South African Chef Told He Is Too Fat To Live In New Zealand

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Authorities in New Zealand have told a South African chef he is too fat to be allowed to live in the country.


Immigration officials said Albert Buitenhuis, who weighs 130kg (286 pounds), did not have an acceptable standard of health.

He now faces expulsion despite shedding 30kg since he moved to the city of Christchurch six years ago."


New Zealand has one of the highest obesity rates in the world, and they don`t need another lard ass in the mix. New Zealand accepting an obese immigrant is like Russia accepting an alcoholic immigrant.

An overweight cook is an abomination, akin to a drug dealer who shoots up his own supply. I commend the fat cook for going from 360 to 286 pounds, but he needs to lose some more weight if he wants to stay in New Zealand. He should call Jenny Craig or a good lawyer.

Buitenhuis should immediate be deported, and I hope that the airline that takes him home charges passengers by the pound.
