That Guy's Got Some Balls On Him

No, not really. That's his gut. The caption:

Manuel Uribe... who at 1,212 pounds is possibly the heaviest person in the world, hopes to travel to Italy for a life-saving operation to shed weight.

The article:

Manuel Uribe, bedridden for the past five years, cannot stand on his own and will need a special flight to take him from Monterrey, Mexico to Modena, where a surgical team has offered to perform an intestinal bypass free of charge.

"I can't walk. I'm can't leave my bed," the 40-year-old Uribe, who weighs the same as five baby elephants, said in a recent telephone interview.

"I'm trying to reduce my weight a bit right now so I can be in the right condition for the operation."

He hopes to shed at least 300 pounds before the operation through a special sort of calesthenics called "finger-wiggling."

Sad story-- the guy was normal until age 22 and then some strange defect in his metabolism caused him to balloon up. I kinda had that myself, but not quite to this extent.

As the guy cannot leave his bed or walk, I will leave it to you to imagine what his apartment must smell like. Probably similar to "five baby elephants" with massive bedpans, I'm thinking.

Thanks to Jack Straw.
