Cristian Capatanescu, the fattest man in Romania, died the other day. Since his family can’t afford a large sized reinforced coffin, doctors have agreed to give Capatanescu a post-mortem liposuction so he can fit in a regular sized coffin and the fat can be incinerated. His wife says they’ll have two funerals, one for the burial and one for the cremation. In semi-related news, sewer workers in London are digging out an estimated 1,000 tons of fat from under Leicester Square. They started by having to break through a four-foot wall of fat that blocked access to the sewer. The clean-up is expected to last for two weeks and the fat they’ll remove could fill nine double-decker buses. Or several hundred Romanian coffins.
