Long legs and friendly bums appreciated

Comments Polish limb boffins have concluded that 'perfect' legs are 5 per cent longer than average. They had volunteers rate silhouettes according to attractiveness, and found that a bit of legginess went a long way. Unfortunately for the lanky among us, however, limbs 10 per cent longer than average were considered even less attractive than run-of-the-mill legs. Kylie was inevitably trotted out as an example of top celebrity leg.

Pull the other one

Kylie's popularity amongst men IMHO has less to do with the length of her legs than with her propensity to do entire dance sequences in her underwear.

Who paid for this, and WHY?

Can I get a grant to find the perfect breast please?

These were just silhouettes? I'm not sure I'd be interested enough to really evaluate the choices properly.. At the very least, pictures of the whole 'package' would make a better survey. Best of course would be an actual visual 'measurement' encounter, but where to find an obliging set of body doubles*??? Icon self-explanatory

What about artists's models? They are used to posing nude in front of audiences, and (probably) would not mind being judged this way...

So, if "fat bottom girls make the rocking world go round" does that mean fat bottom girls have longer than average legs? Mind you this was sung by someone who wasn't famous for liking girls......

Once a topic has been researched, follow up reseach is essencial to confirm or deny the earlier results, in this instance might I suggest lots and lots of follow up research... Oh, and may I put myself forward for one of these prestigeous testing posts when the next round of leg/breast research is being conducted?

Ah... now then AnonCow, just for the record, "I have no preference for the left leg, or for the right leg, but somewhere inbetween".

And finally, I seem to remember reading someplace that the ideal length for a pair of legs is, "long enough to reach the ground".

Now then, where's my CAMELskin coat?

But if you're unfortunate enough not to have perfect legs, an agreeable tush could get you a long way. You'd certainly be in the running for a job as a 'healthcare informaticist', which calls for "a friendly posterior". Nail the interview and you could get your hands on a "generous package", provided of course that you have "2-3 yrs experience under your belt".

this shold be in "bootynotes"

There's a guy in our office whose arse is very anti-social today.

We've nearly run out of air freshener and may have to start spraying pledge around to cover the smell.

Paris [icon] due to her allegedly friendly arse...

Sounds like a bum job to me. A quick search revealed this:

"As the position of Clinical Informaticist is relatively new, there is no specific training required by a governing or licensing body. Rather each hospital or research facility sets the requirements within their research or Management Information Systems team. "

Maybe it's a job for the Hospital Administrator's or Chief Consultant's mistress and salary may depend on how friendly her posterior is.

You other brothers can't deny they like sociable posteriors and they cannot lie.
