Skimpy bikinis, lots to think about!

April 29, 2009

Hey Blog Guy, it seems like you’re always sort of making fun of fashion models. Why don’t you just once listen to what they have┬áto say, and learn something?

That’s good advice. It so happens we have a video report on supermodel Bar Refaeli, who was the cover model for this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. She must have something to say, right?

I watched the entire two-minute report, so you don’t need to, and here are the best quotes – the ones that really made me stop and think:

“I’m always on the go. I travel a lot.”

“People have a tendency when they shoot me to put me in very little clothes.”

“I’ve tried on thousands of bikinis.”

“I will make my dream come true and find the perfect little bikini.”

So there you have it, a supermodel with a dream. And by God I bet she finds it, and I bet she sells it for $120.00. At least that’s what the video says.

Mr Bob,

At least it isn’t the pic of that anorectic babe that you had on here in this most informative and valuable blogsite the other day.

Thank you for not making my eyes bleed! Today, at least.

I believe you showcased a couple of dresses a few weeks ago that would look just divine on her. I can’t find that particular post at the moment but you remember them? They required an assist from one arm.
