College Football Cheerleaders: Philosophizing on the Female Sex

1 of 8

    Back when I was in my early 20s and working for a Mail Boxes Etc., I had a boss who always wandered around the store munching on an apple and espousing philosophy.  He would quote Jung and Freud. He would crack odd jokes that were originated by W.C. Fields. And when it came to cheerleaders for the Washington Huskies, his opinions were entrenched.  "Who would want to be known a Husky cheerleader? I know I wouldn't."

    In thinking back to that long-lost employer, I started flipping through a book of aphorisms looking for quotes about cheerleaders.  While I discovered a dearth of cheerleader material, I did find several great quotes about women in general. Combined with some game day images, a quick little slide show was born.
