And now, the horn section!

November 14, 2008

Here we are. We’ve reached a point where a model can sashay down the fashion show runway wearing horns, and they just call it a “creation.”

And if you look closer, they’re not just regular fashion horns, they’ve got stringy stuff hanging off them that looks like the glop you scoop out when you carve your Halloween pumpkin. That’s probably exactly what it is.

“Sweetie, we’re going to the Eriksons’ for dinner tonight. They’re Vikings, you know, so could you wear one of your Viking outfits?

“Well, what about those expensive Viking horns you bought last month? You hardly wear those at all! Alright, I’ll run out and buy some more pumpkin glop to hang from them. Is canned okay?”

Those horns would go really well with my Viking pumpkin dress.

Just think! These horn drapes a thousand years ago would have rendered Anglo-Saxons speechless or, at least, totally stunned. Britain and all of the colonies would now be blue-eyed, blond and wearing horned helmets!

Moreover, the eastern Europeans, especially the Kazakhstanis would be a morphed culture. So much for dark, swarthy and sexy.

I really screwed up not making Eric more aggressive.

You sure it isn’t a George Lucas’ creation based on Dante Alighieri’s works? If anything, I’d rather call this outworldish… Sure not even Vikings couldn’t come up with anything so flamboyant…

Hideous. I’m really beginning to abhor these Kazakhstan fashion shows..

Very funny, Robert! It’s hard to believe people actually sit down and design these ‘creations’. I posted a link to this in my blog, because I just couldn’t stop smiling
