Lifting the dead

A company in Portland, OR has just introduced an ambulance designed to carry people who weigh between 350 and 1000 pounds.

In an interview on NPR’s “All Things Considered” yesterday, a company spokesman said demand for this sort of service has been steadily increasing, and that the ambulance goes on at least one call per day, including routine visits to the city’s only 700-pound man.

Any relationship between this entry and my previous entry regarding the Pizza Hut Ring of Gold Cheddar-Baked Stuffed Crust Pizza is entirely coincidental.
