Tush Touché

When I first read the story I'm about to relate to you I thought of that old line "I need a new butt, mine's got a crack in it." Okay, so I laughed when when I was thirteen. Not so much now. But I had to laugh at the following story, even though, speaking of butts, it came to a sad end.

Police in Philadelphia are investigating the circumstances of a British woman's death. She apparently died of complications from butt enhancement surgery. Now get this. The surgery didn't take place in a doctor's office or even in a hospital. It took place in a hotel room. Yeah. The Hampton Inn near the Philadelphia International Airport. I don't know about you but I'm bummed out.

What did this woman think she was getting in for? A butt enhancement job in a hotel? Yeah, right. And why? Did she want a new keister for Easter? Did she want to impress her husband dear with a new rear? Was she hoping to push for a tush like J. Lo?

What an asset!

How the heck did all this come to p-ass? (heh, heh) Did the hotel accidently place an ambiguous ad in the London Times aimed at getting the homeless off the streets of Philadelphia?

"Stay With Us. No Bums Turned Away"

Maybe it was the doctor who placed small discreet messages in the Guardian want-ads:

"Do your mates say you have a boney butt? Well now you can turn the other cheek!"

Geez, what if it was the city itself that enticed Brits abroad:

"Visit the City of Brotherly Love and Leave Your Worries Behind"


"Philadelphia: The City That Loves You(r) Back(side)!"

The procedure, not recognized by the FDA, involves silicon injections. Yeah, probably at "inflated" prices, too. And how "wide-spread" is this surgery? I'll bet there's no "end" to the number of illicit butt enhancers out there.

Well, it's hard to see a positive aspect to this sad tale (tail?). But I guess we could say that for this poor unidentified female that the worst is behind her.

Ha! Philadelphia: The City of Butt-erly Love.

I could sure use a new ass - any ass at all would be nice - but I don't think I'd go to Philly for it.

00dozo: Oh, good one. And, yeah, I wouldn't go to Philly for a new ass either. I mean look what they did to the Liberty Bell.

Perfect platform for your puns and buns. Actually, the pictured butt is too much rear for me. I could share with a friend and still have enough to wipe.

This unfortunate woman will be the butt of jokes for a long time to come.

Quirks: Had you cracking up, did I?
nonamedufus said…
Donnie: That pic is J. Lo, There's a race on among her, Beyonce and Kim Kardashian to see who could be, um, er, have the biggest ass.
nonamedufus said…
Cube: Hahaha, yes indeed. You're new in these parts. Glad you dropped in and left a comment.

I wouldn't even go to Philly for a cheese steak, much less big butt from a Philly motel.
Leeuna said…
Hahahaha. This news story is right up your alley, Dufe. It is a pundit's dream. I loved the "a new keister for Easter" line. Hilarious!
Kelly said…
I wonder if her name was Dawn because she wasn't safe.

Get it? Oh, I crack myself up!
nonamedufus said…
Linda: I'm sure it's a nice place to visit but I wouldn't want to bum around there.
nonamedufus said…
Leeuna: I liked that one too. A thesaurus is a wonderful thing.
nonamedufus said…
Kelly. It dawns on me that you might have to explain that one a bit. Maybe I'm a "little behind" when it comes to contemporary cultural references.
Jen said…
As much as I would like a new ass I feel bad for this woman who thought if she went to those kinds of extremes it would make her life better. It's really sad what women will do to their bodies just to look like something that has been airbrushed.
nonamedufus said…
Jen: I don't get it either. But then I don't get the attraction of an oversized butt either. Call me old fashioned.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
