Storyline

Mr. Burns institutes a new calisthenics program at work. Most employees enjoy the morning workout, except Homer, who is too lazy. He finds out that if he goes in disability, he will be exempt from the exercises. He finds hyper-obesity among the list of disability, so he gorges himself on food to balloon up to 300 pounds.

Trivia

While Homer is in the clothes store, two mannequins wearing similar outfits and riding on bikes are shown. These are based on Billy and Benny McCrary, the world's heaviest twins who weighed over 700 pounds (318 kg) each. They received fame after appearing in The Guinness Book of World Records in a picture that depicts the twins riding their Honda motorcycles. They would appear again in the same season in The Simpsons: The Day the Violence Died (1996). See more »

Goofs

Homer is standing on the bathroom scales; when Maggie hands him a 'doughnut', the dial would display an immediate increase in his weight of one pound (before the 'towel rack') - he would not have to eat the doughnut to see the result. See more »

[no answer; Smithers motions to two goons, who break the door down; the bathroom is apparently empty, but Smithers looks carefully, and points to a stall]
Smithers: Hmm... that one.

So unbelievably funny.

Okay, a lot of things don't make me laugh and it takes something special to make me. I couldn't stop laughing at this episode, it's incredible. The humour is just amazing.
