Okay, I wonder about some strange things sometimes so this occurred to me a couple of days ago when looking at pictures of statues... How, or rather why, did human buttocks evolve? Apes don't have them, so what was the evolutionary advantage to our ancestors of being able to sit comfortably? How did pre-historic man with the big booty benefit? Was a Neanderthal Jennifer Lopez just more attractive to the opposite sex? That doesn't seem all that likely, I imagine our attraction to that part of the anatomy evolved after the anatomy itself did. I haven't been able to come up with a plausible explanation. So my question remains--why the butt?
