The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    This thread is absurd. I don't even know anyone in real life that I would consider a legend.

    Except for a guy by the name of Dustin Gerstner but that oversized man-child disappeared off the face of the planet almost a decade ago. It seems like larger than life personalities don't last long in the real world.

    Probably depends on where you live; how big your town is.
    There's 2 or 3 people that live in my town (of 25,000 people), that most people would know who they are, and yet they aren't famous like on tv or anything, they wouldn't even be known in any other town near us.

    I'm the premier leader of the POW (People's Army of Wendy's). My comrades and I formulated a renewed Rhodestown dream, to pursue fast food where we want, when we want and how we want. We were nuked by the moderators in our last Fat Guy War but soon we will re-arm, put a halt to the ceasefire and go on the offensive again.

    The POW lives.

    Usually the typical big guy comments and nick names but my mentor at thepolice department said " it's not fair your bigger than me, what'd you use to do just wrestle oak trees all day as a kid?" and I always thought that was funny.

    I'm a legend in my town.
    I have this super cool sign that the government made especially for me that keeps those annoying trick or treaters from coming to my house, or girl scouts from selling my cookies, and all kids in general from doing anything within a 100 yard radius of my house.
