The Saga of The Very Short Man
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

Oops! I wish I could stretch myself to be just a bit taller. I wonder if it would work cos I don't have a ball to stretch instead? hahahah!! Was this the case of the picture came first? because it fits perfectly :) Clever and fun!
Ouch! lol. Looks like he just bought himself a trip to the doctor!
Lol. Poor bugger.
Oh no!!! Good one!!!💖💕
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.
Oooh nooooo! 😱🤣
