What's wrong with these people?
« on: December 19, 2011, 12:58:54 PM »
Received this in an email, to my work address, from I company that I occasionally buy clothes from:
 


My immediate reaction:
  • I can't believe companies actually send this sort of thing out in this day and age
  • That blonde is clearly no operator1
  • I bet this would be right up Kev's dark, dank street

How would you have reacted?

What's wrong with her mouth?  Is she trying to make a duckface and say "Durrrrrrr..." at the same time? :eh:

From a military perspective, the UK Tactical catalogue turns up in the crew room all the time and is often used to buy all those little bits and bobs that you think you'll need when you deploy to sunnier climbs...things like boots that stay in one piece and cold weather clothing that doesn't get issued because 'it isn't the right time of year'...even if it is -6degrees at night.

For that reason, I can understand the advert and approve of it because, they get sent all over the place and this sort of thing would cheer the troops up no matter where they are.

...and this day and age?  I think that the women out there fully understand what this sort of advert is all about, raise their eyes to the heavens and understand that it is the simple things in life that make us poor blokes happy...and just let us get on with our mediocre little lives, while they rule the world ;) .

I saw the pic and (after tutting and rolling my eyes at the finger on the trigger; Blondes, hey? :roll:) wondered if it was worth making a diemaco when I've already done an M16 and currently have an M4 on the go.

The employer in me would be thinking  "why is he using his works email address to do his online shopping, dont they have a specific internet usage policy"

I am aware that makes me appear very bad....

The part of me that is Kevs wife however would be thinking, they should have used brunettes it would have looked smarter.

the bitch in me thinks if they had used a brunette they would have  had a greater chance of selling things to people as everyone knows blondes wouldnt know how to point a gun let alone what equipment to buy.............

I saw the pic and (after tutting and rolling my eyes at the finger on the trigger; Blondes, hey? :roll:).
Why do you think they took the picture at that angle?  To hide the orange muzzle cap of course.  Everyone knows spray tans and hair extensions mean fake guns (both kinds) :D

hair extensions

I look at those and think 'lampreys'.  If your look reminds someone of a scibor sculpt, are you doing it right?

Seriously, though; all the obvious fakery turns me off, with both the effect and - for better or worse - the kind of person she is.  (The kind who thinks Jordan's a genius and a role-model?)  Wash off all the snakebite leather; scrape off the half-inch of clingfilm-gloss baby-pink lippy; give her eyebrows comprised of hair instead of pencil; pull off the rat-tails; make her adopt an expression that indicates at least an average IQ... would she look more or less dodgy than she does now?

The brunette (not that it's a matter of hair colour) looks more natural, and more attractive, IMO.
Not trying to white knight anyone or anything, by the way; just flummoxed as to why the plastic tangerine look is supposed to be sexy.

The blonde one didn't even register, to be honest.  I think it is probably best that she was wearing glasses that cover most of her face...she is definitely a little on the plastic side...

...but it is all horses for courses and that sort of thing floats a lot of people's boats so who are we to judge?

I did say 'for better or worse', and for a split-second I thought it was Jordan.  And yeah, I have this ability to weigh up things and make choices.  Been able to do it for years. ;)

Smashing picture if you ask me. The poor Brunette forgot to put her trousers on too! Wish I knew what pubs girls like these drank in, because there's  no one like them around here?
