You gals work for the Lone Ranger, or what?

raccoon-140.jpgMemo to fashion show staff: I’m sorry, but times are hard. We need to cut costs any way we can.

We’re hiring a raccoon who studied as a make-up artist. Now, don’t be so negative! It’s only make-up, how hard can it be? Plus, when she’s not working, she can wash food in the cafeteria. We’re also getting a monkey to do hair. He only knows one style, but we can live with that.

If this works we’ll save a fortune, and I have other good ideas, as well. Two words for you to think about: haute couture and chimpanzees!

Oh drat. This is why my blonde teenaged daughter is going heavy on the eye makeup. Next thing you know they’ll be tattoo-ing their eyelids! Civilization as we know it is going bye bye…

Beauty is only skin deep. Or, applied directly to the skin. Um.
