gandalf: Ginger was stuck up. You could, like, totally tell.

Mary Ann may have been hotter, but at least Ginger knew how to use her sex appeal – low cut evening gowns with the Jane Mansfield bra, breathy voice, a ton of mascara- and she macked with every guy on the island (except Mr. Howell, even though he was old and rich). Her dress even completely fell off in one episode.

All Mary Ann could do was bake a mean coconut cream pie and be way too happy about everything. It would have been refreshing to see a really pissed off Mary Ann, at least once

I'm not sure why you have to pick just one -- we are after all indefinitely marooned on a small island. Hell, throw Lovey Howell in there too. It would be about the only form of entertainment besides Gilligan's dream sequences.

That a boy Rich. I was going to complain that the two choices were a little too vanilla, there was no choice for both, no choice for Ginger picks Mary Ann and I pick a front row seat. Then Rich breaks out the possible foursome to include Mrs. Howell (a borderline gilf) and trumps me, way to think outside the box.

If forced to choose, Ginger wins on voice alone.

I am a Mary Ann man myself.

TG: I don't know how many beers you'd need to consume to move Lovey Howell into even borderline GILF territory, but I'd have to believe it'd be enough to land you in the ER with alcohol poisoning.

While the foursome idea is intriguing, you'd need to swap her out to make it less appalling. Of course, then you get into some fairly freaky territory involving either the Skipper or Gilligan. And, no, I'm not including the Professor because it's clear he was asexual.

Submitted by Aecetia on July 12, 2008 - 1:51pm.

After you get him out of the ER why not take him to a therapist. He is obviously either 1. working too hard or 2. drinking too much or 3. all of the above. Should we start a poll?

Holy crap, that made me laugh...

gandalf: For such an erudite, learned East Coast free thinker, you delve into some pretty earthy territory; you know that?

Submitted by jpinpb on July 12, 2008 - 4:05pm.

Even though I'm a girl, I'd have to vote for Ginger. She has great sex appeal. If I were a guy, I'd be getting slapped often. Stranded w/her on an island would be trouble.

But I like the idea of both. Pies and conversation w/cute girl nextdoor Mary Anne and a little workout w/Ginger. Nice balance.

Now as for the professor, he needed to get in the lab and come up w/some Viagra!

Didn't Dawn Wells (a.k.a. Mary Ann) get arrested lately for having too much weed in her car?

Submitted by gandalf on July 12, 2008 - 5:40pm.

Allan: Yeah, but some things are universal. ;-)

Like the Volvo XC90...

Oh, and Ginger and Mary Ann at the SAME time. I didn't even THINK of that. That's why Rich gets paid the big bucks...

BTW, who brought 'Lovey' into all this? OMG, that almost made me knock over my beer.

Submitted by Aecetia on July 12, 2008 - 5:55pm.

Gandalf,
Is TG with you?

Submitted by gandalf on July 12, 2008 - 6:27pm.

Who's TG? Nope. GDI... Independent.

...especially after the last couple of years. Shout out to my Ron Paul, and now Obama, friends.

Hey, isn't it great to be able to debate the oldest question in the bible (Ginger v. Mary Ann), on the same weekend Fannie and Freddie almost failed? These are strange times, indeed.

For the record, Gandalf prefers his wife. I know, lame-ass response. But my wife is definitely not lame. I strongly prefer my wife to Ginger or Mary Ann.

But not to Ginger and Mary Ann! That would rock.

(Sorry, chromosome kicking in...)

gandalf: If you put some nice merlot or chardonnay in your bong, along with some ice cubes, it will take away the harshness of the smoke...

Just a suggestion.

TG (temeculaguy) suggested we include Lovey Howell in a foursome. Rich brought Lovey into the thread as a possible "additional" choice for females on the island.

TG is a Chargers fan, which accounts for the rather depraved nature of his personality.

Submitted by NotCranky on July 12, 2008 - 6:49pm.

When did puberty kick in? I was unaware of Mary Anne below the neck, which is where it starts to get really good. Personality wise she was definitely more tolerable as a kid. I think Ginger appeals to an older Rustico too. It's a draw but different personalities would suit me well on both of them.

Submitted by gandalf on July 12, 2008 - 7:26pm.

Allan, man. Your memory's failing. You've been doing too much of that frozen cabernet weed ice cube thing. (You and Mary Ann both, incidentally. She did get busted recently.) Which is fine. I'm okay with that. Live and let live.

I had to check and Rich was one who brought up the Mrs. Howell thing, which to my mind just cancels out the lovely Ginger and Mary Ann bit, which was good. Good and bad in everything, I suppose.

Hey, how come females dig Lovey? Wow. Didn't know that. Not for me to understand.

BTW, with G v. MA, I really don't know and can't decide. Both are good. They could waterboard me and I don't know which one I'd pick:

CIA: "Drown him."

GDF: "Ginger! No, Mary Ann! No, Ginger! No, both! I give up!! <blurb,blurb>"

CIA: "Okay, stop drowning him."

Dude you totally know Mary Ann would do the sickest things
once you got her in the hut.

Ginger would never do greek let alone get a dirty sanchez, and
let's not even discuss airtightness or a donkey show

Weren't there monkeys on the island?

Keep in mind - in our very first poll, Piggington readers preferred the new polling function to sheep by a very narrow margin.

http://piggington.com/what_do_you_think_...

As far as Ginger / Mary Anne it isn't even close. Just think of the additional expenses keeping up with a high-maintenance girl like Ginger. Rich - can you make a chart of that ?

Submitted by Allan from Fallbrook on July 12, 2008 - 8:55pm.

patb: Easy, cowboy, easy. You're letting that motor run a little hot.

Mary Anne did have the "girl next door/librarian" thing going on, though.

Probably the best response on the board was from a girl, JP, you are the bomb. Can I pick jp and ginger?

Gandalf, no picking your wife, cmon. You can pick your wife to be with ginger or mary anne, that is an acceptable pick. In fact I may change my pick to that.

O.K. I got it. Marooned on a an island. Me, Ginger, Mary Ann, Wonder Woman, Princess Leia in the metal bikini, Loni Anderson (circa wkrp days), gandalf's wife, jpinpb and the female cast from dreamgirls (including effie), if there's a way to clone beyonce, her twice, if that can't be done, throw in a Jennifer Lopez and Angelina Jolie in the Lara Croft outfit. That's it final answer.

Aecitia, you have a green light to call my therapist.

Submitted by Aecetia on July 13, 2008 - 12:47am.

TG,
You would probably date your therapist, so she would not be objective enough. I give up on you. I think that gandalf picks his wife is charming. Something I did not think I would say about him based on some of his views. So I guess we all have some redeeming qualities, except for you TG. You are a definite retrobate. Go ahead and say what it rhymes with, you know you want to.

Submitted by Allan from Fallbrook on July 13, 2008 - 8:06am.

TG: If we're tossing in actresses circa "WKRP" days, what about Jan Smithers from "WKRP" and Catherine Bach (Daisy Duke) from the "Dukes of Hazzard"?

And you would pick J-Lo over Jessica Alba or Jessica Biel? Dude! Beyonce is definitely hot, but have you seen Teresa Randle or Gabrielle Union?

Lastly, Carrie Fisher was hot as Jabba's wench in the metal bikini, but I sincerely doubt you could have afforded that coke habit of hers.

Angelina Jolie is a good choice. MAJOR daddy issues.

Submitted by jpinpb on July 13, 2008 - 8:26am.

The question was between Ginger or Mary Anne. Though somewhat vague, I thought it meant which you'd want to have sex with, not a relationship, not who you'd marry.

Maybe if I were a guy I'd be the modelizer type. Watching the youtube video, they both are very appealing, but Ginger was extremely sexy and worked it (around 4:30, looks like she had a belly ring - back in the '60's!). Mary Anne would be your best friend/buddy, albeit very beautiful.

But personality, Mary Anne was sweet and nice and Ginger was the hottie that would do it. I keep remembering the one episode - and I don't know why I remember this one in particular - where she sang "I just want to be loved by you" whispering it. Man - who wouldn't want that!

They say you marry the girl next door. I wouldn't kick Mary Anne out of bed, either. BUT, I still stick w/my first choice - however ideally both ;)

I am VERY surprised that SDDuuude... Didnt bring up a conversation that we had on the way to lunch one day.

He posed this question to me and, for the record, I date a lovely asian girl named Maryanne.

I said dude! I have both! Ginger and Maryanne.

:P

Lucky me!

She cooks good too!

Mary Anne did have the "girl next door/librarian" thing going on, though.

She also wore "Daisy Dukes" before Daisy Duke!! (or an outfit more or less very similar)

Ginger struck me as one who looked like she would.. but wouldn't no matter what, unless you presented her with a diamond that only Howell could afford.. and you would only get 5 minutes.

Mary Ann struck me as one who looked like she wouldn't.. until you touched her just right, or said just the right thing.. then watch out.

O.K. I got it. Marooned on a an island. Me, Ginger, Mary Ann, Wonder Woman, Princess Leia in the metal bikini, Loni Anderson (circa wkrp days), gandalf's wife, jpinpb and the female cast from dreamgirls (including effie), if there's a way to clone beyonce, her twice, if that can't be done, throw in a Jennifer Lopez and Angelina Jolie in the Lara Croft outfit. That's it final answer.

One problem with too many females is that if you are nice to one.. all the others feel out of sort and complain. Should keep it manageable. Two is difficult enough.. 8-P

Ok.. I throw in two others to the mix.. Kathleen Bellar and
early Jennifer Connelly...
