Get Fat Now...It May Just Save Your Life!

This is one time that being a fat man, might not be a bad thing. A 400-lb. man shot several times in the parking lot of Tommy's Original Hamburger downtown, might have survived his wounds because he is overweight, according to a Los Angeles police sargeant who was probably eating a triple-decker with extra chili, tomatoes and pickles with grilled onions and a couple of sweet peppers on the side.

The shooting outside the original Tommy's Original Hamburger on Beverly Blvd. occurred and the victim, a man whose name was withheld, was struck "several times" in the stomach and once in the leg. He was taken to a hospital where he was reported to have stable vital signs and a slight case of indigestion with possible diarreah.

The man got into a dispute with several other men over the fact that maybe they had a couple of more pickles on their burger than he did. In this part of Los Angeles, the Tommy's burger sometimes come with a small handgun and a few bullet holes. During the altercation, one of the men pulled out a pistol and opened fire, Gamble said. The suspects then fled in a gray 4-door sedan.

The hamburger stand, which opened in 1946 and spawned a chain of restaurants, as well as dozens of imitators, has long been a late-night favorite. Police were using dogs with sensitive noses to follow the methane trail that must have been coming from the assailants vehicle.

I wonder if the hospital got confused between the bullet holes and the blobs of chili? hmmm.
