Suzie had many suitors, among them a very fat man. Although he knew he didn’t stand high in her esteem, he took the opportunity one evening when they were together sitting on the sofa to drop to his knees and plead for her hand in marriage. He asked her to look beyond his physical appearance and try to perceive what he felt in his heart. When she made it quite clear that she would on no account accept a fat man, he hung his head abjectly, and then extended his hand and said, “Well, at least help me to get up.”

And healthy in color
And as sought after
As the contents of this glass.
