    Re: Paid to

    To tower above them. To make them appear to be dwarves in comparison.

    Amazon Amanda

    The word "dwarf" can be a verb as well as a noun. Amazon Amanda is paid for what she does. (In American English we would say pounds, not stone.) Go to: http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=...1B88F1007CE06E

    Re: Amazon Amanda

    Is paid to dwarf men. Does it mean, she has been paid by dwarfs?

    Re: Amazon Amanda

    Amazon Amanda is large, and, well, a picture is worth a thousand words. And there are several pictures of Amanda on the website(s) if you care to look at them.

    Re: Amazon Amanda

    That guy in the video does look like a dwarf next to her. But only by comparison. (I can't see paying somebody to do that stuff, but that's me.)
