What Every Half-Ton Man Wants for Christmas

Because I’m 6-foot-10, I receive a lot of catalogs and promotions for big-and-tall merchandise. Some can be a little more unsettling than others.

For instance, I just received an e-mail blast from Living XL, promoting this new 1,000-pound-capacity portable chair, just in time for the holidays.

Anyone who needs a chair that supports a half ton probably shouldn’t be eating the milk and cookies in the photo.

Note to self: It’s time to start my pre-holiday diet.
