She ain't heavy, she's my...oh wait, she is heavy.
2002-03-19 11:38:27 AM  
why bother?
2002-03-19 11:38:36 AM  
8.2 pounds per minute. Is that good?
2002-03-19 11:38:53 AM  
Someone let her get to 790 lbs? Man, that's just awful.
2002-03-19 11:39:05 AM  
I am soooo glad there's no picture. I really have no interest in what a person looks like at 740lbs. No wonder she was having difficulty breathing. She's so big, light would bend around her.
2002-03-19 11:39:06 AM  
Why didn't they just roll her out?
2002-03-19 11:39:46 AM  
holy crap. the last 18 links HAVE NOT been from cosmiverse.. Drew must not be receiving checks from them anymore
2002-03-19 11:39:47 AM  
They should have thrown in some potatoes and carrots and wrapped her in foil.
2002-03-19 11:39:56 AM  
Ever seen What's Eating Gilbert Grape?
2002-03-19 11:39:59 AM  
Why did they bother getting her out at all?

One big pig roast
2002-03-19 11:40:02 AM  
Labored breathing? No way! Must be all that extra poundage she's packing.
2002-03-19 11:40:32 AM  
They shoulda just rolled her in flour and aimed...wait, wrong joke.
2002-03-19 11:41:14 AM  
Come on,
it's just a little mint wafer.....

2002-03-19 11:41:32 AM  
What a waste of taxpayer money
2002-03-19 11:41:35 AM  
Roll her in flour and aim for the deep fryer?
2002-03-19 11:41:38 AM  
Couldn't they use the water pump on the fire truck to do an emergency liposuction?

a delicious shake for breakfast, another for lunch, and a sensible meal for dinner...
2002-03-19 11:42:52 AM  
Where is Jared when you need him.
2002-03-19 11:44:03 AM  
Dodgeball victim
2002-03-19 11:44:31 AM  
Someone should introduce her to Jared and those yummy subway sandwiches
2002-03-19 11:44:51 AM  
Or 7.2 seconds per pound. Not too flabby- I mean shabby.
2002-03-19 11:44:59 AM  
at this point in her life, airlift her fat ass over kenya, and pray to god she catches a flesh eating virus like marbug or ebola.
2002-03-19 11:45:32 AM  
Wow. You all are amazingly restrained today.
2002-03-19 11:46:14 AM  
Mmmm, french fried fat-ass.
2002-03-19 11:47:10 AM  
Her pimp daddy responsible for her addiction, it all started with a single french fry.

Well, guess not. Decent flick, plus it has the solution to this problem.

How someone got to be this big, is beyond me.
2002-03-19 11:48:34 AM  
I've seen it. Good flick. Didn't she die before the fire tho?
2002-03-19 11:48:38 AM  
2002-03-19 11:49:23 AM  

Say where's Arnie.
2002-03-19 11:49:58 AM  
Isn't there a point, say around when a person hits 500 pounds, that most people would say, "Hey, maybe I could stand to lose a couple pounds?"
2002-03-19 11:50:45 AM  
Gilbert Grape wasnt the first movie reference that jumped into my head.

Remember Seven?

"having difficulty breathing", no shiat.

People over 400 pounds should be distributed among the starving children of the world.
2002-03-19 11:53:48 AM  
740lbs! That's six skinny people. Great googleymoogley!
2002-03-19 11:53:53 AM  
Oh yeah, she did die before the fire.

Oh well, still a good solution!
2002-03-19 11:55:44 AM  
If she caught on fire, the care takers better have a huge pan lid to slam down on top of her...or a metric shiat ton of baking soda.
2002-03-19 11:56:08 AM  
Frolixo: That would solve so many problems, it isn't even funny
2002-03-19 11:56:56 AM  
I'm not just talking fat, I'm talkin' orca fat.
2002-03-19 11:57:02 AM  
not even close.
2002-03-19 11:57:17 AM  
My wife works in the OR so I get all the stories about fatso (and their whining). Even simple OR procedures for normal people can be very serious for fat people. Even just intubating a fatso can be dang near impossible. Oh, its not their fault anyways. Its a gland problem. And Ive mentioned in other threads about the impact of obesity on the healthcare system. Twice more that tobacco and four times alcohol. And that's a guess because this epidemic is so new that they dont really know how much money these fatso are going to cost the rest of us in the next ten years.
2002-03-19 11:57:37 AM  
BoCoMoFo, that's farking awful. It's pitiful that these people are so miserable that they literally eat themselves to death.
2002-03-19 11:57:39 AM  
I'd have let her fat ass burn. With that much blubber you could have toasted marshmallows for a week.

PS: BoCoMoFo, you are one sick individual. I have now lost my appetite.
2002-03-19 11:57:40 AM  
Americans. So bloody rich that we're eating ourselves to death while half the world starves. Ay, caramba...
2002-03-19 11:58:19 AM  
That chick is seeeeeeeeeeeeexy! Whew!
2002-03-19 11:58:27 AM  
People over 400 pounds should be distributed among the starving children of the world.

That's just too much fat to feed to those children. I wonder if you could liposution it out and then burn it as an alternative fuel source...
