From the Library of Congress (via Weetabix) comes this poster, advertising a “human curiosities” sideshow from the 1914 Vermont State Fair: Ruth the Acrobat.
Not only is the image interesting, so are the (many many) comments, ranging from the neutral:
it looks like she doesnt have bones
To the naughty:
This would give some interesting options in the bedroom. ;)
To the predictable:
This must have been before Atkins, then.
Where did that cheese burger go?!
To the somewhat inexplicable.
Of course the fat chick has to have ballet flats!! YUCKNESS!!!!
If someone could explain the ballet flats thing, that would be helpful. And speaking of interesting images, I also loved this Adipositivity swimming pool image (nudity, potentially NSFW) from a couple of days ago. I’m sad that their website doesn’t have prints for sale!
