I don't know.... but at 6'7" and 280 pounds I hope that his mother still loves him.
Maybe he was smaller when he came out.

I was at the gas station with my truck and boat with a few friends filling up for the weekend. A guy pulled up in his truck with his wife with him. He rolls down the window and asked kind of snotty " Is that your parents boat?" So, I asked him if that was his wife's truck? He told me to F#$% OFF as his wife was laughing at him.
