Friday March 20th

The comic:

Oh damn.

I was about to be all happy for Pluggers, praising them for being so progressive by showing a woman playing sports and winning.

Then I saw the caption.


I realize it's meant as a joke, and was sent in by a woman, but damn, I hate that phrase, hate the mindset that created it, ugh ugh all around.

Also, not to nitpick, but why would anyone marry a Plugger except for love, as would a trophy spouse? They aren't rich or good at anything but spouting cliches in an even folksier manner than the original.

makes me think of Everybody Loves Raymond. Marie says that she's a trophy wife, and Frank responds "What contest in hell did I win?"

Perhaps... on a dare? A dare with a very, very large payoff.

*arglebargle mumblegrumble* I hate that phrase, also. It burns my biscuits. Is there such thing as a "trophy husband", I wonder?
