How to be Polite to Your Sister....Not

At a small gathering of relatives yesterday, Harry decided to be a typical little brother and insult his sister. He called her 'fatso'.

Please note - this did not phase his incredibly slim sister. She just looked at him like he was nuts.

But his great-aunt took notice. "You should never call a lady 'fat'" she corrected gently. "You should say 'pleasingly plump.'"

Harry grinned, turned to his sister and said. "I'm pleased that you're plump."

Really funny. Kids love playing with insults, don't they? What it is about this.
But it's something to remember.

I want to be there when he takes the advice and tells his wife one day she is pleasantly plump. I am sure that will get him far. Although, it wouldn't be the first time someone in the family made a stupid remark alongs those lines.

That is hilarious! Good thing his sister didn't take it seriously. But what a hoot!
