No Butt Cams For Me — No Ifs, Ands, Or Buts

If you’re ever in Scottsdale, Arizona and feel the need to buy jeans, prepare yourself for a scary rear view:

Worried that new pair of high-fashion jeans may just make your butt look fat? Now shoppers in one upscale Scottsdale store [The Hub] can check it out for themselves before someone else makes the observation – using the Butt Cam, a camera positioned just so that’s connected to a video screen on a dressing room wall.

And if that doesn’t sound bad enough:

The setup also allows Hub employees to display views of their more confident shoppers on flat-screen TVs behind the cash registers for all to see.

This brings me to my latest limerick:

No Butt Cams For Me — No Ifs, Ands, Or Buts
By Madeleine Begun Kane

The Butt Cam sure sounds rather crass,
But it gives you a view of your ass
While you’re trying on jeans.
And you know what that means?
It should tell almost all: “Take a pass!”

    Good lord. That’s great.. for people under 22. Everyone under 22 has a great ass. But then to be perfectly fair… great or not, I really don’t want to SEE their ass.

    That’s such a dumbass idea.

  2. Just gotta love that Butt cam broadcast to the registers. It reminds me of a flight I took years ago to the Aran Islands (off the coast of Ireland). When we bought our tickets in Galway, the clerk told us we would have to be weighed in before the flight, but she assured us that the weigh in was very discreet. When we got to the airport, the scale – with a HUGE face – was right next to the check-in desk. The same butts that don’t mind being on the cam probably wouldn’t have minded the broadcast weigh in, but I sure didn’t appreciate it.
