“I can only sleep on stacks of old magazines. I’ve got back issues”

There have been several magazine puns on the term “back issues.” “Did you hear about the woman who kept hurting herself lifting her boxes of old magazines? She had a lot of back issues” was posted on Twitter on July 26, 2009. “Tuesday #pun: I’d like to recycle my old magazines in the garage but the boxes are very heavy and I have a lot of back issues” was posted on Twitter on April 6, 2010.
 
“My friend can only sleep on stacks of old magazines. He’s got back issues” was posted on Twitter by Darren Walsh Puns‏ on April 6, 2016. “I can only sleep on piles of old magazines.  I have back issues” was posted on Twitter on August 6, 2016.
 
“If anyone needs copies of Osteopath Monthly, I have back issues” is a similar joke.
