Isn't it funny?

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

1) That we (women - okay some men) still read 
Cosmo Confessions and think they are real!

2) That we look at mascara ads and that 
really works - when it's actually false eyelashes!

3) That we (women) think of fall as a change in
wardrobe and men think it's time for football.
But we both say FINALLY!!
4) That you & your work bestie can think something is 
hilarious and when you tell someone else...crickets!

5) When anti-aging products or skincare products use 16 year 
olds in their ads and commercials...really 16 and no wrinkles, 
even skin tone and illuminating skin....REALLY who'da thunk it?!?
{more on this sort of subject tomorrow}

What do you find funny or amusing?


  1. The mascara ads always get me!

  2. I didn't realize the mascara thing until much later in life (hmm why were the lashes always so perfect?) I unfortunately fall prey to the "so funny to us, crickets to others" stories as well!

  3. Evil evil mascara has to be the worst with those shiny hair commercials a 1st runner up!!

    Melissa - I literally just LOLed! I hate to burst your bubble but NO WAY is all that stuff true...exaggerated okay maybe some what of a base story there...keep reading though because we all do =)

    Chic & Cheap - I go through this EVERY NIGHT when I get home..."Babe how was your day?" "OMG the funniest thing happened blah blah blah..." NADA!! ... when will I learn...sigh.

    Thanks for all the comments!

  4. I think its funny (sad) that magazines constantly feature "dress for your curves" or "dress for all bodies", but their size range is from zero to 6. Let not even touch on how "plus size" models are now like size 8 to 12, but the average size for american women is 14.

  5. Olivia - So true! Thanks for this...I can't believe this one didn't make the list...I think all the time...okay what if I am not a pear, an apple a whatever and maybe if you showed someone who was ACTUALLY these body types I might actually be able to relate. Also...don't get me started on those jeans for body types...stop doing the same article over and over!!!

  6. haha omg you made my day!

    :) you are so right in every
    single thing that you said here

    i always find myself looking
    at the mascara ads like REALLY?
    that never happens ..

    come join me and
    do the What's on my mind tuesday!

  7. I alwys think things are funny no one else does! I like to think they don't get my high brow humor. ;)

  8. Funny how the world works, right?!:D

  9. I really like the football/wardrobe difference. I've been pretty excited about the wardrobe... and absolutely confused about how people can be excited about football. Now that you've equated it though... makes sense!

  10. I like your blog. please visit my blog and share some comments.

  11. some of your realizations actually blew my mind a little bit, also men are crazy fall is definitely "wardrobe change" rather than football season

  12. haha what a fun list. I've never been a big fan of the confessions section anyway (maybe I suspected they were false!)

    But I find it funny that practically every issue of Cosmo says almost precisely the same thing, but I want and need to read it all!

  13. Melu - you're too sweet. Thanks=)

    Lea - thanks!

    Elle - you are so right...we have out done them with our wit. =)
