1788. Weight! Weight! Don't tell me.

OP193 brought me mirth
'Cause when speaking of fat, I've no dearth
Like Dave, I have grown
And I weigh 18 stone
Which is how they count poundage in Perth.

(The Scots prounounce it 'Pairth.'  Don't know about Aussies.)


  1. I'm glad you like it.

    For anyone else who's reading, 18 stone is equivalent to 252 lb. Don't feel bad, I'm still well clear of you there.

  2. "Clear" may be the wrong word, Dave -- especially if we were both trying to get thru a doorway!
