Luscious Llama Lip Lunacy

You know what really irks me? Botox. Some of us got MOCKED for big pouty lips as children and now the whole world wants them. Well suck it up. You weren't born with them! Well maybe YOU were, but many of these nuts weren't. And for my own part, I actually only got the nice full lower one. My upper one is normal. Boring, even.  These aren't them, by the way--I tried to take a picture of mine, but my paint software wouldn't let me crop the rest of my face.

Now I can TELL you the point of luscious lips... nice full lips are ultimately kissable. There is just a lot more there to work with. HWMNBMOTI has rather fullish lips... Oh, I know... it isn't suppose to be all the rage with men, but let me tell you, they totally work for me.

I mean sure—there are some exaggerated versions of men with full lips—Mick Jagger or Steven Tyler (both of whom really work for me, too, by the way, though I GET that most people think that is too much—but just LOOK at that dexterity!). But even if that's not your thing, look at THIS fine, full-lipped specimen. Don't you think that could add to the enjoyment there?

yeah... not so much...
But see, for WOMEN, we are so often sucked into what society wants and for women's mouths, somehow the norm has become this pouty, sultry, honed with apparent sucking skills thing. (And I gotta tell you—on that last part, lips make no difference—my friend with the highest skills on this matter has very thin lips—she just also happens to be vacuum powered and extremely open-minded... oh.... and she's been known to tie bows with her tongue...) But never mind...

But you know who REALLY has lovely lips? Llamas... They really sort of get three lips, don't they? That's a bonus.

She's lovely, isn't she?

And then this one wants a smooch!
So there is a little Friday lunacy. It is just how I roll. I wish you all a fabulous weekend of llama kissing!

So true! Llamas are adorable! I wonder when the 'Llama lip' will become the next plastic surgery fad ;)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Average lips are fine with me!

Old Kitty said...

Awwwww now that you've pointed this out, I totally see that Llama lips are just too amazing and totally NAKED!! Yay!!

Take care

Rebecka Vigus said...

Good blog. Botox really overdone.

Creepy Query Girl said...

LOL! Llamas do have funny lips! It was kind of like a dash of cold water to go from the pic above to the llama pics though! LOL

Tina said...

First of all, please enlighten me. When I see this HWMNBMOTI
at your blog, I'm lost as to who or what you're talking about. Would you be so kind as to satisfy my curiosity?
I like my lips. I think they're lagom. (That's a Swedish word - I'm giving Swedish lessons this month). I've been told they're kissable. Gotta draw the line in the sand regarding llama lips. Ain't no way I'm ever kissing a llama, no matter how talented their three lips are...

Love Llamas, but dunno about kissing them :)

Hope you’re enjoying the challenge so far!

I was born with the full, fat lips that have become so popular. There are some drawbacks. (I have to use twice as much lipstick as most people, I also have to be very careful not to smack my giant lips and startle people in the next State, etc.)

I never understood why so many people would do this to themselves voluntarily.

Hart Johnson said...

Liwi--ACK! Maybe as a tattoo... not a surgery--you'd end up spitting oats at people when you got mad! Wait...

Alex-going for the middle ground, eh?

Jenny-they ARE groovy, eh?

Rebecka-thank you!

Katie *snort* Yeah, i can do that... teehee

Tina--He Who Must not be Mentioned on the internet (my sweet baboo, or hubby, if you will)

Damyanti-oh, come on... one little smooch?

Jaybird-yeah, much harder to pull off a bold color lipstich, too--I mean sometimes, but it isn't something you do casually. Though you have a lot better coloring than me for it.

The one thing I always hear about Angelina Jolie from straight guys is that they love her lips.

Hart Johnson said...

She DOES have good lips. She has nice eyes, too. In fact she really is very pretty. A little odd, but beautiful.

Johanna Garth said...

Love those Luscious Llama Lips!

Helena said...

Vacuum powered lips plus tongue power? Well, that's something to talk about. Me, I've always noticed camel lips, maybe because some famous person once remarked that camels always look like annoyed birds. Very true, I think.

Laura said...

Ha - llama kissing!
I got called fish-lips at school because mine were 'too big'. Thank god I kinda grew into them - certainly never gonna need filler though :) Happy weekend

Kern Windwraith said...

First, just have to say that the name of your blog is ridiculously happy-making.

Now that I have that out of the way, yes, yes and yessy McYes to the botox thing. It's creepy and weird and now we have a whole whack of people parading around the planet with lips that look like they've had gerbils surgically inserted. Not pretty.

Love your wit and style--will be back for more.

i'm not a fan of plastic surgery in general... i mean, if someone needs reconstructed after an accident or has a cleft palette or something, that's one thing. but there is something very, very beautiful about aging with grace, and accepting who you are. :)

lips - llamas - lovely.
great post, yeah, I really don't understand the whole botox thing, why do people think it will work for them when it failed for oh so many before.... find a hobby people.
