I looked at the photo and thought “wow, that’s freaky” then groaned at my own pun.

The hight of the pun is irrelevant, it’s fully groan.

Would be helpful to have their heights in units people actually understand at least somewhere in the text!

ETA: for the rest of us, I’ve looked it up. He’s 2.50m and she’s 64cm!


All the best to both of these people having to cope with their ailments.




Ok. I yield. I translated this, I read about German theatre theory, and I’m still not grokking this. I get that “tragedy should imitate better people and comedy should imitate worse people”. I tried to word my response so as not to make fun of the people in the article, rather just referring to the concept of “height” .

Can I have the reference further explained to me?

Some people say it ruins a joke to explain it, but I quite like it.
