Fashion and trashin’ in Oinktown

October 19, 2010


Lamar, I thought you said we were having our fashion show in the underground parking garage to save money. But it says here we’ll be on the real runway. We’re not made of money.

Boss, I’m all over it. I got us the cheapest spot. They’re practically paying us to take it!

UKRAINE-FASHION/Yeah? What’s wrong with it, then?

It’s the last slot of the day, and it turns out they’re not able to guarantee, uh, you know…

What areย  you saying, Lamar?

Well, they don’t have a garbage pickup all day, so I guess it can be sort of messy by the end.

That’s fine, Lamar. Bring it on. It’s just a fashion show, how much garbage could there be, anyway? We’re not talking about a real pigsty, are we?

Nah, Boss, I’m thinking one small wastebasket. And maybe a very slight fetid stench…

Are those boots Shra’s style? It looks like a kindergardener got into his mom’s closet with a pair of scissors! But I like the boots.

Chicken feet use to go waste in Bangalore, since China’s appetite for this delicacy every feet is a money fetcher.
I am sure if all waste is put to use purposefully we can save enormous amount of effort.

Since its an Ukrainian designer Eduard Nasirov’s classy act. I am unsure who sets the garbage or picks the pile as in an act.

Hence lets offer the kiev speciality which Kiev Chicken and all its feathers.

This is a great idea!

As the models return, they can strip and toss these ‘creations’ in a pile on the runway.

It was about time garbage pickup guys had their own fashion week.

Hey, is that a dress I see in that trash, Lamar. Go get it. We can use it in our next fashion week.

@fwd: It’s called the Roche limit. It applies equally to fashon and celestial dynamics.
