Hey look! It’s Super Wastebasket Man!

December 17, 2009

Fashion Show security staff. Come in, please. Give me a situation report on the nude intruder we found backstage.


Yes sir, we apprehended him. He claimed he was a male model in the show, but he was buck-naked and deranged.

fashion jerasulem 180Good work. Are you positive he’s been neutralized.

Roger that, sir. We threw him into an empty room, still naked. He won’t bother us again.

And you’re POSITIVE there’s nothing in that room?

We triple checked, Sir. Nothing but some old red fabric that was thrown away in a wire wastebasket.

That’s a relief. Even this nutjob couldn’t do anything with that….

Somehow I get the feeling this is not the type of Shirtless Male Model LMR or Shra had in mind…

Not without the right dosages, Bob!

Well, he would do…. for now… though I kinda like the fact that he doesnt have a six pack… so much more softer… but then not too soft… :)

Whoohoo! Finally they’re using real people on the catwalk! Now let’s see a woman up there with a decent gut and some meat on her bones! 😀

There is something rather fetching about the drape of that red fabric. Although it looks like he could use some of that ‘shape enhancing’ underwear underneath…

LMR, dont you think he is meaty enough?

Very brave of him! I would love to see more fashion shows with REAL AVERAGE-BODIED models !!

You know what, Bob… I can actually feel this guy growing on me… I mean, I still like Mr. Fab Abs and wouldnt mind at all, if you have more pics of him… but there is something about Mr. Waste Basket that just draws me to him…. (sigggggggggggh)
