Mao Asada’s Earlobes Freak Me Out
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.
