Mao Asada’s Earlobes Freak Me Out

with one comment

All Japan Figure Skating Championship - Day 3

Japanese figure skater Mao Asada is a gifted athlete. On the ice, she moves beautifully.

But I’m freaked out by her earlobes. They’re so thick, so fleshy, so … chewy-looking. They’re as big as cups and look like they’d catch water if she walked outside in the rain.

You know who has those same ears? Buddha. Seriously. Every depiction of Buddha has long earlobes.

Big earlobes are actually a good thing in Asian culture, signifying luck or prosperity or a big heart — at least that’s what I picked up growing up Asian.

Mao Asada’s earlobes still freak me out, though.

  1. Why does the size of anyone’s ear lobes freak you out.Are you so disconnected to the more serious troubles in the world today that this has become an issue to you worth posting on the internet.
    You have a valuable tool at your finger tips.For now you should spend more time reading than typing.
