Your eyelids are getting heavy, and it’s not just the makeup

February 21, 2011


Lamar, we’ve got another fashion show today and our finances are still in the toilet. Do you have any new ways to save money?

hypnisis fashion vertical 220You bet I do, Boss. I’ve been hypnotizing the models backstage while I put on their makeup.

See, they’re out on the runway right now under hypnosis, and afterward they won’t remember they did anything, so we won’t have to pay them.

I don’t know about this, Lamar. Is it legal?

It’s a gray area, Boss. Check it out. “Tiffany, watch the makeup brush go back and forth, back and forth, back and forth…

But Lamar, the hypnotized girls look very much like the zombies we used to use, so why don’t we just get them again?

It’s a whole lot harder to clean up after the zombies, Boss.

hypnosis fashion this 240Well, okay Lamar, but only if you’re absolutely sure you know how to bring them out of it.

Huh? What does that mean, Boss?

Is wearing faux fur still a faux pas? Wait! Don’t answer that. I know Shra has her taser warmed up, and is itching to use it.

Besides, the Zombie models eat the brains of the audience, resulting in an excess of fashion designers and critics.

Either that photo is the wrong way up and the model is having her make-up applied while hanging upside down, or she is justifiably wondering what the heck just happened to her hair.

Is that a doughnut she has hidden in her hair?

Is she Hulga’s sister or Cam’s sister?

Number 3 appears to be wearing a giant snake.

Very astute observation there, CG…
I think it could be a really long lizard, posing as a snake.. you know faux snake?

I think we’ve all been hypnotized by reading this blog. Wake me up when it’s over. Who are these people? Why do I have this intense craving for doughnuts? :-O

2nd pic reminds me of a particular part in the movie, starring Cameron Diaz, “There’s Something About Mary”. At one point her hair stands on end like the girl in the picture.

I doubt the model used the same…hair-raising(?) agent for her hairdo as Mary did in the movie…

Malt, very funny that you should mention that… I saw “There’s Something About Mary”, last night… and the hair raising part was quite ..umm…. hair raising :D

Mary was very surprised when her headlice, in order to further their demands for a democractic homeland, detonated a tiny thermonuclear device on her head.

What a coincidence Shra..hehe ;) That part is absolutely hilarious…at least I laughed a lot. Then again I laugh at anything. Even at these blogs…so. ;)

The question is, do you laugh at these blogs with or without medication, Malt?? :D
