vertically challenged

Short; not tall in stature. (Pseudo-politically correct slang used for humorous effect.) Whenever anyone teases me about my height, I just tell them that I'm vertically challenged! Yeah, my boyfriend is a little vertically challenged, but he's the most loving man I've ever known.
