This is, of course, an ad for pork. I can’t believe it took the industry this long to help us females make the important connection between clear nail polish and pork tenderloin.

Then again, maybe we should have figured this out on our own. I mean, after all, clear nail polish is the “estrogen equivalent of duct tape.” As for a pork tenderloin, one “can fix just about anything with it lickity-split too—Asian Grilled Pork Tenderloin, Hawaiian Cobb Salad…” I mean, let’s not mince words: you can basically forget about snaring a husband sans pork and polish.

Not sure which makes me gag more, the kicker (“The Other White Meat and clear nail polish. Two handy-dandy things I can’t live without”) or the very pink color of the raw pork in the ad, which if I am not mistaken looks unnaturally pink…

Found on Salon’s women’s blog, Broadsheet. Originally spotted on Copyranter.

HERE ARE THE FACTS:

Our fall fundraising drive is off to a rough start, and we very much need to raise $250,000 in the next couple of weeks. If you value the journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us do it with a donation today.

As we wrote over the summer, traffic has been down at Mother Jones and a lot of sites with many people thinking news is less important now that Donald Trump is no longer president. But if you're reading this, you're not one of those people, and we're hoping we can rally support from folks like you who really get why our reporting matters right now. And that's how it's always worked: For 45 years now, a relatively small group of readers (compared to everyone we reach) who pitch in from time to time has allowed Mother Jones to do the type of journalism the moment demands and keep it free for everyone else.

Please pitch in with a donation during our fall fundraising drive if you can. We can't afford to come up short, and there's still a long way to go by November 5.
