A spike in designer sales?

December 3, 2009

Blog Guy, I need some dating fashion advice.

I’m a normal young woman, and I often find that on a first date with a guy I meet online, he only has one thing on his mind, if you catch my drift.

What I’m looking for is an outfit to wear that is attractive and shows I’m fun, but also sends the message that we should take it slow, if you catch my drift.

Sure. Have  you considered a burqa, if you catch my drift?

Too extreme. It’s okay for the merchandise to be visible, I just want it in a locked showcase.

Ah. Then check out this creation that was shown during Jakarta Fashion Week. It asks the subtle question, “Are you a bleeder? Well are you?”

I love it! It’s perfect! Can we take this off-line, so you can send me some more information on it?

What else do you need to know?

Oh, like how to sharpen those spikes, and what sort of paralyzing nerve agent I could dip them in?

Yikes. Wait a minute. You’re not “Cynthia from Tampa” by any chance, are you?

I believe the outfit is inside out.

Can you believe the name “Bill” was already taken????
And Catherine Zeta-Jones was too long???
And K. West was inadmissable???
