arsing around

Bridesmaids rarely look stylish
(refer to movie 27 Dresses ),
and this may be why the idiot-press
is now fixated on a total side-bar to
recent events in London.

"Great minds discuss ideas,
Average minds discuss events,
Small minds discuss people" ...
and if Eleanor Roosevelt,
to whom that is attributed,
was still with us, she might add

... and total plonkers discuss backsides.

Although, there are backsides ... and there are backsides:

Does my arse look big in this?

'The bulk of the gluteal muscle mass
contributes only partially to shape of the buttocks.
The other major contributing factor is that of
the panniculus adiposus of the buttocks, which is very well developed in this area, and gives the buttock its characteristic rounded shape.
Although the gluteal muscle bulk and tone can be improved with massage and exercise, it is the disposition of the overlying panniculus adiposus which may be responsible for the "sagging butt" phenomenon.
Exercise of the body in general which can contribute to fat loss can lead to reduction of mass in subcutaneal fat storage locations on the body which includes the panniculus, so for leaner and more active individuals, the glutes will more predominantly contribute to the shape than someone less active with a fattier composition. The degree of body fat stored in various locations such as the panniculus is dictated by genetic and hormonal profiles ...'

Is it a relief to know it is not diet forming that huge stern we are glad we cannot see?
