News, but not the serious kind

Finally, a job for you bikers…

ducati bikers 490

Blog Guy, I’m hoping I can get some of your famous job-hunting advice. I’m a guy who likes to ride motorcycles.

Ah. Any other skills?

ducati models 320Absolutely none.

Well, normally I wouldn’t have much to offer someone with your, um, limited qualifications.

However, I just saw this photo, and the caption says these are bikers undressing models during a lingerie fashion show in Lebanon. Does that appeal to you?

Hmmmm. Lebanon is over there in Europe or someplace, right?

ducati crop 320I think so. You could check a map. Is there some part of theĀ  job description you aren’t clear on? Let me just repeat it: “Bikers undress models…”

Ah. Now I get it. So would I have to work weekends?

Charlie Sheen would be overqualified for this kind of job.

Coincidentally I am going to debut my new motorcycle this weekend! Hey, would any of the lovely OE ladies like to volunteer to model? ;)

Love the boots, Mr.B…
The guys are BOUND to love the rest…;)

A snow fashion show? That would explain the tall boots; I am sure the rest of the outfit would keep her toasty warm…

Malt: you are a man of many talents.

ifly: ride safely and enjoy the weekend.

Ride on, Shra. We’re bound to like the rest. Oh, I meant “Right on” sorry… Freudian slip…oh…there I go again… no pun intended with the ‘slip’ thing of course.

Good to see they kept the helmets on. Safety first and all that.
Gotta say I would have expected that bikers undressing models would have involved more ripping, tearing and shredding.
Frankly, I’m just happy to be back home, where the ground doesn’t shake multiple times every day.

The ripping and tearing is there already Nosmo – you just didn’t notice it yet. First picture, you see the piece of clothing on the floor? Do you genuinely believe that material is enough for the top layers that were already removed? I don’t think so. Evidence 1.

Evidence 2: Second pic, check the right leg – see the position. I bet she got her leg muscles ripped off, torn ligaments or else she really needs the bathroom.

Oh, and in her case, there’s no sign of trousers. She must have come back from a Belgian protest.

Mighty pale and fairly healthy, for models. Wish I could roll out the “hog” for the nice OE ladies to model on. It is way sexier than those high-falutin’ things.

Part of an actual conversation that took place in my office this afternoon between two of my male colleagues:
Rocket Scientist #1 – Hey, in that second picture. It’s that chick!
Rocket Scientist #2 – What? Yeah, yeah, that chick from that movie.
RS #1 – Right. That movie about those things.
RS #2 – Yeah. Robots or something.
RS #1 – She wasn’t a robot though, was she?
RS #2 – Nope. But her boyfriend was. Or something.
RS #1 – Oh yeah. That movie sucked.
RS #2 – Yeah, but she is really hot.
RS #1 – She sure is. What does that article say? Something about her being a lesbian?
RS #2 – No no. Something about her being in Lebannon.
RS #1 – Oh right, the country. It’s really hot there.
RS #2 – Yeah. Not as hot as her though.

I wish I could report that at some point it got any better after this, but it didn’t.

You’ve made my day, Nosmo. That’s the demographic I’m after.

Good grin, Nosmo; welcome back! The tearing sound you hear could be velcro…

unca, scooters rock. As long as you and Georgette are happy, that’s all that matters.

Welcome back, Nosmo! RSes should know all about “hot”ness after all… :P
Cant help but think of the lyrics of a Shania Twain song… ;)

Glad to be back.
Anyplace where the ground doesn’t shake 11-17 times a day, you don’t have to boil the water before drinking it, and your car isn’t likely to be swallowed by a newly-formed sinkhole, is a good place to be.
I sustained some minor damage when an aftershock hit as I was on my mother’s roof making repairs. I didn’t so much fall off, rather the house actually dropped away from beneath me by a couple of inches, THEN I fell off the roof.

Nosmo: Ouch! Then you arrived home to the brilliant conversation about the model/actress not a robot. You really deserve extra doughnuts today.

Posted by Onedoor | Report as abusive
 

Ouch… thats scary…
Did you fall on your “bums of steel”?
P.S: My friend came up with the term as we were doing squats last night during boxing class.. :D

Saturday’s forecast has been changed from sunny and nice to morning rain. That annoys me. But hey any ladies that wanna model can still come by for a dress rehearsal. ;)
