Filial affection

I was delighted to see the following message on that Facebook place just now.

The context is that a dear friend of mine has just been discharged from hospital after a week following a heart attack.

His son reported the event as follows:

"my fat dads out of rehab!"

Good news. I remember what it was like - I was there once myself. (Rehab, that is, not Facebook.)

HA! HA!

Just kidding. I don't actually get it, unless the joke is just that he's making fun of his dad's weight at an inappropriate time.

Anyhow, here's an article about a man with an amazing leg that I thought you might enjoy:

At least they both must have a sense of humour - presuming that his dad knows what he put on FB, that is...

beautiful wordplay..so melodic..
I should think that that sort of good news negates any impropriety taken with social convention.

Adam. The young man in question was comparing a cardiac ward for those people who do not take care of themselves to a rehab unit. Like most of these things, not funny if you have to explain it. Can't get your link to work either.
Christopher. You might enjoy facebook. Some of us senior and sensible people take part.
