Little Bo peep has lost her sheep
And hopes that they haven’t got ill
If they are found, please send them down,
To Fashion Week in Brazil

Jack Sprat could eat no fat,
His wife could eat no lean,
They had a daughter with an eating disorder,
Who modeled in a magazine

* * * *

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe
She had so many children she didn’t know what to do
For a guy to support them was what she was praying,
So she got slutty shoes with fishnet, stiletto heels and ankle straps and – what was I saying?

That’s it for today’s rhymes. Please come back tomorrow for Little Miss Muffet met Warren Buffett….

Alright, so that was a couple of days late for Shra’s B-Day, but I don’t hear her complaining so I guess she’s had her dosage on time this week.

Now, as to the pandering bit, and given that you ARE taking requests, could I just bother you with a few shots Auto shows and cars and everything motor? I’m a petrolhead, what can I say…

Or, given you appear to be on a fashion week mood, I could settle for some more models. Ideally, not the anorexic type, but I don’t want to seem choosy!

On behalf of this lady, those are hideous shoes! But it was worth the ugly clothes to read the great poems.

1. Those shoulder bones imply malnutrition so advanced I’m impressed they can stand, let alone walk about a bit.
2. Speaking as someone who hasn’t made it out of snow boots since before Christmas, shoes bah ! I’d like to request more farming related stories.

Never mind the shoes, the waif-like model or even the dress in the first photo … can someone please explain to me the sequinned bonnet?

When/where is it EVER appropriate to wear a sequinned bonnet?

How about at a REALLY posh swimming gala in the late 1960′s ?

Okay, when/where is it EVER appropriate to wear a sequinned bonnet in 2010?

If you are really really dumb and havent eaten in days, and wearing a sequiuned bonnet earns you that one tiny bean… then wearing the sequined bonnet is appropriate…
Thats what the stick girl told me when I sneaked to take a look at the other shoes at the show… I couldnt help but give her some of my meds… she needed it… more than I……
Anyone wearing a sequined bonnet would….

Tim, you are getting rather kinky here… I’d rather not know what comes next.

And, CrowGirl, I am with you on this. I’ve had to wear two pairs of shoes for a few weeks now: one to walk outside and another one in the office. So, I guess really sexy snow boots could also be a good topic for a post? I mean, that’s as steamy as we are getting with this cold front!
