Tyra Banks Scoop!
tyra-banks-talkshow.jpgNews flash! Bulletin! Read all about it!

Ace reporter Tyra Banks has revealed a Watergate sized scandal. It comes as a shock to the world that the fashion industry discriminated against Banks because of her physical appearance!

The fashion industry, a trade known for equal opportunity and employment, has allegedly caused Banks to be less of a multi-millionaire because she was "black and curvy."

Shocking! Appalling! Confounding!

I do not know how this practice has escaped the media for so long. It took Banks' Woodward/Bernstein-esque effort to uncover this travesty. How Banks toughed it out with barely making the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, Victoria's Secret catalogues and her own talk show, I'll never know. The bravery it must have taken! She's Jackie Robinson.

With this incredible revelation, I have decided to look into the rumor that the NBA is discriminating against those that aren't good at basketball. This unfair treatment must be quelled!

"I'm shocked! Shocked to find there is gambling going on in this establishment!"

I'll have to admit, the only reason that I never asked her out is because she is Black. It's sad, I know. I'm just glad to see that there are people like her to point out how much we discriminate against hot, curvy, supermodel types.

Yes, but it harkens to the lyrics of that inspirational tune:

"We shall overcome
By eating lots of pizza
And discussing a career change."

Just think how much more fame Banks could have achieved had she only looked like someone totally different.

Zoey,
I was going to write something in response to your stupidity, but I am now under the impression that you are as clueless as Tyra and so I wont risk wasting my time writing something that you won't understand. So I will just leave you with a big: You go girl!

Love Dave

Uh, okay.

said Johnny Wright on May 30, 2008 10:53 AM.

I disagree.

said Don't Swayze Bro on May 30, 2008 12:01 PM.

You disagree with what, Swayze? Poor Zoey?

said Johnny Wright on May 30, 2008 12:20 PM.

Unlike Swayze, I am in agreeance. You go grrrrl!

Dang. I'm confused.
Could we get some clarifications??

said Dave on May 30, 2008 12:52 PM.

I can't believe I've been sensored????? :)

said Dave on May 30, 2008 1:19 PM.

Dave, I'm just being agreeable in general. I will say on Tyra's behalf, she won't beat you up like Naomi Campbell. So that's happening.

said E on May 30, 2008 2:39 PM.

I disagree. More.

That last quote about being shocked...what's it from? If it's from the completely awesome sci-fi nerd thing I know it from, you'll have just won 1,000,000 Awesome Points.

Though, for all I know, it was quoted from something else to begin with.

said Mel on June 4, 2008 12:17 AM.

Excellent question. The quote is from Casablanca. It is said by Claude Raines' crooked character when he "discovers" illegal gambling going on in Rick's.

I just realized something. All of the people who post comments are generally well spoken and can actually spell. Kudos YBNBY
