butt naturally

And here's what we had started to post when we learned that we were a spam blog *mutter, mutter, mutter*

The Scotsman tells us that
a team of researchers from Edinburgh's Heriot-Watt University are launching what is believed to be the world's first scientific study to answer the often asked question of how clothing can affect the appearance of the female rear.

The team, from the university's School of Textiles and Design, based in Galashiels, believe the study could have major implications for retailers.
Yeah right. A bunch of scientists staring at female posteriors all day and getting funded to do so. We should be so lucky. Ig Nobel, anyone?

Oh yes.
four models had been chosen to provide as representative as possible a sample of female rears.
There are only four?

I bet some rearguard action will be in place to prevent the IgNobel. Oh well, perhaps they will leave behinds on the sands of time. Perhaps the abstract will begin "In hindsight ..."


Titling a post on a pun is dangerous.

I've been to Galashiels and am sooooooo surprised to know that a town like THAT has managed to inspire such a study. Must ask my friend who works in the university there for more details though... this is really very funny!!!
