I Can’t Get Enough Of This 70-Pound Toddler

The good news: There’s an 18-month-old toddler in Turkey who weighs as much as a 12-year-old and he’s the cutest little fucker I’ve ever seen in my life.

Look at this kid. Look at him! The fat rolls. The massive thighs. The adult-sized diapers. The cheeks that swallow his face whole. He’s too much for me to handle right now. I just want to put on one of those back braces that powerlifters wear and carry him around on my hip all day.

The bad news: He has a life-threatening condition that causes him to gain weight rapidly.

From Daily Mail:

The desperate parents of an 18-month-old toddler who tips the scales at an astonishing five stone and piles on 4lbs every month are begging for help to pay for his life-saving treatment.

Yagiz Bekte, from Samsun, Turkey, is so large he can barely fit into his buggy and even finding nappies that fit him is a struggle.

Treatment is only available privately and costs £3,196 ($4,138) for just a three-day supply. It will cost the family £30,000-a-month ($38,849).

Yagiz’s father Sedat, 32, a car mechanic, said: ‘If Yagiz doesn’t use this medicine he will continue gaining weight, he will not be able to walk, run or even breathe.’

Yagiz was born with a leptin deficiency – the hormone that regulates weight and metabolism.

Sad story, I know. I speak for everyone when I say I’m Team Yagiz on this one.

I need this kid to pull through and maintain a weight low enough to keep him alive but fat enough to keep him fat and fun as fuck.
