Storyline

Mr. Burns institutes a new calisthenics program at work. Most employees enjoy the morning workout, except Homer, who is too lazy. He finds out that if he goes in disability, he will be exempt from the exercises. He finds hyper-obesity among the list of disability, so he gorges himself on food to balloon up to 300 pounds.

Trivia

After Homer reached his target weight of 300 pounds, he went to shop for new, larger clothes at a store called The Vast Waistband. This refers to a speech delivered on 9 May 1961 by then-FCC chair Newton Minow, in which he said that "When television is good, nothing... is better. But when television is bad, nothing is worse." He then described overall TV content as "...a vast wasteland." The phrase "vast wasteland" has been used ever since to criticize television programming. See more »

During Homer's fantasy of being fat, Ned is seen coming home and when Homer's asked him about his day Ned says that "Yeah, a crazy guy shot a bunch of people and the subway ran over my hat." This indicates he has an office job but in reality he runs The Leftorium. See more »
