"There's an elephant in the room, and it is you"

PETA president Ingrid Newkirk to Michael Moore (PDF file), on the release of his new film about America's health care system:

Although we think that your film could actually help reform America’s sorely inadequate health care system, there’s an elephant in the room, and it is you. With all due respect, no one can help but notice that a weighty health issue is affecting you personally. We’d like to help you fix that. Going vegetarian is an easy and life-saving step that people of all economic backgrounds can take in order to become less reliant on the government’s shoddy healthcare system, and it’s something that you and all Americans can benefit from personally.

PETA's never been known for tact.

Oh, heck, let's pile on with some Weird Al:

My relatives aren't used to tact, either. I was at my Great Aunt Grace's funeral a few weeks ago, and just after the funeral, my Great Aunt Hazel noticed, out loud, how fat I'd gotten since the days of my youth.

The pathetic part is that it's really only twenty pounds or so. Great Aunt Hazel has strict standards.
