Don't call me fatso or I'll sit on you

The Herald reports that 'supersize uniforms are being made to fit ever-larger children, and an Auckland school outfitter says it is now making school shorts with a 140cm waist and size 15 shoes.  School uniform manufacturer Underwoods says the national average had jumped by about six sizes over 50 years as boys and girls get taller and fatter'
Article linked below includes excellent picture of a flag-sized pair of shorts 'for obese boys'.
