News, but not the serious kind
Well-dressed puppets, no strings attached
Blog Guy, you’ve helped a lot of people with unusual fashion needs. Firing squad victims, satyrs, gladiators’ wives, Smurfs… I’m a puppet, see, and it’s hard for us to find nice clothes. Can you help?
Yeah, I guess I can pull some strings…
You’re an idiot, Blog Guy. The things with the strings are marionettes. Puppets are the OTHER thing.
Oh, sorry. I’ll try to lend a hand…
Hand? I get it. You think that’s funny, with what we go through?
No, it must be like a daily visit to the proctologist. Look, you’re in luck. As you can see here, several recent fashion shows offer chic attire for puppets AND marionettes.
It’s none of my business, but why don’t you break free and write an exposé of the whole sordid puppet life.
Could I do that? What would I call the book?
“A Farewell to Arms.”
Wow! Could I go on a book tour?
Of course. Audiences would love you. “Ladies and gentlemen, let’s give her a big hand!”
