News, but not the serious kind

Welcome to our model town…

February 28, 2011

gown town this 490

(to the tune of Petula Clark’s “Downtown“)

When you want lookers
But you can’t afford hookers
Here’s the place to go, Gown Town

You’ll be a hero
‘Cause they’re all a Size Zero
If you find them in, Gown Town…

FASHION/NEWYORKLamar, come into my office…

Yeah, Boss?

We seem to have a REALLY beautiful crop of models for the fashion show today, and I don’t see anything wrong with them. Where did you find them?

I just drove the bus over to Gown Town and loaded it up. The gals there are happy just to have a bus ride, and we don’t even have to pay them.

Gown Town?

Sure, Boss. It’s a little place just up the road where all the women are drop-dead gorgeous, and they wear beautiful clothes and stiletto heels even to go to the library. They enjoy nothing more than being stared at by slobbering imbeciles like you and me.

gown town this 340Lamar! This is wonderful news! I’m SO happy! Is this all true?

Nah, I’m only jerking your chain, Boss. Today’s models are really just skanky transvestites. I put some LSD in your coffee so you wouldn’t notice.

Oh. Lamar, is that a lizard coming out of your lunch box?

When I see shoes,
My heart sings out loud
I drift along the seating rows
Just to get a look thats bound
to make the model hand over her heels
and then make me, in delight SQUEEAALL!!!
And like I always say….

SHOEEEESSSS!!!!!!!

I like the cropped jacket. If the models plan on wearing the sheer, short lace dresses this winter, they might want the jacket in a longer length.

Wonder if it is the pointy shoes or lack of nutrition preventing them from smiling?

Only thing missing is them carrying boxes of doughnuts. Now THAT’S hot!

“Nah, I’m only jerking your chain, Boss. Today’s models are really just skanky transvestites. I put some LSD in your coffee so you wouldn’t notice.” – that right there is hilarious. I feel like I just earned a drop to a lower of hell for thinking it was pretty darn awesome.

Wow! Those models just look thin or skinny, rather than dead and hideous. I’m impressed!

@Spin: They’re all model prisoners!

Transvestites on the
catwalk wearing trackers but
Shra wants all their shoes!

Jazz, I wouldnt want to have legs like them, or wear ankle bracelets that resemble tracking devices… and I couldnt carry off their clothes without wearing a long overcoat…

The only thing worth taking from them are their shoes..

I rest my case… bring me my meddies!!!

Points for the Robert Palmer connection. I was thinking Night of the Living Dead but it didn’t fit. Yet.

@Unca, ha ha ha..swizzle sticks! :D

The ankle bracelets serve a dual purpose. Not only are they tracking devices but they are supports to prevent their brittle ankles from snapping.
