"Oh! Sorry! Dior! You asked me..."

"... and all I could talk about is armpit vaginas."

Shouldn't you insist on "armpit vulvae?"(I don't know latin. Had to look up the plural.)

Ann Althouse said...

No. Don't insist, not if you're a man correcting a woman.

Say "I love your metonymy" and move on.

In the interest of pubic service:


me·ton·y·my
[mi-ton-uh-mee] Show IPA
noun Rhetoric .
a figure of speech that consists of the use of the name of one object or concept for that of another to which it is related, or of which it is a part, as “scepter” for “sovereignty,” or “the bottle” for “strong drink,” or “count heads (or noses)” for “count people.”

It's a cry for breast attention.

pm317 said...

Althouse is keeping a breast of it all.

The beautiful can get away with so much more than the proles.

Tank said...

Lawrence has some of the same mannerisms on camera as Althouse.

That's a compliment (in case there's any ambiguity).

Rose said...

Sorry, but those two are a waste of air.

I think Ms. Lawrence is following in the footsteps of Cameron Diaz, who also likes to do wacky things in public, on camera, on any carpet that even remotely looks red. This is a career move for her; shows she can do comedy, as well as shooting arrows at people in action movies.

"there is going to be some hair on it"

"or not. I can't keep up with the fashions anymore."

Jennifer can do no wrong in my opinion. She is endlessly entertaining and disarmingly charming for such a youngster. Her comments backstage after having tripped at the Oscars were a publicist's dream. You can't coach that.

As for talent, Katniss is as far as you can get from a Long Island housewife.

I knew James Bond was a crock, but Sean Connery made it credible. Ditto with Jennifer Lawrence and Hunger Games.

Two sticks talkin "arm-pit fat" and "arm pit vagina"! How very charming, indeed!

Bob R said...

I wrote "you" with the thought that Althouse should be the one doing the insisting, not me. But the "I love your metonymy" tip is a good one.

CatherineM said...

See, I mentioned this in a post a week or so ago, but I can't remember the subject. Basically, these days if you say vagina, you are cool! It says, hey, I am not stick in the mud! I talk about my vagina!

Hence, Jennifer Lawrence is cool.

If she had a talking vagina, that would be cooler!

No mention yet of Alien Nation? Disappointed.

The Godfather said...

Can someone explain to me how fat armpits (which she doesn't seem to have, but maybe the picture isn't good enough -- pass that) become armpit vagina? I have seen many armpits and several vaginas, and I don't make the connection.

Reminds me of the old joke:

"Have you gotten any on the side lately?"

"No, I haven't gotten any in so long I didn't know they'd moved it!"

Yeah, wasn't funny then either.

Al Johnson said...

Bless you, Ann, for using a word that's been part of my vocabulary for decades-- in which time I don't believe I've ever seen it in print. An arcane term that deserves to become more popular--

Biff said...

I remember when everything wasn't either a vagina or a penis. Then I took a college lit class. I fell asleep there, too.

kristinintexas said...

I like Jennifer Lawrence, but I'm disappointed that when someone asks about her gorgeous dress all she can do is draw attention to her non-existent armpit fat. I didn't expect that from her.

I wonder when the charm will run out.
