This pisses me off:

#1. Happy with your body? You shouldn't be! You're an emergency!

Do *You* Need A Boob Job?

#2. Surgery or a few products should be able to help you with that boob problem you didn't know you had!

#3 You're boobs are societally sanctioned, but the time to start worrying about them is now!

#4 And honey, you're just fat! How do you get through a door sideways?

Of course, there's this handy little disclaimer on the site, designed no doubt, to shut up the feminists:

This quiz is a parody of wacked out cultural standards! I do not recommend getting a breast job or surgery at all!

But it doesn't look like much of a parody to me. The site is full of links to porn sites, labelled "see how your breasts measure up." And there are popup pyramid-dating-schemes which start opening when you reach the results page.

I took a couple other quizzes on the site to see if they had the same ads and links. It seems that the ads are related to the content of the quiz. The "what kind of car are you" quiz has automobile-related advertizing; the "what sex sign are you" quiz has astrology and dating service ads; and the "do you need a boob job" quiz has things like this:

Best selling natural breast enhancer Bloussant contains Saw Palmetto Extract, Fennel Seed, and Don Quai.


Some parody. Looks like it's perpetuating those "whacked out cultural standards" for profit, not parodying them.

I took out the links to the quiz because I didn't want to give them or their advertizers any more traffic. But I'm sure you've all seen it.
