It's like phrenology, only just a bit cheekier....


Because I am completely empty-headed today, I wandered over to one of my favorite sites, The Skeptic's Dictionary, where I found some New Age pablum ...

"Rumpology":

According to Jacqueline Stallone, a foremost American rumpologist, rump reading is an art that was practiced in ancient Babylon, India, Greece, and Rome. She claims that the ancient Greeks thought the butt was the key to health and fidelity. She says the Romans used butt prints the way some people use graphology today: to determine potential talents and future success.

She does readings by mail. Just send her a digital photo of your rump and she will analyze it for a fee ($125, and she takes major credit cards and PayPal). Her website includes examples of appropriate rump shots, including one of "a male action hero movie star," "a Jewish princess," and "a Fortune 500 CEO." She'll not only give you a butt reading for your money, but she'll send you an 8 1/2 x 11 glossy color print of your butt, suitable for framing.

Enjoy :)

I just don't think I could look at the asses of asses all day, even if I was stealing the money.

However, I will check it out. Even when I was quite thin, I had a lot of cellulite, which may or may not explain my bumpy road thus far.

Thanks for the diversion.

Lol! :)

Franchises are opening everywhere. We provide the Fake Blindness Contact Lenses, teach you how to market yourself in underground newspapers and at Woo-woo Conventions, and how to position the hidden cameras.

Get in at the bottom floor!

Heehee! 125 bucks to check out an ass? Send the prints to me-I'll do it for free. I have no medical background though....

:O)

You wouldn't be giving us the "bum's rush" today, would you? :-)

WHOA - a foremost American rumpologist - who knew!

De, I don't think I could either. It's amazing what some people will do for a buck. What's even more amazing is that some people will buy it. Crikey!

Caro, it sure gave me a good laugh!

Anonymous, LOL! That's what I understand is coming next.

MsPea, yeah.. that would get me to Thailand faster. I'll do it, too! I'll look at someone's ass and very thoughtfully say, "You have a problem with food, eh?"

Ba, I never rush where bums are concerned. :)

QT, as they say.. anything is for sale here. LOL

I'll have to buy a wide-angle lens to take a photo of my arse...

deb said...

Thanks for the laugh. I checked out the link you provided and read about a blind man who runs his hands over people's asses. I'm sorry but all I can think of is dirty old man getting his kicks and charging people for it.
As for anyone, other than my family and of course all the ladies at the YMCA, looking at my ass, no thanks. At least, not until I'm an old, old lady, lying in a hospital bed. Then some young nurse'll come along, turn me over to change my diaper and find all my tattoos.

Laurie, what's a step up from "wide angle"? I know it would take a billboard, not a 8X11, to get a good shot of my rear end! :)

Deb, oh.. that gave me such a laugh! :)

meno said...

Damn! Why didn't i think of that business. I'd read your ass for a mere $120.00.

What next? A mammologist? A scrotologist?

Thanks for the laugh.

Chani, I think Jacqueline Stallone is Sylvester's mother.

Back in the 80's, a magazine sprang up called "Playgirl" which featured nude centerfolds of men. Sly Stallone was the first one, and I was amazed that Rocky's peepee was in fact child-sized. I was also amazed that he displayed it, considering.

So, moving right along. Buttology. Mmmm. I'm fresh out of ideas.

Hmm, the question is does she run an amateur butt-shot site on the side?

To answer your camera question - it is a cannon 35D. I bought it with my bonus money one year and has never regretted it.
