horizontally gifted:

A politically correct way of calling someone fat

Can horizontally gifted still be offensive? Or is it an absolutely safe way to describe someone overweight if we have to find the right words to do it, without hurting anyone?

  • I’ve heard that plump is a less hurtful term than fat. – k1eran Nov 23 '18 at 19:58

This is absolutely sarcasm rather than polite or politically correct. Don’t use it.
