Butch Cassidy sez: Bang your husband. Eat your greens.

I've been criticized here for not doing enough "Girl" posts. Well, I took a deep breath and dove into the latest issue of O, the Oprah Magazine. After recovering from the waves of panic attacks brought on by being forced to face my mortality on almost every page, I scanned this Newman's Own ad (click image). Be faithful to your spouse? Hey Paul, how bout you get your gnarled finger the hell out of America's bedrooms and go check on the pasta sauce?

It may not be a great ad, but all the money from his products, (after adminstrative costs,) goes to various charities. A LOT of children's charities.
And his products are really tasty too!

Go pick on someone else ;-)

maybe I'm nitpicking here, but didn't Paul Newman divorce his first wife for Joanne Woodward? Just saying... it's a dumb tag AND hypocritical, too??

It's a play on the question Newman was asked a long, long time ago.

Why didn't he cheat on his wife as so many Hollywood stars were wont to do?

He said, "Why go out for hamburger when you have steak at home?"

He is legendary for that line & his monogamy.

And no, he did not divorce his wife, Joanne Woodward.

oh his first wife -- maybe they were just staying together for the kids. People do that. Doesn't mean he's a man-ho.

Good dressings anyway.

Maybe the ad wasn't geared toward women at all but instead, the lonely, sexually frustrated husband who wants a Venetian, a Roman Emperor, and Cowboy all in one man but doesn't know where to find him...
