There is a lot of stigma around stomach rolls. Probably because we don't really see them anywhere, well, other than on ourselves of course...
Whatever. I'm going on holiday in a couple of weeks and I'm bored of feeling ashamed of my roly-poly tummy. So I've put together a comprehensive and not even slightly scientific list of reasons as to why it's okay that your stomach rolls.
And this is what I came up with:
All the best things roll:
Because everyone loves cheese, and even if you don't like it, the notion of a whole wheel of the stuff is pretty cool.
As bad for the environment as they are, we wouldn't get around very well without them.
All sorts of balls really, except for those attached to humans. Football, Rugby, Golf, Ping Pong, none of it would be possible without these rolly bastards.
The ultimate hangover cure.
When made into Maki, which is the best kind anyway.
Without which, pastry wouldn't be a thing. And pastry is the best.
What else are you supposed to do in a power cut?
Despite the inevitable bruises, they're just too fun.
Cakes. We need eggs for cakes.
Granted they like to do it in mud and fox poo, it's pretty adorable.
The invention that really sets us apart from the monkeys.
Bananas don't, but meh. The others do and they're fab.
Before iPhones, these made the playground great.
So there you have it, show your stomach with pride; safe in the knowledge that all the best things roll..
