Takin’ It To The Tweets: Is Serena Williams Conceding That She’s Got A Big Butt?

At least that is what I initially thought she was doing with the following tweet from yesterday:

“Can’t wear skinny jeans cause my ….. don’t fit” #federer

But then your Friendly Neighborhood Blogger Man did some interwebs research and discovered that instead, Miss Williams was giving props to Roger Federer by alluding to a Jay-Z lyric in “Swagga Like Us” where the rapper says, “Can’t wear skinny jeans cause my knots don’t fit,” knots of course meaning “wads of cash” in hip hop lingo (I’m down, I think). To be honest, I’m all kinds of confused by this tweet. For one thing, Federer lost to Rafael Nadal in the French Open finals yesterday so shouldn’t the hashtag be “#nadal” anyway? Secondly, maybe Williams is subtlety acknowledging that she is keenly aware of the sizable proportions of her back end, something she has freely admitted to in the past on more than one occasion?

Actually, to be completely up front with everyone, the only reason I took the time to address Williams’ rather uninteresting tweet was because it reminded me of a line from Pee Wee’s Big Adventure when P.W. is talking to his new friend Simone and says, “Everybody I know has got a big ‘But’…”

C’mon, Serena, let’s talk about your big butt. But instead of “but” with one t, we’re going with two t’s on this one, of course.

Man, that’s a long way to go for an older than hell Pee Wee Herman reference. Jeez.
