The funny thing is that when Sir Mix A Lot wrote that song, he was derided as being a mysogynist. Who would have thought that it was really a feminist manifesto, a call to arms against the totalitarian regime that would equate beauty with starvation dieting or that only skinny people could appreciate tennis.

Could Sir Mix-A-Lot have done the modern day equivalent of nailing his thesis to the church door? Has the revolution begun and has Sir Mix-A-Lot achieved what several hundred feminist tomes by luminous authors such as Goria Steinem & Susan Brown Miller failed to do?

Although he won't be there in a physical sense, I am sure Mr. A-Lot will look down on us at Wimbledon and surely see an audience of beautiful people at peace with their inner selves.

And Mr. Dogg's treatise espousing both the worthlessness of women and their necessity to perform acts of oral pleasure on him will someday usurp the Bible.

Don't diss it just yet, after all he managed to write an entire song about Batman.

SockMonkeyHolocaust, that was so beautiful... I almost cried while reading it.

Then again, I find it incredible how you euro mofos will glorify your fat asses even in a poetic way while talking shiat about Americans becoming fat.

/just joking. ...really.

Why do all British tennis players have names like refugees from 'Biggles Flies Undone'? I give you 'Timmy', 'Buster', 'Buzzer', 'Bunny' etc.

Chocks away Ginger.

= 10% higher seat cost.

Snort. Tim Henman, well named, as he usually ends up with egg on his face.

Difference between US and Australia, as far as I can tell from reading this article:

The Australians attribute people's fat asses expanding to no end to overindulgence in "too many servings of strawberries and cream."

Whereas our (Americans') farking first thought would be too many supersized McFries or whatever.

Dem English folk got class. Yeah.

/Broad generalization or generalization about broads?? Also I'm kidding. Well, sorta.
 
2004-06-11 07:08:10 AM
Oh yeah. SockMonkeyHolocaust, that was beautiful.

2004-06-11 07:26:30 AM
As much as I would love to be able to blame middle aged, overweight Americans for this, I think it would be slightly unfair.

Its 80 years since those seats were installed so its more likely that the increase in ass size is probably due to the increase in the average human frame since then, rather than the advent of trans Atlantic air travel. My brother lives in a house thats a few hundred years old and I have to bend right down to get in the doorway.
 
2004-06-11 07:30:25 AM
Doesn't seem that small of a seat. Bet that the newer, bigger seats will cost more to keep this change revenue neutral...
 
2004-06-11 07:33:26 AM
Wow Cormee, your brother seems a little unreasonable about the price of admission to his house.
 
2004-06-11 07:33:30 AM
Cormee

Have to agree with you on that one. Every generation seems taller and bigger then the last, I am thinking of my parents, and their parents. To my mothers mother, I would be a giant, she was only 4'11. The mother is 5'2' and I'm 5'5..ok 5'4.5 he he. Still...thats a big step in only a few years. The people who are even 4/5 years younger then me are much taller again. I have no doubt we are bigger and broader too. Ever tried on vintage clothes? I mean pre 60's vintage clothes? absolutely tiny, made me feel like a hercules, and i'm fairly small framed by todays standards.

I feel your pain. The town where I live was originally built on a hill in nine-hundred-somethingorother, and, well, some of the buildings date back to the 15th century. I'm 5'8" (what's that in metric... 173cm?) and can barely fit under the doors sometimes!
 
2004-06-11 07:35:33 AM
Cormee - what have you been told about being reasonable and fair-minded in these threads?

Exactly. Stop it right now and don't do it again.

Besides, everyone knows that the seats are being made bigger to accomodate the non-tennis playing Williams sister. Who ain't small.
 
2004-06-11 07:38:18 AM
To add to LaughingGremlin's post, like I said, I'm 5'8" tall (and a guy). Almost every male person I know is at least three inches taller than me... and I can't really say I'm short. :-/

What can I say! You were raised by penguins and I was reared by my brother!!

Meh. My family seems to be shrinking. My granddad is taller than my dad, and I'm a good 3 inches shorter than him. If I ever have kids they're gonna have ready made roles in the next series of The Borrowers.

Nothing worse than a buggering brother

THat's right, blame the donkeys.

I'm not a Euro weenie, I live in Philadelphia. Thanks for the compliment, though!
 
2004-06-11 08:44:42 AM
Yes, a whole 1.5 inches in added width. A little more than the length of the tip of my finger. HUUUUUGE.
 
2004-06-11 08:59:12 AM
binnster , LG et al

the average length of a boy child is the average between the parents' + 11CM

For Girls: -3CM

yer kids will not necessarily be taller than you...

42cm? That's spacious compared to Fenway seats.
