Skinny Legs





























I think it is fascinating how much thin legs can support, particularly when speaking of insects and birds.

Note: My legs will NOT be featured in this post. They would belong in a THIIIIIIICK LEGS post!

omfg! I love you so much for this.
I'm obsessed with super skinny legs.
I can't even enjoy this post that much bc I am bombarded by work. I will revisit and continue drooling over knobby knees and stick bugs. ;)

That second photo is mightily disturbing! Is that some fashion shoot? Can't be. Those women are obviously unwell.

Penny said...

My boyfriend has pretty skinny legs.Although he's skinny in his entirety,but even though his legs are skinny,they are still sexy as all hell!lol

Hanako66 said...

eek!

a few of these are going to haunt my dreams!

Tikimama said...

Greyhounds! Beautiful. My family adopted a retired racer - great, great dog.

2nd photo - anorexia? Please tell me that they are not being paid to model, because that is just wrong.

When you do the thick legs post, I'll submit mine. Thick ankles too. Ugh. (My word verification is "whzucent" - what?)

Diane said...

the girls in the 2nd photo look HORRIBLE!

my man likes me thick legs!! yey!!! we should all do a post and show off our legs!!!!!!

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Um, that second one is creepy.

Char said...

yeesch!!! I like nice thick calf muscles and cut legs.

Alina said...

Eeeew....Those girls in the bikini's are terrifying!

diane said...

I used to have a neighbor who rescued greyhounds, lovely girl. I wish someone would rescue the girls in the second photo.

Zoƫ said...

i think the 2nd photo is photoshopped because the model is karolina kournikova who's actually considered fat these days..she did have a skinny period but never THAT skinny

creative kerfuffle said...

ok--if this were jeopardy alex would say subject is---things ck does not have---answer--skinny legs! lol
but, it is amazing what those skinny legs can support.

Posh Adornment said...

My legs also do not belong in this photos. I gave the term thunder thighs new meaning. LOL yes those girls look positively sick and I can't imagine how anyone would consider the one on the left attactive. I've seen better looking corpses.

Hey girl you never got back to me on the photo on top.

Kellie said...

I wish I could feature my legs in a skinny legs post! More like fat knees leading straight down to fat ankles. Cankles!!! Oh well. And that 2nd photo gross. I hope it's not real. Ick...

Lynn said...

Personally I like the kid with the grenade.

Raina said...

I was having the VERY SAME CONVERSATION with my husband this past weekend looking at some babbeh deerz at a wildlife park.

miriam said...

gahd, i love the chessboard pants, but not as much as i love you!

Gary Heller said...

Ha, DG I knew this would be good. Love Greyhounds. That second image is. . .not good. Not into that, hope they don't think they look good like that.
I saw some real skinny legs yesterday in Brooklyn with a mini skirt up to her apple bottom. I thought the legs were way too skinny, but sure had everyone staring.

ASSHOLE BOYFRIEND said...

I was just at the Beverly Center and saw a gaggle of sissy boys with skinny legs in tight black girly jeans, what a bunch of fags.

Dooder City said...

Ok, when I was fucked in the head I used to want super skinny legs and then I realized that skinny legs are not very cool. I like my legs:) I know girls that love the 'gap' between models legs but it just makes me sick. We need to promote health people! I hope you don't mind me ranting.

Elizabeth Marie said...

OMG. WTF. This is not okay! Well, I mean the insects or whatever, fine. But legs like that are not cute on humans.

the little emo boy is cute...looks like he needs to get roughed up in a bar fight though.

Chessa! said...

omg...I can't even be snarky bc I'm so deeply disturbed by that woman in the second photo. I would say "give her a sandwich immediately!" but not even that...okay, so I can be a lil snarky but it's actually not funny.

I've always thought I have fat knees. I think I finally stopped caring...at long last in my 30s...but I didn't wear shorts for years!

The Cottage Cheese said...

Please, somebody force-feed that girl in the second photo a milkshake! She disturbs me!

Although, I really like the other photos. I wish I had skinny legs. (But not too skinny)

me melodia said...

I think you opened a can of "lets discuss how eating disorders are wrong" worms.
Yea, no crap. We all know its unhealthy but looking at these fiercely skinny creepy legs are pretty awesome.

(i'm in a mood today)

clorivak said...

bahaha...oh melods, how i heart thee.

This was excellent,mr burns style. I used to have chicken legs in junior high, whiter than white to top it off...and knobby beyond belief...I luckily grew into them.

This post totally cracked me up...its so random,I love random such as this..which is why I love droll so very much.

TERI REES WANG said...

That shower scene is frightening!..

is that or is that not, super model Karolina Kurkova ..?

Milly said...

the 2nd pic of the models...is sccaaarrrryyyyy!

Ailurophile said...

Great assortment of pictures! I find those models' legs a bit creepy too though. I used to have skinny arms and legs too when I was a kid btw!

Love your pretty blog :)

Pyzahn said...

You are too funny. You should have a job as a social commentator for some web buzz site. I'll be reference for you.

Uh, I have skinny legs at the bottom half, top not so much. Skinny all over is better.

down and out chic said...

eeewwwwie on that skinny girl. ok, you hold her down i'll shove a giant cheeseburger in her mouth because holy bajeezus she's going to die.

mylittlebecky said...

the basket ball player is the best. hilarious :)

Diana said...

eeek, i am grateful for my thick legs and childbearing hips when i see photos like this!

thereddeer said...

Nasty - those girls look awful!

carly said...

thick legs are where it's at girl.

*sneaks under blanket because she can't believe she just woop wooped her thick legs*

Amy said...

That girl makes me heart my thighs...
Thank you for doing the impossible!!!

Dan W Johnson said...

The second pic is grim.

That's bizarre, I just started a job for these people and they have a Rat Terrier puppy exactly like the one you posted. I'd never even seen nor heard of one till today...weird.

Gabby said...

I'm not gonna do the eating disorder talk...it IS amazing that those teeny tiny legs can carry all that weight without shattering. Craziness.

Kristin said...

That is some craziness!

Lily G. said...

wow, look at all these skinny legs! Some of them look freaky!

E said...

Yeah because you're not a freak of nature like some of these! It's good to have meat on your bones!!

Tiffany said...

heheh, I didn't know what to expect when I saw the title of the post but it was quite literal, those ARE all skinny legs! :)

Bon Don said...

The picture with the little boy is funny & cute, look at the face he's making!! :) aww

Gabbi said...

This post hits a little close to home... I had the knobbiest knees as a kid (it was embarrassing). Now they're sort of on the thicker side but I'm happy about it, I'll take thick over knobby anytime!

Lianne said...

I had a pet praying mantis as a kid - well for one summer. Great pics.

alissa said...

ugh that second photo! nelly

ill join you in the thick leg post...

gangsta bride said...

im multitasking right now. i'mwatching the basketball finals (i don't like basketball, ugh boys) and reading your blog and i just realized how much kobe bryant looks like a greyhound.

one little simitopian said...

Holy crap! Icky and homorous and fascinating all at the same time!
I HATE my legs! Even when they are slim, they just never look toned, and I hate my knees, and my lack of calf muscle :(
The only time I ever wear anything short is when I'm fit, and only then when my legs are clad in slimming black stockings!!!!!

Andhari said...

The girls in second pictures aren't photoshopped? I think it's impossible for anyone to be that thin without you know, be dead.

You know who got hot thin legs? Alessandra Ambrossio. :D

Carlotta said...

I want a flamingo a real one!! love this post it's true so may animals and insects have so skinny and tiny legs , just like some models!!btw I love longs beautiful legs but not too skinny!

Anya said...

Sooooooooooo many thin things LOL
Lovely shots,
I like it all :)))

The Haute-Shopper said...

Hey, some of those animals and insects are cheating... they have at least 4 skinny legs if not more! It's no wonder they can support their own body weight ;-) Some of the skinny people scare me, especially the girls in the second pic.

b is for brown said...

add me to the thick legs post too, please.

erin@designcrisis said...

After seeing the anorexic legs, I am glad my own pair of gams would not make the cut for this post. GROSS.

Keeley said...

Haha, as soon as I saw those girls in the bikinis I wanted to start throwing cheeseburgers at them. And then I saw Down and out Chics comment and shoving them down there throat might be more effective!

DGL (Droll Girl for Life) you always take my brain to places I've never even thought about... I don't know if I should thank your or not ;)

Iva said...

wow. the girls in the shower scene were freakishly disturbing. I think I saw on some blog that yesterday or the day before was Donuts Day, and in honor of fried dough day Kripsy Kreme and Dunkin Donuts were giving out free donuts...I hope that all of the people pictured in this post made an appearance at each krispy kreme in a 300 mile radius.

Underfunded Heiress said...

Those are some skinny legs. Those models-really?-how do they stay so thin? Their too skinny anyways!

With all the skinny jeans that young guys wear now, sometimes their legs are sooo skinny it's strange to see!

GUGAW said...

please tell me the second one is photoshopped......
