Smokin’ reader DW pointed out this picture and wrote:

“Your muffin-topped yinzers.”

Man, my crystal ball o’ magic was right on. Right. On.

Which is why when I asked, “Ball o’ magic, will the Pirates play .500 ball this season as my cute little bones are predicting to me they will?” and it just started laughing its magic ass off, I got a little worried.

P.S. Do you think Wikipedia will let me put that picture as the new official photo for the “muffin top” entry?

P.S. Dos. Not to steal a page from Dave Barry, but wouldn’t The Muffin Tops make a great name for a band?

    The Muffin Tops would only make a good name for a band if they were a group of oh-so-adorable tweens playing oh-so-adorable pop music with lyrics that are laced with just enough sexuality to ooze into our kids’ consciousness without us parents knowing it, or realizing it immediately.

    Or else The Muffin Tops could be a Doo Wop band. Four guys, singing a capella, their hair greased back, faces clean shaven, and decked out in black Dockers and varsity sweaters.

    Or maybe they’d be an alternative band and wear John Lennon glasses and let their name speak of the irony of life ’cause they’d all be skinny from their vegan diets.

    For the ultimate in irony, The Muffin Tops could be a death metal band. ‘Nuff said.

    So yeah, I’d say you’re onto something there.
