lost six inches

I have A LOT of “friends” on Facebook. It does not deceive me about my real-world popularity, but I do get exposed to an interesting mix of information there.

I just ran across a photo of a tape measure that someone posted under the heading:
I lost 6 inches around my waist.

Well heck, I want to lose six inches around my waist…
But I’m not so keen on the steps that would require.

Ah, DUCT TAPE to the rescue.

Is there anything it cannot fix?

The enhanced tape measure indicates a waistline six inches less than yesterday.

The really awesome thing is that my pants still fit exactly as they did before.
No wardrobe refit required.
No dieting.
No hard exercise.

What’s to not like about this?
