Oh man, now that is truly funny. The popular opinion of the internet is a beautiful thing. I think I’ll call it “The Bootytrain Manifesto”.

Funny? No my friend, this is truly great. The chance of seeing well defined asses on the internet is what keeps me waking up in the morning.

the captions are the best. “Russian water polo player Maria Yaina prepares for team training at the Athens Olympic Aquatic centre on August 13, 2004”, when what it really should say is, “Here is a totally random picture of Maria Yaina’s Ass.”

I have always been a strong proponent of Womens Beach Volleyball

This is almost as good as Diary of an Ass Monkey blog. Well, no really, it’s just as good, but not infinite like the Ass Monkey.

I can’t explain why the pope picking his nose ranks with a bunch of Olympic female butts, but it still makes me laugh.

I noticed that too! All by different photographers. Obviously the Reuters photogs have orders to shoot ass. Er… or something like that.

As Ron Gilbert said:

Did you check out that solid muscle? Any one of those women could handily kick your asses for staring at theirs.

At this point, the Olympian asses are taking over Yahoo’s Most Popular images.

My God, the Brazilians. I’m so very glad I ran into this today.

Wow, MISTY MAY! :O

And now … the news coverage turns to “Olympian Girl-On Girl Action”.

I luv Misty May! Whats wrong with admiring the female form? It’s art.

My home page is an SBC Yahoo! DSL one that I customized. On the left top I put
is the module “most e-mailed Yahoo! photos”. I have also noticed the preponderance
of girl butts which I enjoy immensely, even looking at them once per day until they
drop off. But howsabout the gay angle? Lots of the most e-mailed photos can be
construed as popular because there are many gay Yahoo! members. Take the
men’s Greek Synchronized diving team: two guys huggind tummy-to-back, awaiting
their score to come up? They were so synchronized that in the final group of dives,
they made one dive that had one big error. But they WON because they both made
the same exact error at the same time. Also May-on Walsh and many other girl-girl
and guy-gut photos have been up there. My opinion is that they really ARE the most
e-mailed photos, but that the e-mailers are not just hetero but homosexuals interested
mostly in sex!
