When Did We Become So Trashy?

Yeah, Eat Plenty of Maggots and Lose Weight

Yeah, Eat Plenty of Maggots and Lose Lotsa Weight

There is a new spate of ads on the Internet aimed at idiots. They are usually aimed to appeal to more ignorant Internet users and are frequently sponsored by DoubleClick and related enterprises that would love to load your computer with malware. Once they have you, you’ll see plenty of ads featuring big-breasted middle-aged women, old codgers joyful at reducing their mortgage debt, and finding ways to get your beanpole to extend to ridiculous lengths.

What I find interesting is, that if you click on one of these, you will be directed immediately toward other bonehead ads that make ridiculous promises. You will probably even forget what you were looking for in the first place. Just follow the pendulous boobs and you will be directed to Pleasure island where, in no time at all, you will turn into a donkey.

  1. I recently read an article where a researcher decided to try out the so-called “tapeworm diet” on himself. After considerable research selecting the most harmless type (some can spread to the brain, etc), he ingested one.

    After a couple of weeks, he found that he had gained weight. The tapeworm was stealing certain necessary nutrients (as best I could understand the article), and he had to eat more to make up for the loss.

    • this quotation is from the Wiki entry on Circe

      In Homer’s Odyssey, Circe is described as living in a mansion that stands in the middle of a clearing in a dense wood. Around the house prowled strangely docile lions and wolves, the drugged victims of her magic;[3] they were not dangerous, and fawned on all newcomers. Circe worked at a huge loom.[4] She invited Odysseus’ crew to a feast of familiar food, a pottage of cheese and meal, sweetened with honey and laced with wine, but also laced with one of her magical potions, and drunk from an enchanted cup. [5] Thus so she turned them all into swine with a wand after they gorged themselves on it.

      I don’t remember a similar incident with donkeys.
