Just the other day, The Splurgerina reminded me of this interesting trivia, after she watched some Jessica Simpson show. In Uganda, I’ll quote from VH1’s Episode Summary “The Hima tribe values their women as they value their cattle, “the fatter, the better.” That’s right. In fact, a bride-to-be spends about 2 months in a “fattening hut” where she is supposed to have milk and “ghee” to become all plump and beautiful for the wedding. Elsewhere in the world, it would be lethal to think we are complimenting a woman when we call her a beautiful fat cow.
Every now and then, we guys face one of the most dreaded questions of all time – “Do you think I look fat?” We know that we are in for trouble no matter what we reply. Well, you girls know it and probably even enjoy it. When I say this, I say for all the men out there – “This is one question we would probably not be afraid of, if we were in Uganda.” On second thought, would we face a different question i.e. “Do you think I’m too skinny?” Damn it! Women…
The Price Of Beauty’s Episode “Fat is beautiful” is already on YouTube.
