It makes Brough's Daddy very angry when his awesome posts get moved to General Discussion. No one reads the stupid General Discussion section and no one cares about any of the other sports. Honestly, does anyone go online to read about Poverty Ball? No. Women's Poverty Ball? No. Why you ask? Because all the poor people who play or care about Poverty Ball don't even know what the internet is let alone have internet access. And they can't get it for free anymore becuase NetZero isn't really for zero but that's a whole other ball of honey.

And next time you see my son slap him in the ass and call him Sally. He just loves that.

Sincerly,
Brough's Daddy

Not just you.

The reason it is creepy can be explained with the concept of "cognitive dissonance" .
When images or representations of human forms get close to the real thing but don't quite make it, we tend to focus on what's wrong, rather than how close it is. That's why it's often better to go for a representation that's further from reality- cartooney, even.


Google "the_Uncanny" and look at the wiki.

Then again, it could be the drool.

The King's crown and face I understand. I have seen it in burger king ads; the face beard and robe too. What stands out is the "drool" and the rapper hands with the knuckle buster rings. They don't fit with the rest of the burger king mascot. What we have here is a photo of someone in costume or a photoshop wiz.

Now combine that with the rant about "Poverty Ball" and you have me completely discombubulated. I did the wiki wiki on poverty ball and found this disturbing description in a discusion of Doctorow's Ragtime:
The Poverty-Ball Phenomenon

Or of Mr. Doctorow's version of the early 20th-century poverty-ball phenomenon: "Guests came dressed in rags and ate from tin plates and drank from chipped mugs. Ballrooms were decorated to look like mines with beams, iron tracks and miner's lamps. Theatrical scenery firms were hired to make outdoor gardens look like dirt farms and dining rooms like cotton mills. Guests smoked cigar butts offered to them on silver trays. Minstrels performed in blackface. One hostess invited everyone to a stockyard ball. Guests were wrapped in long aprons and their heads covered with white caps. They dined and danced while hanging carcasses of bloody beef trailed around the walls on moving pulleys. Entrails spilled on the floor. The proceeds were for charity."


The other concept of Poverty Ball is the one where kids too poor to buy a proper soccer ball make one of rags or some other makeshift material.

Both are really weird references. Almost psychotic but certainly more obscure than a Dennis Miller or Robin Williams reference, which are generally comedic in nature. I think most folks are comfortable with weird references when they are funny but are quite disturbed when they are just flat out psycho.
