Chinmoy Exploits Obesity For PR Stunt

File under: Satscams and The Siddhi of PR

Strong-man fauxru Sri Chinmoy is up to his usual attention-seeking antics again. This time it was to lift Michael Hebranko, once known as the 1000-Pound Man. You may remember hearing about some guy who was so heavy in 1999 that they had to remove the side of his house to get him out. He's down from 1100 lbs. to a more manageable 450 now, which is what Chinmoy "lifted" with the help of "an elaborate contraption":
Chinmoy, seated in an elaborate contraption with Hebranko standing on a platform above his head, lifted the 458-pound man with his arms. The lift was almost imperceptible - Hebranko probably moved less than inch - but the move delighted the 300 or so Chinmoy followers watching the event...
It's a good thing Chinmoy packed the audience with sycophants, because it doesn't sound all that impressive to us.

We're sure Jack LaLanne could easily kick his ass.

You're right Jody, Jack Lalanne would surely kick this hypocritical Sri Chinmut bastard's ass! 10,000 paintings and none of them worth a tinker's damn, 100,000 poems writ in ten minutes and none of them worth a 10 second glance! A smile like someone's been hit on a head with a rock or shit on by invisible ducks! As my great grandaddy used to say, the man looks like a jackass eatin cactus! Talking young girls into bedding down with him while pretending to be their daddy! This guy should be rope drug and made to wear a toupe, a berret, or better yet a blonde wig, make up and a dress! Say what you will about She She Ravi Shankar but at least he keeps his hair long and wears a dress so you know what you're dealing with up front. I guess this Sri Chinmut is more of the leather bar type of fellow! But if you took all this bullshit out of him he'd be as light in the sadddle as She She!

All that aside, Jack Lalane is a great man. I used to watch his show with my grandmomma. All those greecian urns around while he did one armed push ups! Used to bring his wife out to show the folks and she looked like Barbara Bush to his GW senior. Jack Lalane!
