Moms don't appreciate boobs billboard
BOISE, Idaho, May 3 (UPI) -- Two moms in Idaho don't appreciate the humor of a radio station's billboard depicting two goofy morning show hosts' faces pasted over a woman's breasts.
The billboard for radio station 96.9, "The Eagle," in Boise, Idaho, proclaims "Two Boobs in the Morning" in an attempt to draw attention to the syndicated Bob and Tom Show, program manager Scott Souhrada told CNN. But Carrie Dayley and Kayla Mooso say its sexist and inappropriate.

"I don't want that tolerated in my community," Dayley said. "I don't think it's appropriate anywhere, really."

Souhrada said the morning show is geared to men 25 to 54 years old and the billboard at a prominent intersection was meant to attract them. The woman shown on the billboard is clothed but bares ample cleavage. Souhrada said there's other advertising around that is "much more provocative," CNN reported Wednesday.

But Mooso objects because she can't avoid it as she can other media messages she finds objectionable. She said her two children don't find it humorous, either. "My 7-year-old said 'Mom, that's gross. That's immodest,'" she said.

Oh please...that sign is harmless. I wonder if these Moms breast fed in public. Nothing wrong with that, either. Boobs are just boobs....I know, that's profound..ain't it? ;\)

The ones that are offended probably don't have much to offer in the boob department. Now if my memory serves me correctly, SBJ isn't one of those ladies... \:\)

Sounds like we've found the Bible-Belt West.

I think that's cute, a play on words. And you're right a 7 year old probably said what she heard.

BOISE, Idaho -- A Boise radio station decided Wednesday to take down a billboard advertisement promoting the Indianapolis-based "Bob and Tom" radio show after people complained it was too racy, a representative said.

The billboard showed likenesses of the show's hosts, Bob Kevoian and Tom Griswold, strategically placed on a tight T-shirt covering a woman's chest.

"'The Bob and Tom Show' did not create this billboard ad but support their Boise affiliate in their decision to discontinue using it," the show said in an e-mailed statement Wednesday afternoon.

Some parents said they were upset that their children were seeing the ad.

"My kids both saw it and my daughter is 7 and she said, 'Mom, that's gross, that's immodest,'" Kayla Mooso said. "I think that's against my parental rights because I can't turn it off like I can when I choose not to buy a magazine or I choose not to go to the back of the video store."

Before the decision to discontinue the ad was made, Scott Souhrada, the program director of the Boise station that carries the show, said he thought the billboard spoke to the audience he is trying to reach.

"The audience for 'The Bob and Tom Show' is predominately men 25-54 and we thought that would appeal to them and attract their attention," Souhrada said.

The radio show originates at WFBQ in Indianapolis.

Well I hope she puts blinders on her children and keeps them away from beaches, malls, well...just about everywhere with summer approaching.

...and a seven year old using the word "immodest"...hmmmm...I could buy the "that's gross part", but the word "immodest" just seems a little mature for a 7 year old to use.

All this does is perpetuate the idea that a woman's body - specifically, her breasts - are "dirty" which is ridiculous. They are BREASTS for chrissakes. What's really sad is how ashamed women are of their own bodies.

I remember an item back in the early '80's-starlet Pia Zadora-anyone remember her?-had a rich husband who was promoting the hell out of her non-career back then. He put up a huge billboard of the pint sized nymphet wearing, oh, two band aids and a hockey puck or something-and the billboard's location, near a sharp curve on a busy highway-caused multiple car accidents until complaints caused it's removal. The Bob & Tom show is hilarious-the billboard hasn't caused any accidents-every body should just calm the hell down.

What is really sad is the ones that should be ashamed of their bodies are the ones that are not.

Whats even worse is we can't enjoy them as nature intended, lest we be labled filthy perverts.

Now that is the real crime!

Men are NOT dirty!
