News on our friend Manuel Uribe has been more sparse recently. Probably because he now weighs less than half a ton, making him considerably less interesting to the media. I’m still interested in his weight loss progress, although apparently he still hasn’t broken the 800 lb. mark.
Fortunately, Mr. Uribe decided to go out on a date recently (yes, he has a girlfriend), so the media was actually interested. It went about has well as could be expected for someone who couldn’t even get out of his house for 5 years:
When Manuel Uribe went out on a date, he made all the necessary arrangements: a forklift to carry him out of the house and a flatbed tow truck big enough to haul the formerly half-ton man and his bed to a party….
Uribe was halfway to a picnic near his Monterrey-area home on Sunday when one of the posts holding a sun-shielding tarp over his bed hit an overpass.
Uribe’s blood pressure dropped so much his doctors advised him not to go on and the celebration — being documented by about two dozen photographers and reporters from around the world — was canceled.

Hey, I couldn’t help but noticing, but this blob called Uribe has managed to find a girlfriend, and he can’t even leave his house. I couldn’t help but notice your romantic life has been considerably less active than his the past year or so.
Thank you for your insight. I’ve been a little busy recently.
Let me guess, you’re going to brag about your exploits and try to show off.
I was going to, but I don’t want to make you look too bad.
