    You would think a fat store would want to accomodate the customers it is making fat.

    Would be a better story if his name were Harold or Kumar.

    Eat a half-dozen of those diarrhea bombs a day and you'll be down to 175 in no time, Kessman.

    Would love to see a verdict in his favor and the judge reduce the award to one top-of-the-line treadmill.

    The judge would be a hero.

    C'mon... fat people aren't people.

    Speaking from experience, a 290 lb person does NOT fit comfortably into an airline seat. You fit, but you're going to have to force the table under your tummy and accessing TV controls on the side of the armrest will be challenging.

    Fat people should not be discriminated against. That's a fact. But come on....

    I'm down to 285 from 321 (at the end of last football season). But most people don't think I weigh more than 240. You can be heavy but not necessarily that big.

    My goal is 225.

    I understand that. Nobody ever thought I weighed as much as I did. But suing a fast food place for not making the seats big enough is like suing a football team for having idiotic drunken fans.

    I think the suit is stupid, too. Was just sayin'.

    Fat people ought to align with gay people, who know all too well the benefits of special status lawsuits.
