Guys, meet a real fashion model!

March 5, 2007

There was a time when being a model in Paris meant something glamorous, but today, when you can’t tell a haute couture runway from a set for the Addams Family, apparently things are different.

Guys, if somebody offers to fix you up on a blind date with a “fashion model,” it’s okay to ask some diplomatic questions before you meet her. Here are some that have worked for me:

a) By the way, do you keep a dial telephone on a Greek column at your house?
b) So, what do you think of that Sunset Boulevard movie, anyway?
c) Do you spend much time digging in your backyard?
d) Will your dolly be joining us for dinner?

So, are you chicks alone?

I can see where you got your good looks, little girl!

No kidding? I hate daylight TOO!!

I’ve dated a couple of “American Girls,” but they are so, like, conventional — you know?

It’s just “Joe” now — I dropped the “G.I.” thing when we invaded Iraq

I don’t believe I’ve met your sister … Mother!? NO WAY!

…preliminary marketing reports show the doll would be widely received, but some show concern about a child’s reaction to the spinning head and projectile vomiting when her string is pulled…
