Great Racks: The Oldest Great Rack Known to Man. Still in fashion after +/- 24,000 years


This statue, shown here approximately life size, is the Venus of Willendorf, "also known as the Woman of Willendorf, is an 11cm (4.3 in) high statuette of a female figure estimated to have been made between 22,000 and 21,000 BCE." Wikipedia

Now you might think this is but the expression of a primitive tribe that focused only on the most arresting and important secondary sex characteristics of the female. And you might be right. You might also think that women have "come a long way, baby," towards putting that kind of blatant appeal to the most direct desires of men. And you would most assuredly be wrong.


Reproduced not at all life sized

Your Say

Does the statue have a bag over her head?

It's only 4 " high. You pervert.

The first image suggests that Rosie O'Donnell would have been considered a hottie in 22,000 BCE. I really don't want to contemplate that other than to be thankful that Karma has placed me is an age when the thought of sex with Rosie O induces a severe gag reflex in all, regardless of gender, religious affiliation, or national origin.

The second image reminds me that the front tires on my truck are over inflated.

Too much of a good thing. But I am a woman, what the heck do I know?

Does that come with a Government mandated label warning about possible death by smothering?

You know, I suspect the Willendorf Venus wasn't a prehistoric pin up. Maybe Thog was just fooling around one day with clay or he thought a statue of Fat Mrs. Oog next door was funny.
