Oh, the irony. Everyone always wants to lose weight. But in the case of not one but TWO gunshot victims, their extra weight may have just saved their lives!
An Los Angeles woman was shot in the chest, but doctors say her size-D breast implants may have saved her life by absorbing most of the impact.
And in a completely unrelated incident, a Florida woman was shot in the abdomen inside an Atlantic City bar over the weekend and is reporting that her love handles stopped a bullet from killing her. She said:
"I'd been hollering how I want to lose weight," she added. "I don't want to lose weight anymore. I want to be as big as I can if it's going to stop a bullet."
I now have new appreciation for my love handles. Who knew there was a silver lining to carrying extra weight?
