Huge Newborn Draws Spectators To Indonesian Hospital

“A baby made his way into the world this week in Indonesia at 19.2 pounds (8.7 kg) — about three times the weight of an average newborn.
Muhammad Akbar Risuddin, born Monday, is thought to be the heaviest baby born to date in Indonesia.
‘I was very surprised. I thought it was twins,’ said Binsar Sitanggang, the lead doctor in the cesarean-section delivery at Abdul Manan Hospital in North Sumatra.
The father is worried that he may be unable to afford enough milk for the humongous baby. It’s too bad that his babe was born in a backwards country, had that little freak been born in America he would have plenty of milk, and the parents would be drinking champagne. In our great country the little brat would be starring in a commercial for heavy-duty Pampers, and the parents would be busy spending the money
The boy has become a celebrity, rubes are flocking to the hospital to get a glimpse of the monster. It’s not like people in Indonesia have a lot of entertainment options.  
Every time that freak of nature soils his diapers, I bet the parents will argue over who should change his diapers.
The parents don’t have the option of starring in a reality show or writing a book about life with the little mutant, my advice to them is to loan him to a circus.
