Blog Guy, you’ve helped a lot of readers with very specific fashion needs, and I hope you can help me. I’m just a regular chick, except I have two extra legs growing out of my stomach, and just because of that small detail, I can’t find clothes to wear.

FASHION-UKRAINE/Two extra legs, huh? What’s that like?

Well, it’s much easier to do push-ups.

May I ask a very personal question?

No, you may not. Now can you help me?

Yeah, I’m going to go out on a limb here…

Limb? Stop it! I’ve heard all the bad jokes already.

I just meant this fashion creation from Kiev would give you a leg up on the other…

Stop it right now!

You’re right. I’m very sorry for any insensitivity I may have shown.

I accept your apology, Blog Guy. Now, my friend has a different fashion problem. She has four extra arms hanging down to her knees. Can you help?

Yeah, I can give her a hand….

Bill, so you consider THIS to be a day job? I’ll stick to consulting, thank you very much… the pay is bad, the hours are awful but, hey, at least it’s decent (not too much) and keeps bread on the table (more like crumbs, really)

Hmmm different “positions” while walking? :D :D

This is just…just….man I can’t even think of the right word. Ridiculous doesn’t quite cover it. Absurd is a little too nice, preposterous is too cliche. What’s a word for ‘an embarrasingly garish over-the-top cry for shameful attention’?

:?

It beggars belief.

I’ve heard of hand-me-down clothes before, but that’s ridiculous.
