Ugly Gal and Paper Sack

Remember those days when the grocery stores used nothing but paper sacks.  But then, suddenly in California, an astute professor announced that if this continued we would cut down all the forest just to make paper bags.  Shortly after that dire warning, the plastic bag appeared on the scene.  Coincidentally, before we made that switch I had the opportunity to spend several months in Mexico.  I was shocked to see all the stores there used plastic bags.  And to add insult to injury the fans in my small apartment had those damn plastic blades while those back in the good ole USA had those great dependable metal blades.  When I think about it, Mexico was either ahead of the trend or we here in the States are moving toward third world status.

Of course, now those same geniuses on the West Coast are telling us to stop using plastic bags and to switch to non-disposable cloth bags or use paper bags as a last resort.  Damn I hate to think what the next stage, in this grand evolutionary march to ignorance is.

What's a man to do with that  rejection from the Ugly Factory when we have no paper bags or even plastic ones.  Guess that old saying, "putting lipstick on a pig" will become fashionable.

However, I would be the first to admit, the paper bag on the above babe is totally unnecessary, as I would never look above her neck.
