The Butt Types: a bootyful typographical project for parenthesis in different fonts

Who among us hasn't used a pair of parentheses to draw a butt?

Swedish graphic designer Viktor Hertz has taken this idea one step further with Butt Types, a visual exploration of typographical butt art using 50 different fonts, including:

Adobe Garamond Pro, American Typewriter, Arial, Big Caslon, Bodoni, Calibri, Century Gothic, Comic Sans, Chopin Script, Copperplate, Didot, DIN, Eurostile, Futura, Geneva, Georgia, Helvetica, ITC Benguiat, Joane, Klavika Bold, Lato, Mrs Eaves, Optima, Papyrus, Playfair Display, Steelfish, Times New Roman, Trajan Pro, VAG Rundschrift D and Zapfino.

Butt Types began a year ago as a series of somewhat-viral (or perhaps diarrheal?) Facebook posts; in October of 2019, he tried to launch Kickstart a limited edition Butt Types poster print…but sadly, only got about a third of the way to his funding goal.

I'm a VAG Rundschrift D butt, myself.

Hertz has also experimented with Dick Types and Pussy Types as well, and you can view his full collection of Typornography on Behance.

Queen's Brian May literally rocked his own ass off in his garden

Astrophysicist-slash-astrophysical-guitar-god Brian May posted this alarming photo on his Instagram last week:

Reality check ! For me. No - the Virus didn’t get me yet - thank God. Hope you’re all keeping extra-safe out there. A decision to relax controls doesn’t suddenly make the danger go away. But me ?? Yes, I’ve been quiet. Reason ? As well as getting over-stretched and harassed by too many demands ... I managed to rip my Gluteus Maximus to shreds in a moment of over-enthusiastic gardening. So suddenly I find myself in a hospital getting scanned to find out exactly how much I’ve actually damaged myself. Turns out I did a thorough job - this is a couple of days ago - and I won’t be able to walk for a while ... or sleep, without a lot of assistance, because the pain is relentless. So, folks ... I need to go dark for a while, getting some complete rest, at home. Please, please don’t send me sympathy - I just need some healing silence for a while. I’ll be back - but I need the complete break. OK ? Thanks. Take care out there. Bri

Butt-lifting jeans a success

Butt-lifting jeans are a success in Colombia, reports the BBC, and the innovation is heading north: "The decorated butt-lifter has become the archetypical Colombian jean, a product that has reached markets outside the country."

"It is exclusively Colombian," says a proud Mr Rivera.

The name says it all - the design has a few tricks to shape the buttocks of the wearer.

There are at least three secrets that make the butt-lifters work, and they can be seen extensively in the Gran San shopping centre:

A high waistband that covers the stomach

More cloth in the buttocks than other jeans

Pinched in one, two or three places above the back pockets or under the waistband, to shape the excess cloth

"It has been perfected over time so now the competition is to see who can lift more," says Mr Rivera.

I can't wait to buy my first pair of butt-lifting jeans. Recommend me a brand of butt-lifting jeans. Read the rest

The new face of Pokémon is butts

Historically, the Pokémon franchise has focused its merchandising efforts on the parts of Pokémon characters that were not their butts. But that's about to change, thanks to a new wave of toys, charms and other assorted swag from Japan that will finally allow you to catch them all. All of the butts.

There are so many, many ways that you can purchase these Pokémon butts: as cushions, magnets, folders, bags, coasters, coffee cups, and even tape.

Nor are you restricted from merely admiring the butts of Pokemon; you can also turn your own butt into a Pokémon with the help of boxer briefs for men and women.

The line will go on sale at the Pokémon Amazon.jp store on October 10. But be ready: Rocketnews24 (which also has an item-by-item breakdown in English) suggests that the line is "probably going to sell out pretty fast."
