Gotta Match?

Recently I was taking a friend's mother to the doctor when I passed a bill board displayed proudly along the road where many doctors' offices and the local hospital are located. This bill board caused me to ask two questions to no one in particular; First.."Why hasn't someone burned this sucker to the ground?" and secondly "I bet they could never advertise this product to a male customer!" The bill board in question had a picture of a shapely Grecian goddess (armless I think) and asked the question "Unhappy with your body?" and then answered it's own stupid question with "Try breast augmentation!" Let me tell you if I had even a second to spare...I would have dialed that number to have a very detailed conversation with the unscrupulous plastic brained surgeon that put that bill board up. There isn't a male alive that would buy into that bill board so...ladies "Why do we?" Can you imagine a bill board with a naked Roman guy asking "Unhappy with your body?" and then answering "Try "whatever" augmentation!" I don't know why some of us feel this way and I do acknowledge that I too struggle with the changes in my body but surgery isn't going to fix what is broken with me or you and I don't think we should allow these so called Doctors to imply that it will. I am sick of seeing tabloids that criticize women's bodies and magazines that label some women "unsexy". I won't buy any of those magazines and I am weary of the "Brittany's and Paris'" of this world being built up only to tear them down because it sells magazines. Ladies, please if you want to feel better about your body...augment your brain. If that bill board mysteriously burns to the ground..."it wasn't me!"

God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.
Genesis 1:31

AMEN!!!! I don't think there is anything else in the world that bothers me more in our society. And I must say, Mom, as a fan of Ms. Spears...I will have to correct the spelling of her name: "Britney." :) Love ya!

Oh Lord. And now because of this post, you have an Ad for plastic surgery financing...not exactly what you were hoping for I'm sure.

I know...I can't stand it!
Sorry about Britney! But, as a fan of Madonna if I used her I would have shown my age!
