Lady, take the best spot on the beach!

April 20, 2007

Okay, nobody seems to think it’s bizarre that a model at a swimwear fashion show in Budapest struts out in a bikini, a garter and gun?

What kind of beaches do they have over there in Hungary, anyway? Because, call me a weenie if you want, but I kind of like to relax in resorts where a big Super Soaker is about the most dangerous thing around.

And besides, people who opt for this swimwear need to realize they’re going to have some pretty strange, pretty incriminating tan lines the next day.

Well, sure, because it is illegal to carry concealed in Hungary.

One of my fantasies is to experience a close shave with an armed Hungarian model.

If the revolver was just a little bit shorter I’d feel inadequate, instead of humiliated.

You mean, when Frankie said “You know, I can’t think of nothing finer than a fine naked woman holding a gun.”

This is quite an insightful odd news.

But when I thought about it a second time, the oddness melted away because it is really normal.

The gun has always been used by artists to symbolize the male private part or prowess and strength.

So for a Swimwear fashion model to have it is really cool because it adds to her sexiness.
