News, but not the serious kind
You’ve reached the firm of Ponce, Bonache and Gotcha!
Blog Guy, do you stand behind the info in your photo captions? Is there a chance anybody ever pulls a fast one on you?
We do our best to check information, but my own personal suspicion is that sometimes people in Spain are having a laugh at my expense.
Can you give some examples?
Well, for instance, every so often we have photos of a bullfighter named Enrique Ponce. Get it? PONCE?
Look at this guy’s sissy outfit, then look up “ponce” in the dictionary. In British slang, it means “a pimp” or a “campily effeminate male.”
Wow! You guys got taken! Give me another example!
Okay, look at these Barcelona fashion photos from this past week.
The models are in so-called “creations” showing their bare headlights – you know, their bongos. I had to censor the photos to keep readers from going blind. Now look at the name of the so-called collection: Bonache.
Ulp! Wouldn’t that be pronounced BONE-ACHE?
I think so. Do you think this is really the “Bone-Ache Collection of Hooter-Flashing Fashion Creations?” I think it’s safe to say somebody in Spain has it in for me.
