hat’s funny about having large breasts or a big behind?
I honestly can’t say I know the answer to that, but apparently, in professional tennis, a popular court-side slap-stick comedy routine is to stuff towels into one’s shirt and shorts or skirt to look like Serena Williams.
A disturbing USA Today article hipped me to the joke today, saying:
To all that, I say, “WTF?”
Serena doesn’t appear to be offended. And good for her.
Hummmmm do they make Brazilian bikinis for ummm well….. Me???

But I really wouldn’t try this joke on another sister, including myself. I think your wig would get snatched immediately.
When I see this, what I see is Hottentot Venus and what I hear is the myriad humiliating public comments I’ve received about my own body from perfect strangers. Lighten up, you say? Oh, how I wish I could.
Take my advice: don’t try this one at the company picnic. The fallout won’t be nice.
