Incredible!

Interesting site, thanks.

choochoo said...

Yikes. Gotta love greed and sheer insensitivity. LOL

furiousBall said...

although it is insensitive. i am, for one, pro-blowjobs

Urban Animal said...

Actually the stupidity of it made me smile a little bit, then I noticed a formatting error/typo... lol (my training)

Suzan Buckner said...

LOL @ furiousball. The ad got a laugh out of me. I thought it was quite clever..LOL

XUP said...

To be fair, most ads featuring men these days always make them look like hopeless buffoons. So, in summary, women are mindless sex toys and men are just mindless.

Ian Lidster said...

Actually, I think it's quite funny. Sexist, but funny. That almost forgives it.

Big Brother said...

At least it's funny. Sexist but a clever word play.

citizen of the world said...

I have to say, I don't think it is particularly clever or funny. Unless 8th grade humor is clever and funny.

It's rare, but it's happened: I'm speechless.

Jazz said...

Dumdad - yep the site is very interesting.

Choochoo - yeah.... gotta.

Fuball - of course you are.

Animal - yeah that typo jumped out at me too. Similar training.

Suzan - You can always count on Furiousball for a pithy comment

XUP - yep, that pretty much sums it up.

Ian and BB - Funny in an adolescent boy kind of way.

Citizen - you gotta remember who this is geared to...

Susan and Sandra - It's pretty much all been said, eh?

Jocelyn - Wow, I never thought I'd see the day.

It's sexist... but the woman in the ad knows what she likes, and it isn't the audience, so it's kind of an insult to their customer, too. If this ad applies to you, then you must be sexually unappealing, and don't have a hope in hell with a woman like this. It re-enforces the stereotype of the computer nerd as sexually-desperate and virginal. Sad. Pathetic. Lonely.

Hageltoast said...

lol, i think it's kinda fun,but also agree with Kimber that it's slightly offensive to customers.
