Doctor's Scale

I hate accurate doctor's scales. They tell me that I am fatter than I thought; they tell me that I am shorter than I thought. Why does it stop there? How about not as funny? Not as debonair? OK, that one is going to far.
At least it isn't the Wii fit thing that literally shows you getting fatter. Thanks, Wii guy, that is what a mirror is for. Give me my cracked old scale that tells me I am in the general vicinity of what I should be. Besides, every time I am watching football, the commentator inevitably says that there is someone of my height and weight playing such and such position and I think "must be doing something right!"
