Cavort until you’re blue in the face…

January 6, 2011


Okay Lamar, this was your really big chance. How many guys get to plan the entire Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, huh?

sports illustrated vertical 180This is the magazine everybody waits for, so pass around those proofs and show us what you did.

Where did you decide to shoot? St. Barts? Bali? Crete?

Nah, those places are all too sunny and tropical, Boss. We shot in the Netherlands, on January 1! Check it out, a balmy 38 degrees!

Lamar, you are a bonehead! A simpleton! It says here these aren’t even models, they’re adult actresses!

Right Boss, we needed them to ACT like they weren’t freezing to death… Look at them, romping in the North Sea!

Do you think guys are gonna line up to buy pictures of chicks in settings described as frosty, frigid and numb?

Come on, look at this one here, Boss! That’s a classic sexy shot of her you-know-whats!

Lamar, those are goose bumps.

Uh-oh. Well still, I thought the black stocking caps were a nice touch…

Once, when I was on some islands near Alaska, I thought I saw a Sports Illustrated photoshoot on an iceberg. As it turned out, though, it was just an optical Aleutian.

The first one from the right, may give an impression of not being who they are…

These fine ladies also had a blockbuster cinematic hit titled “Not Now Honey I Have Pneumonia!”

If we all run in the North Sea together we would be blue by you…
Savin’ tissue, used all mine.
Got goose bumps but I’m feelin’ fine.
Thinkin’ ’bout wool socks and wine
I’m blue by you.

These actesses remind me of my dear old Grammy Doc, who used to say: “Those who get too big for their britches will be exposed in the end.”

Spin, did you write this backwards? Backwards poets, you know, write inverse.

Cold water does cause shrinkage! Just look at their suits!

Welcome to the espn, we are at the annual freeform body surf championship of the coastal women of Frostlandia.

It looks like all the contestants lost the body board and todays contest will have to be rescheduled. On a bright note French President Nicolas Sarkozy is there to lend a hand.

First off, hello to everyone – I’ve been following this blog for a while now but never commented before. Hats off to Basler and your crew of regular commentators – you all crack me up…

With respect to this article, did anyone else find the Playboy tattoo ironic on the second girl from left? If I were their employer, I’d photoshop it away! After all, who’d want to promote the competition?!

Ooooohh!! Good eye, Malteser! 😀
Fwd, I thought you guys would be disappointed with the lack of more suggestive pics… but hey, if you are happy, BG should have nothing to worry about… 😀

@Malteser, hey welcome aboard! Help yourself to a doughnut. :) To answer your question yes, I found the Playboy tattoo. That’s as far as I got though before Mr. Spam Basket told me I don’t have to go home but I can’t stay here.

Thanks for all the welcome messages, and a special thanks for the doughnut. I primarily joined for those, the articles are a bonus, and the eye-candy? Well, that does help a tiny bit too… 😛
