Does this make my butt look big?

July 3, 2008

Dear Blog Guy, I have a fashion problem and I hope you can help. People tell me I have a very nice build, but I think I’d prefer to look like I have a huge butt. Does anyone design clothes that do that?

Wow, I have to say I don’t get that request very often. You should check out an outfit I tracked down for you at a Paris fashion show just yesterday. If this doesn’t protect you from bothersome compliments, nothing will.

They finally hire a model that doesn’t conform to your sexist view of woman, and this is the thanks they get.

Her butt isn’t huge. It is her head and torso that are freakishly small.
