image for Obese boy to wear big shoes to see feet
Obesity is a growing problem.

Asteroid attractor Connor McGreedy, the Geordie boy who just can't say no to food, is to be allowed to wear clown shoes so that he can see his feet. Connor, who is from Wallsend and, on a particularly obese day, adjoining Byker, hasn't seen his toes since he went from being merely overweight to frighteningly obese.

The eight-year-old, who weighs in at just over 40 stone, will be given a pair of half metre long red clown shoes by psychiatrist Ivor Complex. Dr Complex says the shoes are vital to ensuring that the boy does not grow up with foot envy, a condition which can, if left untreated, lead to a foot fetish in later life.

In an attempt to help the boy lose weight, the doctor tried to introduce him to vegetables, but soon realised that the task was beyond him.

'I brought young Connor a bag of veg,' said the doctor. 'I began by taking out a carrot and showing it to him.'

'What's that?' asked the boy.

'It's a carrot.'

'It's a what?'

'It's a carrot.'

'It's a what?'

'It's a carrot.'

'It's a what?'

'Never mind.'

Connor's mother, 35 and not obese, says she has tried hard to stop her boy eating so much.

'I bought a padlock for the fridge,' she said. 'But Connor ate it.'

North Tyneside local authority had threatened to place Connor into care in an effort to help him shed the pounds. But they could find nowhere large enough to house the boy.
