Stating the obvious, this was a joke sent to me by a friend.  Since I know her 
height and weight (which is neither of the below) I thought it was funny.  But 
since my height and weight (neither of the below as well) may not have been 
evident from the picture, I wonder if I managed to mangle a good joke.  Sorry 
about that if I did.

Not a joke, two bird families built nests and hatched a bunch of chicks in the 
eves of two different sides of my house.  Kind of an awww moment, except what a 
mess they made.  I'm afraid that if I clean out their nests and fill the spaces 
with steel wool (I'm told that's the thing to use), they'll go to an less 
accessible eve.  I'm debating leaving the nests.  I don't even like birds.  All 
the trees around here, and they choose the house.  I once had a cat who loved 
to be outside during the day in nice weather but she would never ever spend the 
night outside.  Given half a chance, nature prefers civilization too.  Makes me 
wonder why people like to camp.

I went to the doctor for my yearly physical. The nurse starts with certain

How much do you weigh?" she asks. "115," I say.

The nurse puts me on the scale. It turns out my weight is 140.

The nurse asks, "Your height?" "5 foot 8," I say.

The nurse checks and sees that I only measure 5'5".

She then takes my blood pressure and tells me it is very high.

"Of course it's high!" I scream, "When I came in here I was tall and
slender! Now I'm short and fat!"

The doctor put me on prozac.
