    And the ones that stick with headshots = FATTIES

  • ||

    As long as we're being obvious.

  • ||

    Captain Obvious at work again, I see.

  • Captain Obvious||

    Avast, ye lubbers!

  • ||

    This is an amazing finding. Someone should call the media.

  • Joshua||

    I'm pretty sure you can shorten that to just ""Women ... value appearance, need attention, study finds.""

  • Montani Semper Liberi||

    Women who post lots of photos of themselves on Facebook value appearance, need attention, study finds.

    Fixed. No need to add unnecessary verbiage to the headline. Short and to the point is what you want.

  • Montani Semper Liberi||

    Dammit, that's the second time I've simul posted today, and both times someone was a couple seconds faster. Guess I need to heed my own advice.

  • ||

    Ha, beat me to it.

  • ||

    The next study will show that guys popular with women know how to compliment their appearance and give them attention.

  • Almanian||

    Oh, come on now...that's just silly.

  • Barely Suppressed Rage||

    "Middle-aged, heterosexual males enjoy looking at women's breasts, study finds."

    "Middle-aged, heterosexual males enjoy looking at women's breasts, study finds."

  • ||

    Heterosexual males enjoy looking at women. Footage at 10!

  • Almanian||

    Man = BOOBS GOOD

    Is there money in this sort of thing? Because I intend to predict a warming trend this year, peaking around August.

  • ||

    Followed by a cooling trend, peaking in 2011 in December.

  • Butts Wagner||

    December?

    I'll take that bet.

  • Warty||

    And what about the women who incessantly whore their garbleblogs?

    Also, comment thread of the day

    Daddy Paul and number #1 son have been spoon feed by the koch bros for yrs... koch's have too many saudi, mideast investments to let it all be destroyed by conflict in iran, iraq, pakistan. It's all about the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
  • Joe M||

    But wait, I thought we fought the wars for oil, not that we avoided them for oil... ???

  • ||

    We need a "Kochtopus" word, but for TEAM BLUE's hysterical reaction to them. Maybe Kochenstein? The Koch Ness Monster? Kochzilla? Michael Kochbay?

  • Citizen Nothing||

    I thought "Kochtopus" was the word. What am I missing?
    (But how about Kochsuckers?)

  • Warty||

    Kochenstein? Could he out-consume Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel?

  • Citizen Nothing||

    Kochconspiritors.

  • ||

    All your suggestions suck. You suck.

  • Citizen Nothing||

    'Cause we're Kochsuckers.

    A win in my book.

  • Citizen Nothing||

    Kochodoodledoos.

  • Citizen Nothing||

    Somebody slap me.

  • ||

    No. You must go deeper...

    "koch" in German means "cook" or "chef". Riff off that.

  • Cliché Bandit||

    the Souskoch?

  • dhex||

    duh.

    kochheads.

  • DNS||

    "koch" in German means "cook" or "chef". Riff off that.

    Either way, I still have yet to receive my hosenpfeffer! Heads will soon roll! Also, "Kochtic" for this unusual TEAM BLUE condition.

  • Citizen Nothing||

    Off near Wichita
    There’s a place called Kochomo
    That’s where you wanna go to get control of it all…

    Oil in the sands.
    Kickin’ ass in A-rab lands,
    Blowin’ smoke ‘till all the dough’s in our hands…

    Scalia, Paulistas -- Oooo we own your keisters.
    Reason, Mercatus. Yeah you gonna’ hate us.
    Cato and Alito, baby why don’t we go
    Down to Kochomo?
    We’ll buy some pols
    Who’ll make our taxes low.
    That’s where we wanna go
    Way down to Kochomo

    Make sure you don't click the "high contrast" link, people.

  • ||

    What is the name of sweet holy fuck is this thing?

    It looks like an alien from They Live fucked one of those squashed corpse midget slaves from Phantasm and the baby decided to dress up like Eddie from Rocky Horror.

  • Warty||

    Surely you've seen Brian Peppers before.

  • ||

    Yeah, I just wanted to describe him for the sissies who are too scared to click my links.

  • Cliché Bandit||

    If they worked more people would click them.

    just sayin

  • Vermont Gun Owner||

    Funniest thing I've read in a month.

  • Paul||

    Oh we clicked. We're just bereft of words.

  • Mother Peppers||

  • ||

    I dated a They Live chick in college. She was okay, but I found her aspirations for world domination to be tiring.

  • ||

    "What's a matter, baby?"

  • QuietDesperation||

    Didn't see that. I'm currently in a two week news embargo so I don't have to suffer Charlie Sheen's batshit rants or hear about which Middle Eastern Islamotopia is burning today. Enough of that shit.

  • Anonymous Coward||

    You mean social networkers are, in fact, highly likely to be attention whores?

    I R SHOCKED!

  • Yo||

    icanhazphoto?

  • Citizen Nothing||

    Headline/photo of the decade.

  • Almanian||

    THAT is fucking exquisite. EXQUISITE, I say!

  • ||

    That is beyond awesome.

  • Paul||

    Only if they make the Kissy Face(tm) pose.

  • Facebook User||

    I didn't know other people could see my photos! What's congress doing about this?

  • ||

    How obnoxious. The importance of women's appearance cannot be overstated (I'm not saying that's a good thing, but it doesn't seem likely to change anytime soon) and it has nothing to do with social networking. Women who are not attractive are socially punished in many, many ways, so it only makes sense for women to want to look as good as possible. Snidely implying that this is anything but perfectly rational behavior is a perfect example of the shitty double standard.

  • sevo||

    "Snidely implying that this is anything but perfectly rational behavior is a perfect example of the shitty double standard."

    I missed that implication. Seems to me the intent of the article was to point out the triviality of the headline.

  • ||

    I was referring to the LAT piece it linked to. It was all: "stupid ladies are attention whores" which is annoying to me, because if women don't look good, immediately the cry of "get away uggo" goes up.

  • Paul||

    But now that we live in a Jersey Shore world, men are also deeply concerned with appearance. The Kissy Face(tm) has even begun to appear amongst the less-fairerer sex.

    When men started showing up at the Salon for a "spray tan", I knew society was doomed.

  • ||

    You work at a salon?

  • Paul||

    No, I saw an ad for Jersey Shore's sister show... what was it called, The Shore or something like that? Anyhoo, one of the llllllllladies on the show tried to stir up trouble for some rival girl by suggesting Paulie/Vinny/Mumbles/Whateverhisnameis come into the Salon for a "spray tan". My understanding is he showed up and hijinks ensued. I immediately turned off my tv and realized my hands were shaking.

  • ||

    To be clear, I was just hoping you'd hook me up with an employee discount. Fat and bearded... that's just my cross the bear, but pale... [shudder]

  • ||

    Re. beards: a coworker is sporting a tax season beard & getting tons of compliments from the women & gays in my office. I've always thought it's a good look for lots of dudes.

  • ||

    The real key is to control the beard. You have to wear the beard, you can't let it wear you.

  • Paul||

    Fat and bearded... that's just my cross the bear, but pale... [shudder]

    Meh, I'm more like Don Knotts, but without the looks or talent.

  • ||

    Don Knotts? Did you ever manage to get a girl to give you a suck-job on the old Adam's Apple?

  • Paul||

    I said without the looks or talent.

  • Paul||

    Oh shit, your post came in at 4:20. Now I get it. Well played sir, well played.

  • cynical||

    Just buy an axe and carry it around everywhere, stay permanently drunk, and learn to speak with a scottish accent.

  • ||

    That picture is terrifying.

    I think it comes down to towing the lion of not seeming like you're trying too hard, for both men and women. Spray tanning for dudes = way over the lion.

  • ||

    I never really cared about New Jersey very much. Now I just feel sorry for the whole state. :-(

  • Paul||

    I'm kind of against spray tanning for women. There seems to be this new disturbing trend where young girls (I can say that 'cause I'm old enough to be their father now) look orange. When did this trend start?

  • DNS||

  • Citizen Nothing||

    KochCo Chanel.
    The mind boggles.

  • Paul||

  • ||

    Some good may yet come out of Obamacare. There is a 10% tax specifically on tanning.

  • Paul||

    Why does Obama hate New Jersey?

  • Shorter Dagny T.||

    Its all dee mens fault.

  • ||

    You know who I hate? People that don't actually use their picture on facebook, like if they just have a picture of a t-shirt or some dumb shit like that.

  • Paul||

    I know. How the fuck am I supposed to know if this is the girl I'm stalking, or that's the girl I'm stalking? Do you know how many 'Jennys' there are out there? Put up a frickin' real picture for chrissakes!

  • ||

    Although, I'm cool when they post a pic of their baby instead of themselves. Then I know they are fat.

  • Paul||

    I figured you'd just see if they mentioned their cat(s) in their "About me" page.

  • ||

    I cool with cats, it's the rat-dogs I can't stand. Yip, yip, yip. And the little fuckers piss everywhere.

  • Gus||

    They make damn good kining dogs.

  • ||

    I fucking hate those people. Or people who use pictures of themselves in sunglasses.

  • ||

    I double hate those fucks.

  • Stevie Wonder||

    Fuck all of you!

  • ||

    They're the worst or the worst.

  • ||

    or = of

    Now it's coherent. Fuck.

  • Almanian||

    You know who I hate? People. that don't actually use their picture on facebook, like if they just have a picture of a t-shirt or some dumb shit like that.

    FIFY...

  • Obvious||

    "Women who post lots of photos of themselves comments on Facebook H&R value appearance anonymity, need attention, study finds."

  • ||

    GRR ANONYPUSSY BITTER AND JEALOUS! ARRGGHH! ANONYPUSSY PROJECT WITH EVERY COMMENT! GRRR!!!

  • ||

    Fuck off, rather.

  • Obvious||

    So wrong. But the truth does hurt, doesn't it, Sugar?
