Why does Governor Christie need help?
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.
Talk about your chitty jobs! “Will Mike Rowe please pick up the brown courtesy phone.”
I’m surprised the guy can even breathe. Like the horse laying on its side so to speak.
"...Saudi King sees future hockey goalie"
HAHA... I think he’s been going to that Muslim Restaurant....Allah You Can Eat!!
Will the Saudi King help out on the Wookie Wide Load?
He doesn’t look an ounce over 1,100 pounds! :)
That was exactly my first thought. He’d lose weight if people stopped BRINGING him food.
Poor fellow. He must feel terrible all of the time.
Yes, there’s a lot of dessert in Arabia.
1345 lbs? SSS and bring out the backhoe
