Why are these bikini models romping?

March 26, 2010

victoria celebrate combo 490

Quick quiz: These three perky Victoria’s Secret models are celebrating because…

USA/a) It’s the 15th anniversary of the Victoria’s Secret swim catalog.

b) It’s the 50th anniversary of blowing air kisses for no apparent reason whatsoever.

c) It’s official! Romping is going to be a Summer Olympics sport!

d) Allessandra has reached a weight of 60 pounds, and is only two sizes below being a Size Zero.

e) They found out their hotel has ice machines on EVERY floor.

f) Candice just powered up her new iPhone for the very first time, and 10 seconds later got a text message I can’t print here.

g) Reuters is going to issue SIXTEEN actual news photos honoring this enormous celebration!

Sorry readers, this one is kind of a trick question, with at least two right answers, a) and g).

In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if the rest of the answers are pretty close to being  correct, as well, so everybody wins today. I think I’ll blow a big air kiss for no apparent reason whatsoever…

The obvious question; why arn’t more bikini models romping, more often? Also, nice to see Australia represented.

I am still drooling over Miranda Kerr….

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

I know Unca but if I have a pic of Miranda Kerr in front of me people will think I am drooling with a purpose which is slightly less embarrassing.


Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

I agree Unca, Miranda Kerr does have a nice set of cans. :)

@fwd079…. if you haven’t found them already here ya go buddy :)

@Unca… I will not entertain the thought that Miranda Kerr is not 100% certified woman. I know that makeup and the cameras make her hotter than she might be sans all that but that’s the point of makeup and camera work. I still would not mind waking up next to her.

And in the least she does still have magnificent boobies.

No Unca, she is not wearing shoes. I can see that in the third pic. Along with those legs. Doesn’t Miranda Kerr have such awesome legs?? Kinda wish they could be wrapped around me.

A nice set of cans and a nice set of gams! Hell she’s got nice everything! :)

Those tight shorty short shorts beg to differ my friend.

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

Well Shra, you got some candy at least!



Posted by egeria | Report as abusive

Give the women some eye candy! I for one have enough to last me a while! :)
