First, a Facebook page in honor of her bottom and now a holiday! Pippa Middleton‘s behind has been the center of much hype since she served as her sister Kate Middleton‘s maid of honor during her wedding to Prince William on April 29 at Westminster Abbey. Now, those who take delight in Pippa’s bum have taken their infatuation a step further, naming Sept. 9 a day to celebrate Pippa’s royal rear end.
Sept. 9, 2011, is the Friday after Pippa’s 28th birthday, and thanks to Facebook user and Pippa lover Jimmy Wevell, it will now be known as “The Pippa Middleton Ass Appreciation Day.”
Wevell, who created the event page on Facebook, described the day as a time when Pippa will join the “buttocks hall of fame.”
He writes on Facebook: “I watched the royal wedding and the only thing that was entertaining me was Pippa’s ass, I have to thank her for it.
As of now, 180 people are “attending” the day.
Pippa catapulted to superstardom after turning heads in a figure-hugging, ivory Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown at the April 29 Royal Wedding.
A number of groups on the social networking site have been created in honor of her, including The Pippa Middleton Ass Appreciation Society, which currently has more than 200,000 members.
The New York Times has even dubbed her a “global phenomenon.”
We doubt Pippa expected all this attention.
