I've seen many sexist adds in my life, because hey, I'm a child of Consumer Culture... advertisement is the culture.

But this one, takes the cake. Video Under The Cut )

I'm not a huge drinker, I in fact don't drink that much as I dislike being more than buzzed and it doesn't take much for me to get a buzz.
I do, however, know what I like in my alcohol and if there is a beer that I really relish drinking, it's Guinness.
I mean for fuck's sake one of my planned stops while I was in Dublin was the Guinness Brewery!

And now they bloody well went and ruined my love for them and their clever and hilarious adverts.
Fuck them. They just lost a loyal consumer.

Edited To Add: I'm so upset by this that I actually wrote a letter to Guinness. Here's what I wrote Under the cut )

Went to the Irish Festival in Tel Aviv today as the venue to Shira's birthday party, it was very nice, we were a bunch of people sitting in the Cinemateque listening to the Reels and the Jigs and there were people drinking Murphy's all around. Personally, if I'm drinking stout, I prefer Guiness, but since I'm not much of a beer drinker and it being Festival time they were charging expensively so I stuck with the coffee.

After we had a little laugh we went out for lunch at a restaurants near by, unfortunately I didn't notice how slippery the marble floor was on the outside of the Cinemateque and as I went down the stairs small stairs of the entrance to the Cinema I had a real slapstick moment of falling on my ass abd then bouncing down the rest of stairs while I sat there in shock while my umbrella was still in my hand over my head.

I'm giggling as I write this... it was really funny :)

So while I could see that my friends were both worries and trying really hard not to laugh at the expense of my pain, I got up and my with a sore ass and back managed to start walking towards the restaurants and I promptly start giggling at the fact that I fell on my ass in the rain.

I'm really surprised that I laughed, because a few years ago I would have been really upset at falling and being laughed at, now it was like, hey it's just a case of something sad happening to me that would have been funny if it wasn't me, so why not laugh about the fact that I did something ridiculous.

We then went to have some Japanese food and we sat there for about four hours, GD so much talking and food.
And I'm probably meeting some of them later this evening.

All in all a very nice day, not to mention that all my from the old Desktop is now comfortably of Frida thanks to Robbie :)

V and Justice

V: Ah, I was forgetting that we are not properly introduced. I do not have a name. You can call me V. Madam Justice...this is V. V... this is Madam Justice. hello, Madam Justice.

Justice: Good evening, V.

V: There. Now we know each other. Actually, I've been a fan of yours for quite some time. Oh, I know what you're thinking...

Justice: The poor boy has a crush on adolescent fatuation.

V: I beg your pardon, Madam. It isn't like that at all. I've long admired you...albeit only from a distance. I used to stare at you from the streets below when I was a child. I'd say to my father, "Who is that lady?" And he'd say "That's Madam Justice." And I'd say "Isn't she pretty."

V: Please don't think it was merely physical. I know you're not that sort of girl. No, I loved you as a person. As an ideal.

Justice: What? V! For shame! You have betrayed me for some harlot, some vain and pouting hussy with painted lips and a knowing smile!

V: I, Madam? I beg to differ! It was your infidelity that drove me to her arms!

V: Ah-ha! That surprised you, didn't it? You thought I didn't know about your little fling. But I do. I know everything! Frankly, I wasn't surprised when I found out. You always did have an eye for a man in uniform.

Justice: Uniform? Why I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about. It was always you, V. You were the only one...

V: Liar! Slut! Whore! Deny that you let him have his way with you, him with his armbands and jackboots!

V: Well? Cat got your tongue? I though as much.

V: Very well. So you stand revealed at last. you are no longer my justice. You are his justice now. You have bedded another.

Justice: Sob! Choke! Wh-who is she, V? What is her name?

V: Her name is Anarchy. And she has taught me more as a mistress than you ever did! She has taught me that justice is meaningless without freedom. She is honest. She makes no promises and breaks none. Unlike you, Jezebel. I used to wonder why you could never look me in the eye. Now I know. So good bye, dear lady. I would be saddened by our parting even now, save that you are no longer the woman I once loved.
