Nuke School Flashback

My previous post about "clamp(ing) down severely on... clothing of women" reminded me that the SI swimsuit issue is coming out this week. In honor of this, I present a picture that all you nukes out there probably figured you'd never see again:

Yep, it's the "fission yield curve", known back in the day as the "Dolly Parton curve", and before that as the "Mae West curve". I'm sure that now they call it something different, like the "Jessica Simpson curve". Actually, since there are now persons of gender going to Nuke School, maybe they don't give it any nickname at all.

On a personal note, I'd like to point out that, although I subscribe to Sports Illustrated, I haven't seen the swimsuit issue at all the last two years. I think my oldest son "confiscates" it to protect my moral compass...

Quoting Bubblehead: "...persons of gender..."

ahem, er. ...Dunno, but it was just so funny to read the PC term in a post about (essentially) winnebagoes.

Well, now that Persyns of Gender are attending nuke school, it just may be that they will have their secret name for it...the Dual Ended D*ldo or some such idiocy.

Looks more like a mammogram to me.
