New frontiers in advertising

Step right up and put your ad on Shaune Bagwell's boobies.

For $2,000 a month, you can put a tattoo of your company's logo across her chest. Bagwell is a pretty voluptuous bikini model, so there's room for a lot of logo.

The deal is up for bids on eBay right now. Click on www.eBay.com, do a search on "Shaune Bagwell" and you'll find it:

Ad Space on Swimsuit Model Shaune Bagwell's Cleavage.

Bagwell came up with this idea after watching a fellow model sell her used chewing gum on eBay.

"A man bought it for $20. I don't know who I felt sorrier for, the man who bought the gum, or the model who sold it," Bagwell said. "Models are selling their underwear on eBay. I thought this would be a funnier and more creative way to utilize my marketability."

Bagwell said the tattoo can be henna ink or body paint or whatever, just nothing permanent.

Here's the deal: "For 30 days, I will maximize the ad's visibility by wearing strapless dresses, low-cut tops and bikinis. I plan on attending Rockets games, walking at Memorial Park, and having lunches and dinners at high-profile eateries," she said.

The only advertising she'll refuse: "anything pornographic or including an obscenity."

Other than that, anything goes across her cleavage.

Her only regret is she didn't think of this sooner.

"I should have done this before the election. That could be a whole new frontier, political endorsements!"

I think I'll leave the politician/boob jokes as an exercise for the reader. In case you're wondering, yes, she was once married to Jeff Bagwell. And she'd probably prefer that you not look here. But here's the eBay link if you're curious. The bid is just over $10K as I post this. Ah, free enterprise.

That is not an entirely original concept. Boxers are routinely being paid to put advertisement tattos on their backs for maximum visibility during the bout.

I'll spare the visitors of this site the cliched to death making a boob of oneself jokes.
