Weird Looking "object" In Gluten-Free Mall Banner

Okay, the definitive answer.

She has sandy-red hair with a gorgeous tan. She has two pigtails, one being slightly higher than the other (as pigtails on the side are wont to be). The sun is shining on the hair on the right (left) side, which makes the lower part of the hair look strawberry blonde. The arrow is indicating....

a red ribbon tied in her hair. :rolleyes: Well, the other one is in the shade. :P

OMG.... .I have FINALLY figured all this out. It seems crushingly obvious to me, now -- how could we have laboured over this so long?

It's you, isn't it, Riceguy? Grew out your nails, threw on a feminine white T, affixed tied extensions to your hair, made certain that the lollipop was placed to exactly and completely obscure your obviously male face.....then set up your positioning to cast strange, illusionary shadows, to capitalize on the sun's colour- and shape-tweaking properties.... . . ..and then the master stroke -- throwing the what-is-that-strange-thing question to us all, seeing how befuzzled and pensive we become.....

Now it all make sense.. . .....

:lol:

I think I said that first?

Yes, yes, you were first! :rolleyes:

Mom, Karen always gets to be first!! :angry:

YOU get to say "Na, na told you so!" :P .

But modiddly and I said it too!!

....just sayin. :huh:

:lol: :lol: :lol:

This is, as the Bard would say, MUCH ado about nothing.

Don't we have small countries to run or something?

Get busy, you!

Well, I don't buy the explanation, for the simple fact that the person who responded wouldn't know any more than the rest of us, unless they were involved in creating the ad, or spoke to someone who was.

Aren't things like this farmed out to advertising agencies? Then again, such a blunder of a photo certainly doesn't look like something a professional would use in this kind of ad. Although I haven't done a lot of paid photography work, I'd never have used a photo like that. A pro would have taken numerous shots, then examined and compared them to find the right one for the ad. So I cannot accept that the one we see was the best of the lot. Again, this reasoning may only apply to a professional photographer.

By the time most of you see this post, I'll have sent a message to Scott. However not to ask what the thing in the photo is, but if the ad was done professionally.

Besides, being tan doesn't preclude red hair. It's called Clairol.

Poor Scott! :o

Rice Guy, we thought this was a "just for fun thread" and responded that way. We had no idea that this is so serious to you and that the ad has offended you in some way.

I have to agree. I'm no professional photographer whatsoever, but regardless, I am analytical when it comes to this sort of thing and If I were to look at this picture with a analytical/professional mindset, I would not choose this picture for an advertisement. If I were in the consumer affairs/advertisement department of the company, I wouldn't be happy with it and would push for something different....it's a lot to do, just for an ad, but it is really representing who the company is.

I don't know the ad is just kinda CREEPY! :ph34r:

Like I can't stop thing what IS behind the lollipop? Is it the face of the offspring of Ronald McDonald and Wendy? Possibly painted up like a freaky psycho clown? Now the thought of a conjoined twin has just sent me over the top. :rolleyes::lol:

For the record my skirt is currently proplerly placed, thank you very much.

Just to be clear...the expression my Mom uses "Whatever blows your skirt up" means nothing except "do what makes you happy" or "whatever floats your boat". :)

It is used in the spirit of generosity. :)

Like "can I have chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla?"

"Sure, honey...whatever blows yer skirt up"

IH likes to be very clear about such things--- as I do not wish that expression to be used/considered as anything judgmental. :lol:

Carry on!

As I quickly proclaimed in another thread, this is a FANTASTIC expression, and I have since sprinkled it thrice into daily discourse, with a credit to you, IH. The latest incident occured yesterday when my son asked if he should wear his blue jeans with his grey shirt instead of his old black standbys. I was happily able to proclaim:

"Sure, hon. Whatever blows yer skirt up....courtesy of IrishHeart".....

He stared at me like this:

:huh:

And I sauntered from the room like this:

B)

Yes, yes, carry on! :rolleyes:

It is a mysterious object called a "ponytail." Usually young girls wear their hair in such fashion, but in this case it is a young woman. unsure.gif

This picture was taken shortly before she was abducted by aliens...we were not able to capture this "capture" on film...sorry.

No, not offended. But intrigued, mystified and perplexed, yes. Sure, the thread is mostly for the fun of it, but part of that fun is in discovering the answers to the mystery. I admit I may get carried away with things like this. However, there it is, staring us all in the face, begging and beckoning for reasons for being.

OK Scott, weeeee believe you <_<

I just knew aliens had something to do with it. Perhaps they heard the expression "a sucker is born every minute", and came looking for the hatchery.

There is a full page ad with this same picture in the GIG's and CDF's newsletters...it is more clear in those as they are larger and not cropped, but she is also leaning forward toward the camera.

Take care,

Scott

Can we all see the picture? It may help us see it as the ponytail that it is and not the weird creature like thing.

Well I have been busted talking too racy on the forum before. I just wanted everyone to know I'm trying to behave today. I can't guarantee anything for tomorrow or the day after. ;)

I am in the lower pennisula. (yup I'm a troll) :ph34r:

I am in the lower pennisula. (yup I'm a troll) I live in the safe triangle of most dangerous cities in MI. 50 miles north of the D, 50 miles south of Flint, and probably too close to Pontiac.

In the weird band of snow for Pine Knob and Mt. Holly ski areas.

My sister is in Monroe. I haven't ever been there but, I was out to Holland (West side of the state) when she lived there.

As I said, from a photographer's perspective I could see her hand is larger because she is thrust forward and leaning toward the camera.

I wouldn't steer you wrong, Riceguy! ;)

Honest. :)

My brother lives in Holland with his family. I really like that area!

Well, some of the racy stuff nearly caused a riot! Some really awesome people left the site never to return after being chewed and spit out. :(

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
