Hey, I thought the Wizard was already married? lol



He is, but I still think he is a sucker for cute girls. Gives them too much benefit of the doubt for sure.

I am. But what middle-aged man doesn't have a eye that wanders a little?

Poor heyjude probably was paid $50 for "all rights" to her photo for the rest of her life. that's FIFTY dollars.

You can buy "stock photos" for advertising off the Internet at $10 per use (not per view, but per use).

The funniest use of a stock photo I ever saw was when Caesars Palace sent out a mailer for a shopping promotion in the Forum Shops. The photo showed a mother and daughter with their shopping bags, as if they were at the Forum shops. It was a stock photo. Ross, the liquidation/outlet company of discounted department store merchandise, uses the same photo in their stores.

It used to be that if you drove west-bound on Sahara there were billboards for a payday loan place and a dentist, about a block apart, and both used the same model of a smiling gal with perfect teeth.

that makes sense... she got the loan for the cosmetic dentistry. :-)

About four years ago, I did an infomercial for a lawyer referral service. The company wanted graphics with their phone number to include photos of accidents, photos of emergency rooms, photos of doctors and policemen... so we "bought them" online at ten bucks a photo. Whatever you want -- it's there for a fee.

Heyjude, by the way, might be an employee of the company. Many companies use their employees as "models."

I know a couple of girls whose pictures were ripped off straight from their Facebook profiles. They reported the photo theft, but nothing ever happened (of course). Pretty pathetic, if you ask me.



You don't report it. Who do you think you report it to? You get a lawyer and hit them with a lawsuit for a million dollars. You won't get that money, but you will get their attention.

I clearly remember watching a friend do something on the Internet in Montreal, and saw a banner that said something to the effect of "Singles in your area want to meet you." With it was a picture of HeyJude2222. So, add Montreal to the list of places she lives. Furthermore, I still see her picture here in Vegas, so she must live here too.



Wow, cute and wealthy enough to have homes in multiple states. You go girl !
Like the castle in its corner In a medieval game; I foresee terrible trouble And I stay here just the same
