And for meritorious underwear posing…

November 14, 2007

star-face-140.jpgAfter months of a J.D. Salinger sort of existence, the Victoria’s Secret models are back making real news again. We moved 15 pictures of them landing in a plane, as you saw in this blog yesterday, followed by 11 more photos and a video report of them getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Wait a minute. Don’t you have to be like Jack Nicholson or Meryl Streep or somebody talented to get one of those Walk of Fame star things?

Actually, that gets a little murky. Some of the coverage said they got an “honorary” star, which I guess may be a different kind, where you don’t exactly need to be Hilary Swank. It turns out the models also got an “award of excellence,” which isn’t given to just anybody. Or at least, not to just anybody who wears clothes.

There’s a dark matter joke here someplace but I just can’t see it.

If they could only make a man-girtle lighter than air, then they’d have something (that William Shatner might wear).

You couldn’t write a Hollywood Script this inconsequential. Because the Screen Writers’ Guild members are ALL ON STRIKE! Ahahahahaha.

Have any of you ladies considered working as writer/actors? Yes? Have any of you heard of a show called 30Rock? Wonderful!

I’ll have my people call your people.

One of the biggest shocks of my life was going into a Victoria’s Secret store, picking up something in size eight, and seeing what was written on the tag: “Large”.

Whoever Victoria is, she should shut the heck up.
