    Dear anonymous you are racist garbage. No one asked for your opinion on these girls looks — but while we are talking beauty you obviously are very ugly on the inside and although you haven’t posted your picture or even your name we can assume your ugliness is more than inside. Why don’t you show us how attractive you are so we can all admire a raging asshole

    honestly, its a good thing it happened to these two. hopefully they both lose the right to drive and are forced to walk a bit. its sad when you see a girl or two that you can tell might actually be attractive if they had any self respect and werent fat ass shit bags. its ok to succumb to the pressure of unobtainable beauty standards, at least it leaves you striving for something resembling acceptable height weight ratios. its not ok to be chubby, its just not. do something about your disgusting choice to be obese. instead of getting drubk with your fat friend wondering why no dudes wanna hit that maybe you should be hitting the gym.

        the two girls pictured are grossly overweight and it shouldnt be tolerated or accepted. gross as hell. youre not curvy. youre fat. why would anyone wanna be fat? why would any women maintain that mudshark body? only men interested in that unhealthy self harming life style that is obesity are black men, you dont want to attract stinky nigs do you? its just better to be fit and slim because thats what is healthy and attractive. otherwise stay out of the public eye. the rest of us have the right not to suffer looking at your tubby disgusting morbidly obese ass.

      hey! the city is trying to do things to improve the area, if you havent noticed they built the smallest event center ive ever seen and raised the roof a whole 6 feet to make it a taller but still mostly useless building. have you looked inside? theres almost no room in there after bleachers ect! its gonna work out man. when its built the stones are gonna be playing mason city. you did hear that this thing is gonna attract tons of new and interesting events and activities, right? i mean if you build it they will come. clearly all the good events and bands and acts so forth and so on have been skipping this cultural highpoint of the midwest that is mason city because we had failed in the past to build an event center that cant even hold a real concert crowd! once the event center hotel skywalk and low income ghetto apartments are finished all the greatest musicians comedians and entertainment entities will be bashing eachothers skulls in to get to mason city. we are gonna host ted talks and shit bro.

        Just remember how many people moved to town after the last ice rink was built. Maybe the influx of people could help out with the numbers the school district cant seem to figure out.

    You girls can now save your money on your 22lbs of makeup on your face!!! You both remind me of the 22lbs of makeup that Jodi Outwood used to put on her face in 1986 than go on the air and give the newscast for KIMT news station.

    No more highlights in your hair, no more fake bake, tanning sessions for you two, Unless Mommy & Daddy bail you out and front your bills. I serious hope that the parents don’t do this!!!

        Nancy: clearly you are not a child, teen, or an Adult woman in the 1980’s from North Iowa. If you have no clue on which Jodi I am referring to. Jodi H, Robyn W. all from the 90’s or afterwards, I bet you can’t even remember Doug Merbach who did sports, or what about Bob Clausen who did the weather with the metal stick to point where the weather was coming and going? Not mental at all in fact quite smart left Mason City 10 years ago. I would say to you this is the smartest thing I did so Duh!!!!! back to you Nancy

          I’ll bet you have left a long trail of people scratching their heads..wondering WTH you are talking about. Have you ever proofread one of your rants before you post? You might very well have a valid message, but if you post jumbled nonsense, who would understand it?

          Yeah, like for sure, you must be severely mental. And we all know that the weather comes from outside and because you said; “Bob Clausen who did the weather with the metal stick to point where the weather was coming and going?” So like you didn’t know the metal stick was called a pointer, so you must not be a person from any where intelligence comes from. Duhhh.

    I would expect the DNR to file charges for polluting the lake with gas and engine oil.
