Which shape are you fatsos?
"For years, conventional wisdom — and some research — held that the pear was better than the apple, as least for body shape and health.“We never believed that,” said Dr. Soma Sen.“Having too much weight on any part of your body is certainly not good.”
Part of her charge as a cardiologist at Park Nicollet Medical Center is coaching patients as they struggle to cut fat that has accumulated around the abdomen (the apple shape), or on the buttocks and thighs (the pear).
A study last month confirmed what Sen and many experts had surmised: Far from being benign or even offering some protection against diabetes, heart disease and strokes, the gluteal fat of a pear-shaped body generates the same damaging proteins produced by belly fat.
The findings help “dispel the myth that gluteal fat is innocent,” said the study’s lead author, Ishwarlal Jiadal of the University of California, Davis."

Slew has no mirrors in his trailer. He can't stand the sight of himself.
