In the animation ''Free birds'' some people are standing in front of their governor's house shouting and asking for food. One of them says ''we are hungry now.''
The governor says ''we all are hungry''. One of them says ''you don't look hungry''. (The governor is fat).

Then the governor says: ''I've got a hypothyroid issue.''

What does he mean by ''a hypothyroid issue''?

    To nitpick cyberpedant's answer: The thyroid is an endocrine gland. "Hypothyroid" is the condition of that gland being underactive.
    Of course, you're right. I was just about to edit that one. "Hypothyroidism" is the condition. So I guess what the governor should have said is "thyroid issue."
