Now that's realistic

I opened up the Sunday paper this morning to find the above picture advertising swimwear in a store circular. The lovely girl on the far right is supposed to represent "plus" sizes. Apparently she wasn't plus enough, because someone felt compelled to quite badly digitally alter her lower extremities to the point that she appears to be developing elephantiasis.

Out of proportion, as in size, shape, or amount.
