People make fun of my ears, and I have been called Dumbo, Elf, and Mr. Spock. The worst insult is I look like Jar Jar Binks. Do you have a good comeback I can use?
It can be difficult when someone makes fun of your ears, nose, or whatever body part. The thing is all of us have something that isn’t perfect about us.
If you are mortified by your ears, believe it or not, there are solutions. Larger ears can actually be reduced with ear sculpting surgery. The doctor reshapes your ear by removing unnecessary skin and unwanted cartilage.
I used to work with an Irish flight attendant who hated how her ears stuck out. She had been teased mercilessly in her younger years and decided she had had enough.
Maria had surgery to have her ears pinned back. I remember looking at her during recovery, and she looked like a mummy with bandages wrapped around her head. It was a small price to pay because the results were amazing. Something that had bothered her for years was resolved, and she had perfect ears afterward.
If people are making fun of you, here are a few comebacks you can use which will hopefully shut the person up for good.

Michael Phelps was bullied for his big ears
Legendary athlete, Michael Phelps, was bullied relentlessly for his big ears and teased because of his long arms and lisp. After becoming an Olympic champion winning 8 medals, all those kids who used to tease him wanted to be his friend. Even though it was challenging at the time, Phelps didn’t let the bullying hold him back and he went on to achieve great things.
