I dunno. My mother-in-law is so fat, if she was wearing a pair of those the bathroom scale would still say she was overweight.

New addendum to Newton's laws. High speed photography finally proves that Looney-Tunes has been correct for 70 years. There is a split second before gravitational force takes effect on a living being (Elmer Fudd/Willie Coyote/Sylvester.....) so that it doesn't fall immediately once its support is suddenly removed.

This is not the only trick I have up my sleeve! - but I must keep the answer at arm's length - otherwise I won't have a leg to stand on..but I must admit I don't like being kept hanging around like this....I hope someone will soon take steps to get me down.

It was the corporate ladder. He climbed it only to find out he had it leaning against the wrong wall; left himself hanging.
