Headline Du Jour

One of the stories linked in James Taranto's piece (see update in post below): Men would rather date beautiful bimbos than ugly, clever women, finds survey.

Frankly, neither "bimbo" nor "ugly" attract me.

Bimbos are drop-dead gorgeous women who don't take life seriously; they live for the moment and regard men the same way they regard jewelery.

Few women really qualify as "ugly," even if one factors in the elderly. Most non-gorgeous women are simply plain-looking, and most of those can be pretty - the key is cheerfulness.

Update: The article uses Chantelle Houghton (pictured in article) and University Challenge star Gail Trimble (pictured in this bio) to illustrate its point. Trimble is not ugly, and Chantelle has a haughty look that nearly rivals Paris Hilton's. I can't stand haughtiness.
