Jesus Loves Fat-Smelly Kids

The Point


Every school class has the same basic roles: the class clown, the handsome athlete, the rich kid, the nerd, the awkward musician, the fat-smelly kid, etc. Every student has problems and redeeming qualities alike—every student.

I was the awkward musician. And I always liked fat-smelly kids. Because the secret about the fat-smelly kids is, they really are cool. But most people don’t see it until everybody grows up.

Politically, France is the class clown, America the athletic jerk, and China the fat-smelly kid. Everyone has honest potential and we all need to grow up.
