Okay, I may be fat, but thank the good lord above that I do not have cankles.
"Cankles" by definition is a combination of the words "calf" and "ankles." If you can't tell where your calf stops and your ankle starts, you may have cankles.
If you are one of the elite that have been plagued with cankles, then I am truly sorry. You were probably an evil person in your past life. Live better this time around and maybe next time you'll get lucky ;0)
There is still hope, there are a few things that you can do to rid your life of cankles:
1. Cut your feet off
2. Get a pet elephant - they have them too and you will good standing next to them (in most cases)
3. Wrap them in gauze and tell everyone you were in a freak accident
4. Wear spandex -- then everyone will be staring at you, but not because of your cankles
5. Get tattoos on them --everything looks better painted
6. Wear boots --even to the beach
7. Bring slouch socks back in style
8. Tell everyone that it's an allergic reaction
9. Walk on your hands
10. Buy anklets (well necklaces) --then when people stare you can ask them if they like your ummm...anklet.
See, so don't get all depressed about it. There are lots of things you can do. I guess there are worse things in life...you could have a goiter.
