Nature Has Three Nipples

How common is it to have three nipples? Well apparently MOTHER NATURE HERSELF has three.

Of course, I'm only going by Wiki-freaking-pedia here, who have reproduced this image of The Temple of Nature:

The image itself is the frontispiece for Erasmus Darwin's book "The Temple of Nature". (This book, published in 1803, predates his more famous grandson's book on evolution by at least 57 years. Check it here.

At any rate, Mother Nature with a superfluous nipple should be a lesson to us all. Three and proud, people, three and proud.

Les Trois Mamelons (or Mamelles)

Aah, Mauritius. Beautiful island nation almost 1000 km off the coast of Madagascar. One day, I hope to visit. Apparently the view from the volcanic crater Trou aux Cerfs is spectacular.

To wit, I'm talking about its view the "Let Trois Mamelons" or what we refer to in English as "The Three Nipples."

Yup, three perky little mountains that remain topless. As far as I know. I mean, I suppose someone could have climbed them and carefully place a bra on the precise apex of the peak, for the sake of modesty, but why would they do that? I mean, it looks like a nice sunny place for tanning.
