Kings of Leon, bitch! It’s not cool enough that Aaron Paul went to a Kings of Leon concert in NYC last night. No, he had to make friends with Bill Murray and Rob Thomas. If we ever start cloning people, please start with Bill Murray. We could use more of him around. Also, Rob Thomas is the greatest third wheel of all time.
(Source) “An obese wheelchair-bound woman is suing a New York City EMT after he tweeted a photo of her with the caption ‘Wide Load’, it emerged today.
Teena Gamzon, 65, who suffers from diabetes and other ailments, says fire department EMT Thomas Dluhos secretly photographed her and then splashed it over the Internet.
He tweeted it from his now-defunct Twitter page with the caption: ‘#fatladytweets Look what my husband did to my wheels couch. That b*****d’.
The suit was filed in Brooklyn state Supreme Court this week and seeks unspecified damages for mental anguish, ridicule and emotional distress.
She told The New York Daily News: ‘I’m devastated. We’re made jokes of as it is.’
Dluhos, who allegedly posted a slew of racist comments on Twitter under the handle Bad Lieutenant has since been fired. The Twitter page has been taken down.
He hung up the phone when the Daily News asked about the lawsuit.”
Probably not the smartest idea. When I read the headline and saw the picture I thought it was kind of funny. Then I saw the oxygen tank strapped to the wheelchair. Now he’s kind of a dick. If this was a random person tweeting this picture then it’d probably be a little bit funnier. But, correct if I’m wrong, aren’t paramedics supposed to help people? Assist them when they can’t help themselves. I’m kind of glad he’s getting sued. I’m not saying taking the picture was wrong. I probably would have done the same thing. Hilarious caption. Tweeting it out as a paramedic? Not the smartest move in the world. Apparently he’s a racist too. Real winner.

“They were like charcoal,” she writes in her biography on her website, Fitness Unarmed “They were completely dead and had to be amputated at the shoulders.”
No one expected Thomas to live. But today, at 37, she has accomplished what was once regarded as the impossible: Thomas is a competitive body builder and model.
“I thank God I am alive,” said Thomas, who now lives in Phoenix with her two sons, aged 13 and 17. She uses her shoulders as arms, which her children call her “nubs.”
Barbie Thomas does not miss leg day at the gym, which I guess is pretty crucial when you don’t have arms. This is obviously an inspiring story but is this legal? I have to imagine there is nothing in the bodybuilding rulebook that states you must have arms, but come on. Every other competitor has to make sure their entire physique is perfect. Not Barbie Thomas. Abs and legs. That’s it. Contestant #3 doesn’t have toned biceps? Barbie Thomas doesn’t have any biceps. Either way, good for you Barbie. All is fair in love and armless bodybuilding.
P.S. The fact that a woman with no arms is in better shape than me really ruined my day.
As I was watching The Bridge last night, I realized one of it’s creepiest characters always wears dress shirts buttoned to the top. If this isn’t the sign of a psychopath then I don’t know what is. If you’re buttoning the top button of a dress shirt and you’re not wearing a tie you have or will eventually murder someone. I’ve always been someone who believes that their are levels of crazy. Dress shirts buttoned to the top is easily level 7. Add in the fact that it’s a classic fashion no-no and you have a recipe for disaster.
