    Welcome to RHODESTOWN

    We will not be drinking Kool-aid. Rather, Liquid D-Bol in Gatorade, EVERYDAY!

    I feel it's time to elevate my god-like status to that of cult leader. My followers are growing in numbers. This is a message for those who choose to listen, and a warning for those that do not. And, I am the one to bring this message. A message of hope.

    Here are some of the basic requirements of membership in the cult:

    1. You MUST be at least 275lbs, regardless of height

    2. amendment to #2 - if you are not 275, you must REALLY want to be and you MUST be trying REALLY hard to get there

    3. You must be happy when someone refers to you as "fat"

    4. Progress Reports (stretch marks, to the non-cult member) are absolutely necessary

    5. Sweating ALL the time, regardless of temperature is required and graded

    6. You must have trouble wiping your ass and are willing to deal with it if you cannot finish the job properly

    7. You DON'T have to take off your shirt to looked jacked. If there is any question, you're out

    8. Visible abs are severly frowned upon

    9. amendment to #8 - the top 2 can be out, but no more!

    10. You must believe and put into practice that McDonald's is the perfect pre-workout food

    11. You count PR's and 45lb plates, ONLY!

    12. You must be willing to have a "fat-off" (like a flex-off) to see who has more bodyfat

    13. You can ONLY measure your:
    - neck
    - belly at bellybutton
    - and hips
    Noone cares about how big your biceps are.

    14. Addition to #13 - your neck must be bigger than your head. The nickname, "Stack of Dimes" is not cool

    15. You must use 45lb and 25lb plates only. "Dimes, nickels, and chips are for chicks." -Dave Tate

    16. If you ask, "How much do the chains weigh?" or, "How much tension does that band give?" you will be beaten, badly.

    17. Under Armour or any form-fitting shirts are banned

    18. If you are wearing a sleeveless shirt and hear, "You have a string hanging from your shirt." Put on a shirt with sleeves. The next part of that question is, "Oh, sorry. Those are your arms."

    19. No one follows Prilipin's chart or calculates percentages - SMASH F@CKING WEIGHTS!

    20. If you miss a weight in training, you will hear, "2 MORE REPS!" as the bar is being pulled off you

    21. You must not put anything in your mouth that doesn't have calories in it

    22. Amendment to #21 - your girlfriend/boyfriend is ok

    23. You WILL be sodomized by all members of the cult upon acceptance. We will be wearing condoms and using Capsacin as lube. We do not provide mouthpieces so bring your own

    24. If you are gay, that's totally cool. But, you must divulge this information so that when we are insulting each other and saying, "you're so gay, dude." we can make sure to say, "you're so hetero, dude." to you. If we are insulting, we want to make sure everyone's feelings are hurt.

    25. If you have veins that are visible, other than in your penis, the Council of Fatties will have to determine if you still can be considered for acceptance

    26. While training for a contest, you can ONLY gain weight. We in RHODESTOWN do not cut weight

    27. There is no cutting/bulking season. It's a perpetual bulk. And we don't call it a bulk. It will be refered to as "getting jacked" or "getting fat"

    28. Amendment to #27 - if health concerns arise, they must be brought to the attention of the Council of Fatties. If the Council cannot come to a decision, the final call will be made by Jabba the Hutt. His decision is final!

    29. If you can see your cheek bones, collar bones, jaw bone, you need to start eating McDonald's for every meal until the problem is solved

    30. It is looked upon with great reverance if your cholesterol is higher than your bodyweight.

    31. You must retain water at all times

    32. It is preferred that your blood pressure is high by medical standards. You must not care. Noone needs to live forever. We are here to SFW!

    33. No food is to be left on your plate. If you throw up in your mouth, swallow it back down, and continue eating, you will excel here in RHODESTOWN.

    34. Amendments to #30 and #32 - you may take the appropriate medications to control the problems. However, NO CHANGE IN DIET WILL BE ALLOWED! NO WEIGHT LOSS WILL BE ALLOWED, unless deemed acceptable by Jabba Himself.

    35. You must find Tranny's hot

    36. No more than 3 days per week or 12 days per month of cardio.

    37. Amendment to #36 - sex doesn't count as cardio, but, you MUST be on the bottom. If you change positions, please videotape it so we can learn how it's done. Then, go to the refrigerator and start eating. There is NO REASON TO NOT BE ON THE BOTTOM! If you can/want to change positions, you're not big enough.

    38. Absolutely NO Red Sox or Patriots fans. You people are so retahded and I can't stand the accent or ignorance. Get in youah cah and get the F@CK OUT!

    39. We in RHODESTOWN are Dallas Cowboys fans. We do not recognize other sports

    40. Sleep Apnea is preferred. However, we do recommend that you get a CPAP.

    41. If you are hungry, EAT. If you are not hungry, EAT. It's that simple

    42. Flip flops are to be worn year-round regardless of climate. If you can/want to put on and tie shoes, you must refer back to #41 and #1

    43. Fat, bloated , and strong is the ONLY way to go thru life

    44. Glenn Ross, Vasily Alexyev, Zadrunas Savikas, William "The Refrigerator" Perry, Nate "The Kitchen" Newton, Johnny Perry, OD Wilson, and Fat Bastard from Austin Powers are to be refered to as "beautiful". Others that fit the mold are to be refered to in a like manner.

    45. You must put butter on everything you eat. Crisco is better.

    46. There are no medical or dental benefits, but you will receive a free haircut

    If you have concerns or questions, you're probably not going to be accepted. Do not try to deceive us here in RHODESTOWN. We will know if there are non-believers in our midst. You will be punished!

    -your leader, Matt Rhodes

    Disclaimer: I have the final word on acceptance into RHODESTOWN. If you are not accepted, you will be killed and eaten. Nothing will deter us from our mission to rid the world of Metrosexuals, Health Clubs, counting calories, maintenance diets, lifting to look good/get chicks, and prejudice towards others.

    Although I fit many of the descriptions. I've been having some sinful thoughts of being seeing the top two abs, and I'm only 238! Pray for me
    Remember, to get big, you have to get strong. The two are interconnected. Lift heavy, work hard, and size will come. Like night follows day. It works. Arnold

    Obviously I'm not eligible for membership to this all mighty cult...but quick question about point 5:

    As I increasingly gain weight my core body temperature seems to permanently be on overdrive, always hot, always slightly sweaty! Compared to a regular persons body temp anyway!

    Im never cold, always roasting...I take it this is the norm in RHODESTOWN?

    Sorry Bri - we will be eating you, now. Probably as an appetizer, but nevertheless. No blasphemers will be tolerated. All hail America's Team.

    Eagles look real good this year

    Hahaha, I'm not gonna lie, they do suck this year, but I'll stick by them through their ups and downs. Dallas still sucks, they always have, and they always will.

    Sorry bro, I would never join a Dallas fans cult anyway.

    You have some nice lifts though.

    Giants fan? Are you in NY or NJ?

    ALL of the rules don't have to be followed to the letter. There is some leeway given, with the exception of Patriots and Red Sox fans.

    I'm in NH... but I grew up in upstate NY!!
    Giants and Bills were my choices.. the Jets were too Metro for us farmers...

    Unfortunately now.. I'm in the middle of all that Patriot and Red Sox sickness... I too hate them, but none of the fathers in neighborhood dare say a negative thing when I wear my Giants gear to the school bus stop... b/c they would otherwise know I would most likely eat them for my 3rd breakfast... lol

    Although Rhodes I was up @ 280 a couple years ago... I can only dream about still coming to Rhodestown now.. dang doc worried my wife, mother died young... so I'm on my way down to 220... so I've have to be one of those poor beggars on the outside of the castle gates looking for food scaps.. so if there are any extra bacon slices off that baconator, throw them out this way please.
