Fashion creations to die for?

January 24, 2011


fashion napkins this 490

Okay Lamar, business hasn’t picked up at all, so I hope you REALLY saved money on today’s fashion show. We’re just about broke.

fashion ghost 240Don’t worry, Boss, this one is practically a freebie.

Do tell.

For starters, the dress we’re showing was made entirely with 40 starched linen napkins and some super-glue. TheΒ  model was a really good sport.

I hope this venue you rented wasn’t expensive. It’s kind of giving me the creeps.

That’s the best part, boss!Β  We got the place for free, if you can believe that!

Free? Why was it free, Lamar?

Oh, there’s a crazy story about this place being haunted by some model that died on the runway and now she comes back to eat the still-beating heart of anybody who uses the place, if you can believe claptrap like that…

That’s pretty darned nutty, Lamar.

Say, I think I left my trail mix in the car, so I’m going out for a while. You hold the fort, you hear?

The picture of the second model reminds me of what happened when the first Mrs. Nosmo tried using a pottery wheel. I was drinking orange juice when she came in the room, and it came out my nose when I started laughing. After that, if I saw an advert for the Pottery Barn, or anything remotely related, I would start laughing so hard my sides would hurt. Making sure no orange juice was around the place, of course.

That first dress isn’t made from napkins but from very expensive toilet paper you can get at Williams-Sonoma for $59.95 a roll.

C’mon Spin, he doesn’t need any help with that annoying white bar already.

They need to get outside a bit more. That waxy pallor is rather unhealthy looking.

BG: I’d tell Nosmo to be nice; but, I am still grinning over exploding chestnuts. YOUCH!

The first model looks like she just finished crying her eyes out after seeing what she had to wear.
The bottom one just looks irked (cause Mr. Spam Filter probably wouldn’t let me say pi$$ed).

Of course he would, Jazz. Mr. Spam Filter isn’t Amish.

Do you suppose the nuns taught her not to wear patent leather shoes? Do you think women are well aware of how men think? Do you ever think you’ll figure a woman out?

An attractive blonde from Cork , Ireland arrived at the casino. She seemed a little intoxicated and bet
twenty-thousand Euros on a single roll of the dice.
She said, ‘I hope you don’t mind, but I feel much luckier when I’m completely nude’.
With that, she stripped from the neck down, rolled the dice and with an Irish brogue yelled, ‘Come on, baby, Mama needs new clothes!’
As the dice came to a stop, she jumped up and down and squealed…’YES! YES!
She hugged each of the dealers and then picked up her winnings and her clothes and quickly departed.
The dealers stared at each other dumbfounded. Finally, one of them asked, ‘What did she roll?’
The other answered, ‘I don’t know – I thought you were watching.’
Not all Irish are drunks,
Not all blondes are dumb,
But all men…are men.

I think first model was swollen eyes from an allergy to ugly clothing.
