Metaphor Alert

From Ryan Sager at True/Slant
A research team out in Texas decided to tackle the concept of butterfaces through the lens of evolutionary psychology. (We have people tackling concepts through lenses today. Metaphor status: Awesome.)

I had to look up butterface to see what it meant. Huh. And there are whole websites devoted to that. Why?
I suppose it's a male thing.

I didn't know either until Insty linked over to it. I guess I'm out of the slang loop on such things.

I just loved the metaphor crunch. Another all-time fave: "It was as if the hand of God had stepped in."
