I’m short and fat!

A man goes to a doctor for his yearly routine physical. The nurse starts with the basic health questions.

“How much do you weigh?” she asks.

“Oh, about 165 pounds,” he says.


The nurse puts him on the scale and his actual weight is 187.

The nurse then asks, “And how tall are you?”

“Oh, about six feet tall,” he says. The nurse checks and sees that he’s only five foot eight. She then takes his blood pressure and tells him it’s incredibly high.

“High!” the man exclaims. “Well, what do you expect? When I came in here today I was tall and lanky. Now I’m short and fat!”
