So let's talk vanity sizing. You know, when you walk into a store knowing full well you're a size 8 everywhere else, only to find yourself blissed out in the change room squeezing into a size 4!
Vanity sizing may culminate in confused shopping trips, where your number ultimately depends on the label in a given store. But more than that, vanity sizing is a genius retailing coup d'etat, tricking you into believing you are thinner than you are. (And hey—rhetorical question—who doesn't want to shop more in a place where they fit into a 4 versus an 8?)
In an article on Huffington Post, hip hop artist Kinnie Starr recalls when she first became cognizant of the vanity sizing phenomenon. She questions the motives of retailers who shrink their sizes, deluding us into thinking we are thinner than we really are.
"It seems like all these forces combine to convince women to expend well-earned capital on dieting tricks and fads in combination with the push to become smaller for a minute according to a tag on a garment," Starr writes.
"As the number on the tag gets smaller, the doorway to 'treating oneself' for getting 'smaller' is opened, and our dollars fly out the window."
Spill it. Does vanity sizing bother you, or are you more inclined to shop at store that flatters you with a smaller size?
Fart jokes never get tired. If you're a teenage male, maybe. Or the Ontario Ministry of Health... Its new public awareness campaign compares social smoking to social farting hoping to get through to young adults in denial about their smoking habits.
“It’s true that I fart but I wouldn’t call myself a farter,” says a young woman in the clip. “I’m a ‘social farter,’ I really only do it when I’m out with my friends who fart."
Aimed at 18- to 29-year-olds, Quit the Denial parodies the phenomenon of social smoking which it likens to other disgusting habits like ear wax picking and farting.
According to an article in the Vancouver Sun, the campaign is certainly not lacking in page views—with over 360,000 YouTube in just a week.
It seems beyond ridiculous to me, but then again I'm not a young male. Maybe I'm just not destined to find farting jokes funny. Ever.
Effective or just a bunch of hot (smelly) air?
