Fat Project

As Old Fezziwig mentioned a while back, the Fat Project is underway, courtesy of the site that brought you StinkyMeat and the guy that brought you StinkyFeet.

Here, the challenge is to gain 30 pounds in 30 days. Both genders are represented and will receive a grand for their efforts. The winner will get three grand. Whether the winner needs to gain 30 pounds first or the most weight in a month’s time, I’m not sure. Either way, it’s been entertaining to watch thusfar.

Who knows whether this is safe… but both contestants are well on their way: as of day 15, Eric had gained 17 pounds and Nicole had gained 16. Be sure to stop by and see the crew’s latest antics, from the weigh-in, to gorging, to vomiting on the radio. It’s all there and it makes me love the Internet that much more. -ram

I've been following this "project" since the beginning and have to say that I am amused by the whole thing. It might be slightly dangerous to gain this much weight in a month but so far it seems the participants have been gaining gradually instead of packing it all on in the first couple weeks. If you're gonna gain weight, incremental is the way to go.

Do I need to mention that these people sound like fatheads?

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
