Lips the color of bug-splat on a windshield

February 23, 2009

Mr, Johnson, the police are very grateful for your help, since you’re the only witness who has come forward about the murder.

May we please go over your description again? I can’t believe our sketch artist got it right.

You say the murderer was a woman, with dark hair “cut just like one of the Stooges,” and yellow lipstick? YELLOW?

Okay, and it says here the woman you saw “had dark crap all around one eye like a raccoon.”

And if I’m reading your statement right, this woman was wearing “white chintz curtains?”

Now think back, Mr. Johnson. What was it that made you think this Stooge-haired, yellow-lipped, coon-eyed, curtain-clad woman might be the killer?

I could never be a fashion designer. I have way too much taste for that.

Not enough taste for anything else, but waay too much to be a fashion designer.

Sure, you can say that now, Dee, but come next fall you’ll be in line to buy exactly this outfit.

My cat loves to unravel the toilet paper. He made a similar design just this morning. Next time I’m gonna take a picture and see if I get this thing into mass production!

First I have to get to the store to pick up some more toilet paper.

It appears that designer Jose Castro is from Clownlandia, the part of Clownlandia where the creepy clowns come from.
