Just another topless model?

November 11, 2009

Blog Guy, my girlfriend gave me a gift certificate for my birthday, and I’m treating myself to some nice new duds. I wanna be right up there with the latest fashions. What should I get?

That’s simple. Shop around for a nice shirt, and then don’t buy it and don’t wear it. Just go out shirtless.

No shirt? You don’t understand. My neighborhood Applebee’s won’t let me through the door without a shirt.

They’ll have to. Just show them this picture from a fashion show a couple of days ago. It’s 2009, baby! If you’re wearing trousers and shoes, that’s enough.

Amazing. And the chicks are okay with this look?

Well, they don’t seem too upset in this runway photo. Look, one woman has actually lost her mind and started to clap, like she’s at some fricking Chippendales revue. She seems a little too easy to entertain, if you ask me.

Bob,Isn’t this the same guy that was being inspected by the military doc? He put his pants on and now he’s a model!BTW – I received your invoice. I’m sorry but, since you started charging me $1 to post comments to your blog 😉 I’m afraid I can no longer afford contributing my little droppings of humor here. I have to choose between this and the meds, although, I am feeling a little better today. Hurry up, public option!

Blog Guy – I took your fashion advise but got slightly mixed up. Shopped around for nice pants, and then don’t buy them and don’t wear them. Just went out pantless. My neighborhood Applebee’s won’t let me through the door without my pants, even though I showed them the fashion picture. Do you think this is anyway to treat someone?

This is the worst example of exploitation I’ve ever seen.

Ok, so Im a big guy, and I have moobs (man boobs). So if I walk around shirtless is that ok? Sounds fair to me, heck might as well take off the pants and go from there. My question where did this “inspiration” from.

JavaJ, no, that’s no way to treat someone, unless you live in my neighborhood….

if it weren’t for Handsome Boy Modeling School, he’d still have 60 dollarsAfter this he ran crying to his neighbor’s house about how modeling just sucks…

Bob, I think you’re misleading all these poor men. They do have to buy the shirts though not wear them. The model in the picture seems to be carrying a shirt.

Shra,Thank you. I feel better today, i.e, ‘comfortably numb’. I’ll ignore Bob’s invoices … to hell with the debt collectors! Oops, I seem to have lost my shirt!

Maybe that guy has it… Bob, am sure that lady in the crowd has been pestering the model to take off his shirt and cant believe he would actually listen to her!!

Bob.If you check the signs in the front window of most U.S. stores, especially eating places, it will say, “No shirt, No shoes – No service”. It doesn’t say anything about pants. So… according to them, I can go into Applebee’s wearing a pair of shoes and a shirt (they say nothing about buttoning up the shirt either) and I wouldn’t have a problem? Why, it may not be long before you see my new fashion designs on the pages of “Really Stupid Fashions Weekly” winning some kind of award and making millions with my all-new, “skin” look. Unless you are female and really built, Which I am neither, I still wouldn’t apply to BeautifulPeople.com though.Moving to Titicaca where “No Shirt, No Shoes” doesn’t apply,LonnieP.S. – I always said “If we were meant to run around buck nekkid all the time, we would have been BORN that way…”

My favourite part is how the caption says that the model is wearing a ‘creation’ by a Pakistani designer.Is it just me, or is that ‘creation’ a pair of black pants, some white shoes and a red shirt in hand. Putting together an outfit does not a ‘creation’ make.Unless they’re saying that Tayyab Bombal ‘created’ the rock hard abs and impeccable pecs…I mean, that model sure does have a nice personality.

After losing his shirt investing his life savings with Bernie Madoff, designer Tayyab Bombal tried to put a positive spin on the experience.
