That would be $2,000 a night in Houston

A hotel in Germany has started charging its guests by the pound for an overnight stay, according to a Local 6 News report.

The hotel owner in the town of Norden, Juergen Heckrodt, said he was continually getting overweight guests, so he decided to make them step on the scales to determine room costs.

The hotel requires guests to pay half a euro or 61 cents per 2.2 pounds, according to a Reuters report.

Horizontally challenged activists be warned, particularly in Houston, America's fattest city. The runners-up, in order:





*New Orleans

*New York

*Las Vegas

*San Antonio

Is anyone else surprised that only two Southern cities made this list?
