Oh, Dov, just when we thought it couldn't be done, you find a new way to skeeve us out. Announcing American Apparel's hunt for the best butt. The way it works is you post a picture of your ass (clad in your favorite AA butt-covering), on American Apparel's website, and people all over the freakin' world look at your ass—and judge it. Niiiiiiice. Two winners receive the exalted status of American Apparel butt model, a goodie bag worth more than $300?and whatever other "perks" are associated with the title. Um, let democracy prevail? [American Apparel]
