I see you before. I know. You ah a more fatter than before. I think a you eat a too much. You should a take a die. Dying make you healthy. You, you are more thinly, you sexy, is that right? You wife is Mary. You is Mary. He like a you much thinly. You should die. Literal Translation: I've seen you before, and I can see now that you've gained weight. You must be eating too much. You should go on a diet.  Diets are good for you. 

If you were thinner, you'd be more sexy. Don't you agree? You're married and your wife would really appreciate it.  You should go on a diet. Idiomatic Translation: I just paid 8 months salary just to get into this class with a foreign teacher, so I have every right to insult you, the teacher, in every way possible.

So I see that you have a beer belly and you probably don't want to talk about it. 

Fatso. Did you have to hire Rand McNally to do your portrait photos? Was that an earthquake, or were you just tapping your foot again? Be careful not to trip, or you might roll away.

Ut oh, you're angry now. Alright, I'll try to say something nice. What I really meant was that being thin is really great, you know? I was just stating the benefits of slenderhood. Don't beat me up, please. You're great Mr. Jones. Sing another song for us.

The only students who talk about teachers being fat are little kids, and there's not a whole lot you can do about that, unless you have the pull to force a policy change where the Chinese staff enforce manners (which we did at my last place). Middle school students and above know better and are thrown out for being so brazenly crass. Side note: If little kids ask you why you're so fat, ask them why they're so damned short. Say, "Wow, you're the shortest person I've ever seen! Don't you eat meat?"
