Broadly Defined

Jen commented derisively on my use of the word "broad" earlier on the blog this morning.

I fear she has the wrong idea. So let me take a minute to explain.

I like mid-20th century words.

I'm an old radio fan, remember?

So when I use the word "broad," I use it as defined along these lines:

A term originated in the 1930's meaning woman; derived from the fact that the most defining characteristic of all females are their hips, which are proportionally wider than the hips of their male counterparts;

"Look at those broads."


It is a word you use to describe a female.Photobucket

Used a lot during the 1930's -



Now it is not as popular-

--because most guys aren't respectable anymore.

I like to think of myself as one of the exceptions.Photobucket

Also, if you consult your Urban Dictionary, you'll notice that those which I've quoted are two of the three most generally approved uses of the term. The third being:

Less respectable than lady but much more respectable than bitch.

...i.e., "a great broad."

I hope this makes everything clear.

This reminds me of an old joke...

Man: Do you know the difference between making love, and making up a salad?

Woman: No.

Man: In that case, meet me in the kitchen in 20 minutes.


If I tell you what I'm thinking, I'll be thrown in jail for the rest of my life

Excuse me, miss. I'd like to ask if you'd mind backing that thing up.

Sonia Braga is a lovely woman

An internationally acclaimed actress, and a role model for women as they age

(at least, she would be mine if I were one).

All of this is true.

Also, she is one hot-looking broad.

You'd think she could afford to buy a complete dress

I have a feeling I shouldn't say much here...

But this is a picture of Jessica Biel and Scarlett Johansson as teenaged models.

One thing I would like to add, though: I think this: --is an especially nice looking photo of the adult Ms. Biel's face, which I haven't always thought of as her best feature.

What's your point?

Per Think Progress: Sarah Palin says that she "likes the sound" of "President Palin."

Personally, I like the sound of "the suspect Miss Peet then ordered Mr. Varkentine, at gunpoint, to apply scented oils and suntan lotion to herself and Miss Biel,


and then to service them both."

I mean, if we're just talking about the way things sound around here...

Things to be thankful for, 2009 (part two of three)

The other two parts are posted in my other blogs.

As with last year, my use of the word "things" in this context should not be construed as meaning that I think of women as things.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

And now,

in no particular order:

Have I talked enough about how much I love Lisa Cuddy?

More reasons.

It would probably be wise not to be drinking anything when you watch this

...because it's going to end up spit out all over your screen and/or keyboard.

It's a little promo for Britney's upcoming Rolling Stone cover. Now...that's all good. I enjoy seeing Britney grinding and bouncing (even if it is to her own music) as much as the next man.

However, somebody probably should've asked RS director of photography Jodi Peckman if she really wanted to be quoted on video tape saying that Britney was "up there" with Madonna...and John Lennon.

(I mean, do I even have to get into the levels on which that's a half-assed idea?)

I'm not sure these outtakes from her recent NYT photoshoot are helping my case

Y'know...I've spent a lot of time in my blogs arguing that Megan Fox is not, as many seem to feel, simply a dumb whore...

Keeley Hazell is to glorious breasts what Patrick McGoohan and George Markstein were to the 1967 Prisoner.

Once again, Emmy Rossum is clearly trying to draw my fire

The lovely young Emmy, sadly no longer single, goes so far as to suck a sucker to try to shake that "too cute to be sexy" thing.

Granted it works better than the candy cane.

God loves the '80s

He must, otherwise, why would he allow the unknown-in-this-country-but-lovely-to-look-at Ms. Cole to pose for so many '80s retro photos for her new calendar?
