An example of the useless area that can be removed.

Research states, that one in three, or 58 million American adults aged 20 to 74 are overweight. The increasing obesity 'epidemic' has swept the nation so fast that as you can expect, every budding entrepreneur has stuck his finger in the fatty honeypot of get fit quick schemes, and 'lose 2 stone in 10 days' scams.

Many people have their opinions on obesity, and of course weight loss programmes. Also many people love to throw out insightful comments in a vain attempt to improve the situation, for example, Virginia Foxx, Congresswoman of North Carolina states "Obesity among young Americans is a serious problem that can have serious ramifications in the long run." I'd like to point out that obese people are obese simply because of the fact that they don't take long runs.

All these 'insightful' comments fail to solve the obesity problem, but finally there is a solution.

Obese and overweight people have dreamt of the miracle cure for centuries, even before the obesity epidemic, and finally it has come, thanks to Russian surgeon, Vladimir Ruskin. Dr. Ruskin researched for years in search of a quick weight loss system, and he finally came up with the ingenious solution; amputation.

Patients have never been lighter, some losing up to 5 stone in one visit, with a quick procedure. Patients report that Ruskin is a delightful man, full off wit and charm, and they are amazed by how simple their weight loss has been. Dr. Ruskins thriving surgery consults with 30 patients per day, all flocking to see the results for themselves, first hand.

So, at last a solution to the obesity epidemic. Amputation.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
