"Beauty has three nipples"

Okay, seriously, I have to write a new post just to get that foot off the first fold of the page. I have a feather at my desk and I just keep tickling it.

In other superfluous nipple news, here's a photograph in an exhibition by Joel-Peter Witkin. It's titled "Beauty Has Three Nipples."

Yes it does, Joel.

No, I don't get a commission. But I should.

I don't like it. It looks like a zit. And Scaramanga was an appalling blackguard who murdered his concubine.

Oh sure, you say it looks like a zit... I bet you say that every time you open a Playboy.

Is that what you say during Mardi Gras? "Show me your zits!"


And it was intolerant nipple-haters like you who forced Scaramanga to become the heartless killer he was. He was probably studying to become a cancer-curing priest and about to donate his vast fortune to orphans when the taunts and jeers finally turned his heart hard and his soul black.

It's all in the subtext.

Personally, I think of Scaramanga as a Christ-like figure, with his three nipples representing the holy trinity.

I just discovered my 3rd nipple, [it's not in any weird place, just under and slightly to the right of my left nipple] but, I don't know how it's something to be proud of,
I am proud of many things, I'm an athiest [in the bible belt], a bi-sexual, and "goth", all of which I'm proud of, and scream from the rooftops, but I just can't imagine showing off my third nipple.

Any suggestions?

Mr Dread Pirate

Great blog... unoriginal comment ends.

However, I am the rpoud owner of four nipples and guess what? I'm making a film for British TV about them. I could use your expertise. Email me at
if you have time.
