I've often thought it might be interesting to measure the length of necks of women in working class,
middle class and upper class women's magazines.

A number of years ago I made a brief survey and this is what I found:

Upper Class Magazines: Long, graceful, swan-like necks. Think Modigliani here. Think six feet models with 4% bodyfat.

Middle Class Magazines: Ordinary length necks--like the girl next store, unless she's a supermodel.

Working Class Magazines: No necks, to speak of. The heads of women in these magazines seem to be tacked
on to their shoulders without much benefit of neck.

So "class" shows. To get ahead it seems you need a long neck!
