More gratuitous Victoria’s Secret shots?

November 22, 2009

Blog Guy, don’t get me wrong. I love the fact that you post fresh stuff on Saturdays and Sundays, and I enjoyed learning about balloon animal makers and naked hokey pokey this weekend.

Thanks. But?

Well, I thought maybe if you used a few more gratuitous photos from the big Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in New York it might artificially pump up your weekend numbers. I know it’s a cheap trick, but times are hard.

Indeed. I take your point, stranger. Three fresh photos from the big show, and I’ll throw in tags like lingerie and models and fashion and stuff like that. Thanks for the suggestion!

Um, Blog Guy, this isn’t exactly what I had in… oh, never mind….

Yes, Mr Rob,I am still hanging on your every word.Does that put me into the slot one of your top ten viewers?

I’m pretty sure that it does Tim, given that BG only has ten viewers.

Out of what? Time? Money? The closet? All of the above?Out of the top 10? I don’t think I was ever IN the top 10. I’m not a viewer, I’m a STALKER. There’s a difference. If you’re doing a list of BG’s top 10 stalkers, I’m right up there.

OK, I’ll say what everyone is thinking and doesn’t have the guts to say. Branson is HOT!

Wrong, BG, that’s just plain wrong. I have to agree with T.

And I thought you could only get Kyle Maclaughlin’s expression from Xanax…Robert, you’d save a lot of money on meds if you sent me, instead, tickets to the next Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show… please?

I don’t know how the rest of you feel but these guys just look creepy. No one should leer at women like that… Well except me of course, but I’m sure that goes without saying…
