And our word for the day is...

bakku-shan: noun; a Japanese word meaning a beautiful woman... as long as she's viewed from behind

Usage examples:

This man is dating a bakku-shan.

Amy Winehouse will never be a bakku-shan.

We gotta hand it to the Japanese. They have a word for everything. As they say, 75% of the world's crazy s--t come from the Japanese.

This made me laugh! Thank you so much for this post. I'm going to use this word for like ever now.

Don't forget that a "Monet" is someone who looks great from afar, but is scary up close!! It's not an official term, but it's still fun.

there's an equivalent term in tagalog and it's "talikogenic" - people who only look good when seen from the back.
