Her bottom is slim, but nice

So I learned something today. I had just kinda assumed she was a Latina singer in some way. Wrong. Here was my thought process on this:

Step 1. “I’m not sure if there is such a thing as a ‘typical’ Latina body, but if there is, she sure doesn’t have it.”

Step 2: “I’m curious. I’ll look in Wikipedia.”

Step 3: “She has zero percent Latina blood. Her ancestry is totally Italian on both sides.”

Son of a gun! Mea culpa.

Yvonne Strahovski in Manhattan Night AKA Manhattan Nocturne (2016)

This was our Top Nude Scene of 2016, although I completely disagreed. The vote was an outpouring of love for Yvonne, but her scenes were mediocre. I voted for Olivia Wilde in Vinyl, though I felt that the best nude scene of that year was actually done by the body double in The Bronze. (Michelle Derstine, body doubling for Melissa Rauch.)

If I remember correctly, this 1984 film was the first-ever Disney film with nudity. (Disney released it under their new Touchstone label.)

And it was years ahead of Guillermo del Toro in the prestigious fish-fuckin’ genre.

UPDATE: A commenter reminded me that Caitlin Clarke’s body double did an ever-so-brief butt + sideboob shot in Dragonslayer.

The headline: “Dinner honors president shithole”

Hey, I read that article. I thought it was about Trump.

“Facebook Inc said on Saturday it was working to find out how Chinese leader Xi Jinping’s name appeared as ‘Mr Shithole’ in posts on its platform when translated into English from Burmese.”

NOTE to self: When enjoying Burmese cuisine, do not order the Jinping. Better avoid the Xi as well, just in case.

He wasted the rest.

This was not some fly-by-night guy from some scam degree mill like Trump University or Arizona State. He is the former chairman of Drexel’s Engineering Department!

(Sorry, Sun Devils. You deserve better. Well, slightly better.)

Years ago I created a humor page of my suggestions for state slogans. For one of those sparsely populated states that nobody sane would visit, I suggested “always plenty of free parking.” At the time, I thought I was being absurd, but we now live in absurd times, so now we have …

Follow your curiosity, not the crowds.”

Unfortunately for them, I am mostly curious about things people like.
