Putin is seeing vaginas in onions? Dude...you need to get laid...I feel sorry for you. I know it is *extremely* painful to see you communist ideal recognize the wonderful thing that is called capitalism, but...
Wait... I'm confused. How is it bourgeois? Burger King is hyper affordable compared to Wendy's. On par with McD and Arby's and their 2 for $3 deals are better than McD and comparable to Arby's 2 for and 3 for deals. 5 guys is bourgeois, yes. Wendy's is where fast food is concerned, but not Burger King.
Did you bother to watch the ad? It's clear vaginal imagery. Are you pretending like commercials do not insert sexual imagery in random objects?
I did not have consumer cost in mind when I spoke of it being bourgeois. Burger King is an infamous multi-national corporation. Its existence in foreign countries speaks to capital's penetration of those countries. All fast food companies treat their farm laborers like slaves. I cannot think of a single major fast food chain which hasn't been subject to a boycott based on labor practices.
Maybe we should pass some kind of law that prohibits farmers from growing vagina-shaped onions. That would probably help. Then we could set up some kind of governmental agency to regulate everything. Those two things would just about do the trick I think. What should we call the agency I wonder?
Lol, my bad. Ok let me get back to something you said:
"I'm not complaining about the onion or vaginal imagery, generally. That part just stood out for being more unusual than the average ad."
So, let me get this straight. It's not onions you object to and it's not vaginas. You also see nothing unusual in a guy making a mask out of a hamburger patty or in the juxtoposition of an innocent child eating a burger while sexualized women get BK tattoos nearby. No, it's the combination of onions & vaginas that really made you post his thread.
I just want to make sure I understand. And really, I appreciate the fascinating glimpse into your mind. In some other threads I didn't fully understand where you were coming from. Now I think things are a little more clear.
Is anyone else having a problem editing their profile, like the quotes section and the website parts specifically? I've tried a few different times and I have gotten no error message, it just doesn't update it...
Was running through some moves on Realpolitik. Why is a fleet in GoB allowed to support a fleet from Norway to St. Pete(NC)? The GoB fleet doesnt touch the North Coast. Is there a different reason for why this is allowed?
Hi, Sorry to everyone in the Second Series of my informal gunboat games but could everyone please vote cancel? As per the discussion led by Babak and ulcabb in threadID=803223, it has been decided that all the games must be cancelled and the tournament restarted.
Sorry about this inconvenience. Thank you for your continued understanding through President Eden and Mr. Crispy's replacements.
First Drugs...Then Terror...Now We Have A War On...Christmas??? (Really???)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tks1vqfvO9I&feature=related Jon Stewart--as usual, very funny, very on-point...10/10. Bill O's response: "Well obviously Mr. Stewart is going to Hell..." ...0, fail. But besides all that--does anyone here actually buy this "War on Xmas?" I mean...really? As Stewart says in the vid..."We can't win!"
To Celebrate The End of the Semester...Abortions! Atheists! Heaven! OH MY!
Sorry, I just had to share this...amazing response to that assertion by the Christian fellow... And you know, I've actually wondered about that before, what you do about aborted babies if you're Christian...Dante sticks them in Hell--albeit not to badly--but still...if you agree with the black gentleman...well...how do you justify opposing abortion on PURELY THEOLOGICAL GROUNDS (secular ethics, that's another matter.)
Well, all my friends like Doctor who, so I've taken to watching it...and a friend told me DW was still in B&W in 1966...while Kirk was fighting that hilariously-rubber-suited Gorn in color already? On the other side of the coin...we seem to borrow some TV shows and ideas from Across the Pond...why is the BBC behind tech-wise and US TV behind "idea-wise?" (Are we...or is this just me?)
