News, but not the serious kind

Does this make me look super, or just fat?

January 27, 2010

Good morning, It’s my first time here in your shop. I’m a super-heroine, and I need an outfit.

Well, welcome to Super-Chicks R Us. What’s your chick’s shtick?

I’m flexible. I was  hoping you could help me choose.

Off  the-rack? Sure. You could be Utensil Hair Woman, or Leggy Seductress Secret Police Girl. Or maybe Perfect Posture Woman?

SPAIN/Crap, I might as well be Good Dental Hygiene Woman. What else?

Uh, down here we’ve got Slutty Angry Neptune Goddess, Leather Bustier Bodysuit Garter Woman, Circus Woman…

Hmmm. Lamar would like these when I’m not off saving mankind. I had an idea of my own, but it’s a tad edgy.

Go on, honey, we’ve heard it all before here.

I’m seeing kind of a court jester thing going on, with black gloves and a dead bleached cow skull in my hair. Too much?

By gad, that’s Georgia O’Keefe Artist Woman! We’ve got it right here! What are you, like a size six? The skull is detachable for easy cleaning, and…

Should we wrap it, or will you just fly home?

Leggy Seductress Secret Police Girl looks… dare I say.. hot. Could use a bit more in the cleavage department but I would take nice legs over cleavage any day.

And with all the medals she has on her uniform she must be good at secret servicing.

Hmmm….

So that’s what happened to my wardrobe after I was burgled.

Hmph.

Somehow I get the funny feeling this post is not intended to pamper us male readers!

Is it just me or should I get my dosage revised?

Well M, it does lack VS models and helicopters.

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive
 

I wonder what kind of super powers these super outfits bestow upon the wearer? The ability to fly helicopters, perhaps?

E … which outfit(s) of yours did they grab? And where, pray tell, did you wear these?

Super job, Blog Guy! :-)

Haven’t you heard? PeTA is way too busy campaigning to get Punxsutawney Phil replaced with a robot. Groundhog day is just around the corner, so they’re busy, busy, busy!

Bottom middle outfit. I wear that to my RPG group.

Although in reality it was my kitchen that was robbed. This explains why I’m missing my forks.

I kind of wonder what would happen if we mixed up all these superheros’ costumes into one… perhaps better not.

M, I think you’d get a hotpot if we did that.

Or a hodgepodge.

At first I thought you were telling a joke! Of the ‘what do you get when you cross a kangaroo and a sheep’ variety!

:D

So, E, what DO you get?

Rats! Now I’ve got to wait until Monday to find out! Between this nagging doubt and Celine Dion singing My Heart Will Go On in my head, thanks to Shra, my week-end is thoroughly shot!

You are mighty welcome M… want another song for today??
“Billie Jean”… ;) Yenjay!

So how was your weekend M?

The answer to the question ‘what do you get when you cross a kangaroo and a sheep?’ is of course ‘a woolly jumper’.

:D

Shra, thanks a lot, but I’ve had “My Heart Can’t Tell You No” in my head since yesterday morning!

E, so that’s how they make them? I AM positively thrilled to find out! I think I’ll dash out to get a couple of those for my daughter, just to support the inter-cultural exchange.
