He Used to Waddle

Ah, friendship. We read a heartwarming story about a man who donated a kidney to his best friend, after losing 50 pounds so he'd be in shape for the procedure.

Unfortunately, the AP reporter convering the story used a sound-alike word for "wattle," that jiggly flesh that hangs below the neck of people of a certain age and girth.
Dressed in activewear and running sneakers at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis the day before the transplant surgery, Moore was down to 200 pounds from 250, and said he conquered both the "turkey waddle under his neck" and his former "man boobs."

Still, it is amusing to think of a turkey waddling beneath someone's chin. That would have to tickle.
