Advertise On My Pregnant Belly
image So where will this trend end? We've had head-vertising, ass-vertising, and tadoos (okay, tadoos were a hoax). So it shouldn't be any surprise that one woman is pioneering pregnant-belly-vertising on eBay. Is there any part of the body that advertisers won't pay to plaster their message on? Probably not. But is this woman going to walk around with her belly showing? Even if it's cold outside? It is Winter, after all.

She looks 8 1/2 months along - the ad would anly be up for a few weeks

I should do hand-vertisments. I need the money for college.

If I owned a paternity testing clinic, I might advertise on this woman's belly.

Maybe I'll put an auction on eBay for advertising on my penis. The auction would be open to women only and the winner would be able to write her ad on my penis herself. Of course there would be times when part of the ad would be kind of scrunched up, but I promise to keep those times to a minimum. Should I charge by the inch or would that not make me enough money?

In that case, people would pay to see the blank billboard without advertising, if it were big enough. Myself, we're talking Drive-In Theater size, Stubby.

"Should I charge by the inch or would that not make me enough money?"
It depends. Would $2 be enough for you?

I was going to put some corporate logo on my belly and threaten to walk around with it exposed unless the company paid me to wash it off, but then I started wondering if I could get nailed for extortion or slander or something like that.
Posted by Big Gary C  in  Dallas, Texas  on  Sat Jan 29, 2005  at  05:55 PM
What I want to know is how she got the exposure? She's gotten over 28,000 hits, that's unbelievable!
Check out this fireman with body advertising!..<wink, wink!>

It's interesting to know that people would pay to have their advertisement on body parts.
