oooh see how hip and cool we are

There are times when you look at something, and you think, what the fuck is wrong with these people.

Happened to me.

I’m driving past carter road, when i see a shiny bright kiosk all the way down the stretch. It’s for a vodka named after the general secretary of the communist party of the soviet union. The same guy who made bird shit birthmarks cool.

Anyway, back to the point. So this brightly lit kiosk has a woman pole dancing. While some bored looking corporate dudes in striped shirts and ties watch her.

And the line says: Pole dancer by night, mother by day.


And more importantly why?

I can just see a bunch of people sitting around a conference table and saying, liberated women + yummy mummy = pole dancer. But modern + traditional = new mother.

Voila, put the two the two together and you have a brainwave.

I’m waiting for the rest. Eventually they’ll probably get to my favourite Gigolo by night, Grandfather by day.

Fools who wrote it + idiot who bought it = dumbasses by night, freaking idiots by day.

Triple respect.

As promised 'starlet on camera, escort off camera'

ick-o! Talk about a slap in the face to the idea of 'respect for women'!

Anyway also fascinating how different culture is even within India. In the small city I lived in that would never fly. But then neither would the idea of women drinking alcohol in public.

Heh, I saw that too. At Carter road.

why doesnt the MNS find it offensive enough to burn it?? or are they the guardian angels of only the Marathi Manoos' self respect and not the manvi??

On the same lines...u would probably want to take a look at the new Bettle print ad (full page TOI last week) about how its the ideal wedding gift.

Subtle promotion of dowry??

i agree. all the moral watchdogs are silent. perhaps they don't read. or perhaps the like vodka.

two more (one contributed by the knife): starlet by day. escort by night.

and: married by day. single by night.

oh boy. clearly they think women are a minority they needn't bother about.

I concur. It's embarrassing to just look at it, on the biggest billboards money can buy. Tsk tsk.
