Turn on the shellac, Jack!

October 27, 2009

Okay cheerleaders, I think we can learn something from the fashion industry.

As many of you know, some design houses have started using dog groomers to style hair for their fashion shows, trying to cut costs in these difficult times.

So now we’re trying the same thing to get our cheerleaders ready to perform.

But we’re going to push the envelope a bit here. Not only will we be trying some nice doggie hairdos – see the upper left combo – but we’re also asking our groomers to get ideas wherever they can from nature.

Girls, line up for your turn with the stylist. Lamar, back that tanker truck of hair spray into the stadium, and hook up the big hose. This is gonna be like Pompeii!

You better be careful Blog Guy – it’s almost as if this is become a fashion blog.

Hair’s to you Blog Guy.

It’s not everyone who can associate a squirrel having a nut to sexy cheerleaders.

Robert, you can disguise it all you want, but it just comes out naturally: you are really paid by hair spray manufacturers who want to get this “guerrilla” marketing thing going and start a trend, right?!?

You know, I’m just naturally gifted to spot out conspiracies, like the one I was mentioning a couple of posts ago about white hats and death panels!

Thanks Shra, but they’re not collage – they’re NFL….

NFL squirrels? NFL hair spray? National Fashion League?

And here I was thinking they might be doing yet another remake of “Hairspray”…

I know you did, Shra. I was pretending I thought you were saying they were COLLEGE cheerleaders. It was supposed to be funny, but obviously failed.

Blame it on the weather, Bob… I find my acute sense of detecting sarcasm draining away…
