This was inspired by a magazine article I read about a guy who, on his 30th birthday, got really drunk and late at night stripped down to his underwear and running shoes and just started running. And he ran like 30 miles. In the morning he called his wife, she came and picked him up, and after that he became a long-distance runner. The parts about Krazy Glue and pizza are apparently true. The other verse is based on a woman who tried to swim to Antarctica - the lard part is also true.
