Don’t slam the Dior on your way out…

January 26, 2010

Quick quiz: These solemn-faced people, including musician Kanye West, are staring at…

a) The Massachusetts election night results.

b) The scene where a hunter kills Bambi’s mother.

FASHION-FRANCE/

c ) A raging fireball enveloping a 72-car pile-up on the New Jersey Turnpike.

d) The Dior Fall-Winter 2010/2011 men’s fashion show, in Paris.

Yep, I got this one right, too. It’s the Dior show. Must have been a real tear-jerker.

Or, as Kanye West ran onto the runway to say, “Imma let you finish, but Beyonce has the best men’s clothing…”

The latest superhero league was doomed to fail from the beginning. The Funeral Director Brothers and Denim Girl were bland enough with their powers of cremation and acid wash…but let’s face it…NO ONE likes Kanye.

What is it with the big goofy sunglasses? What is it with the sunglasses period? Is he blinded by the glare from his white shirt and trousers?

And what has that to do with Kanye West, Billy Boy?
Hey, Unca.. what language is that? :P

Dr. Doll, I believe it’s a legally mandated accessory to be worn by certified intellectually-challenged as a means to ensure adequate precautions are taken by their fellow human beings. You know, so everybody will be more understanding and compassionate.

I am so happy I am not part of the generation Kanye is the voice of.

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

Is he the voice of anything?

Posted by justM | Report as abusive

I dunno M… he is way too old for me.. :P

From what I am to understand he thought he was Jesus or something. It turns out that he is really just a gay fish.

ROFL iflydaplanes! I love that episode.

Exactly what I needed to hear….

Shra, you have to understand that those people who love Monty Python and the Holy Grail are part of a cult!

Posted by DoctorDoll | Report as abusive

How do you know he’s the king?

Posted by rcbasler | Report as abusive

I understand! I know why he’s wearing the stupid, goofy glasses. He thought he would be a model, and he wanted to dress the stupid, goofy part. Well, from what I’ve seen of the “art” at these shows, he remarkably underestimated the requisite co-efficient of stupidity and goofiness.

I think I need to join this cult and soon… could someone send me something to get myself initiated??? Pleaseeeeeee (making really round, sad eyes… chocolate eyes.. :):) )

Step one: Go to your local video rental store, or youtube, or google, or whichever method you prefer, and rent, download, etc., “Monthy Python and the Holy Grail.”

Step two: watch it.

Step three: welcome to the cult. :)

Thanks for sorting out my evenning’s entertainment, Mr.Pilot… ;)

You are welcome Shra. Oh I forgot to mention there is a short test you must pass before you get officially initiated. You must determine the average airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow.

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

Knew there had to be a catch! So, what’s the answer? ;)

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

Ya gotta watch the movie, the answer will be revealed for you then…..ooooooooooohhhhhhh :::waves arms around wistfully:::
