Male models? Models of WHAT?

Blog Guy, my friends and I are guys who sincerely want the same thing most young men want.


NEWYORK-FASHON/Exactly. But we have a problem. We’re not exactly George Clooney in the looks department, if you take my meaning.

How bad is it? Do chicks run away from you screaming?

Only the ones who see us coming. Anyway, we have grotesque haircuts, crazed eyes and look like we’re barely conscious… Some of us lack chins.

Wow. Are you as bad as Mickey Rourke?

No, but almost. What can we do?

Relax. Just do what other scary guys do these days. Become male models.

Um, don’t you have to look handsome for that?

Not anymore. Check out these actual male models from the current New York Fashion Week. I mean, these dudes are getting PAID at least minimum wage, maybe more!

Holy crap, thanks! We’re on our way, if we can find a bus that will stop for us!

Awesome. Hey, if you see Mickey, pick him up too…

I think Mickey Rourke has a nice voice… and he doesnt look half bad in Iron Man 2…
Now… about those male models… well.. I dont think they are in the healthy zone… are they?
They look like Size 0 models to me…

Who agrees! Hands up!

Now Mickey looks like the personification of a bad hair day.

I’d say they are models of how not to look if I was a-guessin’. ‘specially the no-chin Billy Idol wanna-be.

I must have the photoshopped versions of the pics because all those dudes… and this time there is no mistaking they are ALL dudes…. clearly have chins.

Well maybe the dude with long hair was a chick who decided she wanted to be a dude. Or Lurch lost a few pounds and started a new career. Who can really tell?

To Mickey Rourke: I want that hour and change back I spent watching The Wrestler!

Be honest now, Mr B. These aren’t really male models.
I mean, the vacant stare, the dishevelled uncoordinated look, the drawn pale complexion due to drinking too hard and smoking too much.
These guys are all journalism majors!
