SMH … there are so many jokes that could be used for this one!

A nearly 300-pound guy from New York is suing White Castle for not keeping their promise to make seating booths big enough for fat people.

A 290-pound New York man is steaming mad at the White Castle fast-food chain, which he claims repeatedly broke promises to make the booths in his local eatery bigger, the New York Post reported Sunday.

Martin Kessman, 64, filed a lawsuit against the fast-food giant last week in Manhattan federal court, claiming that the uncomfortable booths violate the civil rights of fat people.

Kessman’s lawsuit came more than two years after he complained to White Castle about the size of the booths at the Nanuet, N.Y., eatery and reportedly received a pledge that renovations would be carried out to cater for larger customers.

“They sent me specs and everything, about how the booths were going to be enlarged and made comfortable for people with a little more weight. So two and a half years went by, and nothing was done,” he said, adding that he has no problem finding a place to take a load off at other fast-food places and fits easily into airline seats.

The Americans with Disabilities Act is “applicable — not only to me, but to pregnant women and to handicapped people,” according to Kessman, who is suing for bigger chairs and unspecified damages. “I just want to sit down like a normal person.”


Our advice for the hefty fella is: (1) Maybe you should lose weight so you can fit the chairs, and (2) you probably shouldn’t be eating from White Castle anyways. Aside from the obvious health concerns … wouldn’t those little bitty burgers make a fat person angry anyway?
