Real Beauty…Fake Funny

I’m going to spare you one of my wordy posts today (YAY! all six of you who read this blog are shouting).

The following clip has been going around Teh Internets recently, and it made all the Girls of Megacube cry (Yeah, there was much sniffling going on at work that morning. Don’t tell our boss. Of course she’d cry too, I’m guessing). Anyway, it speaks oh, so eloquently about the way we as women see ourselves…and the way we should be seeing ourselves (and, I’m fortunate enough to be able to say, the way Mr. Bud sees me).

This parody response came out just last week, told from the male POV. It’s a riot…and even Mr. Bud admits that there’s more than a grain of truth in it.

I couldn’t find this next one on YouTube, but here’s a link to another version of the parody, with different drawings of the men:

Dove Real Beauty Sketches Parody II

You know, at first I was a little miffed that someone co-opted and parodied such a beautiful message, but the more I thought about it the more I realized that I needed to get a clue (and obviously, a sense of humor). It takes a lot of guts to so thoroughly skewer your gender as these parody videos do.

You go, guys and gals! We all rock, don’t we?
