Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

I think it’s unavoidable: Body art that’s located on a woman’s breast(s) is rightly dubbed a tittoo.

I mean, there’s even an equation behind it:

Tit + tattoo = tittoo.

So that makes it nice and logical, I guess.

Despite my appreciation for women’s breasts, this strategic placement doesn’t alter my general distaste for tattoos. I mean, it’s not like I need an extra excuse for sneaking a peek…

Or, to paraphrase the slogan of Showtime pay-cable rival HBO: It’s not TV, it’s “The Best Shit on Television”.

The ad features characters from shows like “Weeds” and “Californication” uttering the expletive seven times, plus a song from the band Centralia that uses it five times. Showtime also posted the video — with a warning that it was “intended for a mature audience” — on YouTube, where it has been viewed more than 25,000 times.

“We didn’t think twice about putting it on our air,” Robert Greenblatt, the president for entertainment at Showtime, told Variety, which printed the slogan unblushingly. A spokesman said the network had no further comment on the promotion, which will be shown through September.

Gets right down to it, doesn’t it? Pardon the punnery, but I’d have to say that Showtime’s hoping that this shit hits with their fans. Ba-dum-dum.

I would have embedded the YouTubed promo spot here, except that, well, frankly — I think the soundtrack is shitty. Click through if you wanna hear/watch it.
