Oh, GREAT job, Geppetto!
Memo to fashion show staff: Well, we still need to slash spending for these shows. We’ve used dead models, but it turned out they don’t last long in the bright lights. We hired raccoons to do makeup, but who knew they’d have rabies?
Today, we’re going to be using life-like puppets instead of live models. Freddy SWEARS they look totally real, and nobody will catch on what we’re doing. If there is the slightest hint, we’ll be the laughingstock of Paris and our respected brand will be ruined forever…
There’s the music! Freddy, pull the strings on the first one. I’m SO nervous!
