These Flagships hurt my feet!

December 3, 2008

Blog Guy, I don’t know what to get my girlfriend for Christmas. Any suggestions?

Sure. How about buying her a Flagship?

A what?

Well, I just saw some photos that said Victoria’s Secret opened a new “Flagship store.” Judging from this picture, I gather a Flagship is a large pair of scissors.

You’re an idiot! Why would my girlfriend want scissors big enough to cut through solid steel?

Just for the shear enjoyment? Hang on, I did some more research and it turns out a Flagship is a red dress…

You researched nothing! How do¬† you know Flagships aren’t a brand of shoes with stiletto heels?

I think you’re right! I hope your girlfriend enjoys her shoes. I’m going to write a Flagship article for Wikipedia now.

Stick it to the man! Join the Oddly Enough blog network!

Would a joke about a flagpole be appropriate?

I’m guessing no, Tim.

isn’t this just a waste of an article? Seems like the publisher/writer is stretching for material.

Why does this picture bring to mind an M. Night Shyamalan film?

I hope they get eaten.

A flagship store is where you go when the ship hits the flag- the only thing for a flagging ship is a flagship store. Chicks in red kind of help the situation considerably, strangely enough.

I’m confused. They’re wearing … clothes.

Run it over with a flagship and see if anyone salutes.

As usual, two blond women, four light-colored women, and the token dark colored woman, the only one with black hair. Of course they are all pretty (pretty damned skinny…)

Be careful not to couture fingers with those scissors.
