Italian Researchers Believe Chubby Models Will Make Women Fat

Oh for goodness sakes!

Two researchers from Italy's University of Bologna have made a ground breaking discovery that will alter life as we know it: plus-size or "chubby" models will make women fat.

Dr. Davide Dragoneand Dr. Luca Savorelli explain:

"To promote chubby fashion models when obesity is one of the major problems of industrialised countries seems to be a paradox."

Their "research" also found using non size 0 models on the catwalk will "alter the ideal weights of a wide part of the female population".

OK, so let us get this straight. It's the plus-size models that are altering ideal weight as opposed to the unhealthy and scary thin models?

That's gotta be the most absurd thing we've heard in a long time.

What a waste of time and money.

researchers looking for woman who was mona lisa model

So…the Mona Lisa ISN'T a portrait of Leonardo da Vinci's "male lover"???

On Tuesday, Italian researchers began the process of locating the remains of Lisa Gherardini, a woman who MAY have been the model for the Mona Lisa.

According to a recently found death certificate, Gherardini died on July 15, 1542 and was buried in the Convent of St. Ursula in central Florence.

Art Historian Silvano Vinceti, who's heading up this project, says that they'll begin digging at the convent later this month.

Exciting stuff! Would def be cool if they were able to figure out the identity of the Mona Lisa once and for all.

Do U think Lisa Gherardini could be the Mona Lisa? Or do U still think it's Leo's "male lover"?
