812-Pounder Keith Martin Is Now The World's Fattest Man
This may shock you but the world's fattest man is not from Milwaukee or Cleveland. The man now acknowledged as the heaviest on earth is London denizen Keith Martin, who weighs in at 60 stone or 812 pounds for those of you who don't understand Limey-talk. Here's how you get to be an 812-pound mountain of flesh, skin and bed sores: you have eight hot dogs for breakfast and two roasts for lunch. It doesn't say in the story what Keith normally has for supper. Elephant maybe?
To Keith's credit, he doesn't blame his astonishing girth on glands, his mother or body image issues brought on by the media's fixation on beauty. He blames himself. "It was my fault," Keith told reporters. "I hate what I have done to myself." Good Keith. The first step is acknowledging you have a problem. The second step is...actually I don't know what the second step is. The health care system in Britain won't pay for any weight-loss surgery for Keith because he's a bad risk. Maybe he could try crack? There should be lots more available with Whitney dead.
