Don't pass on the pizza—'dad bod' is suddenly sexy

Well, this is good news. A recent article by a female college students sings the praises of the "Dad Bod" and just about everyone here at qualifies. Who knew a little extra flab could be so sexy? That's the question from Milwaukee Journal Sentinel opinion writer Jim Stingl…and we agree.

Stingl adds the social media viral article entitled "Why girls love the dad bod," is causing a sensation, and by sensation I mean some people are talking about it online and on TV. According to the piece, "The dad bod is a nice balance between a beer gut and working out. The dad bod says, 'I go to the gym occasionally, but I also drink heavily on the weekends and enjoy eating eight slices of pizza at a time.' It's not an overweight guy, but it isn't one with washboard abs, either," Clemson University sophomore Mackenzie Pearson wrote for a site called The Odyssey.

Read why any physique that allows for regular consumption of pizza is an awesome thing.
