If a company needs to sell his products with reference to a sexual embedded atmosphere, you know it stinks!

But you are still (like we all) sensitive for it.

It's not the art, Bob

It's the slyness with which the advertizers show the different types of seductive women in order to catch every men's attention:

the high class woman type, the sophisticated, the adventurous, the double-D, the wealthy type.

In fact it's woman degrading advertisement!

Any thoughts on the boat being held like a rifle?

Women buy sailboats? Men use more than their little head to think? I don't think so


I'm boatless.

I bought insurance from these guys, and wouldn't you know, three days later all the women in those ads came over to my house to PARTY!

They brought free booze and food with them. They have been here two weeks and aren't showing any interest in leaving. They just keep ordering food and booze with their credit cards. When they are done showering, they don't put their clothes back on right away and just prance around naked.

Wow! Am I glad I got this insurance!

Those girls remind me of the girls I met at the Sea View Club in Dubai last week. They were all trying to sell me something, not sure if it was insurance or satisfaction. Either way, I couldn't afford it!

When do go-zillionaires buy insurance?

Those boats are like buying I-pads for us commonfolk. Their shell corporations own/insure them for the tax write-off (funny how those super-mega-uber yachts depreciate so quickly... Almost faster than professional athletes which is why they usually also own a professional sports team or two).

The folks with the boats in the 75-250' length are the ones who actually insure (since they may not be able to afford cash for another one)...

Hence the more fun part? My experience high maintenance does not equal more fun. Although I'm pretty sure Flo is the type to leave mental and physical scars that will haunt you to your end. Which has its appeal.

Flo is the brightest bulb in her family. You marry Flo, you'll be supporting a whole trailer park of in-laws.

She's the queen of your double-wide, no doubt.

sorry... typo: "MANUFACTURED HOUSING", not double-wide.

wait... typo: "TORNADO MAGNET", not manufactured housing...

sheesh.. I'll never get the politically correct term for trailer park...
