Charlie Said:

42. JillyB: 5'8 and 200 lbs gives you a BMI over 30, i.e. above the obesity limit. How is that not bad? Americans are so used to seeing fat people everywhere they don't know what is normal anymore.

I want to see photos! Are there no paps in Detroit? In that case, I suggest that all those who complain about being harrassed by paps move from LA to Detroit

I said:

Charlie have you ever been to Detroit? Actually a celeb could live very comfortably in one of the suburbs that rival LA's and live larger, cheaper and not get followed. Big ol Retha (Aretha Franklin) does. So does R&B singer Anita Baker in the Grosse Pointe Area. Oh, and 5'8" and 200lbs is actually considered "normal" in DTW. Take it from me, he wouldn't stand out. *ahem*

so he had pneumonia and a heart problem and everyone assumes he is "fat" and that caused everything. No-one knows and it's his business. In case you want to think like a human, ever think that in heart disease (such as congestive heart failure)The heart is not pumping the blood efficiently and that causes weight gain (fluid in the tissues, dummies) and also if the left side of the heart is damaged you can get pneumonia (because dummies) the left side of the heart receives blood from the lungs, therefore the lungs get congested because (duh) the heart is not working efficiently? Get a grip and get a life and quit borrowing everyone else's. Losers... Try being human as in having some humanity.

I'd really like to see a picture of all you ass clowns that are saying 200 lbs is ballooning. Considering most of you are sitting at a computer all day checking out TMZ I'm sure you aren't in model condition either. Eat another Snickers bar and shut the hell up.

People are way to obsessed with looks and weight, why don't you try seeing people for their personality and inner beauty for a change.

Eminem is very clever !!! This is a part of my fav song by him..


Now in the Bible it says
Thou shalt not watch two lesbians in bed,
Have homosexual sex
Unless of course you were given the consent to join in
Then of course, it's intercourse
And it's bi-sexual sex
Which isn't as bad, as long as you show some remorse for your actions
Either before, during or after performing the act of that which
Is normally referred to have such, more commonly known phrases
That are more used by today's kids
In a more derogatory way but
Who's to say, what's fair to say, and what not to say?
Let's ask Dr. Dre
Dr. Dre? (What up?)
I gotta question if I may? (Yeah)
Is it gay to play Putt-Putt golf with a friend (Yeah)
And watch his butt-butt when he tees off? (Yeah)
But, but! I ain't done yet
In football the quarterback yells out hutt-hutt
While he reaches in another grown man's ass
Grabs on his nuts but just what if
It was never meant it was just an accident
But he tripped, fell, slipped and his penis went in
His teeny tiny little round hiney but he didn't mean it
But his little weenie flinched just a little bit
And I don't mean to go in into any more details but
What if he pictured it as a females butt?
Is that gay? I just need to clear things up
Till then I'll just walk around with a manly strut because...


yeah, thought all of you would like it

NOW go back to WORK

Umm if he is anywhere from 5"9 up 200lbs is NOT fat, it may be a little stalkey but no where near fat. Most Foot ball players or well over 200 pounds, I mean WELL over it so...
