I changed my mind. This is no longer my slice of the American Dream pie. It is now just a place for me to bitch.

News of the really fucking stupid


The Government will now be Regulating Attractiveness

The Advertising Standards Authority has ordered alcoholic drink companies to use uglier men in their advertising campaigns. The rationale being that the stupid women will look at these ads and think that drinking will get them attractive men. "The ASA believes "balding" and "paunchy" men would be less likely to encourage women to drink to achieve social success." "The industry regulator instructed firms: "We would advise that the man in the picture should be unattractive - ie overweight, middle-aged, balding etc." "If the man was clearly unattractive, we think that this implication would be removed from the ad."

Couple questions:

First, what the fuck?

Second, what about men? There is no mention of using fat, bald women in these ads. Is the ASA not concerned about our health?

Third, why is there an entire "Authority" working on putting ugly people in ads, but I have yet to receive one welfare check?

Just wanted to say with all sincerity, that this is what is wrong with America. I'm not completely upset with the existence of an Advertising Standards Authority, but I am fairly pissed that they spend their time ORDERING beer advertisers to make their actors and models uglier. I wouldn't even be so pissed if they just suggested that they do this. But they fucking ordered it. You sons of bitches. Fuck you. Who do you think you are?
