És que a l'estiu se'ns esvera el Puigmalet. Tanta pota blava pel Prat, ja se sap. :-)

doncs ara hauria de compensar, o és que la intel·ligència masculina (i a poder ser heterosexual [no és per discriminar, però és que sempre acaben sent fotos sexis per tios, sigui quina sigui la seva tendència :P]) no és sexi? ^^ Jo la trobo molt sexi, mmmmm, per escassa? huas!

La mare que et va matricular! Quins enllaços més desagradables que poses!

Puigmalet ha dit...

Aquí en lloc de defensar-te, t'enfonsen. És una imatge promocional del web, o sigui que només il·lustra la font de la citació.

En canvi, ningú debat sobre si sexi o sexy...

L'enllaç te'l dedico de tot cor, ciutadà Cortès.

marc ha dit...

No hi ha debat. Sexi i punt.

Doncs jo trobo la noia aqueixa de les ulleretes molt i molt intel·ligent... :]

Per cert, estic d'acord: la foto no és masclista. En tot cas, la masclista és la famosa de la foto: la filòloga i etimòloga Marina Orlova. Considerada per molts la "geek" més atractiva de la xarxa, s'ha fet popular per explotar al màxim la seva sensualitat (i certes innegables aptituts genètiques) per parlar a YouTube de l'etimologia de paraules angleses.

Marina Orlova (Russian: Марина Орлова) (born 10 December, 1980) is a Russian philologist (although primarily an etymologist) who has become an internet celebrity, hosting one of the most popular channels on YouTube, HotForWords, and a corresponding website. She also hosts a bi-weekly radio show on Maxim Radio on Sirius Satellite Radio. The theme of Orlova's YouTube videos, which begin with the tagline "Intelligence is Sexy", and of her website is tracing the origins of English words. Some of her entries focus on common everyday words such as irony and OK, while others address lengthy and rarely used tongue-twisters such as floccinaucinihilipilification and antidisestablishmentarianism. Some entries also address idioms, including "let the cat out of the bag", "dressed to the nines" and "three sheets to the wind" or new words like the verb "to google". As a Moscow Times editorial observes, Orlova's success is not solely attributed to her pedagogical value:

Marina exploits her blonde-bombshell looks to the maximum: She appears in her two-minute clips scantily clad, pouting and making doe eyes. This is surely the main factor in her success. However, while the number of scantily clad girls on the Internet is limitless, not all of them put so much intellectual effort into their success.[1]

The channel became active in 2007, and Orlova has since been voted "World's #1 Sexiest Geek" in Wired Magazine's "Sexy Geek of the Year Contest" contest. G4 TV has similarly listed Orlova among its "Hot Women of the Net" on several occasions, and Cosmopolitan Magazine has identified her as the "most subscribed to YouTube guru".[2] Orlova has appeared on a number of Fox shows including on The O'Reilly Factor,[3] and was profiled on "The Medium", an internet feature of The New York Times Magazine.[4] In June of 2008, Orlova and radio personality Danny Bonaduce signed endorsement deals with "coComment".[5] As a G4TV profile of Orlova indicates, she received two degrees in philology from the Nizhny Novgorod State University in 2002, and taught English and world literature to high school students in Moscow, before moving to the United States to pursue further education.[6]

Està vist que no es pot ser guapo, que tot són crítiques. :-)

He he! He de dir (ara que ja he vist tota la col·lecció de fotos de la Marina a Twit-no-sé-què, la pàgina web HotForWords i alguns vídeos de la nena a YouTube) que la paia és més una noia pretesament espectacular que no pas intel·ligent... I sí, és MOLT masclista!

Puigmalet ha dit...

Ara que ho havies arreglat, casumdena!

Aquest darrer comentari ve de l'alt nivell de feromones a què t'has exposat. La lingüística russa ja ho té, això.
