That is absolutely amazing - even if half of it true!

I once had the pleasure of seeing Andre the giant in an airport. I was a kid at the time. It must have been the late 80's. He was with 2 older folks (his parents?). He was simply humongous. I recall that we tried to say hello to him, but he was kind of ignoring us and everyone else as he was reading the screen with the flight times and looked in no mood to be bothered with fans. But man, you can't miss that guy in a crowd. Truly impressive!

And for those that haven't seen the Princess Bride - I highly recommend it. Andre's performance is magnificent. It's far better than any Billy Crystal / Georges Murosan "giant" movie.

I saw him once in a resturant
He ordered a dozen eggs for breakfast and the waitress laughed and said he couldnt eat that many
So he orderd the whole menue and ate it all
