Da butt?

A professor of psychology has postulated that the symbol we associate with the heart and Valentine's Day is actually a representation of the female behind.

The, er, money quote:
"The Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, was beautiful all over, but was unique
in that her buttocks were especially beautiful," he explained. "Her shapely
rounded hemispheres were so appreciated by the Greeks that they built a special
temple Aphrodite Kallipygos, which literally meant, 'Goddess with the Beautiful
Buttocks.' This was probably the only religious building in the world that was
dedicated to buttock worship."

How cool is that?
