All you nutjobs, come up onstage now!

November 11, 2010


Blog Guy, if I’m not mistaken, the big annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was held last night. I come to your blog for all my shameless retail lingerie news, so what can you tell us about it?

secret fashion combo 280You know, I got kind of bored with this one, but I can give you a few details.

I gather from seeing our photos that this year’s theme was “Great Acid Trips of the 1960s.”

That’s very interesting. Did they break any new ground?

Indeed. They experimented with letting guys get right up onstage. One model had to run a gauntlet of the criminally insane. It was the last we saw of that poor woman.

Then they released some lurching, frothing zombies on an unsuspecting singer, and in yet another bit a model had to carry a barbell while being heckled by some pasty dorks who were thrown out of Applebee’s for not wearing shirts.

Cool! Anything else new?

Yeah, they previewed a number from that new Broadway show, “Josephine and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Bra and Panties,” but I was sound asleep by then.

Ms. Perry looks like she nearly had a “wardrobe malfunction”.

Emanuela – is that Spanish for “nice curves”?

Well Katy Perry it was nice knowing ya. Sucks the Mayans messed up their calendar and the zombie apocalypse was actually scheduled for the exact moment you were gonna be up on stage.

Wait, Ms. Fontana appears to be at the wrong venue. Shouldn’t she be at the Strongo Cup? I bet she’s going to starwhack her agent…

Don’t worry too much about Katy Perry, D_n_d; zombies only want brains. :)

Not to mention using the word “skivvies,” which I haven’t heard since “McHale’s Navy.”

Whilst it would be impractical for shovelling pig muck, I do quite like the crochet sleeves/ see through butterfly wing outfit in the bottom picture.

People who follow fashion: know that there’s a (governmental) body that sets fashion trends every year. The World Bank.

@skeres, ha ha good point! :)

Behati Prinsloo’s photo has me desiring a fruit roll-up for some reason. Weird.

Katy Perry is singing her new single “I kissed a Zombie”.
The story of the song is that she kisses a Zombie. When he realises that she is a vacuous air-head, he feels sorry for her, and offers her some braaaiiinnns.
The chorus starts off:
– I kissed a zombie and he didn’t like it
– He said he had some brains that might fit

I love the fashions and the fun that surrounds this show. Congratulations once again to the Angels, VS and everyone involved for something we all look forward to!

Yes, I’d like to “See” that show, in a Biblical sense!

Posted by AllThatJazz | Report as abusive

I’m glad you said that, Unca. I was wondering about that, too, but I thought maybe there’s another bible I don’t know about.

Probably a wise move, Unca…
