I'm reminded of one time when I entered the kitchen and announced to the lovely and gracious Rogue that I needed to get to the fridge, as I was starving. She put her hands on her hips, looked me up and down, and said, "You don't look like you're starving to me."
However I felt about it, I have to admit she had the evidence on her side. Of course, if I was a Democratic governor, perhaps I could have convinced her that I'm not heavy for my height, I'm merely short for my weight. And underfunded as well.
