Truth in Advertising

This is a real ad. I saw it on Lone Prairie. Scout's Honor.

Anyone else humming, "Suckered by the "Untamed Heart" condition.
Love that feminine intuition"?

nope, not humming that (something tells me I'm glad I don't recognize it)...

alas, not doubting the veracity of your image--saw that on a few sites today myself.

Guess we should just take comfort in the fact they didn't plaster John 3:16 on the front of her shirt, eh?

Poster child for the Christian single
dumped on more than a birdhouse shingle, tired of the same old crowd, she starts to mingle where she don't belong. All God's bachelors hanging in a bunch, wolves in a Wool-lite beat 'em to the punch, score another knockout, barely bought her lunch.
What went worng?

"Seen that movie too..."

It's Newboys, hobster, and you should feel a little less happy about life because you DON'T recognize it.

I wonder what we think she should look like??? Wearing a turtleneck with a cross embroidered on the turtleneck part? Holding a bible with a quilted cover with lace trim? I know, I know. There's no need for the other extreme. Was the general public under the impression that Christian girls don't have big boobs? I guess they know the truth now.

Ack! Bring out the sackcloth (my humidor's full, so I can provide my own ashes), Newsboys! Gotta be honest, I never got the whole Newsboys thing.

fwiw, the same songwriter penned the only 'Christian single' song that embedded itself into my psyche--"Bouquet" (found on his 'Best That We Could Find' and 'Now the Truth Can be Told' albums, tho' the superior version was recorded by Sixpence None the Richer on 'I Predict a Clone')...that's gotta be worth something, right?

am rambling, shouldn't comment on blogs after my bedtime...

Hey! I have big boobs, just saying I don't understand the whole blonde/boob thing! Seriously, why are most advertising companies using this? It gets frustrating to see it everywhere!
Yes, I think a turtle neck would be appropiate, embroidered cross and all, but with an ankle long skirt! LOL ;)
And I love the newsboys!

Hob: Totally.

Yeah, yeah, yeah elphaba. I can always rely on you to march out the reasonable counterpoint.

But here are some things she could be doing differently:

Standing at a different angle.

Not wearing a tanktop.

I'm not opposed to big boobs (insert comment of your choice about my family), and I'm not opposed to Christians wearing tight tank tops.

What I HATE are companies pimping out Christianity so they can make a buck off lusty, single web surfers. Show the attractive, buxom blondie! But don't pretend it's about meeting Christian singles.

There's no doubt the ad is silliness.

Would you guys please stop talking about my picture this way? I was just trying to meet a few, good Christian guys, sheesh.

I'll take the ad down immediately and continue dating heathens.
