Any guy who has forgotten to get their sweetie something for Valentine’s Day can tell you that they haven’t forgotten it since and they have either the keyed car or missing fingers to prove it. If they knew what that giant heart that says “Be mine” is really based on, they’d probably be dead.
Psychologist Galdino Pranzarone believes that the loving shape of the heart was created by the Greeks who were inspired by the shapely female bottom. They even created a temple called Kallipygos to worship the giant booty that translated into “Goddess with the Beautiful Buttocks.” Sounds like a sound religion to me. If L. Ron Hubbard can make up his own faith, why can’t Sir-Mix-a-Lot do the same?
