The original, attributed to Dorothy Parker, is "Men don't make passes at
girls who wear glasses."
(The other one was heard here as "The angle of the dangle is proportional
to the heat of the meat.")
As for the "ass" saying, these days *Family Feud* routinely asks survey
questions turning on the attractiveness of female anatomy, and "big booty"
routinely turns up as a desirable trait. (They also do questions about the
attractiveness of male anatomy, where a small one is generally preferred.)
