The Rumpology Hoax (The Matrix Dictionary)
A hoax of exposure created by the philosopher Robert T. Carroll.
Rumpology, also known as butt reading, is the art of reading the lines, crevices, dimples, and folds of the buttocks to divine the butt owner's character and get a glimpse of what lies ahead by analyzing what trails behind.
According to Jacqueline Stallone - (read here, you might think it is a joke, but this part of the Hoax is true) - a foremost American rumpologist (and praised by her famous son), rump reading is an art that was practiced in ancient Babylon, India, Greece, and Rome. She claims that the ancient Greeks thought the butt was the key to health and fidelity. She says the Romans used butt prints the way some people use graphology today: to determine potential talents and future success.
The Rumpology Hoax (or Rumpology for Dummies) is written as a recipe on how you as a therapist (in just about anything) can create success. Carroll of course uses, as example, one of the most stupid New Age therapies to date, in order to show how easy it is to fool people and get success.
