He should have done the "big Vagina" sign back (any Curb your Enthusiasm fans out there?)

Well, its always been said that men in fast cars are making up for their certain inadequacies. Small penis = Big Cars (sometimes)

Thats why I ride a bike with a 54 cm top tube.

Yea, broke guys with equally small parts say that... doesn't make them feel bigger or any less broke though.

So what are the women in the giant SUVs making up for? Their sports-car driving husbands?


That ad campaign seems a little ridiculous. If it HAD been the "huge vagina" sign, the protests would still be going on...

Geez, if someone made that sign to me, I'd just accept it as honest criticism and move on.

Remember, the Ad was in Australia. Some countries are more liberal when it comes to whats on their television. I wish we can have that topless weather girl from Europe. Thats sure to wake me up. If that ad was here in the good 'ol US of A the lawyers will be having a field day.

For what its worth, IMO, giant SUV's = small minded people. See, there is always a correlation.

Note: I did not mention gender in my example. So, get off my back.

I'm gonna get a SmartCar so everybody thinks I'm huge.

There's only one person who could hurt my feelings by making scathing commetary about the size of my package. Last I checked, she and I usually ride in the same car so I don't think there's any problems.

If anyone has seen "Field of Dreams" or read "Shoeless Joe Jackson" remember the thing about the batter blowing a fake kiss at the pitcher and throwing him off...

I blew a kiss once another guy and he flipped he was screaming so loud his SUV was rocking back and forth.. then he proceeded to run me off the road..

Some dudes are insecure. Really insecure. If someone made a small penis gesture to me the first thing to go thru my head would probably be "well.. I doubt she will ever get to find out"

If someone gets a BIG car to compensate for something SMALL, then what is someone that gets a SMART car compensating for?

Seems like it wouldn't bother him if it weren't true. I take the same attitude when someone yells "***" at me. Either it's true, and how can you be mad about the truth, or it's not, and why get upset about a lie?
