"Fat bus" is a slang term that originated in Basingstoke, England, and refers to a mythical vehicle that supposedly arrives in town on hot summer days to collect and remove all the "fat and ugly" women, leaving the attractive ones behind. The bus then proceeds to its drop-off site in Basingstoke city centre. The term is often used humorously, but it can also be seen as offensive and derogatory.

The origin of the "fat bus" is unclear, but it is likely that the term arose from a combination of factors, including the stereotype of Basingstoke as a town with a large population of overweight people and the tendency of people to make light of their own perceived flaws. The term is also likely to have been influenced by the popular culture of the time, which often depicted overweight people as unattractive and undesirable.

The "fat bus" is a humorous and often offensive term that reflects the prejudices and stereotypes of the time. It is important to remember that the term is not based on reality and that all people, regardless of their size or appearance, deserve to be treated with respect.
