NRA JOE?????????? BEER BELLY SAVES MAN'S LIFE (England) - A Birmingham, England, man who was attacked with a powersaw says his beer belly probably saved his life. Shaun Reaney, who weighs 308 pounds, is recovering in hospital after being slashed across the stomach. Reaney suffered an 18-inch wound when he was attacked by four men. His beer belly kept the blade of a circular saw from touching his internal organs. "It's good I had that layer to protect me," he told a local newspaper. His wife, Theresa, added, "The doctors told me if he had been lighter he would have died. When Shaun came around he reminded me that years of boozing had saved his life."
