No matter what angle you hold your head in pictures, you still have a double chin.

You’re metabolism has slowed down to the point that you only have to eat two to three times a year to maintain your overweight status.

While you used to receive junk mail that offered you a chance to win the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes, you now receive junk mail that offers you a chance to win a free cremation.

The clerk at the electronics store points out that what you just purchased is the most popular item among their elderly clientele, so he’s sure you’ll be happy with it.
