"Muffin Top" Now Considered Technical Term
American English, ever evolving, now apparently includes "muffin top" in its professional, technical vocabulary to describe the unflattering bunches of fat that appear on women's waists when they wear tight-belted, low jeans. Watching the evening news, Todd came across a report on plastic surgery in which a newscaster remarked, in all earnestness: "And THIS woman had her muffin top removed." I'm not sure whether I find the mutilation of the woman or the language more upsetting.
