They’re like Charlie’s Angels, only nastier!

April 26, 2010

MEXICO/

Okay sales staff, the big civil defense and security equipment exhibition is coming up, and we need to push our merchandise. Let’s brainstorm!

gun chicks vertical 260Boss, it’s me, Lonnie! What if we pass out glossy brochures about peaceful crowd control and stuff like that?

Yeah Lonnie, that’s  one way to go. Here’s another: cleavage!

Cleavage, Boss? You mean like girls have?

Yes Lonnie, Like girls have. Hot fantasy, that’s what will sell our weapons and riot gear.

But Boss! Our customers are sober, responsible officials! We’re selling serious equipment for soldiers and police in life-or-death situations!

Right, Lonnie. And your point would be?

gun chicks horiz 260It seems like you just want to take steamy chicks with great legs, put them in low-cut black outfits, give them guns and riot clubs, and have them stand there looking all kinky!

Ah, when you put it that way, I DO see your point, Lonnie! Yes, we WILL need some crowd control of our own, to keep the frenzied buyers in line.

“Take a number, boys, there’s plenty of firepower for everybody! No cutting in line, buddy!”

The one on the left with the blue toy gun must not have passed her quals! Of course, if the one on the right HAD passed her quals, she wouldn’t have her finger inside the trigger guard.

Caption contest entries:
“Oh, that *is* a gun in your pocket…”

“Now where did I put those extra rounds?”

Are they about to go out and play some paintball? If so let me just grab my Mini and I will show them what it’s all about!

Your Mini? Yikes. Is that what guys are calling it these days?

Somehow, I think sending hot, busty chicks to break up a riot is likely to be counterproductive.
Although there would be a number of men insisting on being arrested and searched thoroughly, possibly several times.

Sure, it’s good enough for a car to be called a Mini, why not a paintball gun?

How long did it take you all to notice it’s a paint ball gun she is holding? LOL

E – I’ve just stopped commenting. I figure that eventually BG will cotton on to the fact that I find these posts boring and unworthy of my attention, and will start actually trying to engage with me again.

Some people call me an optimist. I like to think I’m a pessimist in denial.

Baz… if you want to be left with only your male OE readers… you shoulda said so… after all, what are we asking for?? A few good looking men, showing off their booty…! hey, the guys complain about TWO white strips, we dont even complain about the ONE that may come across our way….

LMR, I wondered what had happened to you and I don’t blame ya! I’d almost be the same but I don’t want to be pushed out of what has been a sanity-saving distraction for me.

Bingo Shra! I wouldn’t complain about one white bar, but gee it would be nice to HAVE one white bar to not complain about!!!

That made sense right?
