Original Message Every single time I go to an art museum I see these well-done paintings by the masters and some do portray very obese women in nature settings.

Then I have to endure some docent who raps on forever about how in the old days men loved fat women, and being fat was the sign of beauty.

I believe that these paintings are actually the world's first cartoons, and are meant to bring humor and irony into the dreadful medieval existence.

Who's with me?
