The Logic of Moobs

Nobody knew what a ‘moob’ was until just recently. A ‘man boob’ is to give it its full expression. Rubens, it seems, airbrushed the moob out of history. For, if we study the paintings of Rubens, sure we see his trademark Rubenesque women dripping lard all over the shop, but take another look at the men. Muscular, sculpted, moob-less, flat-chested, at best with tits like a couple of fried eggs. (CLICK ON 'Read more' LINK, BELOW)

But now we are acquainted with the moob, we are able now to see how the logic in naming it can be further exploited. In this, the age of obesity, we see pre-adolescent boys sporting laddish bazookas, or  ‘bboobs’ – boy boobs. And, if we look hard enough we may see a rare pair of ‘fmoobs’. Fmoobs are then boobs owned by women which look more like man boobs.
