It's a comedy staple: hapless hero smiles at a woman of stature and asks "when's it due?" only to be hit by an umbrella as the woman indignantly rages that she's not pregnant.
Now, gossip journalism has sunk to a point where the gag has been reversed: Lisa Marie Presley has been forced to announce that, actually, she isn't fat, she's pregnant:
"I have had to show my cards and announce under the gun and under vicious personal attack that I am in fact pregnant," she said.
Presley said the press had been "irresponsible and disgusting".
There's the additional question of how dumb a readership has to be judged before it takes a writer to be required to point out that, say, the woman in the picture above has a greater weight than she did in a photo taken in the past.
