Advertising works

I occasionally come across images that get variations on old advertising jingles stuck in my head.

Like this image, and the following jingle:

"Nobody makes / girl_in_a_cup / like Lip-tan cup of girl..."

(Images and advertising on the site may contain nudity. The corresponding links on the supposedly safe-for-work version, safebooru, are here, here, and here. The whole Lip-tan manga is available translated at the full danbooru but not at safebooru.)

Battle Cry

What Is Your Battle Cry?

Running out of the fields, brandishing a piece of chainlink fence, cometh Taper! And he gives a gutteral roar:

"I'm going to pummel you in such an unsafe manner, the devil himself will plead for mercy!!!"

Find out!

I rather like this one. Unsafe manner.

20 Question Personality

From Jenny Turplish Slapped Me :

You are an SECF--Sober Emotional Constructive Follower. This makes you a hippie. You are passionate about your causes and steadfast in your commitments. Once you've made up your mind, no one can convince you otherwise. Your politics are left-leaning, and your lifestyle choices decidedly temperate and chaste.
You do tremendous work when focused, but usually you operate somewhat distracted. You blow hot and cold, and while you normally endeavor on the side of goodness and truth, you have a massive mean streak which is not to be taken lightly. You don't get mad, you get even.
Please don't get even with this web site.

(Seen at jmaynard's LJ.)

Any opinions on this, O people who know me?

I like.
You are Apple Dos. Simple and primitive with a good understanding of the common man. You're still a work in progress, but a good start.

Kinda sad, really. I always had an ambition to be a great world traveler, and I haven't left the continent or even been to Mexico. Ah, well.

Mythological forms
You are Form 1, Goddess: The Creator. "And The Goddess planted the acorn of life.
She cried a single tear and shed a single drop
of blood upon the earth where she buried it.
From her blood and tear, the acorn grew into
the world."
Some examples of the Goddess Form are Gaia (Greek),
Jehova (Christian), and Brahma (Indian). The Goddess is associated with the concept of
creation, the number 1, and the element of
earth. Her sign is the dawn sun. As a member of Form 1, you are a charismatic
individual and people are drawn to you.
Although sometimes you may seem emotionally
distant, you are deeply in tune with other
people's feelings and have tremendous empathy.
Sometimes you have a tendency to neglect your
own self. Goddesses are the best friends to
have because they're always willing to help.

What Azumanga Daioh Character am I?
You are Sakaki-san! I want to meet you. In fact,
everyone does. You're the coolest person out
there. You are just inherently cool. But...
you wish you weren't. You'd give it all up for
being cute. Really really cute. You become
obsessed by things and focus on them 100% of
the time... and never with any results. You
get easily embarrased and are very shy. You
rarely feel comfortable in your own body. You
try to protect your friends, and you always win
whatever you do... without even trying. You'd
like to be good with animals, but they ussually
just use you... and sometimes abuse you. But
they are the most important things in the
world, along with cuteness and emotions. You
tend to try to hide your inner shyness with a
mask of indifference, but really, there's
nothing to hide. You are just really cool.
Your best friend would be a Kagura, and you
should defenitely go into whatever field suits
you best. You are good at everything, so just
do what you love doing!

The Azumanga Daioh Character Quiz
brought to you by Quizilla

This is possibly the most flattering poll result I've gotten.

People should watch this show. (Fansubs are out there, but it's been picked up by ADV so they may be getting rare and you might wait for the DVDs.) Also they should read the manga it's based on - little quick four-panel gag strips, mostly, which gives the anime something of the pacing of the old Charlie Brown and Snoopy show - kind of disconnected storylines, but funny and nice.

(This series is very low on giant robots, martial arts, and magical girls, but high on cuteness.)
