News, but not the serious kind

Ya think she might be nuts, Lamar?

October 3, 2010

fashion yellow 490

So wait a minute, Lamar. Tell me again how you know this chick who’s coming here to the bar?

I haven’t actually met her, Lonnie, but she sounds very hot.

FRANCE-FASHION/And she’s a real model?

You bet. She just modeled at Paris Fashion Week. It doesn’t get any better than that.

Dude, I’m SO jealous! What do you think she looks like?

I picture her as very all-American looking. Athletic, long blond hair, doesn’t need any makeup at all.

Oh, man! And what will she be wearing?

I imagine a short, pristine, white summer dress, to show off her deep tan. And silver gladiator sandals.

The best part is, she told me she’d wear some little sign, so I’d know it was her. Special just for me, Lon.

I’m tellin’ you, when my hot model gets here, heads are gonna turn!

Sigh. Every guy will wanna be you, Lamar!

Do her other personalities have their own tee shirts?
They must make for interesting reading.

Awww, and some nice sensible shoes for Shra too.

I thought lampshades were made to be worn on the head?

Posted by Dave_not_dave | Report as abusive
 

Multipurpose lampshade, Dave.

From the palor of her skin, if she is nuts, she is definitely a blanched nut.

Is that an inflatable skirt? Nice boots though, very nice.

From that angle you can’t see the way the back of my head is shaved….or my teenage angst.

I want those boots.. Can you ask Lamar to get them off her? You know, as a part of a neat trick or something?

She doesnt look zombie like to you guys? You know, with that colour, I would think she is in the early stages or something…

A horror fashion week is always good. The horror industry needs to be up to date with the latest fashion trends.

More zombie than nutty, RB :D

In Paris, head nod (some fall off from shotgun blasts…) in appreciation of the anime art clothing designs for zombies as Fashion Horror Week stumbles down the runway.

First down the runway and eyeing reporters as potential lunch, er, lunch dates, is Blanche. Stylists created a carefree hair style and a rinse off plastic skirt to suit the zombie lifestyle.

@Shra – I think Dave would be able to hook you up with a pair like that, maybe they would be in desert camo beige, though. Send a box of Krispy Kremes to the Goat Cave and he may just throw in a matching patrol pack as well.

That model also had an exciting career starring in such thrillers as “The Ring” and “The Grudge”. Now that everyone here has looked into her eyes they are going to have a terrible fashion disaster is seven days!

That skirt reminds me – I must get the aluminum siding on my garage painted this week.

Oh, that outfit is nothing. You should see the designer who, literally, used plastic shopping bags as part of the “attire”. I’m not sure what statement the designer was making, but it brought a completely different meaning to “bag lady”.

@Pilot – I looked into her eyes. I better get rid of my phone now. Oops, too late, my terrible fashion disaster already started.

Posted by Insane | Report as abusive
 

Interesting, skeres. I’m wondering, if you buy an outfit like that, what do you carry it home in?

Posted by rcbasler | Report as abusive
 

Did they mention who did her hair? I would like to have mine done in that way and reinforce my “I just survived a hurricane” look.

Posted by I_dont_know_1 | Report as abusive
 

BG, thats a silly thing to ask.. ofcourse, you carry yourself home!

I just saw your tag line Mr. B. “Stop resisting”… heh nice one.

What would have been funnier is if the rest of the models had worn shirts saying, THIS IS NOT ME…

Posted by rcbasler | Report as abusive
 

Any other suggestions?

Can I haz braaaiiinnss?

Or maybe “I visited the Goofy Face Museum & Doughnut Shop”

Posted by rcbasler | Report as abusive
 

See, this is why I really do need a logo for the museum.

Or we could use Toilethead Johnson…
