Veronique De Cock explained (in English)

· Salon Bloggers, Weblog Concepts

Thanks to our feedback loop, Michel Vuijlsteke has cleared up the feeding frenzy around Ms. De Cock and her now-famous natural breasts (go directly to his entry to follow the many hyperlinked keywords)

Veronique De Cock is a 24 year old model, former Miss Belgium (1995), sometime singer and TV presenter, organiser of Miss Antwerp beauty pageants…. has nice breasts…. a rumour going around that she has implants…. denies the rumour…. ever more insistent cries that she has … ever more categorical denials that she did nothing of the sort…. decided to have her breasts x-rayed … put the nasty rumour to bed … then … irritating interview. No matter what Veronique said, … kept going on about x-rays not proving anything … that if they were saline implants they wouldn’t show up on the x-rays, and that she couldn’t really prove those x-rays were of her chest anyway, etc. etc. … Veronique was livid…. went to a competing TV programme … took the entire crew to a clinic … had her bosom ultrasounded…. no implants of any kind in Veronique De Cock breasts, saline or otherwise…. then suddenly last week … photos of Veronique De Cock without bra, naked … in monokini … on the beach … on the Internet…. the entire Belgian internet world … the papers … radio programmes … legal action against the phtotographer and any sites that hosted the pictures.

And also by then, I was about the only site on the Internet in Dutch that rated highly on Google (.be and .com) and that mentioned Vernoique De Cock, St. Tropez, her breasts, the fact that they were naked, and that I had the photos in my posession.

And the hits started rolling in.

Michel links to the pictures too, you fleshhounds, you!
For myself, I’m glad I understand what this memespike is all about, I guess.
His previous entry appears to be a notice of my link to him from yesterday, but Babelfish doesn’t speak Dutch. I wish I did. During a brief two weeks in the Netherlands I got the hang of pronunciation, especially all the diphthongs. (A lot of sounds familiar from German spelled differently.) You have to love a language with the word “blerg” in it.
Oh, and looking at the beach pix, I can understand the incredulity of Veronique’s critics—a touch of plasticity to her high, round breasts, which just happen to resemble a good boob job, small waist, and so on. I guess that skepticism is the price she pays for nature giving her something usually only created in the lab these days Sounds like she’s made a career at least partly on her looks, so I imagine the give and take has balanced out.
