Camel toe


Camel toe is the phrase which describes the phenomenon pictured above, in which an outfit is too tight in an area where you really would not like it to be too tight.

I now see what you mean and agree. A terrible outfit.

I went once to a fancy dinner where a charitable couple were being honored for their contributions. And there on the wall was a larger than life portrait of them together, she wearing silk satin pants, and having a horrible case of C.T.

We were saying, "Didn't she have any girlfriends look at this? Why didn't anyone point this out to her?"

I felt so bad for her all night.

The Nicolas Cage film "The Weather Man" does one of the funniest explorations of camel toe EVER.

Men suffer from a similar and just as awkward phenomenon. It doesn't have a name yet, as far as I can tell.

Dr. Phil gets CT sometimes and it's icky. You'd think his wife, Vanity Personified, would catch it and stop him from grossing out his audience.

Actually, there is a name for the male one -- it's called a "moose knuckle." And, no, they're not any nicer to look at than the female version, thanks!
