Expiatetion

mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: ex-pi-ate-shun

Sentence: Expiatetion is the prime factor that led to an entire generation of fat people. In the 50's, children grew up believing that if they ate all their food it would somehow make up for the suffering of starving kids in Europe who "would be happy to see that food". In the words of Alan Sherman, "They kept starving, and I got fat!"

Etymology: expiation: a means of atonement for wrongdoings or paying for a wrong + ate: past tense of eat Alan Sherman was a 1960s predecessor to Weird Al Yanckovic who made several records which changed the lyrics of songs. His most well known hit was "Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah." He died in 1973 at the age of 48 with diabetis and emphysema due largely to his weight. In the song, "Why I got Fat" he blamed his mother for making him clean his plate to help the starving children in Europe - something every kid growing up in the 50's and 60's heard from their mothers.
