Sexbots can't be perfected soon enough.

Lyssa said...

That seems more gross than sexy. Doesn't a butt, placed that close to the word "air" just makes you think of farts?

Bay Area Guy said...

My general impression is that cows are not sexy.

My other general impression is that leftwingers are not funny.

That is all.

Make sure you get a Trump slam in there, while you're at it. Check.

I've been asking myself lately "Self, where is all this going? Are we heading for a sort of neo-puritan, ultra sexually repressive cultural shift? What is the endpoint of all this?"

Not Sure said...

I find the name Aimez Tingle hypersexualized, and demand that she change it.

Money shot.

Not for the first time.

Personally I think the name Dairy Air is offensive. The logo ties to the name.

Gahrie said...

That logo is not offensive. Somebody needs to get a life.

Freder Frederson said...

Dairy air?! My first thought was cow farts.

Darrell said...

Farts and ice cream? Negative.
Butt sex and ice cream? Negative.
Ejaculate and ice cream Negative.

Just scrap your business plan and start all over again. Hire some adults, this time.

I want to see what they did with the tits.

Hahahaha. Look at the bunch of stupid inbred rightwing religious fanatics getting all upset over a cartoon.

So many Christians so few lions.

Derriere/Dairy Air.

I remember that pun from back in the 80s when Wisconsin was soliciting ideas for a new slogan for our license plates (to replace "America's Dairyland"). The funniest 3 were:

"Smell Our Dairy Air."

"Come and Freeze in the Land of Cheese."

And everybody's favorite:

"Eat Cheese or Die."

They stayed with "America's Dairyland."

Couldn't use that logo in NYC without getting a Cow-Beret license first.

Agree, the only alternative is to go gay.

Gaybots.

Solution: Chop off the braids. Make the Cow a Bull.

Idiots in NJ probably think Bulls produce milk anyway.

MadisonMan said...

Better: Use both a male and a female version. See which one sells better. Use that one, say the people have spoken.

Chris Breisch said...

"Others still have complained elsewhere that their issue with Dairy Air is that they charge $9 for ice cream."

For how much ice cream? One serving??? Yeah, that'd be my issue also.

So this story is from the '90s?

I have never been able to figure out the idea of a giant ass being sexy, but I guess some guys need a little "cushion for the pushin'"

n.n said...

Sexy cows are a real or imagined problem?

urbane legend said...

It's an ice cream place in NJ. As it is NJ, and not Blue Bell ice cream, who cares? Oh, it's a stupid logo anyway.

Tim Gilliland said...

How about this:

Change the name of the parlor to "The Frigid Dish" and use a picture of Ms. Tingle as the logo... Give her a big scoop of Lemon Sherbet with extra lemons so her naturally puckered lips are extra puckered.

Ambrose said...

The Victorians looked back in horror at what was commonly accepted during the Regency period.

tcrosse said...

This kind of marketing scheme is the reason we currently have a sexual predator representing us in the US Senate.

Leland said...

Can't say either the logo or company name inspires me to want to lick their cream, iced or sour.

Dairy Air Ice Cream: Tastes Like Ass!

That's what the logo makes me think of, anyway. Don't have a whole lot of sympathy here for any of the players; not the overpriced, leering ice cream purveyors, nor the dried up humorless lesbian harpies.

Sacto_Dave said...

When I think of Dairy Air I think of the smell of the air around a dairy. Love the comment about how it tastes like ass. Funny. I agree with the other comment above. When I looked at the picture of the butt front and center like that the first thought that came to mind was farts. Cow farts. Causing climate change. Destroying. The. Earth. Waaaaaa!

"...obviously female cow..."

"Obviously female cow." Lol.

I would have found that ad hilarious when I was 8 years old. Maybe they're aren't targeting an adult demographic.

Ad is stupid, but otherwise harmless. The complainant, on the other hand, sounds mentally ill:

"It is offensive and sickening. A hyper-sexualized, obviously female cow with her ass upended and poking through a circle, tail raised up, waiting for what? I’m not sure, but I do know that I am repulsed and offended”

Sickening! Hyper-sexualized! Repulsed! Offended! (Oh, and "Trump!")

I'm still laughing about that "obviously female cow".

Steven Wilson said...

Let us never forget that the alternate title to "Danny Boy" is "The Londonderry Air."

MikeD said...

As a poor & unevolved pre-boomer, I loved the ad. I'm old enough to remember when it was OK uber prog ice cream makers, Ben & Jerry, had dioxin in their product. Hopefully Dairy Air will soon release a new flavor, Liberal Tears. I'd gladly pay $9 a half gallon for that!

Tingle and her partner, Maya Stein, co-own a local business called The Creativity Caravan — a “studio, gallery, and imaginarium.”

Shock. Double shock. Stock characters, almost!

On Saturday, Tingle and Stein are opening up their business for anyone who wants to come to “a community meeting” to further discuss the issue. “I hope people get quiet enough to listen to each other’s pain without trying to rationalize it or trying to tell this person, ‘How could you be in pain?’” Stein told NorthJersey.com “You can’t tell somebody what to be in pain over.”

This is the logical endpoint of your nice centrist belief that we have to care and take seriously anyone's complaints about anything (well, about anything you care about), Professor. Even when the university was objectively not being racist you say they have to take seriously complaints that people "feel" like the university is racist. Here Stein continues that idea by baldly asserting that someone's expression of "pain" is unassailable--you're not allowed to question it and you obviously have to respect it and take actions based on it.
It all started with such good, empathetic intentions! Predictable, though.

HoodlumDoodlum said...

If Tingle & Stein's imaginarium was called Feelings & Feelings First it couldn't be more perfect.
Try not hearing Carrier Brownstein and Fred Armisen's voices when reading Tingle & Stein's quotes in that article. I dare you.

Can one slut-shame a cartoon cow? I guess they're giving it their best shot.

did the old religious right go left wing or did the left wing go religious right?
