Just A Little More For You.....

If you're having dinner, please don't read the following!

A 20 stone (around 127kg) woman who refused to leave her sofa for four months.

Lorraine Robins 'died of a heart attack brought on by her obesity and immobility' having spent a third of a year on the sofa - refusing to even get up to go to the toilet.

Over those four months, she grew 'talon-like' fingernails, facial hair and her flesh rotted. An inquest into her death was told that 'when paramedics arrived they could not separate the sofa cushions from Lorraine's flesh'. As the stench increased her family were forced to eat meals in other rooms.

Thank God, the World Cup is only 4 weeks long!
