Sounds like the town I grew up in :( Had to move to find a good looking woman to date. (Wound up and married her too!)
2003-05-30 12:33:09 PM  
Why is that ironic?

If the town is known for it's ugly woman this should have the "Obvious" tag. Fark N00b.

What the hell kind of town name is Gunma Prefecture? It sounds like the technical name for getting your johnson lobbed off by a weedwacker.
2003-05-30 01:51:57 PM  
It's kinda like that town where everyone is always running late and nobody showed up for the "Be On Time" contest.

Oh, the irony.

What, they are having it here in Pittsburgh?
2003-05-30 03:53:34 PM  
I like the story about the porno actress turned drug runner. Click on the hottie to the left of the article.
2003-05-30 03:53:39 PM  
No problem, just get the judges drunk. Then they all look good.
2003-05-30 03:54:00 PM  
Oh yeah, everyone wants to enter a pretty girl.
2003-05-30 03:56:03 PM  
Anyone notice this link beside the artical?
2003-05-30 03:56:14 PM  
Unlike the past, people shun taking part in contests where they don't know what the end result will be.

So they are not only ugly, but cowards too.

I'm sorry, what? I got distracted.
2003-05-30 03:58:32 PM  
Gunma Prefecture is the name of the "state" that the town is located in...I do find it a little dubious that the pickin's are that slim based on what i have seen in Japan.
2003-05-30 03:58:48 PM  
Did you people read the other headlines to the left?

yeah the porn star story is better, probably already posted in totalfark
2003-05-30 04:02:40 PM  
From the article about porn-star-turned-drug-mule:

Adult video industry figures are shocked at Shimizu's slip from grace.

2003-05-30 04:02:52 PM  
Actually it said Dopey porno starlet, what's w/that
2003-05-30 04:03:03 PM  
Oh well we all knew the streak would be broken. This is obvious and not ironic. It would be ironic if tons of hot chicks showed up for a beauty contest in a town known for ugly women.

/sighs and shakes head.

I did a search for some photos and found these sites: (apparently the place has a major hemp community)
and this photo of some girls in a classroom there:

MandM, you beat me to it. The other headlines are hilarious! Heres a few more:

Hooker housewives redefine a hard day's work

Mirror, mirror under the wall, who's the voyeur in the next stall?

You've butchered my girlfriend! Marry me!

Beckham changing the face of female genital hair

Anna shakes off bum parasites

Another from the porn start artcile:

"She's only petite, but has got a whopping set of boobs and a fairly nice body. She's famous for really going for it with her sex scenes. It's hard to believe she was running drugs," says Meatball Yoshino, a co-star in a handful of the 40-plus dirty movies Shimizu made from 1999.

There is so much material here. Get to it Farkers.

I'll start: How is it hard to believe that a porn star is involved with drugs?

Plus: The first Farker with the screen name MeatballYoshino get a autographed Shimizu DVD.

Bass555: Well she certainly isn't "Bashfull"
2003-05-30 04:05:52 PM  
Dopey porno starlet = porno starlet w/dope
2003-05-30 04:06:18 PM  
Do a GIS for Kaori Shimizu. ;)

Oh and props to a girl who gives head without demanding a condom. :) (And seriously, what porn star gives head with a condom?)
2003-05-30 04:10:15 PM  
Done and done. But it'll be 24 hrs before I can use the sn. Now where's me pr0n?
2003-05-30 04:15:05 PM  

Do a GIS for Kaori Shimizu. ;)

Uh, I'll be right back.
2003-05-30 04:16:46 PM  

That was too hilarious. And yet--- I know you are serious.

I should be offended being originally from that area. (think Rolling Rock, Arnie Palmer and Mr. Rogers.)

But I am not--- for I have seen the evidence meself and have come to terms with it. PA, NC and OH have the largest populations of fat people per capita -in the country. Ain't no denying it. That's not saying you can't be fat and beautiful--- but it sure don't help the ugly.

Also living in TX and CA provided proof if ever I needed it.

A friend in TX asks my husband, "Are the girls really prettier down here?" The man said, "Yes." I screamed and knocked him in the shoulder.
He looks at me and says, "But it's the truth. In general, there is a lot more pretty walking around."

The man can't lie to save his life.
2003-05-30 04:17:32 PM  

Did you have to milk your bone?

I sure did... Got some really weird looks from my co-workers too.

I have a men's pocky stick for her.
2003-05-30 04:21:32 PM  
MandM and Bass555

If the Dopey porno starlet isn't Bashful, I wonder if she wakes up Sleepy, Happy or Grumpy (or all three she can have a good time), but if she feels Sneezy, she'll have to go see Doc.

/got nuthin'
2003-05-30 04:24:16 PM  
The answer is not beauty pagents, it's a giant robot.
2003-05-30 04:29:47 PM  
Shimizu was widely regarded in the video business, never shunning assignments other girls would regularly turn down such as facial shots, picking up guys and simulated rape.

What a trooper.
2003-05-30 04:33:12 PM  
So it seems the cat was captured by the very man who intended to capture him...

Note to judge, if the schoolgirl outfit don't fit, you must acquit:

A Japanese town that can't come up with five hotties? Doesn't sound too likely to me...

sorry but she is not even cute...or is that stating the obvious?
2003-05-30 05:03:06 PM  
Imagine the effect of gallons of stuff in her bukake vids, LukeCage. Be kind, she's still a doll and "it's a demanding job."
