Matt Alaeddine, also known as “Fat Matt” and “Powermann,” of Edmonton (of course he’s Canadian), claims he is the world’s fattest contortionist. Well, we suppose there has to be a world’s fattest everything. But is Alaeddine a real contortionist or just a slightly more-flexible-than-average fat guy in gold spandex flopping about? Whatever he is, he’s officially hilarious. Choice quotes: 1. “I have traveled to many countries, and done many things. Obesity — it’s working for me.” 2. “My weight fluctuates depending on the candy associated with the season. I mean, we’re just coming out of, at this point, the Christmas rush, the Halloween rush, so I’m sittin’ pretty at over 400.” 3. “I’m just a dirty carney, but people think I’m some kind of rockstar. It’s the best life.” Read the story at the Edmonton Journal and watch the video after the jump.
