When having the Ralph Kramden look is suddenly de rigeur.
Fatso, slob, beer belly, paunch, pot belly these are all okay to have now. In case you were wondering how to get through the rest of summer the NYT’s has being noticing an interesting trend out there in hipster ville (the undisputed champion of contrarian national antics).
At one point it is used to be okay and even to be flaunted if you had a six pack ( in Madonna’s case it’s an eight pack) , lean muscle to fat ratio and all the other accoutrement s that helped get you laid and a reality TV show contract (yippee@!)
Before you go scoffing your face off just bear in mind although it’s suddenly cool to have that paunch going to work for you this summer care need to be shown how much paunch you gents have.
We advise just enough to be noticeable but not enough not to get you laid.
As for you girls, you know the score- keep dieting and get back on the treadmill. Now!
When what happens in Brooklyn suddenly becomes a national observation sport.
