2004-2011: Live Journal

Is it just me, or are most of the women in commercials nowadays not really that attractive? I’m specifically thinking about the Coors “Wingdog” commercial, where none of the “smokin’ hot chicks” is particularly attractive.

Look, I’m sorry your wife is the most definitely the least attractive human being to ever walk the face of the Earth, and you can’t construct a sentence out of more than five syllables, and I realize that both of those must make you bitter, but if I don’t fuck up, and you give me 10%...you can go to hell.

I will not let this job make me racist, I will not let this job make me racist, I will not let this job make me racist, I will not let this job make me racist...

...as far as I’m concerned, it’s not so much a race thing as it is an education thing.

Ah, Spanish. The only language I know of that can immediately make any conversation more irritating to listen to, just by virtue of how the words and sentences themselves sound...[g]ranted pure Spanish accents (i.e. ones from actual Spanish-speaking countries) are a hell of a lot more pleasant than average ghetto-Spanish (which is just plain strange), but I still don’t like them.

The only thing that saves [the French] from being the worst [tippers] overall is that both Africans and Indians are even worse than they are.

The male servers, meanwhile, had a complicated color-code system in place for when attractive women would walk in (full disclosure: I may have been the one who invented this system, but in my defense, I am a terrible person).
