Hoses of the Holy in the Parallel Universe

March 16, 2006

It's the scare quotes

...that make this story from BBC NEWS: Men's beer belly 'days are over'. In the link I followed, it also said that men are 'no longer proud' to have a beer belly.

"According to the study, the body most men aspire to is that of England football captain David Beckham."

Well, always one to buck a trend, I can confess that the body I most aspire to is that of Lake Bell from the TV show Surface. Boom boom, as Basil Brush might say. And how did he end up with a show on CBBC?

  • From the shoulders up on that picture she has the face of one of those kids TV leprechauns that were compared with Leslie Ash after she'd had her lips blown up.

    Still, there's no looking at the mantlepiece is there?

    I still admire beer bellies. And sherry bosoms for that matter too.

  • Besides, as any man-fule over 30 know: big belly = big pork sausage.
