Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Wednesday Poetry Blogging

A few days ago, one of my friends sent me the pictures from the 2010 Playboy calender.  I didn't keep them.

Playboy photography strikes me as being too glitzy.  The girls in the photos display too much technical augmentation for my taste.  IMHO, it's glamor and/or sex appeal done all wrong: au naturale but aw, unnatural.

In short, it is off-puttingly artificial, and I was underwhelmed by the overabundance.

By coincidence, that same day I received a mailing from Victoria's Secret.  They have their ways of enhancing as well, but I found their approach to be much more appealing.

The email linked to the a VS web page with this pic.  Note the text to the left.

All of which inspired this limerick.

The bra for this lovely bombshell
Enhances her natural swell.
Whatever her gifts, the bra shapes and lifts.
I prefer it to silicone gel.
