“You never hear skinny people saying, ‘I’m just small boned‘“

Fat people sometimes say, “I’m not fat! I’m big boned!” Do skinny people say the opposite? “I’m really not all that skinny. I’m just small-boned” was posted on the newsgroup alt.tv.bh90210 on October 15, 1997.

“How come you never hear someone say ‘I’m not skinny… I’m just small boned’?” was posted on Twitter on July 6, 2009. “You never hear skinny people saying, ‘I’m just small boned’” was posted on Twitter by Rex Huppke on February 6, 2010, and the expression quickly became popular.
