Was he saying 'I squash your head,' while he was doing it?

much love for Richard Kiel! his autobiography is a good read i highly reccomend. i think he lives in Bakersfield CA as my girls mom has seen him around out there(he's not hard to miss). unfortunately he seems to be dealing with the same debilitating problems most people of such an advanced size deal with. he gets around with a walker now.
here is an interview with the affable giant:

I know Richard Kiel does suffer from Acromegaly a disorder of the pituitary gland, Rondo Hatton, a B Movie actor known for his brutish facial features suffered from this,as does Carel Struycken known for playing Lurch in the Addams Family movies, Wrestler and actor André the Giant was also a sufferer.
