Jowling


This is a picture of my nephew Alec. He is jowling. Don't feel bad. I had never heard of it either. My sister sent me this picture because she was so proud that he made it onto the jowlers webite as one of the top jowlers.

According to Terry, true jowling takes great skill and finesse. You must relax your face muscles as much as possible, let your jaw go slack and shake like hell. She adds, from personal experience, a word of caution to lady jowlers, "Remove earrings before attempting to jowl, especially the large one or ones with pointy things. You could put out an eye or send one flying and put out someone else's eye. Yeah, it hurts like hell!"

I had no idea this was going on. I can't imagine how they can turn their heads that fast. Below is a picture of Alec when he isn't jowling.

Admit it. You're trying to do it right now, aren't you?

No. My Mom told me if I did stuff like that my face would freeze in that position. And Moms never lie.

Old Horsetail - Well, hardly ever.

LOL! That's a scream but I am quite sure it would hurt my neck.

He looks like those people from The Twilight Zone, the one where everybody is jowly and pig-nosed, except for a small number of attractive people who are condemned as freaks. When he’s jowling, I mean.

I am rooting for a lovah man with good cocoa for you. I woulda come myself, but you might want to follow me and my 'HER' may create such a jowl, she may break all records. In the meantime keep practising so when Mr.cocoa comes calling you'll be ready

I'm scared---very scared---that I could easily win first prize and not even know I was competing.

All I can think when I see that is TMJ/TMD!

Neal said...

Is there a link to other jowling pictures?

Gry said...

I admit - I was totally trying to do it..

Neal said...

Duh, for some reason I didn't notice the link you posted the first time I read it. Thanks.

Laurie said...

Sophmom - I couldn't even do it fast enough to hurt my neck.

Brian - I love the Twilight Zone.

Amlicar - You think he'll like a jowler?

Popeye - Did you take pictures!?

Lorna - HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Susan - Can you imagine the medical problems these kids are going to have in a couple of years?

Gry - How'd you do?

Neal - Was that a wild website or what?
