Woman Plans to Hand out Halloween Fat Letters

Trick-or-treat will be taking on a whole new meaning this year, now that a North Dakota woman plans on handing out "obesity" letters to overweight kids this year.

The woman, who identified herself as Cheryl, called into Y94 radio station in Fargo to say that she will be addressing moms and dads in the letter, telling them that they should "step up as a parent" and not let their "moderately obese" kids indulge in so much candy.

The letter, which she emailed to the station, reads in part: "You [sic] child is, in my opinion, moderately obese and should not be consuming sugar and treats to the extent of some children this Halloween season."

When asked by the DJs why she wouldn't just hand out stickers or toys, according to FoxNews.com, she responded that she didn't want to be the "mean lady" in the neighborhood.

Uh, too late.

"I'd love to have her back on Friday morning and see if she went through with giving those letters out," Corey "Zero" Schaffer, one of the radio show's hosts, told FoxNews.com.
