Let's face it, carbon fibre car bonnets aren't the most visually stimulating items, so if you're attempting to punt one down at the world's fave tat bazaar, why not give your auction a bit of added va-va-voom? eBay auction for carbon fibre bonnet, complete with semi-naked woman Since we have no doubt whatsoever that this …
IT angle? Botnets are everywhere.
Thought about commenting on this but frankly, I just can't be arsed.
Should be required
Ebay are missing a trick here. If they required all their auctions to feature at least one shot of a buxom beauty holding the item being sold they could do several things:
* Eliminate "image is representative only" pictures that look nothing like the product being sold
* Increase traffic
* Increase sales
* Piss off just about everyone in the "moral majority" (both left and right)
> * Eliminate "image is representative only" pictures that look nothing like the product being sold
Not necessarily. It might create a new market, though, for 'representative' photos that include a buxom beauty. However...
> * Piss off just about everyone in the "moral majority" (both left and right)
That's reason enough for your idea to get the thumbs up from me.
Look at the polish job on that bonnet
You can almost see your reflection in it...
//Who else but Paris?
she looked more Lithuanian
Photos or ...
...oh you have....
.....Does the Booty Come With The Bonnet(y)???
Too many puns for ine sentence I reckons...
> .....Does the Booty Come With The Bonnet(y)???
The seller does write "bonnet is in perfect condition, as in(sic) the stand that holds it !", and buyer protection does apply if it doesn't come as described (ooer) ;)
// Rated "Oh! Orgasmic" because ... well, it feels rude not to.
I have to say
shows better taste than you'd usually expect from a BMW owner...
Bee in a Bonnet
..... or a bum on a beemer?
It's not Sarah Bee by any chance?
"...a starting bid of just 420 quid:"
So, not exactly going for a thong then?
"the bonnet is in perfect condition, as in the stand that holds it ! "
I could find a parts supplier with stocking levels like that!
Not the normal type of arse you see behind a BMW bonnet...
I know the clue was in the title - but you should have included NSFW in there!!
That said, it's one hell of a strategy.
It is time to retire the whole concept of "NSFW" tags. It was originally adopted because people often had internet access while in their employer's offices but not at home. The situation has now reversed, with more people likely to have routine and customary internet access at home than at their place of work. We're now in a circumstance where the rules can be much simpler: if the site you're visiting is related to doing your work, there should be no one that can legitimately criticize the content. If the site is NOT related to doing your work, then visit it FROM HOME, and you deserve whatever you see. There is no such thing as "job-related but inappropriate" content that needs must be hidden from coworkers.
Re: "NSFW" outdated
Er, this doesn't convince me. I would think a semi-naked woman is still NS for most people's W and they appreciate the warning.
No, NSFW should stay.
Agreed- some HR droids have absolutely zero sense of humor, and will cheerfully accept resignations of people they catch with even moderate amounts of flesh tones emanating from their monitors.
I get away with it because I'm the nanny filter admin and I can pull the "I'm performing an investigation" card. :D
NSFW outdated, NSFH tags instead.
I mean, as a right upstanding employee you wouldn't need them, would you?
But as a conscientous father and/or* mother of the house, what'll the CPA -think if- do when the little monsters rat on you, hm?
* Both also seems to be an option for some.
Keep the warning, please
I'm fortunate enough to spend less time at my employer's premises than I do in my home office. But that only means that in the former location I need to be wary of my boss's location and in the latter my wife's. So, please keep the NSFW warning tags!
Keep the NSFW tag
How else would we know that an article is worth reading?
Any chances of multiple levels of this? Like NSFW for slighly risque, VNSFW for more dodgy, up to VFNSFW for unexpectedly large quantities of exposed flesh.
I for one welcome our carbon-bonnet-wielding overladies...
Re: "...a starting bid of just 420 quid:"
The NHS can probably correct that lisp.
As at 15:12 BST the ad is still live. Amazing.
Badgers because there is no beaver
I would happily
spend 420 with that particular lady.
Surely it's a beetle bonnet...
...that we're all viewing.
He's not selling a beetle bonnet. That would be pornographic
Paris - because she has her own beetle bonnet
If I were you - the bonnet has a large crack.
And now it's...
Where do you...
...put the twin carburettors?
does this mean
i have to go and buy a bloody beamer now? :(
We're a simple-minded, smutty lot....
It's A Man Baby!
I can tell from the pixels.
Geez, I figured that this wouldn't work...
and that they'd go tits up!
Shouldn't that be...
a "beetle hood", being an merkin invention?
And not that I want to teach you your job or anything, but I wouldn't have classified that as a Bootnote.
Yes, yes: I'm putting it on right now.
Just Like a Lot of Other Advertising
The images aren't indecent, and a lot of other advertising involves pretty girls, often half-naked. So eBay has no reason to act, unlike in the case of flashers. Unless, of course, including extraneous promotional content in images is only permitted for paying advertisers.
Short treatise on God, Man, and his wellbeing
I did a short gig at an engineering (wireless) company recently, and took over the desk of an early-20s female who'd just moved on. There were, I think, only 4 or 5 women (out of ~100) in this company, and all the rest were secretaries and HR. It soon turned out that one of her hobbies had been YouPorn, in an open-plan office, on her company computer. Everyone in my group knew about it; even IT knew about it. Nobody cared, but none of the guys would have done it themselves. She was, needless to say, very popular.
far too much junk in that trunk.
