Speaking from experience as an early childhood educator: If that child was below school age and talking like that, you've really only got the parents to blame (even if it wasn't the parents that taught it, I'd say it's the parents fault for exposing him to people that would teach him that). The second possibility is that he genuinely didn't know that would be hurtful, and was just using a describing word (fat) that he had learned in another context.
Tell him that maybe if his mother had swallowed the world could have been spared from yet another obnoxious child.
I have a feeling if you had won, the kid would throw a fit and/or be a sore loser.
