Look at those pretty ladies watching the show, each one of them with their heads held high and their chests pushed out. They look really like proud graceful swans. In this photo, however you look at it, I'm the pheasant to their swans, it's so depressing.

Ha ha ha, it's not that bad. Those other people are all flat-chested and bony fashionistas. Whereas you're a chick with raging sex appeal. Each of you have your advantages, you're both good!

Is that a compliment? How is it that I'm not any happier after hearing it?
