Oh Boss, there you are. Got a minute?

Lamar, I’m kind of busy. The big fashion show is just starting. What is it?

fashion coke crop 240Well, some strange woman came by a couple of hours ago and said she was a designer and needed space to work. She didn’t look quite right, but you never know in this business, so I helped her out.

Cripes Lamar, she could be a serial killer! Or worse, a blogger! So what space did you give her to work in?

I put her in that little alcove back by the Coke machine, Boss. You know, next to where they deliver eggs to the diner.

LAMAR! Look out there on the runway! Do you SEE what you’ve done?

Oh my God, Boss! And to think, I almost gave her working space in the human organ bank, next door!

Cokette looks positively frightening…. Maybe she is daring someone to laugh at her, so that she can unleash her wrath.

the tiny ribbons under her chin, makes it very hard for people NOT to laugh… so, I think we could have major casualties at this show…

Re Cokette:

Uh, Bob, aren’t those University of Wisconsin colors, red and white? And she does seem to be wearing a badge.

Ha! I knew it – those models stay thin by getting ‘coked-up’ before fashion events.

What a crack-up – the second picture seems to show a matching clutch purse.
I wonder what other egg-cessories this outfit comes with?

Posted by zeitgeist | Report as abusive

Umm, can we please clarify?
In that first picture is that large swirly image actually part of the outfit, or is this the new ‘white bar’?
’cause it’s kinda disturbingly placed.

You know what a cold coke is great with when it’s 46 (115) degrees out? Grilled goat. Really.

Is that Gwyneth Paltrow?

Drop by and see me any time Unca. I might even share a non-alcoholic beer with you, as that is the only kind we can get here in the heart of Taliban country. Would you prefer the St. Pauli Girl n.a? Or the Becks n.a.? Or we could really splurge and have the Lowenbrau n.a. The choices are many, the time is short, as always.

Nosmo: I believe that is a recycling symbol. And I hate to think what she is recycling there.

I thought it was the Queen of the Concession Stand outfit.

That “dress” on the right is either crap crochet, really bad fake chainmail, or both.

I’m thinking grilled goat may feature in my weekend. If only I can find a goat…

Nosmo, that swirly image is warning of a vortex you don’t wanna get caught in. If you do you would be forced to go shopping and buy expensive things for her.

Umm….. maybe I could cook sometihng really spicy and get to the party, Unca and Dave… a cool coke/ lemonade would be very nice, thank you… :)

This looks like a case where the kid made the project for his mom. Makes a switch from parents doing kid’s science projects right? :)

I’ve seen some pretty amazing clothes (and shoes!) made from recycled material that is actually wearable. This? This is laughable.
