False arms for the short-sighted

Even if it's out of arms length, it's still legible!!!

By a miraculous medical breakthrough, a way to obviate short-sightedness.

A pair of false very short arms, attached to a harness on your shoulders, with a covering to conceal the real arms.

Then even things beyond arms length spring into focus, if they aren't too far away.

Throw away those glasses, you don't need them now!

At a fraction of the cost of laser eye surgery!!!

Finance available.

       ...also comes with optional GibbonArmz (tm) extra long arms for the long-sighted...   

       Genuine Customer Testimonial   

       "I used to have to hold maths books at arm's length to read, but thanks to the GibbonArmz (tm) I now only have to hold them half the distance. Great product! Thanks NMR Inc!!! Yours, Gottfreid Leibnitz"

       Oh, there's the NMR Inc Facebook IPO Game (tm) for that. it's like alchemy, it turns (your) money into..er...less money.

       This makes me uncomfortable, a family friend was born thalidomide and it reminds me of the harness he had to wear.

       I wouldn't want to mock those with a disability.   

       If that's the way it comes across, then I'll delete it.

       Come come, now, [not_] --- if every idea in the HB were removed because of the possibility it may offend someone's delicate sensibilities, half the ideas in the HB would be doomed (and all but a handful of comedians in the world would be rounded up and executed). The reason blind people don't skydive is because it scares the dog. Get over it.

       (snuffles into hankie) had something in me eye there..

       I don't want you to delete it and I'm not offended; it just reminded me is all.

       //I'm not offended;   

       Ok, I'll try harder :-)
