World's Heaviest Man Goes on a Trip, Thanks to Forklift and Flatbed Truck

Manuel Uribe, once the world's fattest man, left his home for the first time in five months today, thanks to a forklift and a flatbed truck:

Manuel Uribe traveled to the shore of a lake in northern Mexico without ever leaving his specially designed bed. A forklift hoisted the bed onto the truck, which then hauled him to the lake, where he snacked on fish and vegetables and joked with a local boat operator.

Looking at the boatman's small craft, Uribe joked, "Too bad I can't get on it — it would sink."

actually on their way to the lake there was an accident and they had to turn back cuz of the blood pressure and low sugar from the scare they got from the incident.

Like I said, Craig. You have your own opinion. I'm not trying to argue with you, but you keep coming back with insults.

Sorry to get you so riled up.

ted - You misinterpreted my original comment and told me I needed an enema. I know what I meant, but I can't be bothered to explain it to you. In closing, nobody wins an argument on the internet. So blow it out your ear.

Wow, Craig Miller. You sure have cheek. Or you just don`t read very carefully. I didn`t call the guy a freak, and the only judging I did here was of your own self-righteous, judgmental comments.

Where do I claim to know everything? I have my opinion, and I gave it. You don't like it - that's your opinion.
