Floor Collapses Underneath the Weight of Fatties

20 members of a weight watchers in Sweeden were attending a meeting at their local clinic when the unexpected occurred, the floor buckled under the weight of them. They thought it was an earthquake, but no, just a fatquake.

"The floor collapsed in one corner of the room and along the walls," one Weight Watchers participant told the Smålandsposten newspaper.
Soon, the fault lines spread around the room, and other sections of the floor gave way.
A freaking fatquake! If this happened here in the states you know there would've been all sorts of news coverage on this and how fat our nation has become as a whole. In reality, it probably was more of a structural problem than a weight problem, floors really shouldnt do that generally. But still, this event did allow me to create the term Fatquake and for that I am happy.
