Upon learning that Monica Lewinsky, 33, graduated from the prestigious London School of Economics with master of science degree in social psychology, Washington Post staff writer Libby Copeland was jolted down to the DNA in her bone marrow: She did not!!
The notion that the same bubbly gal who once described the act of flashing her thong at the president as a small, subtle, flirtatious gesture has now written a lofty-sounding thesis In Search of the Impartial Juror: An Exploration of the Third Person Effect and Pre-Trial Publicity was, Copeland wrote, akin to finding a rip in the time-space continuum, or discovering that Kim Jong Il is a natural blond.
No argument from The Stiletto so far. But calling this a moment that makes you question your fundamental assumptions about the world she advances her thesis that the world is full of dumb-but-smart people by resorting to a fundamental assumption read, gender-bashing stereotype - that is as unfair as it is untrue: stupidity has historically been as much of an asset for women as double D's.
The Stiletto understands that women who have teeny breasts are comforted by the fanciful notion that curvy women have teeny brains but she takes umbrage at boob bashing nonetheless. On behalf of bosomy-and-brainy women everywhere, The Stiletto has launched a crusade against boobism the last remaining acceptable form of anti-woman bias.
Even though the most brazen boobists are other women, this flat-out stereotype must still be repudiated once and for all.

Arrgh! That image was a Red X before I posted so I guess it needed to load it into cache.
That's actually the CN Tower in Toronto, as seen from the Canadian National Exhibition grounds.
Personally, I prefer a C cup bra and a DDD brain.
I heard the views from there are magnificent.
S&W 9 mm pistol.
That's just how I feel about MBAs. In my experience they are taught how to get ahead at all costs. Ever been stabbed in the back or sabotaged by one. I have. Would never, ever hire one. Period. Wouldn't want to wreak havoc in my organization.
Glad to be of help!
The two are not mutually exclusive. There's that psychological term, compensation. People generally only resort to reason when impulse and instinct fail. Women are no exception, those who can get by on boobs alone do it as long as they can, those who cannot develop other skills.
Wish I was a brain surgeon and she needed a check up...
Ouch. Makes my back hurt just looking at this one...photoshopped?
Or as one of my perfessers put it:
'Man is a lazy animal, in fact he is so lazy he will even work to avoid thinking.'
Henry Ford said more or less the same thing. He said thinking was the hardest kind of work, that's why most men avoid it.
Why couldn't they have come up with this 30 years ago?
Awesome. Stolen and emailed to CDBEAR as a gift suggestion.
I've found that to be quite true, especially in the workplace. In my company, we have a sizable number of highly-intelligent and skilled women in management positions, and their success or lack thereof has nothing at all to do with physical attributes (with, perhaps, a rare exception).
At the support level though, the secretarial "eye candy" factor is more prevalent. We do have some awesome secretaries though and I am referring to the quality of their work! Sorry - I'm a guy, and guys really can't help themselves sometimes. We can be thoughtful and incisive one minute and then put a pretty, well-endowed woman in the room and we go dumb as a box of rocks.
One of my best friends in school was very bright and had very large breasts. I always admired her,until in later life she became a big liberal. I don't know what this means, if anything:^)
It's just a matter of practice , it's a learned skill
Ah yes, it's the sneaky, dishonest ones you have to watch out for.
I did a lot of stupid things in my 20's and I'm grateful they weren't advertised to the entire world.
Would you care to elaborate? Just between us freepers.
