Friday Funny: Mayor Urges Ugly Women to Move to Town

Facing what he sees as an extreme gender imbalance, the mayor of an Australian town has urged ugly women to move into town, assuring them they'll be able to find a man.

"John Moloney, mayor of Mount Isa in northwestern Queensland, told a newspaper his town was a place for 'ugly ducklings to flourish into beautiful swans' and called on the 'beauty-disadvantaged' to flock there."

"In the face of outrage over his remarks, Moloney stood by his comments, saying he did not mean to cause offence but wanted to highlight the gender imbalance in the remote town of some 25,000 people."

"Mount Isa city councillor Gary Asmus said that while there was a shortage of women, Moloney's comments were an insult to the town's menfolk."
