    Seriously.
    Google any form of "silicone cutlet" or "silicone chicken cutlet" and you get a metric ton of fake breast enhancer gadgets.

    Evidently a lot of them are clear now but they used to be all "flesh toned" and looked almost exactly like a boneless skinless chicken boob made out of soft squishy plastic.

    They are mandatory equipment for every Hooter's girl. Just like the pantyhose that are worn under the shorts.

      Never owned a pair... I dated a Hooter's girl.

            Dating that Hooter's girl did have uses other than the obvious...

            The obvious being free wings and beer of course.

              I've only ever been to Hooters once, I think it was in Sarrasota, Florida. I'd just turned 21 and was home on leave after a tour in Northern Ireland and my parents and little bro were going on holiday so I joined them. My bro and knew what hooters was but the folks had no idea

                • My world view has been shattered here at MDA. I have learned that a lot of men with big muscles aren't strong, just vain and that there are way more fake boobs out there than I thought were possible. All my life I've just gone with exactly what I was given. No surgery, no cutlets in my bra, no hair color, no waxing, no botox. No wonder I've struggled.

                  Now give it to me straight: those women bench pressing 100+lbs and deadlifting 300+lbs are on steroids, right?

                  • Not necesarrily, but they've most likely been working hard on those lifts for many years.

Are men afraid to get bulky, lol?
                      To be honest...many are just lazy. :-(

                      • Being "strong" is much about skill, leverage, muscle coordination, arching the back, using the legs when pressing, and in general; learning all the tricks in the book about how to get the weight up! Yes, it’s also about growing some relevant muscle(and fat!) to support the lift. Personally I got my worldview shattered already at a young age when I learned how to bypass strength test! Wrapping up knees, squatting in jeans with long bicycle pants under, benching with more than two shirts etc. And the coaches nodded and agreed upon the impressive “progression”! Coaches in general love to see that the numbers goes up...

                          Didn't mean to single out the women only as the men are also equally well over a healthy weight. In 1980 the average american man weighed 175 lbs., since then the average height has increased little if any but today the average american man weighs a not too flattering 195 lbs.

                          Sometimes it gets old after a while having to hear over and over how you are "skinny, underweight and unhealthy" by people who look like anything but the epitome of fitness and also having people constantly commenting on and critiquing your diet. Personally I'm also a little bit tired of hearing about how I'm so lucky because I'm "naturally skinny". No my weight and body fat is where it is because I watch my diet, bust my ass working out and have been working out regularly since I was 13. If I didn't work out/watch my diet I would be 30lbs. heavier, my waist line would be 6 inches bigger and nobody would be telling me how I'm "lucky to be naturally skinny".

                          My wife finally put a stop to the constant comments about her weight/diet at work when she finally said "I didn't know that my diet and weight were going to be the subject of the day. Maybe we should discuss your weight and diet for a change."

                            Hey, I also work hard. If I didn't work out and diet, I'd be 100 lbs fatter. Just because people call you "naturally skinny" doesn't make it OK to refer to people like me as "hog fat". Call me, unnaturally fat, discuss my diet, accuse me of laziness, but don't refer to me as a farm animal. It's degrading and dehumanizing.

                            Now give it to me straight: those women bench pressing 100+lbs and deadlifting 300+lbs are on steroids, right?
                            I work out with many women that bench over 100lbs, including one who I think is fairly new to lifting and 50. I doubt any of them use steroids.

                              Exactly, we eat them!

                              On a lighter note, humans in modern cities are a lot like farm animals. They do and behave like them for all practical purposes except that they dont get slaughtered and eaten.

                                If they're at the gym on a regular basis and on the treadmill, it's not laziness, it's misconception. They're following CW on what's healthful. Myths of muscles turning to sagging fat when you're to old to lift for the hours and hours a day it takes to keep the muscle dye hard. If they only knew what lifts to do and how to do them properly. It only takes an hour or less, 2-3 times a week. Knowing that, who wouldn't just do it?
