Here they are, undead and untanned….

fashion sunblock 1 490

Blog Guy, can you settle a bet I have with the guy who does grout work in my grandma’s shower?

Of course. Bet-Settlers R Us. That’s what we do here.

GEORGIA/For a minute there you sounded almost sarcastic, Blog Guy. Anyhow, the grout guy says you can raise the dead by putting number 45 sunblock on them.

He says they have to have died in the last month or so, and you spread a strip of the sunblock on their forehead, just above their eyes. Can you check it out?

The grout guy seems to be right! You learn something new every day in this blogging game, I’ll tell you!

We paid a funeral home for some recently deceased folks, and brought in a butt-load of  sunblock. Sure enough, within minutes, all of them were up and walking around.

But that’s incredible, Blog Guy! Who would have guessed the dead could be brought back to life so easily?

Let’s not get hasty here, I’ve observed these people for a couple of days now. I wouldn’t necessarily describe them as being alive.

I’d just tend to call them really creepy sleepwalkers who needn’t worry about getting sunburned.

They look like they have been headbutting a recently grouted wall to me, coincidence?

I think that’s Nair, not sunblock. Eyebrows are SO last season!

You found a new location for the white bars!

I hope this doesn’t mean that we’re in for a brow-quake day.

So eyebrows are considered risque now? Hmm..there really is a fetish for everything.

So I did my civic duty today and served my summons for jury duty. Gotta love how the system works. I sat around for two hours waiting to be called. Turned out the judge “no longer required our services”. So we were dismissed.

Oh well, at least I get paid for my troubles. Gotta love livin in the U.S. of A.! :p

Actually, I think they’re just cleansing their T-zones.

Is this considered “attractive”? And, if so, attractive to whom??? I wouldn’t be caught..umm…dead, with that look!

LMR, they shoulda covered a lot more than their forehads if they wanted to take care of their T Zone…
Nah, they are just pretend zombies…

It has now been over 10 hours since the last Oddly Enough ‘news’ item has appeared on my screen. How am I supposed to survive the afternoon?

I see that the Zombie eyebrow waxing union guys were on strike the day of this shoot.

I see – so the process for becoming a model is:
1. become a zombie OR
2. get a pre-frontal lobotomy
These candidates are from the latter category

That is quite instructional indeed Unca. I am going to consider that every time my nose itches now. :p

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

Shra, zap him: Unca violated the no-learning, no-teaching rule!! And he admits it!!

Posted by justM | Report as abusive

I was thinking about that, M….
Lets see if Unca can come up with a reason for me NOT to zap him…
Think I am going to let me victims defend themselves, before I carry out their punishment…
Wat say ye all?
