That's pretty good.
Love is like a magic penny

if you give it away you'll have so many
they'll be rolling all over the floor

by pretty good you mean hilarious, right?

I dunno. It's kind of cheap humor but I did laugh. The fact that it is possible and they did it is bittersweet funny.

It's not cheap if you're immersed in the mess that is outdoor sports imagery. Those sorts of images are classic advertising and they're pretty sexist and annoying, and a lot of people are frustrated by how ridiculous they are and that a lot of pros play along with it because they depend on sponsorships to survive.  The fact that a gear company like OR came out and said "hey this is sexist, stop doing it" is laudable and pretty surprising.

Especially a crossover company like OR which depends a lot more on imagery and a lot less on reputation of specialty gear quality. This isn't Mammut or Petzl.

She's too cute to be hanging out with a pinhead.
Inorite!
