News, but not the serious kind
Fashion? That’s right up my alley!
Confidential memo to fashion show staff: I hate to say it, but some of our creations for the upcoming show are kind of, well, to use the technical term, crappy.
Then, we keep the photographers 300 yards from the designs – we’ll say it’s for their safety. You know, like the models have a fatal, contagious disease or something like that. Herb, can you get the girls to sneeze and retch and barf a lot?
We’ll also mention that fashion readers are more interested in dark bricks and shadows than actually seeing clothes, and we’ll sell the whole thing as artistic! Call me a cynic, but I’m willing to bet somebody will use those photos!
