It’s only mid-November, but here at Chivomengro we have egos bigger than the Republican party’s midterm post-coital bliss. We feel comfortable telling the internet and America what to do. And, for the sake of the internet, we’d like to go ahead and christen this past year the year of the derriere – the bootylicious symbol of twerking, mooning, shakin’ it, and getting all up in it.
With the recent rise in popularity of the ass – from Nicki Minaj’s ‘Anaconda’ video to Meghan Trainor’s ‘bass’ to Kim Kardashian’s Paper cover – the booty has finally come into it’s own. Stirring up debate about feminist power, body image, race, gender, and the importance of waxing and wiping, the year of the ass has brought the aft to the fore like never before.
So celebrate – as we are here at Chivomengro – 2014 as the Year of the Ass. Find a mirror, and do that awkward look-over-the-shoulder-thing where you try to see your ass as others do, and take a selfie for posterity. Because you deserve it.
