‘Ain’t no beauty queens in this locality …’

Great minds think alike, and so when word got out that “Fat Bottomed Girls” is omitted from an updated version of Queen’s Greatest Hits, Ed Driscoll asked if “Sir-Mix-a-Lot [will] be able to escape the PC police?”

I like big butts and I cannot lie.
You other brothers can’t deny,
When a girl walks in
With an itty-bitty waist
And a round thing in your face
. . .

Yeah, you know what I mean. “My homeboys tried to warn me,” etc. When the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, most conservatives made fun of Bill Clinton for hitting on a fat girl, but I was like, “Hmmm.” As a fellow Southerner, I could relate. Down home, some of us ol’ boys don’t mind a little cushion for the pushin’, IYKWIMAITYD.

You can keep your gaunt European supermodels, give me a gal who looks like she knows how to cook some biscuits and gravy. So what’s wrong with these “woke” corporate types taking over the music business and cancelling one of the most fun songs from the classic rock era?

Are you gonna take me home tonight?
Oh, down beside that red firelight?
Are you gonna let it all hang out?
Fat bottomed girls,
You make the rocking world go ’round!

It makes no sense, when the same “woke” brigades are trying to push feminist “body positivity” messages, that they’d cancel “Fat Bottomed Girls.” I reckon the idea is that, anything that men enjoy is inherently wrong, so that a song featuring men celebrating the “greatest treasure” of corpulent women must be bad. Well, honey, don’t you worry about it. Just have another plate of biscuits and gravy . . .
