    [SIZE="4"]Beauty salon slaps 'fat tax' on curvier customers[/SIZE]

    A London beauty salon has slapped curvier customers with a so-called "fat tax," saying they use up more materials.

    MM Bubbles - a salon in South Kensington offering manicures, pedicures, waxing and body wraps - has started charging women from size 12 upwards a fee of 5 (NZ$10) for a 45-minute leg wax.

    Women that are a size 18 and over are being asked for 10 (NZ$20) pound more.

    An undercover customer was sent to the salon by The Sun newspaper. The size 22 to 24 woman was reportedly told by beauty staff, "I know maybe for you it is not very nice but I use more stuff".

    Can't argue with that.

    If someone quotes you a price for repainting your car, you can't bring a bus and expect the same rate can you?
    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    Bacon owes me a computer cleaning bill. I just sprayed it with the drink I was having from laughing too hard.
