A fashion taboo bites the dust…

October 14, 2009

Blog Guy, you know all the dark secrets of the designer fashion business, and it’s time to admit a fatal flaw.

I agree completely. Uh, which fatal flaw do you mean?

Oh please. There is a certain group in our society that is shunned. Due to petty prejudices, they are not allowed to create designs for the big fashion shows. You MUST know who I mean!

Ah yes, I guess you’re talking about the criminally insane. But you should know that some big shows are finally allowing this group to present their nutty outfits, under heavy medication of course.

For instance, look at the guy on the left. It’s as if Hannibal Lecter suddenly has his own designer label. More chianti and fava beans for the gentleman, please!

That’s awesome! So now that the criminally insane have been allowed to “come out” and participate, I guess we can expect future fashions to look a lot different, huh?

Nah, I expect them to be pretty much the same. Why do you ask?

Don’t be selfish. Send this post to someone you’d like to irritate!

Shunned by society as “inadequate” super heroes…the Freaky Four continued to patrol the streets in an attempt to keep them safe. Unfortunately, not too many criminals are really afraid of “Arm Growing Out Of Her Head Woman” or “Paper Mache Face”…

Could somebody kindly warn the person n the last picture that his hand-puppet fell off his hand? That’s a big inconvenience in these portable puppet theaters: walking can cause things to shift around and come lose quite easily!

She knows that, M… thats why she hurriedly covered her face.. maybe a well known personality who likes puppets…
Guess we should start a poll to try and guess who she is…
