“Hit me with the stench, wench!”

October 29, 2007

It can be awkward when you go pick up a blind date you met online, and she comes to the door with garlic hanging from her hair. You start wondering what a nice, sensitive guy would say, and you come up with stuff like:

  • “Yeah, I smelled you from the street, but I’m desperate!”
  • “I see you’re all ready to try out that new vampire bar.”
  • “Ah, when you said your hair smelled of cloves, I pictured something else.”
  • Awesome blouse, you reeking stinkfest garlic goddess!”

Once again, Sarah thankfully misses being the pumpkin wreath model.

Wait for it. She’s going to demonstrate garlic crushing, Hungarian style (so cool).

Despite the pathetic dowery, I think she’d make a fine bride.

If I can forget my glasses on my forehead and my pencil behind my ear, Chef Gina can be excused for forgetting her garlic in her coiffure.

No, monkeybrain, it’s a head of Lettuce I wanted you to paint. How does anyone get Garlic out of any part of that?

This designer seems to have a food fetish.

So, all comments are very funny…but do u know the story of this collection! No, I don’t have a food fetish, but I’ve got a good imagination. Why McQueen can have show with paint spraying mashine, why Galliano can have show with Jesus details. Cause when u are designing, they all have a serious conception. My conception was the Vamps. Want to see more, and not just the garlic…
