Blog: “£800 worth of biscuits saved my life…”

Catherine Sleep | 23 October 2003

Heart-warming story of the day… Fat dude buys massive amount of biscuits to get coupons for cheap Concorde flight. Suddenly fears he is too overweight to fly. Goes for it, has time of his life, but changes his ways. I’ll let you read the rest of the story for yourselves, but it’s nice to read about a battle with obesity that involves buying huge amounts of biscuits and still has a happy ending.

Like my new photo, by the way?
