As a former garden gnome I am well aware of the problems with being a midget. Sadly shorties still have to struggle against prejudice in the modern world! How can this be overcome?

Perhaps a stepladder?

Train you to be less easily hurt the prejudice you feel you encounter...transcend your ego gnomie.

Manure?

Dear beloved...the thread has nothing to do with "being hurt", it is about prejudice...please sharpen up.

David...at last, a topic you are an expert in!

Simon DHB,

'David...at last, a topic you are an expert in!'

Everyone is an expert in manure, especially since they all produce so much of it themselves - in more ways than one! My expertise comes from assisting my father some 50 years ago in moving 3 cubic yeads of the stuff, fresh and steaming, off the access path to his allotment into the compost heap. The stink wafted around the allotments for weeks, but the rhubarb that grew next to the compost area was a sight to behold the following year. It must have been trying to get away from the pong.

Either way, I recognise that manure, a lovely organic material, is quite clearly excellent for making things grow. Thus I suggest that you walk around all day in wellington boots filled with fresh manure. It should help overcome your dwarf-like stature and might even help your love life, if you can find an olefactorily challenged woman (or even man if you are so inclined).

Midgets were perfectly represented in the film "In Bruges".

Do you suffer 'heightism'? If so how does it go? They make trousers '34"short' you know.

Are you saying 'heightism' is the one remaining prejudice?

Dear Simon,

In severe cases, conquering Europe has proved to be a valuable form of therapy. It is however important not to overdose on the medication.

If it were not for midgets we would not have had that classic cinematic pairing of C3P0 an R2D2...And a few of your favourite films would not have been made. Glue a tray on a midgets head and you have a mobile coffee table...

David hi

Pouring manure onto your rhubarb, that's novel why not try custard like everyone else?

Beloved...the evidence is clear...small people (under five feet six) rarely succeed in business.

As a medium-sized person I don't know what to say really. What do you think is at the root of this prejudice?
