Area Man Secretly Tired Of Exposing His Big Belly For Friends To Slap, Yet Knows No Other Way

GREENSBORO, NC—Though local man Joshua Bishop secretly yearns to stop exposing his ample belly for friends, family, and coworkers to playfully smack, the 28-year-old assistant project manager confessed Wednesday that he fears he has invested too much of his identity in the ritual to ever abandon it.
