Let he who is without body issues cast the first stone

Posted on March 6th, 2006

A friend of mine works out at a women-only gym, because she'd like to enjoy the simple dignity of exercising without being gawked at. I hope it brings her satisfaction to know that men are just as unnerved by her scrutiny. When you're dripping sweat and too tired to suck in your gut, who doesn't feel vulnerable? Indeed, her Curves membership will probably spare some idiot a hernia.

I'd write more on the subject, but the Oscars are starting and I'm really hoping to see Scarlett Johansson kick Isaac Mizrahi in the nuts.


P.S. Okay, Brokeback losing to Crash was bad enough, but the complete absence of a Mizrahi nut-kicking? I just wish he'd tried that shit with the wrong ingénue.

Words & Pictures hits another milestone!

Unfortunately, I'm referring to our first late update. Our hosting company had to shut down network ftp access for a while to patch a hole in their security drywall. Which is just another way of saying ”totally not our fault”.

If you didn't visit the site Monday, you can safely ignore this message the same way you would PEN1S-enlarging spam or a homeless person. To everyone else, we offer our sincere apologies. The silver lining is that we were surprised and flattered by the amount of concerned, curious and occasionally hostile e-mail we received from readers eager for their weekly fix. We're already working on a special bonus offering for next week to reward your patience and vaguely unsettling fanaticism.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled comic.
