WHY WE WOULD NEVER GET ON ANY MACHINE CALLED THE 'ABDUCTOR'

A "very large lady" at the New York Sports Club was "sling-shot" off equipment known as the "abductor" - and had to be hauled from the gym in a rescue basket by firefighters, authorities said.

Gym members were aghast as they watched the accident unfold.

Knowing my fellow New Yorkers I bet:

1. people laughed
2. most people were so self-involved they didn't even notice
3. no #3

Ooooooh... "It's you VERSUS the machine."

Who'd'a thunk it... a very large woman put too much weight on the machine. I would have thought those machines could handle that kind of weight.

I did love the headline at the top of the Post website:

GYM MACHINE HURLS LARGE WOMAN AT NEW YORK SPORTS CLUB

So what, she was walking down the street and the "Abductor" abducted her and hurled her at the club?

Calling Mr. Language Person, stat!

Gym members were aghast as they watched the accident unfold.

I'd have benn more aghast at a 400 pounder in loose fitting shorts......ewwwww

Why do I get the feeling we'll be seeing this scene replayed in "comedy" films for the next ten years?

Good for her for trying to work out anyway.

jeff- and i think aghast is not the noo yawk way of putting things... more like -- WTF just went flyin, heah, Huh?

So what does large woman mean in this situation? Because that will determine whether I laugh or not.

If it was Rosie O'Donnell, I'd me laughing my ass off.

And so would Baba Wawa...
