If you haven't seen It's a Wonderful Life, I'm sure you've seen at least one holiday TV episode mimicking it's storyline (however poorly). You want to know why it's copied so much? It's because it is the greatest (holiday?) film ever made. Here's why.

Muffin top is the bit of blubbery overhang on a woman's mid-riff. Even it is barely noticeable, the female mind expands it exponentially to a monster truck tire. On this natural and normal belt, sadly, self-esteem dangles in despair. Is it possible to reclaim the muffin top as something positive?
