Are there any abbreviations / codes / whatever that new players should know before we sign up for various games?

Thanks.

The vaginal onion imagery is a nice touch. What an over-the-top ad for bourgeois dogfood (no offense to dogs).

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...

...what's the point.

Gotta go....Whopper is calling me.

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.

Well if you cunt an onion from top to bottom, the pattern resembles a vagina.








Yes, the misspelling was intentional. :-)

Well, Russia (and Europe) are more lenient when it comes to sexual references in their adds. Hell, German TV has full frontal female forms late at night.

Vaginal onion imagery? What were the tomatoes supposed to be? I guess I don't have enough imagination to see these things...

So, that probably makes me some kind of fundamentalist Christian nutjob misogynist because I don't see vaginas in onions.

Since BK clearly inserted this vaginal onion imagery on purpose they'll know what I mean when I go to BK and order a whopper with extra vaginas, right?

Hehe...it's a little vagina-ish I guess. Shouldn't you be complaining more about the women being used for their good looks and sex appeal than about a STUPID ONION? Just sayin'...

In Putins defense even I saw it.

@Putin: Its the internet. And I think its easy to tell when I am being serious or not. (which neither of the above posts were, given that I called Germany backwards)
Putin33 (240 D)
14 Dec 11 UTC
I'm not complaining about the onion or vaginal imagery, generally. That part just stood out for being more unusual than the average ad.
Jacob (2598 D)
14 Dec 11 UTC
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?
Jacob (2598 D)
14 Dec 11 UTC
Um, you watched that whole commercial and it was the ONION you found the most unusual??
Putin33 (240 D)
14 Dec 11 UTC
Keep going. You're obviously entertaining yourself while ignoring what I actually said.
Putin33 (240 D)
14 Dec 11 UTC
That part was more subliminal. The DJing with the use of giant whoppers wasn't worth pointing out. Is there a goal to your repeated taunts, or what?
Jacob (2598 D)
14 Dec 11 UTC
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.
Putin33 (240 D)
14 Dec 11 UTC
You're just being a belligerent ass now. I didn't realize I had to make a commentary about every aspect of the ad and that you would flip out about mentioning onions.

Pretty funny ad. The vagina in the onion thing was really brief. The overall tone of the ad was a bit sexual. Aimed at teenagers is my guess. Made me hungry for a burger.

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.
