There are Tumblrs for Everything: Introducing 'The Metropolitan Museum of Butts'

Posted By on Tue, May 7, 2013 at 10:14 AM

I love novelty Tumblrs.

Actresses Without Teeth is/was spectacular (especially because it helped contribute to my not-too-shabby score last time I went pub quizzing), Fearless Editor Dan Gibson has a few he's sitting on 'til they blow up (including one dedicated to All My Children, weirdly enough) and I keep hoping that the one dedicated to the things I expect to contribute to my death might one day produce a book deal.

But we all know what the real secret to Internet fame is: butts.

That is a butt. Marble torso of a youth, Roman, Imperial period, 1st or 2nd century A.D.

The Metropolitan Museum of Butts is dedicated to showing you, the reader, a new backside every day, all from the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City — and, kindly, they feature a donation link to the Met, so you can contribute to the "care and restoration of these butts."

The Internet is weird and hilarious sometimes.
