According to Irish researchers standard size needles used to inject drugs in the 'ol gluteus maximus just aren't hitting the mark. They say super-sized buttocks need super-sized needles to reach the muscles below the layers of ass fat.
Standard-sized needles failed to reach the buttock muscle in 23 out of 25 women whose rears were examined after what was supposed to be an intramuscular injection of a drug.
Two-thirds of the 50 patients in the study did not receive the full dosage of the drug, which instead lodged in the fat tissue of their buttocks, researchers from The Adelaide and Meath Hospital in Dublin said in a presentation to the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America.
Damn, I hate needles. Note to self: Keep weight off.
