The Saga of The Very Short Man

Oh dear...

By Paul StewartPublished 6 days ago β€’ 1 min read

There once was a man who was very small

Who wanted more than anything to be tall

So he tried to stretch his feet

But failed and suffered defeat

Instead of his feet, he stretched his left ball

  • He strained his testicle? I mean, I know elephantiasis causes an swelling of the infected area, but it's only because of a parasitic infection. I hope this man did not give himself nematodes in order to have his legs swell and grow big. He might of just severely destroyed his immune system. Lowkey though, You made the best of an image and made it funny.
