    What I find the most amusing part is the line at the end where the funeral director said he would assure the man's family that their loved one "wasn't harmed."

    Wasn't he also dead when they shoved him in the oven?

    Reminds me of the momma joke: "Your momma's so fat when she broke her leg, gravy poured out."

    Dude should NOT have fucked with Idaho's bike. He'll fuck you up even after you're dead.

    Dude would have swallowed my bike seat in the ass folds. 600-pound dude hasn't been on a bike in more than 400 pounds worth of Whoppers, KFC and trips to Golden Corrall.

    They should have parboiled him first. That helps cut down on the grease.

    Never was. The is one stinky, rotten body of water. Think of it as bathwater that's been sitting there for 1,500 years. Water (and sediment) flows in, but never flows out. It evaporates and leaves the dirt and crud behind.

    The story made it sound like a fire was a regular occurence when they cremated very fat people.
    I smell bacon ... no I smell a plot for the next season of Rescue Me.
    I can just see it now, Dennis Leary and the boys get called to a fire. They get there and it is a funeral home. The guy there explains that they were cremating a fat guy and Leary gives a knowing nod.
     
  12. In Brainerd, they have a better idea!
