An uptempo, harmony-laden poppy number about a short-tempered, rotund gentleman who seems to be everywhere I go.

Maybe he's pissed because there's strangers out there writing cheerful tunes about him calling him 'fatso'.
But really, he was asking for it.

That was hilarious. And catchy to boot.

This made me laugh out loud. The political correctness police will, of course, be gunning for your ass. Fuck 'em. This is good!

the beginning reminded me of ben folds, and then the harmonies kind of remind me of weird all. I enjoyed it.

I played this for the spouse, and it's been stuck in her head all day.
Occasionally, she'll sing the "angry fatso" chorus, realize she's doing it, and give me the stinkeye.

Thanks all! After a few days of silence right after I posted, now my confidence is sufficiently boosted to share more soon.

Man, this made me giggle. Good work, please do post more. Lyrics are very fun and your melodic writing and harmony vox arrangement really work well.
If you're looking for any constructive criticism, my only complaint is that your timing elements seem to be pretty loose—different parts stepping slightly out of time with each other, here and there—which is more of a problem with all the very bright staccato elements in the mix than it would be with something more vibey and lush, I suppose. It's not distractingly bad, but it's definitely something to work on going forward, because the rest of the production is really solid in general.
Anyway, welcome to Music!
