Hey! Our favorite Mexican dancing fat man, Manuel Uribe, is back in the news again!
I’ve written about his adventures before, but in case you forgot who he is, watch this:
umm… just a warning, I felt a little ill at several times during this video. So be ready to cover your eyes.
Was that fun, or what?
Don’t worry though. That was the old Manuel. Since he ballooned up to the Guinness World Record weight of 1,235 pounds, he has since dropped an amazing 550 pounds!
Some would say that is amazing. I would say… well… I would point out that it took a TEAM OF DOCTORS to “step in” and help him “tackle” his problem.
So, here he is, back in the news again. The basic point of the article is that in July, Manuel hopes to be recognized by Guinness as, quite literally, the World’s Biggest Loser. He also hopes to be able to walk again soon so he can marry his fiancé.
One thing that aided his explosive weight gain, was the fact that he has (or had?) huge tumors on his legs, which meant that he was unable to walk. He has been pretty much immobile for years now.
A lot of people would respond to that by saying,
OH! Of course he gained weight! He could hardly move!”
Yes, well, Manuel doesn’t disappoint me. He has always said his reason for being fat:
It is all because of the junk food.”
Thank you Manuel. Your fat rolls will never cease to mesmerize me.
The relationship between him and his fiancé fascinates me. Don’t worry, I’m not going to say that fat people don’t deserve love too. It’s just that, she bathes him daily, helps him go to the bathroom (well… not “go” to the bathroom – she helps him relieve himself while still on the bed), she feeds him, and helps him exercise. If you watched the video, you’d have seen that she said the first time that she saw him, she cried.
I might understand if she had met him before he became super morbidly obese, but she only met him a few years ago, since he has been bed ridden. I just couldn’t allow someone to wait on me hand and foot like that. I can’t imagine getting to the point where I literally have to rely on someone else for everything I need to survive. I ESPECIALLY can’t imagine that person being my future partner.
What do you think? Is it weird?
