Steamy ski hostesses shower on the slopes!

December 15, 2009

I don’t know. I just can’t figure out what’s happening here. The caption just tells us we’re seeing “hostesses” simulating a shower during a “promotional event for a dating Website.”

Well crap, I’ve been skiing and I haven’t seen women showering at the top of the mountain. Can I get my money back? This must be the place where Hef skis.


Could this steamy scene help explain the recent rash of skiing fatalities among men, dozens of whom have zoomed off cliffs for no apparent reason?

And is “hostesses” the WORST euphemism you’ve ever heard?

“Yes, we’re SO proud our daughter, Francois! She’s a hostess in a mountain-top glass ski shower. She meets so many nice young men!

“Francois, you have a great day, and don’t forget your new sponge… Oh Francois! I’ve told you, don’t put the shampoo in your hair until you get to work!”

Hey, scrubbing the shower whilst having a shower is a great idea! Why didn’t I think of that before?

No they shower, they just don’t shave or wear deoderant.
They invented the bidet.
As Ron White, the Blue Collar comedian, says about the bidet:
“Boy, that is accurate.”

My bad, Tim!
Now, why would I hit you with a soft whip lash… ?? Huh?

Then that would have to be a hard whiplash… :)

Promotional event for a dating website? French guys are looking for girls in skimpy bikinis willing to shower in the snow?

Wow, that’s not specific at all!

Tim, don’t be too bothered: I cannot understand myself even WITH my meds… after a while you just get used to the feeling.
