Awesomely Terrible: Boys vs. Girls…

In the red corner (pun intended), courtesy of Real Time with Bill Maher, we have The Young Cons, a couple of rising Dartmouth sophomores who seem to be trying to make being right-leaning cool. Too bad they don’t have the shiny hair and pretty smile of Meghan McCain

You can find the lyrics here. I’m not trying to say that I agree or disagree, just that they touch on some economic issues…

In the dumb corner (yes, I am okay with the lack of parallelism), courtesy of Kevin Bjorke via Facebook, we have…well, I’m not quite sure what this is. The series is entitled “Bored in Bikinis”, and the description says “The girls browse through magazines like Forbes to give their two cents on private equity, GDP, and IPOs.” Watch at the risk of your own IQ:

The best line: “I thought only guys like economy magazines.” Sigh.

So which is worse? The boys are ridiculously nerdy, which could go either way, but they’re a little too self-righteous in my opinion. On the other hand, I am annoyed at the girls’ video, since I had such high hopes for it to be totally awesome. Come on- it could have completely embodied the “economists do it with models” concept AND had girls in bikinis talking about economics. Clearly the world is not ready for that…double sigh.

    Nobody makes you shop at Wal-Mart, and nobody makes you watch bad videos in their entirety. Just be glad you weren’t one of the people watching Fox News (of course) when the Young Cons video was shown, since then you likely wouldn’t have the ability to fast forward or pause and move on to something else…

    I intended to create you this bit of remark to finally thank you yet again for these breathtaking methods you have shared here. It’s certainly tremendously open-handed with people like you giving freely all a number of people would’ve advertised for an e-book to help with making some profit on their own, precisely considering that you could possibly have done it if you ever wanted. These basics as well acted to become a great way to fully grasp that other people online have similar desire the same as my own to know the truth a lot more related to this matter. I’m sure there are lots of more fun occasions in the future for individuals who look into your website.
