    Auctioned off advertising rights to pregnant belly

    Who thought ad on the forehead was bad/good idea ? How about this ?

    Article from the AP Top Strange News:
    http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories...03-11-03-20-44

    ....on eBay. The winning bid of $1,000 went to a California Internet company, giving it exclusive rights to temporarily tattoo its brand-name on Francis's belly and broadcast the birth of her daughter live on the Internet.
    Edit: Talk about a temporary and mobile sign.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    That tattoo will look very nice once the pregnancy is over....

    Now I wonder what the baby felt when they were doing the tattoo... A sharp buzz probably... not nice.....

    Off-topic:
    I wonder what happens to tattoos when the skin they're on either shrinks or stretches? I know that over time the ink blurs, but never thought about what would happen if the skin itself changes.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Think Mad magazine 'fold in'.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    Do I really need to make a response regarding the male anatomy? Can we all just imagine here?
    Oh, come on. All of you were thinking the same thing!!
    Annoyingly insensitive
