New Zealand officials have told a South African man he is too fat to continue living in the country. An immigration spokesman says if a person is considered obese by the BMI scale, they'll investigate. It's because of the higher health risks for overweight people, which is an expensive problem for a country that has an obesity problem. Patrick Jones (@Patrick_E_Jones) has the rest.
