Fattest Twins Guinness Book of World Records. McGuire Twins. Fatty McFat Fatso.

Check out these fat fucks!

Remember these guys? The fattest twins Bill and Benny McGuire. If you're around my age you remember seeing them in the Guinness Book of World Records in the seventies. Man I used to love me some freaks in that book. Dude with longest nails, cow with extra legs coming out it's back, Mark Spitz's mustache. All of it.

And damn it! After setting up this post I realized that I already wrote a post about these lard asses! Damn it! I'm almost running out of things to write about here!

But on the subject of identical twins, do they usually die within a few weeks of each other? I Googled this a few months ago and couldn't find out. And before someone says, "I know of a set of twins that died a week a part. Some say of a broken heart...." - I ain't buyin' it.

And wouldn't it suck to be the slightly less good looking twin? And you hear everyone pointing it out?

Are any of you guys twins?

In other Guinness Book freak news here's one of my posts that made me crack up when I wrote it - to read it click the word Sandy.

Dr Zibbs said...

Dr Zibbs said...

Just Keepin It Real, Folks! said...

I'm laughing so hard because my Dad uses the expression "fat fucks". Hey at least they are fat and happy. Just look at those smiles!!!

Dr Zibbs said...

Just keepin it --- i know. Those smiles say "pride."

Choleesa said...

Dr Zibbs said...

Scope said...

I'm the evil twin. I ate the good one "in utero". Tasted like veal.

Dr Zibbs said...

Yup theyre happy as clams. 700 pound clams.

Annika said...

I'm happy there's only one of me in this world. Think the feeling's mutual from the world's side.

Haven't read GBOR for years and years.

Dr Zibbs said...

Annika - Yeah I would hate to have a twin.

TC said...

Look at all the stupid records shown here: http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/extra-ordinary/

which of course are the best records from the whole Guinness repertoire!

TC said...

ALSO...which record from that page would you break if you had to choose?

Dr Zibbs said...

TC - I know. There are even more obscure ones like bouncing a ball while tapping your finger and singing. Who gives a crap!?

And I would go for the most bowls broken by one finger in one minute.

Candy's daily Dandy said...

Zibsy! Where the hell did you drag this up?? Yes, I remember these fat fucks!!,and all the other freaks from Guiness Book.

OMG, the crap you remember..I love it

Dawn @Lighten Up! said...

Oh, I totally remember the joy when I new GBOR appeared in the school library! Everyone scrambled to be the first to check it out. And I do remember those dudes!
Now, my son loves to pour through GB and Ripley's. Tradition, you know. :)

Dr Zibbs said...

Dawn - yeah Ripley's was another one I would get at the school book sale.

Cora said...

I know a set of identical twins who are 7 years old. One of them seems to be aging way faster than the other one though. She started losing her teeth about eight months before her sister, she got glasses a year before her sister, and she had her tonsils out a year before her sister too. Freaky, huh?

Dr Zibbs said...

Cora that is weird.

liz said...

I was totally obsessed with the 1988 GBoWR--read it cover to cover, so yep, I recognize those twins. And the tallest lady too! We just watched a documentary about people who try to or have gotten into the book--terrible title, "Breaking and Entering" (really?), but interesting nonetheless.

Dr Zibbs said...

Liz me too. I also loved ripleys.
