Bland Raw Sex Appeal Pussy Ring tone


These are the codes to order the ring tone of the Pussycat Dolls' song, 'Don't Cha'. I'm not sure how many of you know who the Pussycat Dolls are, but in case you haven't seen their film clip or heard of them in the nineties, they're the latest in brand reincarnation of air brushed, make up created fake beauty girl
bands. You really want to follow that link to see an example of this beauty creation, by the by. Anyhow, it appears that there are six of these girls, each giving the pseudo bisexual image that involves touching the other girls to suggest that they go down on each other for a twenty while singing a song about how I'd want my girlfriend to be wild like them. How exactly she would be wild is not said, but I'm pretty sure it involves scat.

And of course, if you want their song as a ring tone, you have to type pussy followed by a number. Now, I don't know about you, but there's something just a touch objectifying about that, and not in a nice way (there are nice ways to be objectified, after all). There's just something about typing pussy and a number that just makes me think of these girls as holes without personalities to get in the way of whatever it is I want to do to be wild. But maybe I'm getting carried away. I mean, this is what pop music is all about nowadays, right? A bland sexuality fleshed out by digital enhancement.

According to the web, the Pussycat Dolls began as a burlesque troupe who were, at one stage, headed by Carmen Electra. Guess it was all downhill from there, huh? That was in the 90s and the girls that are currently seen in the corporate branded pop band are new, signaling the the pop reinvention, which is the natural progression of a burlesque troupe when it is invaded by Christina Aguillera and Britney Spears for guest spots, I imagine. Since its reinvention of the brand name the Pussycat Dolls have even become the subject of such exciting mens magazine descriptions like this from "They sing great, they dance great and they look great--especially when they do it in skimpy lingerie and garters. The only way we could like the Pussycat Dolls any more than we already do is if they did all that while grilling us a nice big steak, too."

Pussy 1.
Pussy 2.
Pussy 3.

They could almost be describing the band members, couldn't they?

I made this post a couple of days ago, but with the Katrina thing and discussion of poorness, I wasn't happy with it being there. But I kept it round cause it makes me laugh whenever I think of the film clip.
