Go Ahead And Have The Fish & Chips: British Gents Prefer A Size 12

07.31.08 by Sarah | 6 Comments | Digg This

UK’s Fabulous Mag has released the results of their “Fabulous Body Survey 2008″. And while I’ll admit it’s not the CDC, it seems to confirm what we already know: to wit, that the fashion industry and the various women’s magazine publishers are a bunch of sadistic assholes.

While the average woman is a size 16 trying to starve herself into half that, the average man’s ideal is a size 12. What does all this mean? I don’t know, but I’m going to go think about it over a full-fat latte and an apple turnover.
