“A Florida woman says that her love handles saved her life when she was shot recently while entering an Atlantic City bar. Samantha Lynn Frazier said she heard two pops when she walked into Herman’s Place, a local bar, early Saturday. She then felt pain and saw blood on her hand after she grabbed her left side. 35-Year-old Frazier, an innocent bystander, had just taken a bullet meant for a man standing next to her.”

Samantha Lynn Frazier, above, has been thinking about dropping a few pounds for a while, but that all changed early Saturday morning when she got shot. The Florida woman was on vacation in Atlantic City when she was shot in the gut outside a bar. At first she thought that something bit her, until she saw all the blood. Then she passed out. Doctors told her that her “love handles” — also known as “fat” — stopped the bullet before it did any serious damage. Talk about enabling. “I’d been hollering how I want to lose weight,” Frazier, 35, told the Press of Atlantic City. “I don’t want to lose weight anymore. I want to be as big as I can if it’s going to stop a bullet. I could have been dead.”
