Thin men go red, but fat men end up a dark, deep brown

COMMENT: All agencies must to held to account for Anne Savidge’s tragic death

Have your say

The sun coming out has left me puzzled about something. I’ve seen lots of skinny men and uber fat men, but not many medium-sized guys. Where have they gone?

And what is it about skinny men that leads them to tuck their shirts into their shorts and adopt a peacock strut while turning a bright shade of red?

Meanwhile those of larger proportions, with bellies that could shade a family of seven, are darkest, deepest brown.

There must be a correlation between weight gained and colour turned that only exists for men.

If someone could bottle that browning X factor and dish it out to the medium guys, they could finally emerge from hiding and take their place on the beach with pride.
