Re: Editorial Cartoon Dec. 1

To the Editor:

This is a response to the editorial cartoon, regarding the irate student losing access to his "bigjugs.com."

I would hope that in future issues of The Gazette, those drawing the cartoons would do further research on the topic at hand.

In this case, the web site http://www.bigjugs.com does not really exist. In fact, the site is a portal to another web site (http://www.girls.com), where the girls on the opening page do not actually have "big jugs."

Although the company behind www.girls.com could be considered guilty of false advertising, I would appreciate it if The Gazette office would release a letter of apology to the student body, or a revision of the cartoon, with the caption quoting web sites such as http://www.largejugs.com or http://www.extremehardcore.com, which actually do exist.

However, in The Gazette's defence, largejugs.com actually has more text than pictures – in which case, the latter might be more appropriate.

Many thanks.
