I'm so sick of this Holiday BS...



A post about Christmas ads, PETA, Theology of the Body, Victoria's Secret revealed, and "Do these GAP jeans make my butt look big?"
.
All right - I changed my mind.  I decided the Gap ad is bad - I mean - annoying.  I love Christmas ads - but the Gap ad is getting on my nerves.  In fact, holiday marketing is very crappy this year - and yet I read somewhere that the advertising business is picking up.  Maybe that was a misprint and it meant to say they are just using pick-ups.
.
Institutional ads seem to be following suit.  PETA for instance.  Without doubt the organization knows how to produce offensive ads, and sometimes they are just as bad (as in sexy) as what industry does - i.e. Victoria's Secret runway slut Christmas special last night.  (Black Eyed Peas are a class act, huh?)   If Victoria's secret be told, and the models were able to articulate a real thought, their Christmas message might well support Polish-born PETA spokesmodel, Joanna Krupa's statement defending her posing nude as an angel holding a crucifix.
.
"I think worrying about going topless in a photo shoot or film is really ridiculous," protested Ms. Krupa.  "And the fact is, Pope John Paul said, since we were born naked, it is art, and it's just showing a beautiful body that God created."
.
Responding to Roman Catholic critics, the TOB spokesmodel continued:  "As a practicing Catholic, I am shocked that the Catholic League is speaking out against my PETA ads. I'm doing what the Catholic Church should be doing, working to stop senseless suffering of animals, the most defenseless of God's creation." - Story
.
I wonder if she is a member of the TOB Institute?  Perhaps it is cheezy of me to use a Polish spokesmodel's theological genius to critique Victoria's Secret soft porn televised lap dance last night, but I just wanted to hit two bimbos with one stone - without wasting a lot of time on the subject.
.
Not long ago a lot of what we are exposed to used to be called "soft porn"...  it may not be called that now, but it still is what it is.  TOB or not.

Top Photo:  Angel bridge.  I didn't use the PETA model's photo as it is soft porn and blasphemous.

  1. Awww, Terry, just do what I do- don't have television at all. Then you don't have to deluge your poor brain with all the trash designed to numb your intellect and turn you into a raving consumer....

    Um, sure, but the Church expects us to do that WITH OUR CLOTHES ON!!!!!

    I saw the ad and found it very offensive. She obviously missed the lesson on modesty, chastity and not being an occasion of sin for others.

  3. I watched the show for about 6 minutes and all I could think about was how young the models were. Some looked like they were still teenagers. I was creeped out by the thought of a mother allowing her child to be portrayed in such a manner and I was wondering how many old geezer- creepers were watching a show that featured YOUNG girls prancing around on stage in their underwear.

  4. Shirley, I asked my children if we should consider getting a bigger TV and my children (3 of 'em) said no. I was suprised and disapointed because I really wanted one. hahaha
    My Grace said , "there's only trash on TV", and I said ," yeah, but we can use it to watch videos !"
    still no takers.

    Belinda - you can still use your TV to watch videos. My wife and I are going to unsubscribe DISH because there are all those channels and no content - money flying out of my wallet each month. We will buy our elderly aunt whom we care for a DVD set of "Bonanza" episodes and she can watch those.
