensive immigration reform bill.
New Zealand immigration officials are keeping a U.K. wife from joining her husband "down under" because they say she is too fat, the Daily Mail reports.

Now we know why Michael Moore never went to New Zealand for medical treatment in "Sicko."
