News, but not the serious kind
Couldn’t she just do a floral tribute?
Blog Guy, the World Cup is drawing to a close. So who would you say is the big winner so far?
Oh, without a doubt it’s model Larissa Riquelme, of Paraguay. Without leaving her hometown, she managed to mug her way into 24 pictures on our photo file while her country was still a player.
The truth is, I may even have used a few photos of her big tonsils in my own blog. My memory is hazy on that.
Anyhow, after Paraguay lost, Larissa reacted the way any of us would have. She took off all her clothes and posed buck naked, as “a tribute” to the team. Naturally, we ran five of those photos, complete with mandatory credit for the newspaper that handed them out.
So that makes 29 shots of her on your file, just for screaming and jiggling and getting naked?
By my count, yes.
Are you going to use one of those nude shots in your blog?
Yes, I have to. I can’t ignore “a tribute.” But don’t worry. With my nearly invisible addition of tasteful, professional, peach-colored rectangles to the photo, you won’t even know.
