Honestly, height shaming should be a thing. Because of a slight advancement in height, a lot of people want to say something to short people about their height. And to be honest, short people don’t want to hear it anymore.

1. “Hi malt bottle.”

You referred to your fellow human as a bottle and you think it’s funny? Seriously?

2. “Down to earth.”

3. “Pocket-size.”

Cute, but still not funny.

5. “You better be eating beans.”
