Our local newspaper ran several stories about a new medical study that linked male obesity to a virus that saps your energy.
One evening, my brother came home exhausted from a long day at work.
“Did you read the paper?” he asked.
“Not yet”, I replied.
My brother passed the newspaer to me and showed me the article.
He said, “I’m not going in to work tomorrow. I’m calling in fat”.
