Pictures of Reason Make Me Feel So Wonderful

Did you miss out on Kerry Howley's winning performance at a debate about organ sales? Did you swear off the white man's firewater and skip the semi-monthly Reason Happy Hour? Worry not - Reason's death-defying photographic shock troops were in full effect, capturing the souls of all who attended. Sign up with Reason's Facebook group to see all of the pics.

Pictured: Kerry Howley lucidly explains why you should have the right to profit from selling your organs as Sally Satel looks on, convinced.

    That's not Sally Satel. That's Warren in drag.

    Anyone got a bugmenot style password to get into the thing?

  • ||

    Woo, Libertarian babes! I'd hit it!

    Hey to FARK.

  • Franklin Harris||

    I refuse to join yet another "social networking" site. Get a freakin' MySpace page!

  • ||

    The woman on the right seems to be looking to Howley's left at someone with a look of, "okay, you hold her arms and I will do the beatdown".

  • Kris||

    She kinda looks like Winona Ryder.

  • ||

    YouTube and Facebook both blocked by work. The picture won't load, so I'll have to wait till I get home to ogle. But then I won't have to keep both hands on the keyboard [rimshot].

    Not knowing exactly what cheap shot JW took at me, I can only issue a NTTAWWT denial.

  • Timothy||

    Don't let your mother catch you, Warren. She'll be pissed about having to bathe the cat again this week.

  • GILMORE||

    I'd like to buy a uterus so I can have Kerry Howley's baby

    Thats possibly the stupidest comment i've ever made on these boards. Hey, it's still early. Maybe I'll top myself later.

  • ||

    Just fuggin' with you, big guy.

  • ||

    That's some pretty big talk for a unibrow mout-breather like you Timothy.

  • ||

    Fascinating. Evertime there is a photo of Kerry Howley, H&R commentors get those comic strip thought bubbles, and there's always a t-bone or an oversized drumstick in it. Buncha construction workers, alls'y'all.

  • ||

    Poor Howley. It must be a game among whoever does the photos of these things to see if they can get a particularly good shot for posters to letch at. I wonder if they told her that that was a condition of employment.

  • Brian Sorgatz||

    Did you swear off the white man's firewater and skip the semi-monthly Reason Happy Hour?

    Did you fear repercussions from the Native American community for that remark? Is that why, as I write, this post is anonymous?

    Poor Howley.


    Yeah. Women HATE being admired. Way to step up Lancelot.

  • Brian Sorgatz||

    But then I won't have to keep both hands on the keyboard [rimshot].

    When I used to hang out in the Playboy Cyber Club chatroom and a guy would occasionally wander in and make that kind of reference to masturbation, all us regulars would immediately say, "Yuck! Too much information!"

    Does Howley need to get naked for more respect?

  • The First Church of Appliantol||

    is it the freckles?

  • ||

    So, does this mean that Kerry's been dead since 1929?**

    **I can play the title reference game too.

  • ||

    Gilmore,

    I meant it a bit more ironicly than that. If Howley thought it was a big deal she could complain, which she obviously hasn't. I would imagine it embarasses the hell out of her, if nothing else. I didn't mean it as "Oh poor Howley, how tough it must be to be her".

  • ||

    Well, if you're going to type with your boner, I guess the happy hour threads are the place to do it.

  • ||

    I would respect Kerry the same regardless of her amount of clothing. But there are other things in life beyond "respect", and they cannot be denied.

    With that preface, Kerry Howley: WOO WOO WOO!!!

  • ||

    Yeah. Women HATE being admired. Way to step up Lancelot.

    There's a fine line between admiration and harrassment, and it's crossed in pretty much every thread Kerry's mentioned in.

    If we keep acting like this, what are the chances she'll come to one of our H&R get-togethers?

  • Timothy||

    I've never been able to locate, let alone breathe through, my "mout", Warren. Is this one of the many new and exciting orifices you've discovered during your late nights alone searching for imaginary companionship? I hope you remember to clear the browser cache, your folks are going to be SUPER PISSED if they find out where you've been on the web. I doubt you'll have, "I learned it by watching you, dad!" as an excuse, he seems to have been able to mate successfully with at least one human female. More than you can say for yourself, you cretinous mongoloid.

    Salient points regarding Kerry Howley and my unabashed lust for her;
    1. She is drop dead gorgeous.
    2. She regularly authors sexually themed pieces.
    3. She consistently champions the position that whatever consenting adults do, it's all good.

    Additional relevant points;
    1. I am not accosting Kerry. I don't recall making any comment directed at her.
    2. I'm usually making some other point and throw in the innuendo to add humor or poignancy.
    3. While I may stray into crude, and on rare occasion even get a teensy bit vulgar. I'm not gratuitous, and like to think that I'm at least 'clever'.

    full disclosure point.

    1. I am a flabby, middle-aged, pasty-face, sci-fi watching, big L Libertarian, engineering degree holding, ubergeek. I will in all likelihood, go to my grave having never known the sweet caress of the lips of a woman in Kerry Howley's league.

  • Timothy||

    Salient points regarding Ms. Howley's attractiveness taken for granted, moving along to your others:

    1) Your memory is pretty faulty, not surprising given your extra 21st chromosome.

    2) Yes, because "I'm totally going to beat off to this later" is SO on-point regarding organ donation, totally killer point there.

    3) Try thinking again, I mean I know it's hard and all, but "I'm totally going to beat off to that later" is also not exactly the pinnacle of sex-related wit. It doesn't even get close to Andrew Dice Clay.

  • GILMORE||

    Sir John sez

    I meant it a bit more ironicly than that. If Howley thought it was a big deal she could complain, which she obviously hasn't. I would imagine it embarasses the hell out of her, if nothing else. I didn't mean it as "Oh poor Howley, how tough it must be to be her".

    Good sir, we are in accord. Let us share a cup of wine and toast to our respective chivalrous, snarky instincts.

    There's a fine line between admiration and harrassment, and it's crossed in pretty much every thread Kerry's mentioned in.

    Aye, I know all too well. For I too have suffered from the unwanted attentions of zealous admirers. Roses were thrown at my feet, panties at my head, and money stuffed in my pockets for want of but a momentary glance in their direction. Out of spite, I cut off my own nose. Now I know what it is to be like you, the normal ones.

    No, really. I can imagine being a little irritated at being nominated Reason's playmate of the century.

    Plus, you all are a bunch of desperate angry nerds. Who needs fans like that?

    Still, I thought the "buy a uterous" line was funny. Transgenderiffic.

  • Some Farker||

    I would definitely hit it.....

  • ||

    Guys,

    There is a reason the picture was posted, particularly under a title referencing a song about masturbating to a photo (Pictures of Lily, by The Who).

    Nobody expressing admiration for Kerry's form (as opposed to her undeniably admirable substance) is doing anything that was not already foreseen or, dare I say it, intended.

    So I repeat: WOO WOO WOO!

  • ||

    It might be helpful if Kerry Howley were to give us her own honest reaction to all the hootin' and hollerin' here, on a scale of 1 to 5, to whit:

    5) I am pleased to be regarded as a sex symbol by the H&R horndogs.

    4) This is somewhat embarrassing, but not entirely unpleasant.

    3) Meh. Boys will be boys.

    2) Rein it in a bit, will you guys?

    1) You cretins disgust me. Castration would be an improvement.

  • Federal Dog||

    I did not know that Kerry Howley smoked a pipe.

  • ||

    I am going to bring burkhas to the next reason convention and mandate that Ms Howley and others wear it.

    I already have one for Jennifer, Smacky, and Linguist.

    I am sorry I had to step in this way. I am sad it had to come to this.

  • ||

    Stevo,

    Not that I'm participating in this thread, but you left out the extreme ends of the scale:

    6) How much would these H&R losers pay a month for access to, um, Libertine Girl's Web Cam? Writing ain't paying the bills.

    AND

    0) Hit & Run has the comments turned on?

  • Jennifer||

    I am going to bring burkhas to the next reason convention and mandate that Ms Howley and others wear it. I already have one for Jennifer, Smacky, and Linguist.

    No no no. We wear our normal clothes, and guys who can't handle that wear blindfolds. Occasionally, we will torment them by saying innocuous-but-not-really things like "bouncy bouncy!" And if Warren needs broken glass for whatever reason, we can smash our beer bottles against the floor.

    It's all good.

  • ||

    Libertarianism. . .It's Mammarific!

  • dhex||

    "No no no. We wear our normal clothes, and guys who can't handle that wear blindfolds."

    couldn't we just punch rude people in the face like god intended?

    seriously?

  • highnumber||

    I have not read all the comments, I have skimmed through, so excuse me if I repeat what 8 people have already said.

    -Reason posted a picture of Ms Howley, knowing well how certain commenters have responded to photos of pleasant looking staffers in the past.

    -The headline refers to a song about batin'.

    -Warren knows his reputation and is having fun with it.

    I think all y'all that are so deeply offended on behalf of women everywhere can chill. This appears to be something of an inside joke for Reason staffers.

  • Jennifer||

    Bouncy bouncy.

  • ||

    couldn't we just punch rude people in the face like god intended?

    Like Bill Moyers?

    Haruph. You'll just pull that "old guy" exemption on me again.

  • ||

    "Bouncy bouncy."

    Squirt squirt.

  • ||

    "I'm usually making some other point and throw in the innuendo to add humor or poignancy."

    Innuendo? As in where one puts an Italian suppository?

    May Kerry forever make the straight male readers/commenters think of trains going into tunnels!

  • VM||

    but... but... but. Without playing the "deeply offended" card, how else can posters reinforce the social order hier?

    that's sorta like what Zod intends.

    [grin grin]

    hrumph.

  • ||

    Bouncy bouncy

    Hey Jennifer! I clicked on your pic where it said to view "full size."

    Either you're about only 14" tall or I've been thoroughly gyped.

    What a tease. You're just leading us on.

  • Andrew||

    I am completely smitten with hew.I have nothing to say other than that.

  • ||

    I see other solutions posited here, blindfolds, violence ect.

    None of those will cut it. Violence works in the short term, but then Jen says "bouncy bouncy" or some such and then the hormones increase, and the violence has to increase to keep things in check.

    Burkhas are the only way.

    Sorry.

  • ||

    What a tease. You're just leading us on.

    Same as it ever was.

    Just when and where is the next reason convention? Maybe there is a shortage of libertarian babes because libertarian guys can't contain the drool. The last LP con in California had several hotties present, from the over 50 wife of the Cal LP chair to some teenagers, and the guys in attendance needed to hang buckets under their chins.

  • ||

    I see other solutions posited here, blindfolds, violence

    I know of a place where not only would both of those be considered acceptable tools to be implemented, they'd be outright encouraged.

    Burkhas are the only way.

    FYI, the burkha fetish place is down the street.

  • ||

    that's sorta like what Zod intends.

    I thought he intended that everyone should kneel.

    "Haruph. You'll just pull that "old guy" exemption on me again."

    yeah, i mean, punching senior citizens is bad PR. period. i have to draw that line, you know?

    my desire to give some commentators (who remind me in their own way of japanese dating simulation games, a genre i once described as "aggressively virginal") an atomic wedgie that destroys the boundaries of space and time is largely based on aesthetics.

    the other 10% is the whole "hey this policy is [good/bad] and the person driving it is female so [hot/or not] blarg blarg blarg" thing that's so fucking prevalent here. it's shameful, it's a bad sell for something most of us think is at least decent (i.e. reason) and it looks bad to casual visitors.

    same issue with the whole reason pillow girl thing. that and it's just a fucking ugly ad.

  • ||

    Look, I just want to know if Kerry Howley is offended so I can know whether I should be offended for her.

  • ||

    David,

    Kneel? No. Kneel before Zod? Absolutely.

    A better place to get HTML code for crazy symbols is here.

  • ||

    I don't know if we should be offended for KH. My feeling is that I'm embarassed for the people who do the catcalling. The best way I can describe it is: do you remember when Webster got caught in a lie, but George and Katherine weren't home yet, and, boy, you knew they were going to be disappointed. I don't remember that either.

  • ||

    I am kind of curios where she stands on Stevo's chart. 0 through 6 which one is it?

  • highnumber||

    ProGLib,

    My god! That site even has the symbols for the trigrams from the I Ching. (Although they misname "Earth.") Whoa.

    Heaven over Earth


    Cool!

  • ||

    What heavenly brown eyes!

  • ||

    highnumber,

    Here's the one I found for smacky and her old obsession: ♋.

    What? It's the symbol for Cancer!

  • ||

    Stephen Crane,

    Nice pics in the Facebook group...

  • ||

    I don't know whether I'm more irritated by this juvenile banter, or the McArdle worship, but either way, some of you should go see what pretty girls look like in meatspace. It may even change your life.

    Also, Howley and Sanchez still dating?

  • ||

    So,
    I just made a facebook profile, and I am going through the reason members, and 2 things:

    1- there appear to be plenty of women members of the group

    2- everybody there is using their real name, so I don't know who the posters on H&R are. Unless the members of Reason facebook and the posters at H&R are two different groups.

    I will have to find a way to put my pen name down, so people know who I am.

  • ||

    OK so 500 is more than I figured, so I actually have run across a number of commenters of H&R on the facebook group, and I added them.

    So might be cool.

    It doesn't seem as user friendly as MySpace, we'll see.

    I think we are going to make it mandatory that if you want to comment on H&R you have be be a groupie in the facebook page.

  • ||

    I tried to sign up, but to hell with those assholes.

    They insist on a full name and won't accept a spamgourmet email address. It's not a "real" email address.

    That alone tells me they aren't worth the price of admission.

  • ||

    KH captured all of my adolescent fantasies after that "Ova for Sale" article and cover photo, especially the photo... Wow!

    But after sober reflection over my 54 years of life, I think KH will not find me intriguing.

    Jennifer, on the other hand, might be just the girl for me, especially after that "bouncy, bouncy" comment. Va Va Va Voom!

  • ||

    come on JW be a sport. You can do it.

    Just make an email just for that. Email addresses are free. You don't have to give the email address that all your friends are on.

    I mean, I did, but maybe I shouldn't have.

    Who is KH? Those are my initials. I didn't write any article, and anyways, I'm a dude.

  • ||

    Being poor is about insufficiency, not inequality.

    Yeah, marketing types just make me grumpy with their insatiable need for personal info. I'll just make everything up like I usually do.

    Who is KH?

    The one, the only, Ms. Howley.

  • ||

    I would just like to point out that "howley" is the Hawaiian perjorative for white people, i.e. the Hawaiian "honkey".

  • ||

    "Haole" is the Hawaiian pejorative for white people. It just sounds like Howley.

  • ||

    Lamar,

    What are you,some kind of know-it-all howley?

  • Jennifer||

    But after sober reflection over my 54 years of life, I think KH will not find me intriguing. Jennifer, on the other hand, might be just the girl for me, especially after that "bouncy, bouncy" comment. Va Va Va Voom!

    I was unaware of the causative correlation between saying "bouncy bouncy" and finding you intriguing, Warren!

    Perhaps that's because I'm a girl. We're quite bad at math, you know. And I'm pretty sure that understanding correlation/causation graphs is a mathy thing to do.

  • ||

    Jennifer,

    You have torn the heart from my chest. I realize I am 54 years old, and perhaps a few months past my prime, and that my name starts with W, just as Warren's does, but the similarities end there, you have my word. For example, my name is single syllable, whereas Warren's is the much less desirable double syllable variety. There are other differences as well, perhaps not so dramatic as the syllable thing but when summed they are really quite dramatic.

  • ||

    Wayne,
    they are not really that dramatic.

  • ||

    kwais,

    it's a joke, so puke out a dull, lifeless, painful laugh.

    Why are women bad at parallel parking? Because men keep telling them that [holding index fingers four to five inches apart] is eight inches.
