In another classic case of angles betraying a brother, the internet is abuzz about a photo that supposedly catches Barack Obama and French President Nicolas Sarkozy checking out some young girl’s ass. The claim is questionable, at best. News video shows that it was just a bad angle that gives a false Bill Clintonesque appearance to the two world leaders. Just to play Devil’s Advocate, however, suppose Obama and Sarkozy really did take a glance at some random ass. Is that REALLY newsworthy?
Yes, Barack Obama is the President of the United States, and yes Nicolas Sarkozy already has a trophy wife of his own in France…but they are both still men. Men are visual creatures. We look at ass. It’s just what we do! Exercising discretion is the key, because it’s never a good look to flat-out ogle some butt cheeks. To paraphrase a line from the movie “Role Models”, you have to treat booty like the sun: You never stare directly at it.
That said, a guy will slip up from time to time and get caught off guard by a nice backside and become compelled to look. Even married guys. ESPECIALLY married guys, because looking is all they can do in good conscience. In that split second, discretion goes out the window, and “I’d like to hit that” becomes the prevailing thought in your mind. In most men, the mind quickly switches back to whatever the hell else was going on shortly after getting that glance out of our system. It’s only bad in three instances:
- If you yell out “GOD DAMN GIRL!” and proceed to harass her,
- if you are with your lady when it happens, and she sees you looking
- If other judgmental pricks catch you in the act, as this photo almost sorta-kinda illustrates.
I was going to dedicate this paragraph on a detailed analysis of why that girl’s ass is not nice enough, but that would force me to impose my own high standard of tail appreciation on two older gentlemen whom I’ve never met before. Plus, it would force me to objectify our brilliant, wonderful First Lady by talking about her shapely, ample backside and comparing it to some foreign jail bait in some flip-flops. I do stuff like that all the time with actresses and models, so I’m going to show some respect for one of the best role models around for young ladies and refrain from typing such nastiness.
See? I’m not always a cretinous oaf. Nor is Obama or Sarkozy. This photo is a bad angle, like the John MeCain and Sarah Palin one that I posted on here last fall. It did give me something interesting to talk about right now, so I’m glad it was taken. Otherwise, this might be another random entry dedicated to my love affair with bacon!
