Uh-oh. The hyenas have stopped laughing…

October 18, 2009

Blog Guy, you’re always making fun of fashion designers, acting like you think they are worthless, gangrenous canker sores on the buttocks of society.

Wait. You think I’m just acting?

You seem to be all talk and no action. Are you actually DOING anything to make things better?

In fact, yes. I’ve trained my dog as a fashion critic. I take her to the big shows, and she attacks the worst designs, but only when the situation is extreme.

So she doesn’t really LIKE attacking designs?

No. She’d much rather go after the designers.

How much can one dog do to improve things?

Maybe not much, but imagine dozens of trained fashion-critic dogs going wild at a spring/summer show in Paris. And dogs on the catwalk are only the first step.

I’m afraid to ask. What would be the next step?

In a perfect world? Dingos. Hyenas. Jackals. Wolverines…

I don’t know Bob . . . pull this off, and I think that the attack dog bite suit will just become the hottest fashion of the season.

However, that would still be an improvement.

I vote for the wolverines!

Even if it the Wolverines from ‘Red Dawn!’

Just think! Patrick Swayze, brought back from the dead! Attacking zombies!

I’d pay a dollar to see that!

Sometimes I get my catch phrases mixed up. Sorry to the Canadian host from ‘Runner.’

Oops, I meant ‘The Running Man.’
