ah, the beautiful people

George Gurley asks New York's Bungalow 8 patrons about their thoughts on Iraq for The New York Observer.


"Don't ever waste a moment in life. Fly to the moon and play amongst the stars, be happy, understand how lucky we are—and don't fight," she said. "I feel personally connected in one way—I'm a mother, and every day in Iraq somebody is losing their child. My little girl will never go to Iraq. I'm sorry, she'll go to Prada."


see the rest, here.

No, they deserve to be made fun of.

Having their opinions is something that they can do all they want. Thinking that their opinion is retarded just happens to be a natural occurrence resulting from them opening their mouths.

A lot of people just don't give a damn about American troops dying daily. America is not terribly popular at the moment. Even as Americans, we don't know why we're at war. This whole thing is such a mess and so sad too.

Wow. If ignorance was contagious, I'd be terminally racist, sexist and just plain stupid after reading some of the things those people said.

A Rack? You mean titties?

Oh...oh my dear Lord. Seriously? Seriously?

Good God!! I'm just speachless!

ok, now i read the entire article i have to confirm that i DO agree with these ppl (minus the Austrian guy because he has no right to trash America since he is not an American and just like we are brainwashed in this country to support our goverment blindly, the same way his government is brainwashing him with their agendas)

Anyway- I agree if ppl would just focus more on their families and “Shoes. Handbags. Fashionistas to laugh at. Waxing the undercarriage—from your poonnany to your back door. It’s fucking painful.” They would have less time to go freakin drop bombs on other countries and fly planes into buildings.

This goes for BOTH sides! War is wrong- for us and for them. PERIOD i dont even understand why there needs to be a discussion about it. WAR happens because idiots on BOTH sides don't fucking have the competence to come to a resolution without killing eachother.

And as for my personal opinion, war happens because some asshole on top is making money on it!!! assholes in this country and assholes in the other country are both after MONEY!

And yes I believe if people were more "shallow" and cared more about pretty clothes and make up, chances are we would rather get together and give each other pedicures in "pretty in pink" and not be interested in blowing each other's heads off.

Oh... and to the ani-american europeans, they need to shove their tongues up their assholes because when buddys the terrorists decide to cream their cathedrals and their fancy salami shops, they'll be the first to come crying to america for help.

Now, i'm heated- will go douse my face with some rose water spritz (from Jourlique) to cool off.

Jacqie Venable, a 40-year-old music producer, was wearing a beret and jeans. She said she wasn’t wearing underwear.

What?

Jon said...

Omar, that’s how I start most of my conversations in person. It’s usually something like, “Hi, my name is Jon and just a little F.Y.I. I’m not wearing any underwear.”

You don’t really get that from me on the blogs because I don’t see the point in typing that out. Saying it yes, but typing it? That just seems like I’m revealing too much.

On topic, I don’t think I’ll ever be allowed inside Bungalow 8. I don’t feel that I possess the proper education. Yes, I learned to stop wearing underwear at age 4, but beyond that, I have not other polished qualities like those of the regular Bungalow 8 clientele. I fear I may be too old to learn now.

cadiz12 said...

hoooweeee, guys, i never knew this post was going to reveal, ahem, so much about you.

man, i could use a pedicure.

jinius said...

good thing these people dont work in govt

Actually, I hear that things can get pretty heated in Prada. I mean, what if it's the last Prada bag to ever come out?

Perspective does funny things. Things look bigger when you're closer to them. And Iraq is so far away . . .

I'm resisting the urge to pull the political trigger on Ale right now and just go all-out debate style.
