One Million Moms, an offshoot of the American Famly Association, has this to say:

quote:

Tell Purex to pull offensive ad

A commercial for Purex detergent contains nudity. Perhaps you have seen it. Here's how one of our members described it:

The ad comes on with a naked man with only socks on, in a yard scene. Two women are looking over a fence at the man and are talking about how white his socks are. They have a black strip covering his private part. They could have used something besides a naked man.

Another viewer says:

The commercial shows a naked man with private areas blocked out. It is very obvious that he is naked and I was glad that my children were out of the room.

Let Dial Corporation (makers of Purex) know you find little humor in using nudity to promote its products.

Send Your Letter Now!


Truly, ye must fear the pee-wee. It canna be contained by a fragile black box. Beware!

No kidding, eh? These people must think that after midnight the box disappears and that nightmare about the giant snake in the turtleneck sweater comes true.

I'm glad I buy Purex detergent. I should send Dial a letter saying that it's because of the pecker.

In similar news, I saw a Hamburger Helper commercial where a woman's naked breasts were concealed by a shirt. What's with all this nudity all of a sudden.

But we CANT'T bring those shows back. Ozzie and Ralph and Norton ALL have obscured penises(penii?)

The only way to stop this scourge is to demand that all men who appear in public with their penii obscured be PUT TO DEATH!

Leave No Penis Obscured, as our president would say.

Did you know, Yossarian, that during the 1960s, some Maoists on the U of T campus dubbed Northrop Frye the "high priest of clerical obscurantism"?

I've always liked that phrase, for some reason. So much more poetic than "running dogs," the connotations of which -- apparently -- were lost in the translation from the Chinese.

It's weird in a tragic sort of way that so many people will have tantrums over the sight of a human body part but that there is so much obsession and glorification of cruelty in popular culture.

The only safe way to obscure a penis is with the Fig of War!

Added:

When to apply that obscuring device may best be determined by observing the Limitation of Statues.

This thread becomes a lot funnier when you assume that every single handle appearing in this thread is actually the nickname of a penis. Usually the poster's penis, but sometimes a penis well-known to the poster.

And I don't just mean "Wee Mousie" or "gunnar gunnarson". Think for just minute about "Sineed", "'lance", "Papal Bull" and "Mr. Magoo". Every handle appearing in this thread automatically becomes a good nickname for a penis.

Edit to add: Oops.

Mr. Magoo is a gross name for a penis! Lethargic with white stuff around its mouth!

I'll refer to my penis as Papal Bull. And I'll call my testes Leo and Calixstus.

Well, *my* screen name can't possibly be used in reference to male genitalia..

How about Hippolytus and Calixstus? Then later Hippolytus could be reconciled with Pontian and die a martyr's death?

Another webforum I frequent has occasional banner ads featuring a young woman in a bikini. These have been branded 'pornographic' by some, amid hand-wringing (ouch!) that the 'site is turning into a 'lad's magazine', what with all the 'pornographic material'.

Get a grip! It's. A. Bathing. Suit.

The Amish do have a website, but unless you have an original Babbage kerosene-powered Differential Machine connected to Barb Wire, you wont be able to access their site.

And please dont ask why, when the Amish selected their IP, they chose one associated with Pamela Anderson? If you could, wouldnt you?
