Another one? Their 600lb mascot died a couple years ago, at the ripe old age of 29.

I say they double down on it and run a "Die Happy" ad campaign featuring him.

I guess It must be a comfort to know how you are going to die.
 
2013-02-11 09:14:29 PM
Can't say we didn't expect this. In fact, it's pretty much the exact thing they advertise.
 
2013-02-11 09:14:46 PM
Truth in advertising...a rarity.

I don't know if there's been any research on the topic, but can a human being even do effective chest compressions on a 600 pound man?

Seems like once you reach those extreme of weights, that resuscitation is futile.

TFA said that guy died of pneumonia. Hey at least it wasn't a heart attack.

I lived in Las Vegas for awhile and trust me, this qualifies as big news in Las Vegas, Nothing happens in that town. The newspapers will report as much out of town news as they do local news. My favorite columnist was Norm, the guy with an eyepatch.

I thought it would be Adam from MvF. It's fun to see how much weight he has gained between seasons.

I wonder if his contract had some sort of clause about cholesterol or something? And the insurance claims if he had a heart attack. I can imagine a company really raising a stink about paying the bills.

I believe their marketing campaign confirms as much.

Maybe if you happen to need CPR in the middle of a strong-man competition?

He outlived the average caveman by about twenty years... So that's pretty good.

I heard an MD once say, "If you're doing them right, you'll probably fracture a rib or the sternum." Compression doesn't bring people back, though. It's almost a futile activity now. If you can't shock the heart back to some electrical activity, you're done.

you can use either a floor jack, that crushing device they used in the witch hunts, or a sumo wrestler.  Each is ordered in ascending hilarious ness.

Norm Clarke! I loved that guy when he was writing for the Rocky Mountain News and I was pissed when he ran off to Las Vegas.

Every see the show on travel channel that features this restaurant? The owner is creepy as fark. Says he started out as a nutritionist but since he saw so many people overweight he figured they weren't listening to him, so he decided to open this place to help them reach their goals quicker. I swear he had a sparkle in his eye when he talked about the morbidity of it all. I think he enjoys thinking he is helping people die.

Heart attack, of course. The alternative is the grill. Which would you choose?

I've walked by that joint a couple of times. I may be a fat old bastard ( used to be a great fat old bastard but then I started losing the weight), but even at my best or worst I would never dare eat there.

In my world there's something called the dash. Simply put, it's the dash on your headstone between your birthdate and death date.

When you die, how will they describe your dash?
 
2013-02-12 12:46:46 AM
Laugh if you will, but when you get your heart attack, you won't be able to say, "at least I had that awesome burger."  You'll be all, "WTF I'm having a heart attack?  After decades of eating tree branches and prune juice?  That's not frickin' fair, I---NO CARRIER"

/Bonus points if you can actually say "NO CARRIER" as you die.

I went to the one in Arizona. The food was nothing great though the milkshake was pretty good. The girls were nice but nothing different from what you see at Hooters. Don't really understand how they stayed open.

Shock value and word of mouth. I felt compelled to try it when I heard about it on the internet or CBS or both, and like you said it was so-so. I think it fits in better in Las Vegas, rather than the mostly conservative family-types in Chandler, AZ.

Actually it's the opposite: a shock will only defibrillate the heart, hopefully bringing it to a normal rhythm, but will not start a heart once it is stopped. Compression has some chance of starting a heart back up.

Whenever I see those places that have like eight burgers stacked on top of each other with cheese and crap running all down the sides, I don't think "YUM" I think it looks like it's already been eaten and then thrown back up. They are disgusting. Give me practically anything else but those horrible burgers. Which I suppose is good for me since they apparently kill you.

My goal is to say "Either those curtains go or I do."
