It turns out that the worldwide known heart-shape, the symbol of love, doesnt have to do anything with its anatomic original. An American psychologist says it wasnt the human heart but the womens buttocks that were used as its prototype. heart shape looks like woman's bum
Galdino Pranzarone, a psychologist from the Roanoke College in Salem , Virginia , says that the red chubby heart, the symbol of love, was inspired by womens body shape . He suggests that it was the beauty of womens buttocks that inspired our predecessors to use this part of the body as a symbol that later on became the symbol of love.
"We can hardly say that the two halves of the red heart shape correspond to the two lobes of the ear or two ventricles of the heart put together, - says the scientist. Pranzarone also said that the real human heart could never be that scarlet. He adds the heart doesnt have a hollow on top and a bevel from top to bottom. Yet woman's buttocks have this very contour.
During his research, professor Prazarone has scrupulously analyzed volumes of literary and mythological sources and found the supporting evidence for his hypothesis. The psychologist reminds that even ancient Greeks glorified the beauty of womens body, especially of the reverse side of it, so to speak. For example, Aphrodite was considered the goddess of beauty inspiring everybody mostly by the shape of her buttocks. The Greeks even constructed a temple called Aphrodite Kallipygos that can be translated as Goddess with Beautiful Buttocks.
No Kidding. Cleavage is another one that has more to do with this heart shape thingy
At least it's not camel toes.........
I'm here on this thread entirely interested in the article only of course.
Figures that a psychologist would think of this. I've also seen it claimed that the pubic region is the real origin of the heart shape.
Yeah, okay, sure you are............You were hoping for pictures weren't you?.........
Proof that we didn't evolve from baboons....
Makes sense...although, I now have the world's biggest heart!
I like big butts and I can not lie
You other brothers can't deny
That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waste
And a round thing in your face
You get sprung
Wanna pull up front
Cuz you notice that butt was stuffed
Deep in the jeans she's wearing
I'm hooked and I can't stop staring
Oh, baby I wanna get with ya
And take your picture
I knew we'd get to the bottom of this eventually.
Butt now we have our hands full..........
There's an idea I can get behind...
What you gon' do with all that junk?
All that junk inside that trunk?
I drive these brothers crazy,
I do it on the daily,
They treat me really nicely,
They buy me all these ices.
Dolce & Gabbana,
Fendi and NaDonna
Karan, they be sharin'
All their money got me wearin' fly
But I ain't askin,
They say they love my *** in,
Seven Jeans, True Religion's,
I say no, but they keep givin'
So I keep on takin'
And no I ain't taken
We can keep on datin'
I keep on demonstrating.
The rest is probably more than I want to post on a family website
"I like big butts and I can not lie "
I almost choked when my kid said that yesterday! I just could not stop laughing for a while.
Does not remind me of a heart but I'll give it another look.
it look more like Al 'Bafoon' Frankin
