I don't know if I'd call this a stub, since it's likely all the info we're likely to get on Fat Bastard.

Fat Bastard Disambiguation Page?
Given the new article FAT bastard (Wine) it might perhaps be useful to create a Fat Bastard disambiguation page? Linking to both this article on Fat Bastard and the wine FAT bastard. Just a thought. Deskana 23:58, 23 December 2005 (UTC)
I deleted this line because it was hopelessly POV as presented: "His depiction as an overweight person while comedic is very stereotypical and has been found to be offensive to several overweight viewers of Austin Powers' films." Several? While I'm not going to argue the point that Fat Bastard might have been offensive (on many levels) to some people, I think a statement like that needs a citation or source. 23skidoo 16:04, 4 August 2006 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure that Mike Meyers didn't really do any acting for the DirecTV ads. Rather, they used the footage from the movie and then cut to Vern Troyer's new bits. That's definitely how they handled Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt in the DirecTV commercial featuring the movie Twister. 126.96.36.199 02:54, 24 September 2006 (UTC)
I have renamed Fat Bastard to Fat Bastard (character) to distinguish it from the wine FAT bastard. This is in line with User:Cmh/List_of_page_titles_with_multiple_capitalizations --Barfbagger 19:10, 25 March 2007 (UTC)
Fat Bastard looks almost identical to a classic Doctor Who character "Shockeye", an androgum from the episode "The Two Doctors".
See the image at androgums.org.
The androgums were cannibals, and this character was especially eccentric and salivated over eating young, meaty humans.
The resemblance is striking. Maybe there's a cultural reference I'm missing that made them both think a fat cannibal is best played by a Scot, but even the dress and such are the same. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Optimike (talk • contribs).
"1 metric ton"
"His extreme size (1 metric ton) endows Fat Bastard with [...]" He obvioulsy didn't weigh one metric ton, he looked more like 500 lbs (i.e. 1/4-1/5 of a metric ton). After getting skinny he for sure looked 180 lbs lighter than 500 lbs, i.e. he looked like 300 lbs. The "one metric ton" should thus not be taken literal, though the 180 lbs loss probably may. // Jens Persson (188.8.131.52 15:52, 27 October 2007 (UTC))
New England underboss?
Is there any reason why user 184.108.40.206 added the section to the first paragraph: He shares the same moniker as the alleged New England underboss for the Patriarca crime family, Carmen Nunzio, who is referred to by criminal associates as "Fat Bastard" for weighing over three hundred pounds. ? There's no backup for this claim, there's no article for Carmen Nunzio and no mention in the Patriarca family article. Even if it is really true, what's it doing in the first paragraph of an article about a fictional character? Can we delete this sentence? Thrapper (talk) 21:51, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
