This week's story about a 500-pound retired NYPD cop trying to get more dough (the green money kind) inspired The Late Show with David Letterman's Thursday night top ten list.

Retired cop Paul Soto, who wears a 6-foot-long belt, has been receiving disability payments (equal to half his pay) as his narcolepsy, hypertension and morbid obesity prevented him from working his job. He boldly tried to prove that his disability was due to an "in the line of duty" incident, but a judge decided that Soto's fall from outside his doctor's office wasn't really an "in the line of duty" issue, as he was assigned to desk duty.

According to today's Post, Soto hasn't left his Lower East Side home since the story broke.
