You take the high road and I'll take the low road...

I really try not to swear. Aside from my faith-related viewpoint, I always hear my dad's voice in my head saying that people who swear are showing their ignorance, because they can't think of appropriate words to describe their feelings.

Sorry, Dad, but there are no words in the entire English language to adequately convey my feelings for what I'm about to share with my bloggy friends.

Today I saw this photo on Robin's blog, Pensieve.



Uhm...

Uhhh...

What the F*CK?!

Now, I know all about the photoshopping insanity that goes on in the editing departments for the sole purpose of driving women insane trying to look like a supermodel eliminating any shred of positive self-esteem that young female humans have left selling the products, but honestly? Do they REALLY think that this ad will sell jeans to any human being?

I'm not even going to address the fact that I can't imagine buying jeans that look like THAT when they're new. But good grief. Someone needs to either feed that poor girl or fire the photoshopping idiot who thought that putting the waist/hips of a six year-old on an adult woman was a good idea.

If this is high fashion, then Ohmygranny, am I glad to live in the lowlands.

WOW, that is really sad. I don't know how they find that attractive enough to put on the cover or in a ad. It really makes me sad for that model. I hope that is just overly photoshopped because there is no way she can be healthy and look like that.

Anywho....wanted to say Hi and say thanks for joining Georgie and I for Secret Santa again.
