How about a more relatable situation that Im sure you've experienced.
You're a huge fatass blob of a man, easily 350lbs. You wheeze and gasp for air just even thinking about having to stand up. You have trouble finding clothes that fit your rotund shape. You are disgusted with yourself every time you try on a shirt and its too tight.
But one day a fat friend lends you some clothes, and upon fitting them to your hamhocks you find they are in fact too large for you. A wave of relief washes over you as you think to yourself "Of course it doesnt fit.....nuthin' ever does. OH! It really DONT fit! There are people even fatter than me! Wild! At least Im not THAT fat."
