Comment of the Week: KC Girl Hammers INK for Lame Hottie Contest

The KCC reader comments consensus re Ink’s Hottest Reader contest, as fleshed out this week by Tony: lame.

The KC Star-run weeekly panders to the young adults the newspaper fails to attract with lighter-than-air journalistic fare.

“Ink is looking for the hottest 20- and 30-somethings in the Kansas City and Lawrence area to star in our upcoming Hot Issue,” Ink asks. “Wanna get between our sheets?”

Lamely enough – to punctuate its point – Ink features the photos of last year’s Hottest Reader contest. Eating chocolate ice cream cones, no less.

On to our winning reader quote…

    Ink’s “Hottest Reader” contest is almost as lame as KC Magazine’s “Sexiest Singles.” Nobody seems to object to KC Mag’s contest, maybe because the magazine has so few readers.

    Yeah INK! What she said! All of us asexuals hate to see other hot people! What a disgrace! Did you know that PEOPLE Magazine is now copying off of INK? Yep, they put hot people in their magazine too! Before we know it, they will have magazines with NAKED people in it! As a professional and educated person, I have no room in my life to look at anyone attractive or anything that might be entertaining. SUCH A DISGRACE!

    So Ink is people magazine now? The point Bkmhoxx seems to be missing is is the hipness factor – or lack thereof – of Ink’s effort. It’s far from shocking or disgraceful – the chances of that happening while the Star in running the show are slim to none. But peppering Ink’s copy with the odd “F” word or reference to blow jobs or the like are hardly cutting edge.
    Come to think of it, be nice to see Ink take on some substantive reporting here or there to go with its fluff.

    why is the girls always objecting to the
    beauty contests/hottest girls/swimsuit contests/
    hot girls contests are usually big fat and ugly.
    We love beautiful people…we all spend billions
    trying to look good so when a maagazzine comes
    out with a hottest contest its always the girls
    who look like the south end of a north bound
    mule who object.
    I can’t wait to see the hot girls issue.
    I’m sure glazer will probably know them and
    already had sex with them before the issue
    hits the stands.

    hey kc girl…hot girls care about things…
    like the economy: will their temp service still
    allow them to go on unemployment.
    or the environment: will global warming cause
    my mascara to run when it gets above 96 degrees?
    or the country: I really love watching
    “green acres” on tvland…I love that farmer
    lady with the accent!
    but you kc girl are even stupid….saying..
    uncapped well spewing oil in the OCEAN?
    OCEAN…WHICH OCEAN IS THERE SPEWING OIL?
    better pull out that geography book from 8th
    grade or have daddy show you on the big globe
    where the oceans are….
    get real kc girl….stop being a prude.

    hey jojo, the Gulf of Mexico is part of the Atlantic ocean you dumb Ace. Just like how the Gulf of California is part of the Pacific. Or how your butthole is part of your greater behind area.
