Like Vogue, the New York Times has apparently caught booty fever. They think booty is their ally. But, while they merely adapted to booty fever, we were born in it. Molded by it.


Again, we've always appreciated booty. We've been in booty's corner for as long as booty existed. To us, there's no better place to be than booty's corner. Because we love booty. So much so that here's 25 more booties deserving of all-time recognition on top of last week's list.

25. Whoever would have been working the door at "Ray's Boom Boom Room"

24. Catya Washington

23. Eve. (Not "Eve the rapper." But "Eve the first woman on Earth." Although there's no visual proof of Eve's booty, we know Adam started reciting scripture the first time he saw her naked, so she must have been holding.)

22. That woman who read the original list, shared it on Facebook, and had at least seventeen different people say "You should have been on this list too!"

21. Kim Fields

20. Everyone in that Nelly Miss Applebottom Contest show that aired on VH1 a decade ago and hasn't been seen on TV or online anywhere since

16. That woman on Penn Ave last year who your girl caught you staring at and started to get mad until she looked herself, said "Damn!" aloud, and started gawking with you


15. Miss Twerksum

14. That woman who was working at Banana Republic in the summer of 2005 that made you make so many trips to the store that you ended up getting a Banana Republic card that messed up your credit, ultimately teaching you big booties will mess up your credit


13. Maliah Michel
