This was an interesting question posed on NBC's Today this morning - would you take a million dollars, or would you rather instantly get Jennifer Aniston's figure. Obviously, this question about body image was posed to only women, but we all know that men are self-conscious about their bodies as well. So the question is, would you take what you consider to be the perfect body (guys, you can have Connor Trinneer if you want him), or a million bucks? Discuss.

For the record, those that Today polled responded 78% money, 22% Jennifer Aniston.

I don't think Jennifer Aniston's body is perfect in the first place.

She has the same "strange knees" (expert opinion of someone who shall not be named here) like I do - so I'll take the million bucks and keep my own imperfections, thank you very much! :P

I'd take a million bucks. Jennifer's too skinny anyway. I'd much rather have the figure of, say, Katherine Heigl or Claudia Christian. :P

I'll have the money.

Although this was not my thinking, it might be worth considering that the with the money you can pay for a whole bunch of cosmetic procedures and still have money left over. :P

Personally, I would take the million dollars and "rent" Jen's body for a couple of hours :naughty3dg:

I'm not sure I'd really want either... can I, like, trade the perfect figure in for store credit, or something? :P

My body isn't perfect, but I'm not completely out of shape. So I'll take the money. Plus, with that money, I can afford stuff that would make my body better looking eh :P

Ca$h plz. I'm operating under the assumption that with money like that, I'd have the leisure time to tone the flab. Even if I didn't though... still cash. :rolleyes:

Meh a perfect body won't get you any further than the cash in the long run. And I concur with the above statement that she isn't perfect by a long shot. As a great Starfleet engineer once said, "Every woman has her charms, you just have to find 'em" ;) But if I must choose I can use the cash please, Thanks. :P

Take the money. The girls appreciate the body enough as it is. B) If they really want me to I'll use some of the million to pay for full body hair removal, but other then that I like my appearence.

When I get the girl I want, I'll use half of the million to put a solid downpayment on a house, another 50 to 150 thousand to buy a nice car, then take her on a tour through Europe, down to Australia, or whereever the hell else she wants to go. Then the rest would likely go to college funds for the (hopefully) upcoming kids.

^ The idea is the perfect body, not necessarily Jennifer Aniston's.

I like my body.

Yeah, good job with that one.
