Battle !!!!!

This one caught my attention, oh you betcha:

I’m thinking naked, in the mud pit:

Claudia Winkleman

Fiona Bruce

Gabby Logan

Jo Whiley

Karin Giannone

Kate Silverton  — recently voted “Most Kissable Mouth in Great Britain”*

Katie Derham

Natasha Kaplinsky

Stacey Dooley

Susanna Reid

…oh wait;  apparently, the girls will have to fight for their jobs with screen tests.  Well, that’s a mood-killer.

Never mind.

*recently voted “Most Kissable Mouth in Great Britain” — by me.  Because it is.


I need to start watching more Winter Olympic sports.  Here’s what prompted this statement:

The ‘world’s hottest speed skater’ Jutta Leerdam has revealed she used her ‘extra fat’ and strength to become a world champion in December. Leerdam was in action at the ISU Speed Skating World Cup in Calgary two weeks ago and impressed.

Leerdam said: “I have become stronger and heavier. I now use that extra fat as strength.”

So let’s take a look at this fat chick:


Gotta tell y’all, there’s not a whole lot to complain about here.  Yes, she has nutcracker thighs and a muscular ass, but she’s a speed skater, FFS:  that comes with the territory.

I personally think she’s still shy of a few pasta dinners, but that’s just my preference showing through.  YMMV.

Have Mercy

Longtime Reader Brad_In_IL sends me a link to an article about “tennis” influencer Rachel Stuhlmann.

Who she, you ask?

Now I put “tennis” in quotes because as far as I can ascertain, there are no pictures or videos extant of her actually playing tennis.

Not that I care.

I also have no idea what, exactly, this young thing (31) actually influences, but again, I don’t care.  Whatever she says is fine with me.

Rear View

The problem with all this self-promotion on Teh Intarwebz nowadays is that people — young women especially — have no clue about how to present themselves to the camera.

Marilyn Monroe, for example, was told early on in her career that she had an unattractive full smile (her teeth were a little too big, and a “big” smile showed her upper gum):

…which is why, in just about every MM pic, you only see half-smiles, or else head-thrown back poses (which foreshorten the teeth and hide the upper gum):

She had someone helping her with her image, you see.

All this came to mind when I saw some nameless Insta-Tok hussy posing as (I think) Mrs. Claus:

…which is fine, I guess — but is completely undone by the next pic, taken from the rear:

Awful.  Had the photographer had any idea, he’d have changed the shot — had her bend forward slightly, maybe, to tighten the saggies.

No clue, any of them.  Compare and contrast:

…’nuff said.
