When designers stay up past bedtime…

February 6, 2011


Um, Blog Guy, you write about fashion real good. We are two very famous designers, and we would like to have you cover our new clothes and stuff. Okay?

BRAZIL/Sure. If you’re really big designers, I’ll see your creations at one of the big international shows.

Oh. We can’t make it to those shows, so we’re sending you professional photos from an iPhone. Please use them in your blog.

Ah. Yeah, the pictures just arrived. Looking at these, I’m going to guess you guys are what, 12 years old, and you did this with Photoshop because girls won’t talk to you?

No! We are real designers! Why don’t you believe us?

Because these are the most infantile creations I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen a lot. If you’re legit, then maybe I could visit your studio tomorrow?

Tomorrow is no good, we have a math test. I mean, we’re meeting with big buyers.

Well, maybe some other time. What are your names, so I can watch for your label?

Names? Uh, we’re Bud Weiser, and um, Chris P. Bacon… That’s right…

Cool. I’m so sorry I ever doubted you, Mr. Weiser and Mr. Bacon…

Ah! I see they went to Baz’s school of pesky white bars, er, hands. Now THAT’s art.

Finger painting.

I once baked some cookies for one of my friends shaped like, oh, this is a family blog. Never mind.

There are two small aspects of the model in the top pic that just seem out of place. I wager it’s because that model is a dude.

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

So @ifly, you’re saying the dude looks like a lady?

Posted by Dave_not_dave | Report as abusive

@Dave, trying to anyway and in my opinion failing miserably.

@Spin, “a” zatoichi or “the” zatoichi?

Nice try, BG, at a cover-up. But, these photos really evidence that (ambidextrous) Lamar has been painting at the studio again, don’t they?

I’m, like, confused. Does the top model have a wart on each hand?

Lady, you’re supposed to appreciate this blog, warts and all…

Posted by rcbasler | Report as abusive

I thought the top one, at first glance, was a guy and the hands were blow up ones… as the “warts” looked like the inflation valve. Well I am half right!

@ladylala, and what appears to be enlarged spider bites underneath each hand. Dude should really check his pajamas before going to bed each night.

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

I’ve heard those can be removed. Warts, that is.

Posted by Dave_not_dave | Report as abusive

@ifly: That’s a web of lies. It’s not a dude, it’s a dudette. She’s wearing lipstick, for pete’s sake.

Posted by ladylala | Report as abusive

Ooooooh!!! This is could be one of those rare times when the boys dont like the models… and are glad for the white cross-b.. umm.. I mean hands… painted hands, never the less…

Lady or dude..that’s scary :D

Posted by fwd079 | Report as abusive

Did they trace around an actual hand for that white print? Now THAT would be a job worth blogging about, ey BG?

True enough. Brings to mind my item from last year about the world’s greatest job:

These fashion items are truly handy, and have been approved for sale in Europe by Nicolas Sarkosy and Silvio Berlusconi.

@Nosmo: got to hand it to you for that line as I am still chuckling.

@hsvkitty: inflation valves. LOL!

Happy Monday, everyone!
