Michel Lotito – The Man Who Ate An Airplane And Everything Else

Michel Lotito (aka Monsieur Mangetout) which means “Mr Eat Everything” belongs to Grenoble, France. He ate everything from dirt to bikes to even an airplane in his lifetime.

When he was a school boy he used to amuse people by allowing them to brutalize him by chums. Everyone involved used to laugh a lot.

In his youth he suffered from a mental disorder PICA in which he ate all non – food items from dirt to metals. Later the French “entertainer” found that it was because of very thick lining in his stomach and then he gave his disorder a turn as his career.

He broke the metal pieces in small pieces and used mineral oil for lubrication and huge quantity of water for gulping in his throat and to pass them through his intestine.
