“If you’ve gained weight and nobody wants to mention it, you are the elephant in the room”

The saying “the elephant in the room” is a metaphor for a big issue that people ignore (often on purpose). A joke on the saying was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on July 13, 2019:

“If you’ve gained weight and nobody wants to mention it, you are the elephant in the room.”
