Most of the time "ugly" is a state of mind. To surpass that state of mind, you have to encourage the ugly person to reach beyond their ugliness - this is what the liquor is for. If that doesn't work, you'll need to look very hard for the inner beauty of the ugly person - this is what the paper bag is for. -- MLP
Jeez, man. It's all about GIMMICKS in this big ol' crazy
dot-com feverish world. But I got to say that I think
WIMMIN'S SITES are, like, the weirdest gimmick of all.
Curiosity got the best of me and I just checked out this weirdo CHICKMAIL free
email Web site that you've probably seen tons of banner ads for all over the Web
(banner ads -> they have money). The ads and the graphics are REALLY FUNKY and
with lots of NOSE RINGS and BELLY BUTTON TATTOOS and that kind of shit. They
look like LEVI'S SILVERTAB ADS with fatter, sassier girls.
But, what is CHICK MAIL? What is so superbly fantastically CHICK-LIKE about this
mail service? I went and signed up for a chickmail.com free email account (send
me mail at MisterBad@chickmail.com), and except
for a few bits of navitorial along the lines of "You go, Girl!" and "Right on,
Sister!" there was zero difference from any other Web email service.
I'm not a woman, but if I was I think I would kind of be insulted by this type
of site. Like, as if REGULAR Web email is TOO HARD for GURLZ, and they get all
fuddled up in their pritty little heads and make attractive frowny faces and
sometimes break a nail on the keyboard. But CHICKMAIL is DIFFERENT, because it's
EASIER for CHICKS, with a safe and supportive system for women to use the Web,
like a birdcage for delicate and easily-flustered pigeons.
Surprisingly, this is not necessary. It's been proven that REAL WOMEN can use
COMPUTERS with FAIR to GOOD competency, even outside of a laboratory
environment. Many can actually sit down at a computer and get ACTUAL WORK done,
without accidentally reformatting their hard drive or poking themselves in the
eye with the keyboard or pressing the wrong button and ordering 10,000,000
copies of Infinite Jest from amazon.com. There are even rumors of FEMALE
COMPUTER PROFESSIONALS who build computers, write software, and do tech support
for THOUSANDS of other people -- some of them men! Hard to believe, isn't it?
So, I dunno. It seems dumb to me, but that could be because I'm a GUY. I guess
the deal is that if you come up with a GIMMICK, no matter how FLIMSY, you should
pretty much run with it. Well, OK. Whatever. Chickmail, you go, girl!
