700 Pound Woman: Makes the Best out of a Bad Economy by Eating A Lot

Posted on 13 July 2011 by GranTorinoGuy

A 700 pound woman in New Jersey, Donna Simpson, is attempting to claim the Guinness World Record’s title for the World’s Most Obese Woman by gaining an additional 300 pounds.

In today’s economy many of us would gladly be able to afford the vast amount of food that Simpson will need to accomplish her task. But she is not in it just to be the World Record holder, she is partly in this horrendous endeavor to make some extra cash on the side.

Donna Simpson, a mom already at 700 pounds, has a website, OfficialDonnaSimpson.com, that is geared toward memberships for people who want to admire over her being so overweight. So far Simpson has claimed that she has about 7,000 paying fans and makes about $100,000 annually from the site which helps pay her ‘overweight’ eating expenses of around $600 to $750 per week. At that rate, someone with not many obligations in life could basically live comfortably if that was their income instead of a grocery bill.

Could you imagine a grocery bill of around $700 a week?

I enjoy all-things technical and nerdy. One thing that I rather despise is wasting money especially when it comes my own money. With a $700 a week food bill, during today’s economy, you better have some type of decent income to cover that and your living expenses. Actually, Simpson has it all figured out, that is, if she does not meet her demise during the climb to 1,000 pounds. Unfortunately Simpson already suffers from high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes. As if the 700-plus pounds was not bad enough, Simpson is looking at death in review mirror and it is only a matter of time that it catches up to her.

If you wish to give to this ridiculous cause, Simpsons fund, you can visit her website and get a membership for three days at $7.95 or a one-month for $19.95. Sure, anyone can make money off of a website but is this the ‘drastic’ way to go about it? Do you think she would have made more with just setting up a simple porn site and lost the extra weight?
