"A wrestling match Wednesday between two of the world's largest preschoolers ended in a draw - and a party with ice cream and chocolate." That's priceless.

I could take him... On a more serious note, letting your kid get to that kind of condition is immoral (and that's an understatement). I can understand some glandular issues or what have you, but he would have to have some kind of super rare gene to get that big without just having food stuffed in his face. A 4 year old, weighing in at 123 lbs, and another at 112? Jeez...

I'd hit it.

I'd hope it doesn't sit on me (I'd run from it).

You know that child obesity crisis we keep reading about? Maybe we should look at that as a, ahem, growth opportunity. Turn that frown upside down, la di da di da ... (I'm only kidding, you sensitive people ...) But seriously, how would you market this in the US? Man, think about it, right up there with Jerry Springer, Monster Truck Rally and the WWF: The WGTKISFWF! (World Geez That Kid is Fat Wrestling Federation!) Lucha Libre Gordito! You could sell frickin' fat snacks and McDonalds 24-7 at events and advertise mad-crazy. (Of course, I make leetle joke, you sensitive people.)

At least neither of this kids lives in the US, so we ducked out of that little disaster. Still, these kids are huge and what I want to know is why the parents are not in jail for child abuse.

In one corner was Russia's Dzhambulat Khotokhov. At 123 pounds and 3 feet 11 inches, he is the world's largest 4-year-old, according to match organizers. Obviously the Jenny Jones Show hasn't made its way to Tblisi yet. 123 lbs is nothin'.

Reminds me of this kid who used to go on the Howard Stern Show. Ladies and Gentleman, I give you Little Hercules!

Awesome picture...too bad I can't find it by itself on yahoo photos or google images. (any help out there?) I'd love to email it to a friend with 3-year-old twin boys.

Is this post sponsored by the Russian regional office of the New and Improved KraftFoods Inc.?

Speaking of Kraft, I understand they are currently considering building a new superstore to supply the Middle Eastern market. The working name? Cheeses of Nazereth.
