What's fat, funny, loves dope, and makes Howard Stern laugh?
We haven't seen Artie Lange in Miami since January last year, when he was promoting his book Too Fat to Fish at Book & Books in Coral Gables.
He was hilarious -- a cool, humble dude who signed everybody's books and took a million pictures, and we'd love to have him back in the 305.
Well, the 41-year-old was recently rushed to a New Jersey hospital for unreported reasons.
Lange has had numerous problems with drugs and alcohol, and like John Belushi, Chris Farley, and Jerry Garcia before him, he also loves to eat and smoke cigarettes.
Instead of throwing Lange under the bus for the stupid shit he does, we'd rather celebrate it.
Here are our top five pics of Artie Lange eating.
