That's What Friends are For

This morning on the radio I heard a story about the World's Fattest Man, Manuel Uribe. After watching some sort of Dateline story about him not too long ago, I became somewhat fascinated by him. He's such a sweet and happy man who had found the love of his life and all he wanted to do was marry her (which he did, as you can see in the picture to the left). Manuel once weighed 1,235 pounds and lost over half his weight so he could leave his house and get married two weeks ago. He was carted to the ceremony on a flatbed truck but was unable to have his wedding night fun. So, his friends constructed a three-foot ramp, reinforced with concrete, allowing him to raise the lower half of his body. This enabled his new bride to have greater access to his private parts. Wow, those are some friends! I'm not sure I'd want my friends to have to build me a ramp so that I could enjoy the horizontal bone dance, but wow. He must have some great friends! :)
