The "Try to Sit Like Impossible Mary Jane" Spiderman Contest

I am totally dying over this thread in which people are mocking the drawing of Spiderman's Mary Jane. (Which, huh, I did not know Mary Jane was supposed to look like… that.) I believe it all started here, four days ago: "Pro tip for comic book artists: No human being alive sits like that as a way of relaxing. This is beyond ridiculous." I'm trying right now!

Where did Mary Jane get those from? John Romita must be spinning in his grave (I assume he's dead by now)

@LondonLee More to the point, who stole her intestinal tract? That waist looks dangerous.

oxla (#12,069)

@LondonLee John Romita Jr. resembles this statement, sir.

LondonLee (#922)

His dad was better. And Steve Ditko couldn't draw girls.

This is what happens when nerds think Megan Fox is hot.

I'd rather just Photoshop in the Twister mat.

Teacup aside, dude in the lower right corner could also be impersonating a begging dog.

oxla (#12,069)

while we're at it: the fuck is with the gigantic 4' x 4' portrait of MJ and Peter Parker above the couch. Protip#2: No one likes you, and 12" of black matting is a POOR CHOICE (girl).

@oxla Seriously, is Peter wearing a Member's Only jacket in that picture?

jfruh (#713)

Sorry for the blog-pimping, but: after this they could try picking up the newspaper.

Clearly, Mary Jane was bitten by a radioactive yoga instructor.

@brilliantmistake Wrong comic book universe, but CRISIS ON INFINITE CHAKRAS

Also, check out the kerning in the headline of the Bugle lying out on the coffee table! That's almost as painful.

@jfruh This is what EXTENDED FONTS are for, JJJ!

See, this is why I have trouble taking this seriously as apparently a "sexist" objection. How come nobody notices the impossibly chiseled grown man dressed in a skintight leather suit performing ridiculous calisthenics *RIGHT OVER HER SHOULDER*?

But no, seriously, the way she's sitting is an outrage against women everywhere.

Some may be concerned with Mary Jane's contorted posture and impossible Spider Rack. But the real crime is the violence against architectural standards. A brick high-rise? Really Marvel? In this day and age??

Maybe you should try finding a WOMAN with a SIMILAR BODY instead of a bunch of fugly, obese comic book dorks to see how hard it would be to sit like Mary Jane. Here in NYC (where people actually do things like WALK and where people don't eat Wendy's for breakfast, lunch, and dinner), I'd venture to say that you could probably find numerous women that would be able to sit like this. I personally know a few.

camelface (#4,600)

@DJ Monster Jam Exactly! You are so smart and hot

brad (#1,678)

@DJ Monster Jam – wait, people "walk" in NYC? well, this middle american mind is so blown that i'm a gonna wheel my ass down to the wendy's for some some fried.

ok, this hurts.

tasam23565 (#58,492)

well i agree too

I just wish I could find a woman who is that flexible!

Mr. B (#10,093)

Whoa, what? We broke 50k and went right up to almost 60k over one three-day weekend? Is there a spambot zombie apocalypse going on out there? I'm finally starting to feel some cachet in my extremely low five-digit rank.

Hmm, the spammers can't possibly account for all that; they only number in the dozens. (NUKING THEM NOW!!!)

@Choire Sicha – So the stories are true: You really are everywhere!

tasam46747 (#60,593)

very funny!

I like squishing my moobs together after a set of butterfly presses.

Lol!! I actually do sit that way sometimes and don't even notice til my friends say "Ewww how can you sit like that? It looks so uncomfortable? Doesn't it hurt?" I have sat in that manner since I was a kid. Usually on the floor, bed or a couch, or in the grass outside like at a concert.
