My brother topped 500 pounds before his death. It isn't a good life.

TONY: No, it isn't, from what I've read. Fred Bradna wrote that Mr. Bailey paid his fat lady 50 cents per pound per week. To determine her wage, he put her on a scale each payday, should she lose weight on the hot summer tour. Then, I read that in trying to relieve terrible skin irritations, these heavy performers applied handfuls of cornstarch between their ample folds.
