This thread is useless without pictures. And cookies.
I've been told the sight of me in swimwear affects appetites too, albeit not in quite the same way as here.
The Burger King Effect.
"In the study, detailed in the Journal of Consumer Research, men alternately fondled t-shirts and bras (which were not being worn during the test)."
Awwwww! That's like finding out your Mom is a wire dummy with a bottle attached!
Those guys at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven really go for the big questions, don't they? Hey, let's research whether touching bras makes men value the present more and the future less, unless they're feeling wealthy? OK, but tomorrow we check whether sitting in hammocks makes it easier for girls to overcome existential angst, unless they're wearing fishnets.
It's all part of their research into Sin Development, Pleg. Now we can eat fish on Fridays, we have to be made to feel guilty about something else.
WARNING: Lame Statistics Joke
"men alternately fondled t-shirts"
And then they ran a T-test on the data! *runs off cackling, jumps under blankets with box of Fig Newmans*
Why did they only test men?
Because you can't fondle a conversation?
I hear it's a feature on the new iPhone. Still no copy/paste, though.
Damn, TUM, now I want some Fig Newmans. Man. I have a package of them at home. Fig Newtons, you suck. Paul's moist, tasty fig cookies kick your dried out, crumby, tasteless ass. BEATEN BY YOUR OWN CLONE! EPIC FAIL.

I have sent some of my findings regarding owl semen and hyperactivity in comatose patients to the Journal of Consumer Research. I await word on whether I will be published.
Yes, this is news. It's just a coincidence that companies have been using scantily-clad models in car and beer ads for decades.
