I guess that makes me one ugly S.O.B.
The lineup starts here, ladies.

As reported in the latest issue of "Duuuuh!!!" magazine?

Giggling my way to the bank.

I knew it was for more than just my brains.

And we're worth every penny.
 
2007-08-11 10:07:17 PM  
Hence why I never tip the ugly prostitutes.
 
2007-08-11 10:07:38 PM  
well, there's a shocker.
 
2007-08-11 10:08:55 PM

Fat and ugly are two remaining prejudices we'll probably never get rid of. But I wouldn't be surprised to see the UK require all job interviews to be performed with a bag over your head after this report.
 
2007-08-11 10:10:14 PM  
I may be the exception that proves the rule...
 
2007-08-11 10:10:35 PM  
That's why I steal office supplies...
 
2007-08-11 10:11:04 PM  
And that's why I'm rich.

Yeah.........on their knees.

Some people, are a pleasure to pay.

Eh, I believe looks can take you so far. Then its your brain that matters.

Correlation != causality.

Pretty people have healthier parents, better diet, and good health care ... on average ... then ugly people.

This article is made of fail.
 
2007-08-11 10:14:11 PM  
I knew there was a reason I make more than my boss!
 
2007-08-11 10:14:52 PM  
As an ugly person, I would like to debunk this study somehow.

Ummm... beautiful people are... crying inside?

Hmm. Attractive people are dumber or something. Than me.

Excuse me. There's something in my eye.
 
2007-08-11 10:15:08 PM  
It's tough being beautiful. At least we're finally being rewarded for it! :P
 
2007-08-11 10:15:45 PM  
and smart people earn more than dumb ones.
 
2007-08-11 10:16:26 PM  
I must be the exception.

What about height?

Unlike fat and ugly, which can be modified somewhat through exercise or plastic surgery, you can't change adult height.

Ugly people unite!

He inherited it from his father.

True. Plus rich people can afford all those creams and cleansers in the funny shaped jars that MAKE you pretty, not to mention the toof veneers, saline sacs, chin implants and laser hair removal.

I'd like to patent the upcoming wave of men's high heels.

In short, humanity is full of superficial clowns.

The end.

Wow... So you're poor and ugly then?

People want to impress pretty people because they would like a fark. It's why you send the prettiest woman in the office to break bad news to a client. A pretty woman who knows her stuff will always get a better reception than me.

This addiction to tossing out correlation and causation with a pair of meaningless symbols un between addiction that you have makes you very attractve to me. When you follow this up with meaningless psychobabble it makes me think you are hot. Then when you end with something as wonderful as "full of fail' it makes me very very excited and all tingly over the mere thought of you.

You are definitely worth more money you sexy thang.

12% isn't enough...I want more...

Wow. Given the pittance I'm being paid, I pity the ugly lab instructors.
 
2007-08-11 10:27:38 PM  
It's only fair that we make 12% more. We have to put up with looking at you... normies.
 
2007-08-11 10:29:48 PM  
Inner beauty won't get you laid.

Does that mean that I can get rich by inventing HIGH HEELS ??!!!!

You can, if you can make them fashionable for men...
 
2007-08-11 10:32:32 PM  
Thank you, Captain Obvious.
 
2007-08-11 10:32:58 PM  
So let's see... if I lost 70 lbs, shaved, cut my hair, and stopped wearing aloha shirts to work and ironed my Dockers once in a while instead of wearing jeans, I'd make 12% more?

Hmmm...

Fark that.
 
2007-08-11 10:33:52 PM  
what kind of jobs did they look at in this study?

it makes sense that an attractive waitress or bar tender will make more than an unattractive counterparts. however, there are some careers in which attractiveness wont affect income. example...if you have cancer i doubt you or your primary care physician is shopping around for the the most attractive oncologist.
