Icon07 At 1,234 lb., Mexican man weighs into record books

A Mexican tipping the scales at 560 kilograms (1,234 pounds) will be listed as the world's fattest man by the Guinness Book of Records, while a loss of 200 kilos (440 pounds) may make him the man who lost the most weight.

When you take provocative scantily-dressed photos like that it only stronly encourages the paparazzi to try to get the money shot. I would recommend to this guy that he be very careful when he steps out of an SUV wearing no underwear.

And it's 1,2,3 what am I fighting for,
Quite frankly I don't give a damn,
Just give me eggs and ham.
....

Whoopee I'm gonna die.

I actually just watched a TLC show on this guy. He might be able to walk except he's got these huge growths on his legs that prevent it. They were taken off once and they grew back. You can see one in the photo.

I just watched that also. I was wondering how he is coming along. He has a nice outlook on life and a cute girlfriend!
