I have always been thin (skinny, trim, underweight, call it what you will).

So why is it acceptable for people to comment, "Man, you are so skinny!!! You need to get some meat on your bones!" or "you need to eat more!", yet if I look at someone and say, "Man, you are so fat!!! You need to get some fat off you bones!" or "you need to eat less!" then I am being rude?

I would love to gain a few pounds, and I try, but why is it OK for people to comment without being accused of being insensitive? The old double standard. I am 5'8" and about 125lbs. I am only about 10% underweight from my ultimate weight according to my height.

Sexual attractiveness and envy...

That's why.

Stay thin and healthy my friend, you're better off.

Hey Scott, if both of us get in one of those transporter things like in the movie "The Fly" - according to my calculations, we should both emerge from the other pod perfectly proportioned for our height/weight! LOL!

Boo, hoo...

So you skinny and fat blankers think you got it bad?

How about some of these gems:


How's the weather up there?

Do you play basketball?

How tall are you?

Hi stretch.


You get the idea.

So let me see if I have this straight. You have people say you are too thin, which doesn't carry a stigma with it, isn't an actual insult but a back handed compliment, and is not a condition that causes physical pain and embarrassment and you think that it is the same as calling a fat person fat? Is you question based on boredom or is there really a disconnect? Might you be one of those people who say "Hey, I know I'm white but since rappers can use the word n***** then it is okay for me to call them n****** and they shouldn't get mad".

I think he's just saying he doesn't like people making offhand comments about his physical apperance any more than most people do. Skinny, fat, tall, short, long hair, bald. Is it proper to comment on someones physical apperance in a way that makes them feel uncomfortable?

Is it funny or acceptable to call a skinny person a stick man, or a twig, or say his arms look like buggy whips, and not funny to call a fat person a blimp?

And that's where you are wrong, and why you would get your butt handed to you.

You are using the N-word with the "er"

We (me and all my) homies use it as a form of greeting and endearing. And that's with the "ga" ending.

As in "what up my N-word?" See, GA NOT "er"...


No need to thank me.

You and your 'homies'? I think that might have been a typo, just off by a couple letters.

Don't worry about that word...


Just keep your "er" and 'ga' in order.

Sometimes I get depressed by all the women stopping me in the street and saying:

"By all things holy, you are the most sexually attractive man I have ever seen, and I would like to sleep with you."

I ask, "Have you read my blog? My doctoral dissertation? Have you spoken to my therapist? Do you know what really moves me, and do you want to fulfill my deepest longings as a man and a member of the human race?"

And typically they say, "Uh...you are the most sexually attractive man I have ever seen, and I would like to sleep with you."

And I go home to my wife, and cry with my head on her breast, and say, "THANK YOU for loving me for who I really am...."

It's a curse I must bear, I suppose.

Such is life.

I have to admit Jeff, those prostitutes do get on my nerves too after a while when I come stay. I can't take the compliments anymore so I usually give in, good thing about the german girls is they just want a sack of potatoes and a mach 3.

But I ALWAYS keep a sack of potatoes with me. The Mach 3, however, is something I just can't abide being begged for.

I scream WAX! at them as loud as I can.

Sometimes it frightens them.

Justin, I guess I must humbly say that you are right.

That's why I got to schmooze with Becky, instead of another magician, like you schmooze with.

(For those who don't understand the reference: one has to take a look at Justin's website, where he has pictures with himself and DOZENS of magicians. But not Becky Buller.)

And once again, me and Becky:
