You can't make **** like this up.
Nice. Seems like something straight from The Biggest Loser.
Haha you really couldn't make that up..
Once I was eating at a tex-mex restaurant and the booth collapsed..
I was visiting an office when the chair collapsed under the huge weight of the extremely disliked office manager. It wasn't graceful with her feet up into the air and some of the workers there actually had to leave because they started to laugh uncontrollably and didn't want her to see and fire them.
Agreed. I'm glad no one was hurt.
Yeah, but Sweden?
I can't possibly be the only one who finds this a bit redundant.
^^^I still can't stop laughing at that part of the article.
"The group is looking for an alternate location for future meetings, Weight Watchers consultant Therese Levin told the Swedish paper."
may i suggest the ground floor?
Odd. I've been to Sweden a few times. The buildings there are *extremely* well constructed. And there are very few fat swedish people. An extremely fat Swedish person is about the same size as a normal USA person. (and yes, I've been to USA a few times and have many friends of all sizes there )
The floor should have held them up easily.
The smell of sewage leads me to think there was a leak in an underground pipe, which scoured out the earth, leading to a loss of support for the floor foundations.
So yes, this needs investigation. Sweden's very stringent about building and plumbing defects. You haven't seen real plumbing till you've been to Sweden. It looks like an artform there.
I expect now I'll get some swedish guy here saying their house's rubbish and is falling down and the toilet leaks everywhere.
This must be their bar
this is guaranteed LOL
Perhaps, but at a Weight Watchers, I'm sure the percentage is closer to 100%.
Funny and disgusting at the same time.
That article reminded me of this:
When my wife was pregnant a few years ago, we took a tour of a hospital with a bunch of other couples (also pregnant). Part of the tour involved us all getting on a freight elevator... luckily when the elevator dropped (broken cable?) we were only one floor up. Nobody was injured, but it took a little while for them to pry the doors open so we could climb out.
The nice lady giving the tour got chewed out for having us use the freight elevator - but I don't think she did anything wrong, it wasn't that many people and should have been able to handle the weight. (less crowded than the giant elevators at IKEA can get)
Conan: "Police described the scene as 'hilarious'."
This should be a new weight watchers tactic. "welcome all. we have a new routine set up. You will all come stand on the floor and if it reaches X amount of weight it will collapse dropping you into a pool of vegtables. We will do this each week until you have lost enough weight to remain level"
In related news, a group of people attending an anorexia support group picnic were safely rescued from a tree after staging a kite flying contest.
Best post of the day!
ROTF =) That's great! Thanks
I'm not sure what's better Mr. Spock, the actual story or you absolutely ignoring the obvious humor in it.
Humour? Nope, never heard of it.
Yeah, but imagine the trouble they'd be in, PR-wise, if straight out of the box they just said "the floor collapsed because the people were fat."
It is funny though
