    I have read the bios of the 900+ pound people and I have a question. How do they afford to feed themselves, if they are too large to walk or move or, for instance, have a job? I mean, eating five steaks and eggs and pancakes and tacos and chocolate cakes and whatnot every day isn’t cheap. Or do they have telemarketing jobs or some such? Or maybe just eat at buffets? Inquiring minds want to know.

    I love their list including Richard Simmons, the Weekly World News and Jerry Springer. It’s all so 1993.
