Tibial pursuit

Eventually, Joe Tex had to admit it: “Shut up, fool! I don’t want no woman with no skinny legs.”

He is not alone:

Skinny calves are trouble. There’s very little you can do to exert yourself, that doesn’t have something to do with the calf area. When a woman has PVC pipe calves it means she’s spending a lot of time sitting on the couch, watching teevee, and it’s probably not good teevee either. Reality teevee crap, maybe some home-shopping network, and tons and tons of “Lifetime” and “Oxygen Network” programming. Ordering her boyfriend to go out and bring her things. And probably owns a tiny dog. A really loud, annoying one. That she carries in a purse. My son brings home a prospective daughter-in-law for me and she doesn’t have calves, he & I are going to go off and have some serious conversations about things.

I dunno. Doesn’t sitting on the couch watching teevee usually widen body parts?

    Hey, I’ll take anything that speaks positively of larger calves. (It’s true. You can’t do much to either bulk them up if they’re too thin, or skinnify them down if they’re bigger because of the presence of muscle.)

    I was this close to posting the photo of mine – see what you’re doing? Provocateur.

    Keep in mind that whole eye-of-the-beholder routine.
