Here Comes The Groom.

Manuel Uribe is proof that you can find love under any circumstances. Having entered the Guinness Book Of World Records in 2007 as the world’s fattest man, he has since dropped a whopping 230 Kgs and intends to keep dropping the weight until he gets to 120 Kgs. Earlier this week he wed his long time girlfriend, 38 year old Claudia Solis.


And here comes the bride.

You must be kidding me! What!

haha Nzembi. Welcome to Wanjikuville. Looks like something on Ripleys right? It's for real. Never underestimate the power of love.

Check out the link on the main page - the Claudia Solis link. There's a whole album of their photos there.

Very encouraging. Not too late for me???

Shiko-Msa said...

Maua lol. Ok if you had an eye on Manuel it's too late. He's taken already! hahaha.

On a serious note it's never too late to find love. Just ask one Mrs. Mbugua.

Shiko, this grooms picture actually looks nice. I saw him topless on TV aiii yawa!! Disaster!!

I wonder how they will consumate the marriage. If I was that girl I wouldn't agree to have children with this man, he may just pass those genes to my children.

Maybe she just married him for fame. By the way do those Guiness World Record holders get some money for having their names there? If they do, maybe it was the money.

Surely where there is a will there is away but ,Shiko, Isn’t it amazing to note that while Manuel Uribe took all the trouble shedding about a quarter of a ton from his top weight and got transported to the wedding on his specially-reinforced four-poster bed, just to get married, another groom Tatsuhiko Kawata set fire to the hotel where he was due to get married to avoid having to go through with the wedding ceremony and get hitched in front of 80 guests... Kawat said "I thought if I set a fire I wouldn't have to go through with the wedding," the Yomiuri quoted him as telling police. See link http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2008/10/27/2402459.htm
This world is just too funny

Yikes!! I can't imagine having such a dude in my bed. He has rolls of fat literally...

Shiko-Msa said...

Mcheku I saw the topless pictures on TV too. Check out the Claudia link on main page (Wanjiku) there're some more photos. The clothes at the wedding have done him quite some justice.

As for consummating their marriage they know best. You never know my dear. You never know. People can get creative if the need is there. By the way lady says they do have sex regularly.

Genetics aside I think this guy has eaten his way to that state. He’s currently on a diet but in the past he’s been known to eat an obscene amount of food. Another blogger is much more explicit in the words and pictures – check him out. http://simonstitchup.blogspot.com/2008/10/legendary-figures-of-stitch-upness.html

BP this Japanese man. Si he could just have said he does not want to get married surely!

Pink dude has a special reinforced bed just for himself. So it’s you in his bed hehehehe.

i remember watching a documentary about this guy, how he became like this and how his life saving operation went on succesfully...its touching, atleast he has someone to love him.

Shiko-Msa said...

Neema I hope this new found bliss will give him the push to get to his goal.

Maua said...

Shiko, I asked Mrs Mbugua and she said she didn't want kids, I do.

But the thought of me on Manuel's bed, no. I want him on mine,and since he can't fit, forget, I continue being one Miss Macharia. Bado natafuta.

Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Cliche, but true.

Shiko-Msa said...

Maua it's never too late. Hang in there.

9.32 the writer is quite explicit for sure.

True that Fixated. Very true.

Ai, yawa, ama kwa kweli love is blind! Lakini, ataweza kweli....?

joyunspeakable said...

the first quest i asked myself is whether the guy has got anything left for the girl....cos i hear too much mass consumes the necessary apparatus...so this thing unless she is content in him just floating and not sinking....ahah

Shiko-Msa said...

PKW lol. Apparently anaweza.

Joy the logistics are a bit difficult I'm sure. But with determination you never know. Necessity is the mother of invention. They must have come up with something towards that end.
