(If this doesn't make Leno tonight I'd be quite suprised)
The article basically says that if you have a fat ass, and need an injectible medication which is normally injected into the buttocks, you have a poor chance of the injection doing you much good, because much of the medicine will lodge in the fatty tissue, where it will not disperse properly into the bloodstream and thence to the rest of the body.
I guess that doctors will have to learn to recognize a fat ass and use a longer needle, but this could set off a new round of malpractice claims by egocentric fat people who are offended that the doc thought their ass was fatter than normal.
I can already see the late-night TV ads: Scene: lawyer's office. The lawyer, sitting at his desk, intones:
"Folks, have you been insulted or ass-saulted by your doctors when they used too long a needle to give you an injection? You know your ass isn't fatter than normal, and I can help you prove it in court. Call for a free consultation to 1-888-527-3288 (LARD BUT). We're here to restore your self-esteem, and unlike your doctor, it won't hurt when we stick it to you."
Hmmm, better leave this topic. I was about to go into the files and upload images.
