This week we have two picks from the reader mailbag.

But of course the larger problem is that these massive leggings look exactly like this guy's lower body.

If I ever looked down and saw what appeared to be all the flesh from my torso dripping down my legs like this I would high-tail it to the dermatologist. Stat.
