Chosen One of the Day: The adipose from Doctor Who

When taken, the weight loss pill from Adipose Industries does just as expected: removes fat. But instead of slowly losing weight, the cute blobs of fat called adipose explode from the body of the person who took the pill —adorable baby aliens made of fat that escape from human bodies. Is this the dream or IS THIS THE DREAM?!

OK, so sure, they rip from the skin of the bodies and it looks painful but who among us hasn't suffered to try to lose weight? Not exactly a Weight Watchers situation here but technically they're still losing weight so WHERE IS THE LIE.

In the Season 4 episode of Doctor Who titled "Partners in Crime," Donna Noble (Catherine Tate) and the Tenth Doctor (David Tennant) reunite while trying to figure out just what some tiny balls of fat created by Adipose Industries are really up to.

The adipose are (sort of) the villain in the episode, but actually they are merely innocent bystanders. The adipose didn't choose to tear the fat from the bodies of humans. They'd probably be happy living as fat inside forever. They were the product of a nanny who just wanted to help her baby adiposes survive. Modern-day Mary Poppins, if you ask me.

If we've learned anything from Doctor Who it's that you shouldn't blame adorable fat blobs for the human murders committed by their evil alien nanny. Well, that and "don't blink."
