fashion vodka 490

Lamar, those fashion models are getting uppity. Oh, they’re so full of themselves, with their beauty and glamour, we need to take ‘em down a notch.

fashion smoke combo 280Gosh, how do we do that, Boss?

We lower their self-esteem.

Let’s put one of ‘em in lingerie and stiletto heels, send her out on the runway with a big bottle of vodka, and have her ad lib jokes until she’s flat on the floor. She won’t feel so high and mighty then!

Boss! That’s harsh! And what else?

Take some ugly backstage photos. You know, catch a girl puffing on a big old cigarette butt while some beefy tattooed guy messes with her hair. There’s no glamour there! And shoot some of ‘em in grubby bathrobes, smoking and hacking up against a dingy cinder block wall! Heh heh heh…

So, Lamar, it’s been three hours. How’s my plan workin’ out?

Well, I’m no expert, Boss, but you know the one with the stilettos and lingerie and vodka? She seems to have plenty of self-esteem left. Hell, I wish I had half that much….

BG has started a joke but failed to provide a punch line. So….

This model walks into a bar, see, and she’s wearing a bathrobe, smoking a cigarette, and carrying a chicken….

“TO GET TO THE OTHER SIDE!”

…and the bartender says “Get that disgusting creature out here. It’s filthy and frightening the customers.”

And the model says “But this chicken is my fashion designer!”

And the Rabbi says “Miss, I feel very confident in saying that he was speaking TO THE CHICKEN.”

Good, Doc, but you left out the drill instructor.

Posted by rcbasler | Report as abusive

Just then, a drill instructor at the bar says, “I like the way it wiggles its tail feathers in time to the music.”

And the bartender says, “Yes, and the chicken is pretty good, too!”

And thigh highs…. cause really, look at those legs! :)

Actually, I think it was the chicken who answered, “I know, but she’s my AA sponsor and ride home!”

I can’t make up my mind here: What makes the least sense: the post or the flow of the comments?

Sorry, I haven’t had my morning dose yet, so I fail to see the sense. I’l check again in a about a half-hour, once the meddies have kicked in, and get back to you on that one.

Now that I’ve had both my morning and early afternoon dose, everything makes PERFECT sense! Thanks for your patience!

Everything makes sense? Even being in Switzerland?
