Lunchtime Quickie

posted by on August 13 at 12:06 PM

Americans are so obsessed with this, I think it’s high time we paid more attention to the beauty of this. Me personally, when I finally scratch that winning lotto ticket in the 7-Eleven parking lot, I will, without one doubt, buy myself one of these:

The butt's not the only thing that got Brazilian!

Thank you Kelly.

I really needed that. I could watch that over and over. Perfection indeed.

People think Americans are so obsessed with beauty. Quite contrary I meet vastly MORE people who don't give a shit about their health/looks than people who are hyper sensitive about it. Those that are gaga over good looks? They seem to be in South America and Europe. Correct me if I'm wrong.

@3 It's not about being obsessed over good looks. It is about appreciating women who strive to work at having superior physiques. It isn't about being gaga over good looks, as much as it is about appreciating the endangered species: a woman who has a toned midsection and ass.

Having a girlfriend/wife that takes care of herself says something about how much they love themselves to remain healthy and in shape.

Guys aren't into the plastic waif model look filled with silicone, as much as they seek someone who simply has a tone to their body.

Boobs are all fine and good, but if she ain't got no butt...ew...

I require booty!

Veronica Mars is awesome and whoever doesn't think so is an idiot!

Oops, that was yesterday's Lunchtime Quickie...

Why not have both?

finally, plastic surgery is ethically defensible.

I agree with you Reality Check, but in America everything has to be taken to the extremes. Either we are all anorexic or we are all fat! Nobody is allowed to be healthy, it's too much of an identity crisis.

Um, why?

@10 - I snort a lot of Ritalin.

Anyway, no - Brazilians are the more obsessed with plastic surgery and perfection. I lived there for three years. They're very "out" about procedures, too. It's a status symbol to have breast implants at age 14 or a nose job for graduation. MORE so than in the United States.

I didn't notice much of a difference in the "after" butt though.

It's not the booty you ar egiven, but how you carry it. One needs no infusion of cash or painful surgery to have a massively hot booty, just plenty of soul.

I spent that entire video searching the background for guys in speedos.

From the sound of things, supposedly there was a girl with a nice ass somewhere in there, too.

you don't need surgery to build a butt. just do squats and stuff. if you look at some of the female weightlifters in beijing, especially the ones that didn't medal you see lots of badonkadonk
