When you say "abundance", do you mean wearing two pair of jeans at once?

Posted by Dougsf | May 8, 2008 1:42 PM

Posted by A Non Imus | May 8, 2008 1:48 PM

SHE'S chubby?

Posted by Karen Carpenter | May 8, 2008 1:52 PM

@2 I'd take her over some pointy, no-assed gym rat any day.

Posted by Hernandez | May 8, 2008 2:08 PM

Are you fucking kidding me? This is so beyond old. All we need to complete the day is a creepy post about Amanda Knox.

"what has been called globalization but was in fact Americanization."

The first good point you've made in months. Very interesting.

Posted by Non | May 8, 2008 2:11 PM

Charles, you need to get yourself some Gianna videos.

Ummm yes she is indeed overweight. Women shouldn't be carrying belly fat like her in that second picture. If you'd stop staring at her magnificent tits for a moment, you'd see her rolls are bulging from her jeans.

This picture makes it clear that America's munitions can't hold a candle to the power of our mass culture. NOTHING can resist our memes!

charles, your desire to publicly air your masturbation material by attaching it to a screed about capitalism is strange and gross. get help.

Posted by brandon | May 8, 2008 2:31 PM

I for one am saying Oh My.

Wasn't she in that movie about Tamil tigers that was filmed by somebody in India? The one about all the duality of existence?

Posted by Will in Seattle | May 8, 2008 2:35 PM

THAT'S what I'm talking about.

Posted by Gurldoggie | May 8, 2008 2:38 PM


Can I have the pointy, no-assed gym rat then?

Posted by Steve P. | May 8, 2008 2:47 PM

thats it, im joining the tamil tigers!

she reminds me of a healthier version of mexico's bibi gaitan.

@15 - you can have them.

Posted by Will in Seattle | May 8, 2008 3:02 PM

I was going to say, "here comes the deluge of out-of-touch porn-addicted guys to say how fat she is" but ehhm... looks like I'm too late.

Posted by w7ngman | May 8, 2008 3:04 PM

i wish i could wear 2 pairs of jeans.

Posted by Bellevue Ave | May 8, 2008 3:27 PM

@19 Not here. This interpretation has nothing to do with basing my opinion on out of touch porn star comparisons. No human woman should carry fat in that location, let she be out of shape, not eating healthy, or recently given birth. The female human form is not designed to carry weight forward of the belly, as that was reserved for holding a baby.

Simply put, it is not aesthetically pleasing.

But you can still keep trying to make the case that I'm a porn obsessed heathen. It still makes you look stupid either way.

Posted by Just Sayin' | May 8, 2008 3:27 PM

I've spend months in sum in india and I never saw a single hot girl there. I wonder how that works....

Posted by Andrew | May 8, 2008 3:33 PM

GOD talk about Fat Chicks!!! Cann't they purge or something I mean that is grossly FAT!!!

Posted by Cato the Younger Younger | May 8, 2008 3:35 PM

@21, isnt the fact that women do carry fat there and are found attractive by many people a good contradiction that they are "fat" or unattractive to anyone but you and a handful of other people?

Posted by Bellevue Ave | May 8, 2008 3:39 PM

i've seen better tatties.

globally distributed junk in the trunk is not a recipe for sustainability.

Posted by max solomon | May 8, 2008 3:40 PM

@22 - depends on where in India you go - it's a subcontinent, with many different areas. Kind of like saying "All American women are Jewish or Italian" after visiting one neighborhood in NYC ...

Posted by Will in Seattle | May 8, 2008 3:42 PM

i beleive she is from sri lanka as is MIA.

yall on crack, tons of babes in india- upper and lower caste.

some of those untouchables are hot!

Posted by SeMe | May 8, 2008 3:46 PM

good god, she's not fat. she's just wearing a pair of pants -- no, 2 of them -- that are an unfortunate size too small.

Posted by brandon | May 8, 2008 3:47 PM

I'd like to globalize my penis.

Posted by Greg | May 8, 2008 4:10 PM

#21, that wasn't really my "case", but ok.

Do you have a cite for your wonderful insights into how the female body "should" be? Or are you just going to keep talking out your ass?

At this point, your argument seems to boil down to, "I don't find her aesthetically pleasing, therefore she is overweight".

Jokes about porn aside, I don't think I'm the one looking stupid.

OK, then. Maybe you should get back to us after you've actually come in contact with a few actual women, rather than just drawing pictures of them in your Pee-Chee.
Posted by Fnarf | May 8, 2008 4:23 PM

Zaftig - Now there's a word that's underutilized. And she's so much prettier than those bulemic/anorexic walking toasters.

Posted by Spoogie | May 8, 2008 4:26 PM

Could it be true? Is the unthinkable happening? I caught myself admiring the full-figures of several charming co-eds today (it's finally spring in Boston) and couldn't figure out if it was the power of Slog suggestion or what, but damn, they were hot.

she's hot. And oh man, Fnarf. You just made me really happy.

Posted by el | May 8, 2008 4:41 PM

Aww, adorable.

Posted by tabletop_joe | May 8, 2008 4:42 PM

I clicked on the link Charles posted in that article (not certain why, really) and found this in the "latest" news section:

Namitha ready to set the Big Screen on fire with her New 'Sexy Slim Look'
Date: 23 Feb 2007

Namitha is all set to hit the silver screen with her new look. The hot South Indian actress is said to have lost considerable weight and is looking very sexy and beautiful. Watch out for this glamorous actress in soon to be released movies that include the English movie ‘Maya’.

What's more American that being beautiful and curvy...and then immediately set about starving yourself thin in order to pursue fame and fortune.

For the first time in Sloghistory, I might actually agree with Charles about something.

(Though you're STILL out of your mind and absolutely wrong about that one Full Metal Jacket scene...)

Posted by pgreyy | May 8, 2008 4:45 PM

The thing is, SHE'S NOT ZAFTIG. She's actually pretty skinny. She just has big bazoombas, and her pants are really tight. Most women are not rock-hard through the midsection; why would they be? Why would they want to be? Why would YOU want them to be?

Posted by Fnarf | May 8, 2008 5:15 PM

Oh, poor Fnarf...don't you know that kissing up to chubby girls won't get you laid?

The woman has belly button cleavage. I don't give a fuck how much you want to politicize body image, or pretend that most "actual women" are somehow the image of health (especially in this country) -- this woman is not thin.

Posted by A Non Imus | May 8, 2008 6:25 PM

@ A Non Imus: Why don't you put on a pair of hiphuggers a size or two too small and watch the belly button cleavage that appears?

Posted by Sha | May 8, 2008 6:42 PM

A Non Imus, I'm not trying to get laid. And I really, really hope you're not, either, because you're kind of coming off like a dick, there, with the "chubby" stuff.

Posted by Fnarf | May 8, 2008 9:08 PM


You're the one who has previously whined about not being able to get laid. It's sure hard to figure out why that is.
