Mingers are Grinners – Mt Isa mayor

20 08 2008

Direct quote:

“Quite often you will see walking down the street a lass who is not so attractive with a wide smile on her face, Whether it is recollection of something previous or anticipation for the next evening, there is a degree of happiness”

And this is how Mt Isa mayor, John Molony is hoping to attract women to his electorate. (Calling all ugly chicks! The Age. Seeking ugly women for Outback’s lonely hearts AP.

Moloney has been panned world-wide (Wanted: Ugly Women – New York Sun) for daring to utter the phrase “beauty-challenged” when referring to the fairer sex. For a man who claims political-correct-speak is akin to “grabbing a turd by the clean end”, I actually applaud John’s effort (which may have been undone by his descriptions of beauty-challenged as missing teeth an/or having one ear lower than than the other). Stay strong brother. (Mayor won’t say sorry – Daily Telegraph).

Moloney’s message is positive one. He’s offering hope to all those low self-esteemed ladies out there who want to find their own rugged unshaven coal-covered flannelette wearing bogan (on $100K+ a year) to tame.  It’s nice to see a male role model telling women there is still hope for them, even if that hope lies in Mt Isa of all places.

He’s not even calling Mt Isa women ugly – which seems to be another major complaint. He is however possibly saying they are right up for it, which might actually have the reverse of the intended affect. Guys aren’t too picky. Being told that out that there are women, even lopsided-eared toothless women, who are actually anticipating the drunken night of debauchery ahead may attract even more oversexed males to the heart of Northwest Queensland.
