:::: UPDATE :::: Evidence is mounting that "Cheryl" was a hoax dreamed up by the morning show hosts on Fargo's Y94 radio station.

"Cheryl" called in to vent about fat trick-or-treaters about a year after a caller named "Donna" called the same show to sound off about those damn deer crosswalks (i.e., deer crossing signs) that seem to route deer onto busy roads. Nothing is known of "Cheryl" or "Donna" beyond their bizarre calls to the station, and their last names haven't been revealed.

Furthermore, a former employee of Y94 told Forum Communications the Cheryl bit was almost certainly fake.

"It's their shtick, that's their thing, it's what they are kinda famous for," John Austin said, referring to Rat, Zero and Maggie, the hosts of Y94's Morning Playhouse show. "Kudos to those guys for pulling it off, but the problem becomes you have to be careful how many times you go to that well."

Y94 hasn't responded to press inquiries about Cheryl.


Original post (October 30) -- Talk about the worst trick-or-treating treat ever.

A North Dakota woman on a one-person crusade to do something about America's obesity epidemic plans to give portly kids who come to her door on Halloween a note addressed to their parents that says, "Your child is, in my opinion, moderately obese, and should not be consuming sugar and treats to the extent of some children this Halloween season."

Here's the entirety of her letter:

Valley News Live

The woman, identified in reports only as Cheryl, called Fargo-area radio station Y94 yesterday to further explain her motivations as her letter made the rounds on social media.

"I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight," she said. "I think it's just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just 'cause all the other kids are doing it."

As a wise man once said, Cheryl, don't hate the player -- hate the game.

Not that I gave a fuck in the first place about something I have no control over (someone's an egregious asshat? That NEVER happens!), but the thing that pisses me off is that there are going to be people 20 years from now passing this along as if it were a real thing. Just like the hypodermic needles under the gas pump, or alligators in the sewers of New York, or the pet snake that was "measuring" its owner to see if it could eat her, or...

This was reported by every news organization nationally. Freakin' bunch of idiots. As if the person planning to do this would release her intentions in advance.

Yeah, yeah, this woman got her 15 minutes of semi-anonymous fame.

Now, let's see if anyone calls a  TV station reporting getting one of these letters. I'm sure they will be highly offended. LOL!

An adult telling a kid they are too fat to have a treat one time a year, when the bulk of the holiday is based on getting treats and plenty of other kids are getting what they asked for, is definitely the right way to motivate them. Riiiiiiight. How about just don't hand out any candy? Or stick to raising her own kids, if she has any.

I think I'm going to go to Fargo and hand out eggs, soap and toilet paper to chubby kids so that they can Trick their heart out on this heartless sanctimommy.

Halloween is the one time of year I (personally) think it's okay for kids (even the chubsters) to eat nutritionally void, sugary little gems. Why? Because it's ONE DAY a year. Does this woman really think that humiliating children and preventing them from eating candy on this one day a year is going to fix the childhood obesity problem? 

Parents already know their kids are fat. Because, most likely, the parents are fat. Fat shaming some 8 years olds isn't going to do anything other than teach them to be ashamed of themselves, which perpetuates the cycle of disordered eating. Don't we do enough of that as a society already? 

Yes, things need to change. No, this is not the way. Who gives a shit what some lady from Fargo thinks anyway?

I just make the fat ones do push-ups before I give them their Snickers.

Also, there is a typo in her note. It says "You child" instead of "your child". She might want to edit that before distributing it.

instead of paper, why dont give out raisins or choc covered raisins or how about lil bags of apples or small popcorn... to show kids who dont usually get that stuff that hey they are good :) .... and to let you know you can have 3 kids feed them the same and because of the way the body works 1 may still be a junky monkey.... so it is NOT all the time the parents fault, well maybe it is there genes sooo yea

Who really cares?  Its North Dakota and the bitch will get like six trick or treaters.  Isn't the population like 400 for the whole state or something?

Honestly I don't mind this.  She will take shit for it and that is how it is supposed to go.  What does bug me is she doesn't leave her name.  Anonymous douche shitting on fat kids.  Leave your name, take responsibility, and deal with the consequences of what you did.  It is cowardly to do it, and then hide.

@TheConservativeJerk  - Your point? They also handed out M&Ms, jelly beans and cookies.


Bonus: Some dried fruit is quite delicious.

@Mark Witte 

When I was young we ate all those things in moderation. The difference was we couldn't be kept indoors in even the most freezing weather. Now, kids would rather sit in front of a computer screen or TV set. It saddens me that parents allow this.

This lady will get more than eggs.  Just a way to make yourself a target.  And how did this get to national news before the letters were handed out?  She wanted the very small amount of fame.  Now rocks in windows will happen.

@qwertyuiop She probably doesn't have any kids. It's always the ones who don't have children that have all the "right answers" on how to raise them.
