    I guess having a large waistline can help for some things...

    French toast? Or some British delicacy we don't know about?

    The Euro-Whoppers taste much better for some reason.

    What is the morning special at the Heart Attack Diner, Alex?

    On a journalistic note, this is the dumbest story ever.

    If he had used the XL undies to parachute to safety from a fire-ravaged apartment, fine. But to use them to put out a small fire? Yawn.

    Does this mean fat people or those who are getting fatter can say, "I'm only eating so much to someday save our lives"?

    My mom is English and my dad is Welsh, and we knew about eating fried bread -- pork dripping sandwiches, actually.

    Take a chunk of bread, slather both sides with the bacon runoff -- suet, essentially -- and fry it.

    Tasty, but whenever you stopped chewing, you could actually hear your heart cry.

    These stories only come from England. Or California.
