Heavy weight champions

Now we know why they keep throwing their weight around wherever they go. The number of extremely obese Americans has reached 4 million, up from one million in 1986, a study has found. That means one in 50 Americans is at least 100 pounds overweight. Result? Sales of extra-wide hearses are on the rise in the country. Tun king, an undertaker in Goshen, Ohio, revealed to the New York Times the tactful sales pitch: “ We say,’ Mom is not going to look comfortable in that casket.’ The family knows we mean,’ Mom wont fit’.”

And in other tragicomic news (with all due respect), a 29 year old man in Garfield, new jersey, died after he got stuck trying to reenter his locked apartment through a bathroom window. He weighed 375 pounds.
