Come to North Dakota, where women have one thing on their mind.

The North Dakota Tourism agency has hired an agency based somewhere in 1977 to produce this ad, where two men in a bar sporting high fashion items such a teal shirt with the collar popped out on the blazer and those fancy zip-up boots ogle giggling women parading outside on the street. The headlines - there's two of them - reads

Dinner. Drinks. Decisions. Arrive a guest, leave a legend.

Since I don't even know where to begin pointing out the many wrongs here, I'll just point out the really funny. The lass on the left is clearly thinking "PENIS" in neon lights. Apparently, there are no men in North Dakota. Unless of course the women are the visitors and they hail from a place where one shops for men in windows. Sortof like the opposite of the red-light district in Amsterdam. A place where men are placed beind glass, frozen in fashion time, and fed beers until a lady pops by to use him for the evening. I'd like to see the tourism ad for that place actually.

Oddly the youtube channel that has all the ND "arrive a guest leave a legend" ads show no similar situations, but instead reveal that chocolate labs in ND are actually blue. How exotic.

    This is funny.

    Reminds me of my college days when I worked behind glass drinking beers until women would pop by to use me for the evening. I think that guy on the right is wearing my shirt.

    Well, Well! True Said Dabitch. Your article is just awesome and revealing the truth of Women in ND or what to say Noth Dakota. One thing I learned before I became a bestselling author and long before Inc Magazine voted my company as one of the fastest growing companies is that its good to read the revealing stories or Blogs.
