Diamond Jim Brady
After watching my last video post, you may be asking, "Who is Diamond Jim Brady?".
My hero, that's who. Select quotes from his wikipedia page.
- Brady's enormous appetite and resultant girth were as legendary as his wealth. It was not unusual for Brady to eat enough food for ten people at a sitting.
- When his body was examined, doctors discovered that his stomach was eight times larger than that of an average person.
- The usual evening meal began with an appetizer of two or three dozen oysters, six crabs, and a few servings of green turtle soup, followed by a main course of two whole ducks, six or seven lobsters, a sirloin steak, two servings of terrapin and a host of vegetables. For dessert, the gourmand enjoyed pastries and a two pound box of candy.
