Fat Kills

Ferry sinking blamed on tubby passengers. Ferry regulations based on 1940's weight averages from a slimmer time!

This reminds me of a time that I was on a plane out of Milwaukee and the pilot got on the intercom to request that a few of the cheese eaters on board get off, in exchange for a voucher (at Kopp's?-a custard and butter burger stand), because we had exceeded the weight requirements for the plane.
