The second unofficial spokesman for the Heart Attack Grill in downtown Las Vegas has died from an apparent heart attack.

John Alleman suffered a heart attack last week as he waited at the bus stop in front of the restaurant, located inside the Neonopolis at Fremont Street and Las Vegas Boulevard.

Alleman was taken off life support shortly after 1 p.m. on Monday, said restaurant owner Jon Basso. He was 52.

"He lived a very full life,"

Alleman, who weighed about 180 pounds, is proof that heart attacks could happen to anyone, Basso said.

Excuse me if I get a second opinion from a real doctor, one who doesn't also talk his "world's most calorific burger".

According to restaurant owner "Doctor Jon" Basso, Alleman would visit the Heart Attack Grill on a daily basis, and often stood outside for hours trying to convince others to enter. "I told him if you keep eating like this, it's going to kill ya," Basso told the Las Vegas Sun. "He'd say, 'I just love your place, Jon.' He's the only person I know who was probably at the restaurant more than I."

Some people need the definition of “irony.”

Here it is.

Since there is not a single ironic tale in her song, she should check this story out.

That is the ultimate irony, she wrote a song entitled “isn’t it ironic?” and didn’t manage to come up with a single example - that scored a 10 also!

“Isn’t it ironic?”

No.

“Don’t you think?”

No, I don’t.

“A little too ironic”

Unfortunate doesn’t equal ironic!

The more I look at it, the more I want to attempt to eat one.

I've seen the day when I may have been able to eat one (Past tense). The older I get, the less I eat, I'm 67 now and buffets are a waste of money for me..

I'd go into a buffet and eat a couple platefuls and debate whether to go back for the third, knowing that if I ate the third heaping plateful, I might not be able to eat a whole plateful of desert.

Ugh... strong family history too. I have seen healthy looking folks who take care of themselves get taken out by their first heart attack too. Might as well enjoy life, mortality rate 100 percent. I think I would rather go out eating a steak than wasting away from other diseases. The first guy died of strep pneumo... lots of that going around, usually as a secondary event.

Yes, this one guy weighed 180 pounds, and yes, he died of a heart attack.

Try this for comparison: “Anyone can get AIDS.”

One of my favorite rules of thumb is that the term “irony” is misused, often because of simple laziness, more than 90% of the time. What they are really trying to describe is usually coincidence; “poetic justice” would be next.

I was in Vegas a few weeks ago and saw the place. They have a scale out front and if you weigh over 350 you eat free!

What they didn’t mention was that he was doing fine, until one of the Grill’s “slutty nurse waitresses” gave him a lap dance.

Regardless of cardiovascular ailments the older I get the less I like greasy foods like bacon, breakfast sausage, salami and the like however I will never be a total vegan subsisting on ‘rabbit food only’. Plus I’d like to stay away from hospitals and expensive medical costs. I’d like to die in my sleep when the Lord calls me and avoid all that mess but a massive, fatal MI isn’t too bad of a 2nd exit option.

I’m shooting for falling into a Vat of Beer and my Cigar (that didn’t get wet) with a letter from a Victoria’s Secret Model in my pocket telling me how much she enjoyed our time together. Just so when my EX has to look at the huge (smile on my face) when she identifies my body.

I find it ironic that in modern usage “literally” is usually used to mean the opposite - i.e. “figuratively”.

As in... “I was so amazed my head literally exploded!”.

On the Alanis scale of 1 to 10, I’d give it a 62 since nothing she mentions in the song is particularly ironic.

Usually the best steakhouses have the worst/smallest free bread and the worst steakhouses have the best free bread.
