Ballad of the bun-flinger gunslinger

January 26, 2009

Blog Guy, I need to know where I can find designer clothes appropriate for my profession.

Which is what?

I’m a gunslinger.

Awesome! Do you twirl your pistol?

Sure. With one finger.

What did you do before you got into this profession?

Worked at a Cinnabon, flinging buns.

So you’re a bun-flinger, one-finger gunslinger? You might have a look at this creation from Paris Fashion Week.

No thanks, I don’t have enough bullets to defend myself wearing that outfit at the gunslinger hangouts.

The initiation is fun! Join the Oddly Enough blog network!

Oooo, that netting! Those sparkles! Those pouty lips! Be still my heart… ROFL…. no, sorry. Can’t pull off enthusiasm for this. Can you see how hard the model is clenching his jaw to keep from bursting out in tears that someone dressed him up like this?

Hmmmm, very Monty Python, very over the top, very odd and doen’t he look pissed to be wearing such a get up?

What’s frightening is that there is actually money being paid for this – and in this economy! Could these designers be more out of touch with reality?

I’m sure they could, because take away all the theatrics and that’s a very nice tux.
