Tubby Black’s Fitness for Felons

He plans “a fierce pursuit of fitness and weight-loss… My plan is to divide the number of days I have to serve by the number of pounds I hope to lose, keeping in mind the range of sticks and carrots with which my superhumanly fat-averse wife will reward performance, and downsize myself toward liberty in increments”.
–Conrad Black in The Independent, Oct. 9, 2011.

Of course, Duffy had no business expensing his physical trainer, but from appearances, the trainer has not been notably successful anyway. Mike is no fitness magazine centrefold…
–Conrad Black, National Post, April 29, 2016.

    Question of the day- who is the bigger lard arse and poseur, Tubby or Puffy?

    Sticks and carrots from Babs? Does this mean they engage in S and M on a fairly regular basis?

    Mike is no fitness magazine centrefold… Why did Tubby feel he had to use his towering intellect to tell us, the great unwashed, a blindingly obvious thing like that?

    After 42 months in Coleman Correctional Center [prison] near Orlando, inmate 18330-424 was saying to the Globe and Mail’s Paul Waldie (May 13, 2012).

    “…Now that he is out of jail and back home in Toronto, Conrad Black plans to keep a low public profile and concentrate on selling an updated version of his latest book. He might also try to lose some weight.”

    An eternal battle, as with the Puffster.

    Frank staff, of course, are lean and hungry. [J. C. Act 1, scene 2, lines 190–195]

    Aside from, er, convictions, the two seem to differ only in that Tubby knows which fork is for his salad,
    and the Puffster could care less, as long as it gets food into his mouth.
