A gag like that might’ve even made Peter Lupus laugh. Lupus’ Willy (his character, that is) was a monosyllabic strongman with the emotive range of a coat rack. Apparently, he’s still monosyllabic, but he’s also still really strong. Consider this: in 2007, he set a world weightlifting endurance record by lifting 77,560 pounds over the course of 24 minutes, 50 seconds. Oh, and when he did this, he was 75 years old!
Now you’re probably thinking, “Everything I’ve lifted in my entire LIFE wouldn’t even come close to weighing 76,280 pounds!” But you might be surprised. Take me, for example. I hold a record for my age group: I’ve hoisted a lifetime total of 76,293 pounds. Of cinnamon rolls.
