"...Its not a Beauty Contest..."
« on: February 23, 2006, 05:04:15 AM »

Am I the only one who thinks this is a total burn[/size] Whenever Ian says that it isn't a Beauty contest, then basically says that we have all kinds of women- big or little, young or old, (reading between the lines here)beautys or not.....

I know its not his intention, but still- BURN![/size]

I think he's trying to say that some of the ugly people on the shrine could possibly take offense to it, however, I only speak English so I'm not completely sure.

As I understand it, the shrine has a dual purpose. The college age hotties to attract the male listeners, and the demographic hotties to attract program directors & point out the wide range of advertising possibilities for a local station. I am well aware into which category I fit.

Yes, there is probably some room for improvement in the way Ian phrases his shrine promos; but they are nowhere near as bad as having you point it out in full color. Thank you so much for the reminder Jiperly.

I think the "not a beauty contest" is fine too.

Normally doesn't occur to me.... it's the list of opposites, combined with "ladies of all shapes & sizes"....
Comment back was to Jiperly, not Ian & Manwich. Maybe Jiperly was offended over a potential offense to shriners, or maybe he's a dork.

Well, it's basically a euphamism for "fat and ugly" but you know...I don't really pay much attention to it anymore.  Because well, I never saw the point of making fun of a fat person for being fat.  Newsflash:  THEY KNOW THEY'RE FAT.  But I guess I can see where Jiperly was coming from with that post, easily.

Well thank you, love.   :D

On a side note, I keep wondering how he got the word "BURN" to look like that.  Quite obnoxious.   :P

Isn't your karma immune to slapping, what with the groovy swirling colors in your sig?

The Latter.

Honestly, I didn't find this website because of the female listeners. And if I did find it because of the Shrine of Female Listeners, I wouldn't have taken the message as seriously. I mean, its just chicks. If I was looking for pictures of chicks, thats why I have porno in my bookmarks- I'm here for the intelligent debate and analyses.

I can see the purpose for the Shrine- to promote females to show up at the forum- but its still kinda lame
