The Tragic Story of Mr. and Mrs. J. Sprat

Corpulant



Jack was rawboned and hollow-cheeked; he was as thin as a rake
His pursy bride was not
She leaned toward the ‘well upholstered’, rounded, ‘broad in the beam’

They met at an “All You Can Eat Buffet”
Due to dietary restrictions – bolstered by mating preferences
Immediate attraction on both parts ensued

Love at first sight, as it were
The courtship – aggressive
The marriage came quick

A match made in heaven, until they got sick
Jack developed a rare hemorrhagic disease resulting from fat malabsorption
His corpulent wife was stricken with severe coronary heart disease

They were both taken too young
Both were taken too young
