For sure. 

If God let me choose a singing voice, I'd choose Mama Cass, hands down.  ?

Real Men like women who look like women and who have real women's bodies, as opposed to some gay fashion magazine editor's idea of what a woman should look like, which, in sum, is a prepubescent boy.

You're awesome, Andy!  I'd give you the "thumbs up" smiley, but I can't do smilies from home.  *d'oh*   ;)

Women who are too thin (and by that I mean they look like a concentration camp survivor) are just not attractive.  There is a big difference in naturally thin and sickly thin.  My boss' daughter is 19, looks like she's about 13, and disappears if she turns sideways.  The girl eats like a horse, but never gains weight.  She's just very small and thin, just like her maternal grandmother.

I just had this same discussion in reverse the other day on another forum.  This magazine published an edition with a local woman on it in a bunch of glamor shots.  She looked very thin compared to how she looked before and a lot of people thought she looked sick.  The funny thing is, pictures taken just a few weeks later during a recent live performance showed her looking just like she always has, a healthy weight.  They clearly photoshopped her pictures so much that her arms looked like they'd snap under 5lbs of force.

And the woman in that picture at the top of the thread is not attractive.

And speaking of Photoshop, anyone ever see this video of how much it can change someone's appearance in a picture?

I will refrain from commenting on Ms. Kardashian, if only because she has already been the butt of too many jokes.

In Tom Wolfe's work "A Man in Full" (1998) one of the main female characters, middle aged Martha Croker, joins a gym in order to regain her svelte figure. Several times Wolfe describes her female gym mates, all 20 something trophy wives, as "boys with tits".

Absolutely! And it removes the danger of spontaneous combustion! Plus, as a Portuguese-Italian, I have always subscribed to the belief that desirable women are like rock climbing. They require handholds. And skinny models look like ironing boards. And we don't like ironing.  :smokin:

Saw this online; it's kinda hard to see, but you can see where they moved her hips and fattened her arms.

This is pretty funny.  Makes me think of a hula girl doll dancing on a dashboard.

The video reminded me of that Chinese man who sued his wife for his ugly children....she had $400K US invested in cosmetic surgery.  LOL!
