1,345 pounds? That’s gotta be getting into Guiness Book territory. That’s just behind Jon Brower Minnoch, who at his heaviest, was 1,400 pounds.
I can see why the Saudi king intervened; he’s the only fellow that can afford this guy’s grocery bill!

How much would he have to eat to gain that much weight at his age?
Someone must have been shoveling it into his mouth hourly.

Who feeds him? I’d be more concerned with who has to deal with the, er, used food.

I’m surprised the guy can even breathe. Like the horse laying on its side so to speak.

That was exactly my first thought. He’d lose weight if people stopped BRINGING him food.
