What's with the lobes?

So the whole ear-thing started a long time ago when Keith and I had a lengthy discussion about earlobes. My whole life I've always thought that attached earlobes were the more coveted type of lobe. I thought attached had more longevity because as you got older they didn't get all danglely. However, Keith brought up an opposing argument and said that attached earlobes make your face sag down as you get older and it's better to just have saggy earlobes instead of saggy earlobes and a saggy face. We thought that the best way to settle this disagreement would be to take a little survey.

Here are some things to consider before voting.

Figure 1: The David



I think the picture speaks for itself. This sculpture is know for its timeless beauty and golden proportions. I'm pretty sure Michelangelo knew what he was doing when he made the earlobes attached.

Figure 2: Girl with a Pearl Earring



With earrings like this you need an attached earlobe for support!

What do you think?

If you want to go with the flow, then detached is the thing to envy. My biology book says that it is dominant!

I totally recommend sewing your detached lobes right back onto your head where they belong. Peer pressure...just do it. :o)

Thanks for the clarification, now I will be able to submit a more-educated vote.

Attached!!! Keith- Natalie is always right! You should know that by now!

Definitely attached. Especially for women. Because of all the dangely earings we wear we are destined to have saggy earlobes and detached earlobes would only add to that problem.

Ok, so I never even paid attention to what type of earlobes I had until I read this post. And since, I now know that I have detached earlobes I'm going to have to say that they are the best.

Okay so I say detached, just cause all of us Morgans are blessed with them, however I never found out what the verdict of the survey was...so, what was it??
