This is, of course, an ad for pork. I can’t believe it took the industry this long to help us females make the important connection between clear nail polish and pork tenderloin.

Then again, maybe we should have figured this out on our own. I mean, after all, clear nail polish is the “estrogen equivalent of duct tape.” As for a pork tenderloin, one “can fix just about anything with it lickity-split too—Asian Grilled Pork Tenderloin, Hawaiian Cobb Salad…” I mean, let’s not mince words: you can basically forget about snaring a husband sans pork and polish.

Not sure which makes me gag more, the kicker (“The Other White Meat and clear nail polish. Two handy-dandy things I can’t live without”) or the very pink color of the raw pork in the ad, which if I am not mistaken looks unnaturally pink…

Found on Salon’s women’s blog, Broadsheet. Originally spotted on Copyranter.

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
