Maybe they’re just grimacing in pain?
People, we know why we’re here. Our public relations firm has been hired by a bodybuilding association to improve their image, since focus groups tend to describe bodybuilders as freakish, grotesque, disgusting and hideous.
So. Who’s got some ideas. Lamar, you raised your hand?
Yeah Boss, I’ve got a suggestion. I think if we just got them to smile all the time while they’re onstage, people wouldn’t notice the rest of it.
Sure. Think about it. Everybody loves seeing a happy person. Look, let me prove it to you.
Okay, send that grinning creep show out here! Amazing, huh Boss?
Oh, yeah. It’s like night and day. Does anybody OTHER than Lamar have any ideas?
