On what could be a historic week here in A-merry-ca, and on a day when his O ness is stomping in middle A-merry-ca for support, I know that I should be blogging about health insurance reform; but I can't. (BTW, at this point why can't we just scrap the whole damn thing and allow every uninsured A-merry-can under 65 a chance to buy into Medicare? They could compete with priv.... Ahh never mind, it makes too much damn sense.) So where was I? Oh yeah, sorry, I can't blog about his O ness and health care tonight. Tonight I have a bigger fish.... ahhm... person to fry.
So let's talk about 42 year old Donna Simpson, shall we? Donna weighs 602 pounds, and she is trying to eat her way into the record as the world's fattest woman. That would require Donna to tip the scales at a whopping 1,000 pounds. To do that, Donna will have to pack in 12,000 calories per day which will cost her about $750 per week in grocery money...I swear you folks over in Jersey. *shaking head*
Anywhooo, some are speculating that this could be a form of "suicide by eating", but I doubt it. Donna seems happy. She has a boyfriend who loves her very much, and she even has a website up where some of you sick people can pay to watch her eat. And.......-oh lawd, I hate to even go here-but I am looking at Donna's pics from this article, and I am guessing Donna's significant other is one of my cousins.....oh yes, I just confirmed it.......ahhm...ahhm....ahhm...ok, for the first in a very long time I think I am speechless. Sorry folks, I just saw a pic of Donna and Phillippe and....
Anywhoo, I believe in individual freedoms, so Donna go ahead and knock yourself out. Still, I am looking at the beautiful little girl in those pics -who I think is your daughter- and checking out to leave her without a mom would not be cool. I know you say that you are healthy, but a thousand pounds is a thousand pounds. Come on girlfriend, give up the record, I don't think it's worth it.
O man, here is hoping that you have incentives for healthy life styles in your bill.
