FTFA: Webb's wife, Ada, says....

And he still got more ass than most farkers. In more than one sense.

How in the hell did he go to the bathroom? like seriously...

When he sits down, he means it.

Deputies say Webb had sores on his body and a "very bad odor."

Webb's wife says he didn't want help because he was ready to go to heaven and see Jesus.


I'm not sure if Jesus was too thrilled with the idea.

Are you saying that most farkers have an ass that is smaller than that of an 800-lb man? I don't know if I agree.

Still pretty funny that he died and now thinks he's going to meet Jesus. Sorry, bud. Game over.

Yeah. I thought about that after posting it. I had a bag of cheetos on my desk (seriously) and thought, "Hmmm...what I posted is likely not accurate, as I'd bet my last dollar that I'm not the only farker looking at a bag of cheetos right now."

Was he welded to the chair with his own feces and body grease?

There was some woman of a similar girth a year or two ago, reported in TF, who was thusly welded.

When EMT arrived after she croaked, they had to move her AND the couch out the door together, as they couldn't un-weld her from it (of course, this could only be accomplished after taking the door off its hinges and knocking the door frame out so the whole "couch/fat biatch" unit could fit out the door).

She says she cleaned the chair daily.

With what? A hose? They had to cut him from the chair.
 
2009-11-19 04:54:21 PM  
She says he weighed closer to 500 pounds

Oh OK. That makes it completely different.

Was he stuck??

Every time I hear one of these stories I can't help but wonder what kind of human being just sits there in their ever-increasing filth, and what kind of humans live there and watch it happen.

God, the smell... the smell must truly be the stuff of nightmares.

Just 15 minutes ago, I saw a 474-pound patient with an abdominal wound infection. I am so not getting a kick.

/She's 4'11" and her pannus ("muffintop") hangs down past her knees.
//Hey, she was 485 pounds two months ago!
///Eats at least two Big Macs a day as between-meal snacks.

"They met four years ago on MySpace, and Ada Webb said she didn't see a man who weighed more than 500 pounds, but instead saw a guy who loved the Lord and had a[n] big enlarged heart".

Are you suggesting gluttony is some sort of sin?! Patent nonsense.

I got fired from the Lazy Boy furnishings store. They said I wasn't working hard enough selling. I said: "Do you know where we are working?"

They don't mention that just a couple years ago he was a trim 620 and moving from the chair to the couch like a champ

Webb's body was physically stuck to the power recliner and firefighters had to cut him from the chair to take him to the hospital. He died a few hours later, his body covered with sores and a "very bad odor," according to a police report.

Webb, 33, didn't ask for help for all those months, because he was ashamed and didn't have health insurance, said his wife, Ada. He slept and used the bathroom in his chair and she cleaned it every day


the man was 550 pounds when he was put in the chair. he didn't leave the chair for 8 months and he lost 50 pounds to get down to 500? I seriously doubt that. he was 800.

From TFA:
550-pound man

Brief math lesson, subby. 550 lbs < 800 lbs.

Also from TFA:
"He's with Jesus now."

Not to be too judgmental but that's what bugs the hell out of me about Christians. No matter what evil they perpetrate in this world, they go to be with Jesus the second they die. Do they just not read the part of the Bible that talks about judgement and hell? Not all those who cry out "Lord, Lord" will go to heaven. Faith alone is not enough. You must also do the will of the heavenly Father. Sounds like this guy couldn't be bothered to do anyone's will except his own, sitting in a damn chair for eight months. And I'm pretty sure that, at 550 pounds, he's committed his fair share of gluttony. Which is still a sin, iirc.

Maybe the recliner had wooden slats.

As a Christian who believes healthcare is a right that the government has a duty to provide, I have to say, this guy is an idiot. There is nothing to be ashamed about if you are poor or lack insurance. It's much more shameful to allow yourself to die than to seek help. The body is the temple of the Lord. But I bet this guys "christian" friends hated healthcare, welfare or anything that the very socialist Jesus supported. I wonder if those people ever read the teachings of Christ of if they just accept the ignorant, greed based philosophies of their friends.

After a certain weight, everyone hates fatties.

They don't teach you this stuff is school, but if you sit in your own filth for 8 months...... you might die, no really, I read it on some guys blog.

I didn't know that was a word. How awesome.

/I just imagined a scenario where I compliment a woman on her pannus and pray that she doesn't know what that means.

Webb died on the couple's second anniversary.
"I had the worst anniversary yesterday I ever had" -Ada Webb (Widow)

Well I guess there was a 50/50 chance of that happening anyway.
 
2009-11-19 07:42:22 PM  
I bet ya Jesus said "Jesus Christ you are a fat fark"


/kinda nuts how long it could take someone in that bad of shape to die, he probably would have lived for 100 years if he wasn't a whale.
 
2009-11-19 07:42:26 PM  
Man that is incredibly sad.

Married only two years and dies on their anniversary. You'd think meeting someone you care about would be a catalyst in taking care of yourself so you don't WIDOW someone that young. =/

Dude seemed like he had to be depressed, even if he was social on the internet. Sad story all around.

There's also sloth, but we can definitely rule out pride.

BlorfMaster: texas...of course...


The title of the article is "Obese SC man dies after 8 months in home recliner." The article begins with COLUMBIA, S.C.

I guess that would be considered East Texas.
 
2009-11-19 07:46:52 PM  

oi_piss_me_off: ugh, he was only 33


That part got me too, deciding to just die in a chair of slovenliness at 33? The trailer park is truly a different world.
