  1. I don’t understand?

  2. lbs is short for ‘pounds’ an ancient form of measuring weight, that is only used in backward countries. It is trying to be funny saying he has gained more wight than he has lost. If the joke used kg, then it would be more relevant to the developed civilised world.

  3. Ah, I see. Thank you

  4. “The developed civilised world” is not much better, since the kilogram is actually a unit of measurement of mass, not weight. Weight is a force and is measured in newtons.

  5. Backward countries? Like the UK?

    The yard or the metre shall be the unit of measurement of length and the pound or the kilogram shall be the unit of measurement of mass by reference to which any measurement involving a measurement of length or mass shall be made in the United Kingdom; and- (a) the yard shall be 0.9144 metre exactly; (b) the pound shall be 0.45359237 kilogram exactly.
