British Manbeast Sues NHS for not Surgically Removing the Burgers from His Hands


The culture of entitlement is an ugly thing (in more ways than one).

Paul Mason has stuffed himself full of food for years, eating ten times the calorie intake of a healthy person. While it sounds like NHS has been its typical slow, bureaucratic self in scheduling his surgery, there’s no excuse for his lawsuit blaming them for “letting [him] grow,” as if it’s anyone’s responsibility but his own to make the right choices.

Paul – once the world’s fattest man – vowed to use any compo to help other patients who need weight-loss ops.

The 50-year-old, of Ipswich, said he begged his local NHS trust for help at 30st.

But the medic he consulted in 1996 told him: “Ride your bike more.”

…At his heaviest Paul was eating 20,000 calories a day – ten times what a normal, healthy man should consume – and the cost of caring for him is thought to have hit :£1million in 15 years.

I’d weep for humanity if I weren’t so appalled by the sight of America’s future.
