Usain Bolt, he of the most confident smile at the Rio Olympics and three new gold medals, reportedly kept up his winning streak this week.
According to The Sun Bolt invited some fellow partiers, female, to his London hotel room where he threw together an impromptu medal ceremony, complete with podiums upon which the women were awarded Bolt’s genuine Olympian prizes for exposing their breasts.
Competition was not stiff seeing as the performances were similar and Bolt had nothing but gold on him to give.
At least it’s more fun than racing Woody Allen.
And in other tits-forward news, another university study was published this week. The study, conducted by researchers at the University of Tennessee, found that women who work in “breastaurants”—Hooters, Tilted Kilt, Twin Peaks, et cetera—are more likely to be unhappy than women who work at....other dining establishments.
The New York Times’ “Women in the World” vertical summarized the findings of the study:
“By and large, the researchers found, the more workers’ bodies and sexuality were put on display — employers mandating wardrobes that draw attention to women’s physical and sexual attributes — the less happy the women were with their jobs. Some of the so-called breastaurants go further than demanding employees wear uniforms that sexualize — they even order them to maintain the body weight recorded at the time of their hiring and subject women to sexually-objectifying promotions, like wet T-shirt contests. All in all, it’s a recipe for sadness, especially for those waitresses who told researchers that in addition to some of the more predictably downtrodden aspects of the job, they also found themselves stalked, sexually harassed and being propositioned to provide sexual favors.”
