Observe how cleverly Maugham
, while arranging the statues of the writers he has chosen to grace his special pantheon, will chop off a head here, a pair of legs there, a couple of feet, or arms, as suits his purpose so that finally, only a certain short, wizened man of letters, Maugham himself, is left standing erect; whole and complete, towering over them all.
Most dictators were short, fat, middle-aged and hairless. Besides Danny DeVito, there’s only me to play them.
When Justin Bieber
’s Calvin Klein underoos ads hit the internet on Tuesday, I think we can agree that our eyes were assaulted by two things: the face of a bratty toddler trying desperately to look “all growed up”, and Photoshop. So much Photoshop.
It was so cartoonish, I was convinced Justin was just standing behind one of those old timey muscleman cut-outs at the beach.
And it looks like everyone’s Photoshop suspicions might have been right... Said source also described Bieber as “basically a douche” who kept hitting on model Lara Stone until she made a crack about him being a “child”. The source goes on to say that during the shoot, Canada’s shame
kept mentioning that he wanted them to make him look “taller and buff”. Awww that’s cute. I think we can all remember being at that age where you stand on your tippy-toes every time your mom goes to measure your height against the wall because you want to look soooo big.
A larger (HA!) pic of Justin Bieber’s before shot is after the cut, so grab your magnifying glasses and let’s Inspector Clouseau this shit.
Short people are closer to the ground and closer to satan
What a jerk! I swear, that Napoleon must have some kind of complex or something.
You know what they say: tiny man, huge ego.
I just remembered... my father often tried to make himself taller. Whenever times were hard, my father would try to make himself taller. When he got downsized, when the debt collectors came calling, when the company went out of business, he tried to make himself taller. My mother also tried to make herself taller that one time...
Bond always mistrusted short men. They grew up from childhood with an inferiority complex. All their lives they would strive to be big - bigger than the others who had teased them as a child. Napoleon had been short, and Hitler. It was the short men that caused all the trouble in the world.
Why are so many great men short? David:
Are they, really? Stephen:
David...you hit the nail on the head.
I don't have a Napoleon complex, Napoleon

short, Cap'n. Captain Ginyu:
Oh, don't go all "Vegeta" on me.
