Honey, will you marry me?

November 13, 2009

Okay fashion staff, welcome to the future. This is our first test of a bold and radical new process for designing women’s clothing.

As you know, we fed tons of raw data about MEN into a massive new software program, and told the computer to design the perfect creation to appeal to the largest possible number of males.

We fed in detailed data on age, income, location, politics, religion, marital status, hobbies, personal values – you name it – and then punched the big red “CREATE” button.

After three crashes and reboots, here’s the first thing the computer gave us: a trashy-looking floozy with a cheap bleach job, wearing a short dress with several hundred beer bottles hanging from it.

YES! The rest is history – we’ve pre-sold 20 million of these dresses through this blog, and we haven’t even started making them yet! Is life great, or what?

Lamar, how are you coming with the prototype of that second item, the Swiss Cheese and Lunch Meat Blouse?

99 bottles of beer on the dress, 99 bottles of beer. Take one down, pass it around … oooh baby!

I prefer those German girls with big jugs to the little bottles of the Portuguese.

Funny my anti-spam word is Toast! How appropriate!

I was thinking of OD-ing on my Prozac and Lithium after your Kalashnikov post, but this one has rekindled my hopes in humanity! At least, in my own!! Yes, thank you, Robert, you’ve made my week-end a lot better!
