Default Another Question: Where do the "attractive" people

Starting with myself, and moving upwards from there, I have to ask the question..... Why are cruisers butt ugly? You know what I'm talking about.... I'm just saying aloud what everybody else is thinking. Peruse the photo galleries, view the profiles.... I rest my case. I know beauty is in the eye of the beerholder, and beauty is only skin deep, but where are all the models and "silver foxes" that bedazzle the cruise brochures? Where are the celebrities and beauty contest participants? Why don't they cruise when I cruise? It makes me want to ask for my money back, I feel so cheated. I mean, I'm paying good money, and is it too much to ask to be surrounded by attractive people? Is there an "agent" on the gangway stopping people? "Sorry ma'am, but you belong on the good-looking ship". "Sir, you are under the weight guideline for this sailing, sorry". Are cruise discount vouchers being covertly distributed at Jenny Craig? Do trailer parks empty out during cruise season? I know where they got me, I just wanna know why so many cruisers look EXACTLY like me, and what the cruise lines are going to DO about it.

What are you talking about? Sounds to me like you have a real problem. I dont care if a person lives in a mansion or a trailer. They are still people to me. That goes for looks to. I guess you think if people are not born beautiful they should not cruise???? Get a life.

Cruise Cynic is called "Cynic" for a reason. I for one, appreciate his sense of humour, and the rest of you just take yourselves too seriously!
By the same token, when you buy a beautiful outfit from the Sears catalogue, does it automatically make you look like the fashion model? Hmmm?

Looks like someone else needs the dictionary as well.
All those beautiful people are stored in a warehouse in Manhattan. They are allowed out to shoot commercials, movies, and print ads. They are also allowed out to attend parties thrown by Lizzy Grubman in West Hampton. The women are allowed to be photographed with Justin Timberlake and the men are allowed out to accompany thr Hilton sisters (and appear in their videos). They are then placed back in storage.
These people are not real. You don't see them at work, shopping in a store, riding a train or sitting in church. You didn't go to highschool or college with any people from the beautiful people warehouse did you? No! That's because they only exist on film, in magazines and on TV and movies. Then they go back to the warehouse. Ever gone to Sandals, or Grand Lido? No bevvy of bikini beach bunnies and ab ripped hunks, just
average folks with beer bellies and love handles.
Another theory, There are no real beautiful people, they are all simply digital effects .

While looking up "satire" , also check around on the ground, some of us have apparently dropped our sense of humor and need to look around and pick it up.

Papa Bill and Cruise Cynic "get it". I'm surprised they let Shelley Winters have a role in the "Poseidon Adventure" - seems to me one of those skinny new blonde stars who all look alike could have saved that ship! After all, there was just a movie with Meg Ryan as the owner of an NFL team! Now, THAT was believable!

Fortunately for me, I'm perfect.....when I board the ship they beg me to pose for photos, they beg me at dinner, leaving the dining room and with pirates. I must be perfect!

Good stuff, guys!

EXCUSE MEEEEEE…Are you saying my wife is ugly? And I don’t have good taste? The people I cruise with are an exception I guess…I’m no beauty, but I’ve seen some hubba-hubba drop jaw gorgeous people. I have considered buying their photos instead of my own in the photo gallery on board…That said, I still have the picture, that came with the wallet, to show I do know some good-looking people.lol

Cynic, it is not just the ships. I was in the mall the other day waiting for my wife, and all I saw were hundreds of ugly people. Surly there must be some beautiful people somewhere besides on TV and movie screens.

However, the people I saw were real and all have beautiful souls.

I know where there are 100,000 beautiful people every weekend. Just follow the NASCAR races and you can find them in the stands. They don't have enough time to make it back from the track to go on cruises. <VBG>

Well I don't know where all the attractive people are, but I know where a lot of them are. They're down here in Texas and they vacation at Billy Bob's.

The fat attractive people are here in San Antonio, and they vacation at all the great Mexican resturants. I just had dinner at one!

Do you live in San Antonio? I had never been there before last week. Being the HUGE Laker fan that he is, Hubby and I went for the Laker/Spurs game. I was very impressed with the Riverwalk. I loved it. Unfortunately, we were only there for 2 nights (and one was spent at the game). There were so many restaurants to choose from, and we ended up having dinner at Boudros. We will definately make another trip to San Antonio for a much longer stay.

Laurie, San Antonio is a great place to live, and I forgive your husband for being a Lakers fan. We will beat the Lakers next year after their team breaks up. I wish them well in the rest of the playoffs.

I do hope you get to visit our town longer in the future. We also have a lot of cruises going out of Galveston now, and it is about a 4 1/2 hour drive.

Sixteen day trans-Atlantic from Copenhagen on Grand Princess in August for our next cruise.

Who are the attractive people? You mean celebrities? You think they are attractive?

Look around you. The attractive people are right next door to you. Right in your own town.

If you suddenly had all the money in the world and you bought everything you could possibly buy, then what.. If you had no friends, like the people next door or in your town, then you would find out that you had nothing.

Where do all the attractive people go? They go wherever we go because we are all the attractive people.

Some of the posters are a bit slow on the uptake aren't they.

The original post WAS A JOKE !!!

Now that I have spelt it out( since some of you did not in fact bother to go to a dictionary and find out what " satire" meant.) I hope we won't have to read anymore " beauty is in the soul " posts.

Lighten up folks.

I know. That's why I posted it, as an experiment.... to see how long it would last in a stifled environment. I am actually quite amazed it stayed up as long as it did over there, considering how obtuse addicts can be! And imagine the utter genius of figgerin' out it was the Cynic doing the posting. No s**t Sherlock. Two pats on the back for you, and a doggie treat. Maybe "Sherlock" reads CruiseMates when he gets bored... here I used my real nick.

Now you know why I like CruiseMates so much. Intelligent people. Intelligent Admin.

BY THE WAY FOLKS:
I am quite content being called "butt ugly" to my face (just remember to duck). And those I associate with, to the last one, are also officially butt ugly, even clock-stopping ugly. Watch out. We're taking over.

The only exception is my 16 month old.... she's officially a "Princess For Life".

If you don't agree, you answer to the Duke brothers. "Lefty" and "Righty". And my legal team: Smith and Wesson.

You can get away with "Butt Ugly" if she can pour herself into "Rocky Mountain Jeans" and he can dress like the "Marlboro Man". That's how it works down here in Texas.
