chippendales billboard 490 this

Blog Guy, I see you’re suddenly laughing. What have  you got to be happy about? Come on, no fair holding back! Let us in on it, too.

NEWYORK-CATSHOWOkay, I guess there’s plenty to go around. A few days ago, Chippendales – you know, those male exotic dancers – lost a trademark case on their bow tie and shirt cuff outfits.

You know, they’re known for those outfits like Playboy is for their bunny costumes.

So what? Am I missing something here?

Think about it. That means now you, me, and any other guy with a bow tie and some French cuffs can go out and dance to entertain women for money. Cha-ching!

So you think the bow tie and cuffs are pretty much all you need to entertain the ladies, Blog Guy?

chippendales bunny 220Of course not. I should probably learn to do the chicken dance or something like that before I climb up onstage with my orange Halloween trick-or-treat bag. You know, for tips.

Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah……what? I’m sorry. Did you say something?

Pardon me while I try and feel around for a crowbar to dislodge my eyes from those abs.

I’m just wondering, Mr. B how it is that you caught this story, but have ignored the European Beard-Growing Championship?
Wait … I just re-read the requirements to maximise page views. Hmm, crusty old guys with beards, vs eye candy for all. Not really a tough one there. Ignore previous transmission – carry on.

Cute bunny, but I think the OSU got the better part of this deal.

BG, I am so excited about your stage performance! It has been a long time since I suffered, er, saw the Chicken Dance. Seeing it done in tie and cuffs will be a noteworthy event. I will gladly toss a bill or two into the treat bag!

Just dont hippity hop away from the blog, Mr.Pilot.. Dont think BG would appreciate that.. 😀

Speaking of things that make guys go hippity hop, Mr. B. did you hear about the Paris Auto Show and how car companies are being more conservative with what their models wear? You definitely have to cover that hogwash of a story!! T1X520100930
