"The Saga Of Rodney Toady, Part 2"

Older people pointed at him as he walked by and whispered to each other, "Rodney is a sad young man because he's fat and ugly!" But they whispered loud enough so that Rodney could hear, and this made him even sadder. Rodney said, "I can hear what you are whispering, because I have extraordinary powers of hearing!" And the older people would tell him that his hearing was as poor as his face was grotesque, and that they had whispered as loud as they had on purpose.
