You! In the bikini! Move to the left!

September 26, 2007

Okay, I enjoy lame as much as the next guy, but sometimes there needs to be a line in the sand. An appropriate expression, by the way, because the subject here is a beach.

To qualify for a Guinness world record, somebody got 1,010 bikini-clad women together on a beach in Australia. Does that strike you as being difficult at all? I mean, women in bikinis! Where else are they going to be?

What’s next in this person’s relentless quest for the impossible? Seeing how many dark suits he can find at the FBI? Counting Krispy Kreme doughnuts at NYPD Headquarters?

Well, I’m personally limiting my coverage of this “event” to just my blog posting, a slideshow, and some video footage. Enough is enough.

Hey! RECOUNT! Miss Second-from-left isn’t wearing a bikini!

(I mention this because I’m likely the only one actually looking at the CLOTHES.)

Raise your hand if you’d gladly dress like a frog in order to get attention.

Well, considering that I can’t gather one bikini-clad women on a beach, yeah, I’d say that was quite an accomplishment.
