Putting the sass back into assassination?

October 23, 2008

Blog Guy, I know you’ve helped a lot of people with fashion requests.

Well, a bunch of us gals have formed a death squad. You know, nothing fancy, just small assassinations, some vigilante bake sales, Tupperware incursions into blue states, stuff like that.

Of course, we’d like to look good – we’re about being sassy, not slovenly, and we may run into some hunky guys in a male death squad. Any ideas? By the way, don’t even TRY finding out who we are!

Um, did we used to work together? Anyway, have a look at this creation from a fashion show yesterday in Mexico City. It hides your identity, but not your figure. Wait a couple of months, and the outfits will go on sale after the festive holiday death squad parties.

Grow more hair. Join the Oddly Enough blog network!

Funny enough, basically.

But why there are only, seemingly female, starving stick insects on the catwalk instead of human models ???

N. Rau, they’re attractive to most people. Guess what? Even if you’re a little overweight, you’re probably attractive to other people. Don’t belittle someone because they’re skinnier than you and are a lot more physically fit. It just makes you sound sad.
That said, I wonder if the main objective was to just showcase the jeans, or are the ninjas tired of only the pirates having wenches.

Hey! That one on the left is my wife! Actually, this is a variation on a pretty standard mode of sex appeal– the anonymous, interchangeable, (often mechanistic), promiscuous woman.

Tree huggers will be thankful they don’t need a bag.

Ha! Blog guy, what would you DO without high fashion to give you these great “tell me they’re KIDDING” posts? They aren’t kidding, of course. They’re in *deadly* earnest, and for my part, I hope they never stop — because I love these posts.
