I got this in my email from my uncle who lives in Australia. "After a short stay in America, David returns to Italy". You know what's coming before you even open the picture. Apparently these are the jokes they make down under.


The image was originally made from an advertising campaign created for the German Olympic Sport Committee.

  • It's having a crack at the U.S not David or his descendants Orel ... why is everyone on tender hooks these days? I am an Aussie and it should be directed at us as well because we are a nation of Fatties as well ... myself included... but I am going to WW to do something about it.

  • These beauty ideals are not unreachable. It is just that there are certain people that don't have the genes to reach them no matter what they do. But the beauty is all arround, hidden behind bad habits, lack of culture and lazziness. You'd be surprised how much a healty diet and regular sports can do for your "beauty".

  • Christ is a descendant of David if some moronic humorist do not know and it's disgusting unless it:s how one perceives him to be.

  • No. The 'beauty ideals' in the media are unrealistic, but only in the ubiquity and uniformity of individuals attractiveness- it provides little reference to variation. There is nothing unrealistic about David's physique and, as an isolated image of an individual, it provides no comment on an ideal for a society. Also, I'm not sure it's wrong to have unreachable ideals. It probably is wrong, however, that beauty is given the importance that it is. That said, there's no excuse for being a fatty.

  • At least the fat David statue frees us from the unreachable 'beauty ideals' dictated by the original statue. Similar to the Photoshop Beauty ideals projected in magazines, commercials and billboards today, in their time the ancient Greeks must have felt the pressure of the unrealistic beauty ideals promoted by their media. No? - See also: https://nextnature.net/?p=2227
