Please write to The Grind (http://grindburgers.com/index.html)
and let them know that you find the ad so offensive, misogynist, and degrading that you won't patronize the establishment. Join the Facebook group "UNLV Boycott The Grind." We'll keep you posted about political action designed to get them to drop "Juicy Lucy" as a logo, or at least to get the Rebel Yell to refuse to accept the ad again.

That ad is just so awful that it might just convince Jim Gibbons And Siggy Rogich to change their watering hole/pickup joint from McCormick and Schmick's.

You people are so stupid. In this town yet where every woman is a whore per strip clubs?

You're filling this guy's place by putting up a stink. Shut up and grow up vote with your dollars because right now, you're only succeeding in filling his with them!


What's in YOUR hamburger?

From http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/04/health/04meat.html?_r=1&scp=2&sq=E%20Coli&st=cse


"The frozen hamburgers that the Smiths ate, which were made by the food giant Cargill, were labeled “American Chef’s Selection Angus Beef Patties.” Yet confidential grinding logs and other Cargill records show that the hamburgers were made from a mix of slaughterhouse trimmings and a mash-like product derived from scraps that were ground together at a plant in Wisconsin. The ingredients came from slaughterhouses in Nebraska, Texas and Uruguay, and from a South Dakota company that processes fatty trimmings and treats them with ammonia to kill bacteria."

No room for Lucy.

Really? If people are offended by that image they need to get the fuck out of Las Vegas.

Come on guys! This is Vegas!... if you have a problem with this... then GET OUT! Our town is filled with so much worse than this logo. I think you guys really need to get a day job and write about something more important than a logo. How about the Rebel Yell... who apparently accepted this advertiser and published it! If anything, there the one's who took the cash from this advertiser and has no issues doing so... GET A LIFE PEOPLE!

This was advertised at UNLV. We may still be in Vegas, but an sexist and Albert Fishesque advertisement should be in a school newspaper.

Yes, this was published in Vegas, the sex capital of the world, but we still like to maintain integrity within the university system-a place where we actively teach diversity--free of gender, racial, religious, and sexual-orientation stereotype and bias. Here, our own university publication is actually condoning this dehumanizing stereotype through its advertising, rather than discouraging it. Shouldn't our university newspaper help promote university ethics, at least to the point where these negative stereotypes aren't enforced? I think so.

Oh yeah, absolutely, the paper should promote ethics. In fact, they should start rallying against racism and ageism, then those who aren't of a certain political mindset then those of certain political parties. While they're promoting a certain agenda, which it is a newspaper's job NOT to do, why don't they also tell the students how to think or behave? It's a paper. They printed an ad people found offensive. It happens all the time. For God's sake--a woman designed it. You really hate it then boycott the restaurant. End of story.
Plus, I find it really weird that all of a sudden people expect college students who go to school literally one minute away from The Strip to see dozens of billboards and posters and shows with objectification and not say a word but then be offended that the school newspaper does something similar.

And the goddamn morons ran the ad again. YES Again on 10/22. That's it. I'm done. I used to look forward to reading the Yell between classes now just fuck 'em. Wonder no more about the maturity of the advertising whores over at the Rebel Yell. Thanks Rebel Yell for having removed all doubt.
