Okay, who’s got my pajama top?

March 19, 2011

male models combo 490

Lamar, get your butt into my office! Is there some kind of labor unrest out there? I don’t like that.

I’m all over it, Boss. Some of the male models are kind of skittish over security concerns.

Security? Whatever for?

NIGERIAThere seems to be a feeling that our creations are total crap this year and that the crowd will get ugly.

But crap is all we produce, Lamar. Who’s complaining?

Oh, the guy who is wearing only pajama bottoms. He’s demanding that two thugs in bathrobes have his back at all times.

Sigh. Okay, Lamar. Anything else?

Yes. The model who’s wearing that tuxedo with short-shorts, he wants a bodyguard armed with something called a “Dane gun.”

A Dane gun? What do you think he’s afraid of?

I suppose he’s afraid of Danish people.

Well jeez, Lamar, who the hell isn’t?

Short shorts and a tuxedo? Does he plan on attending a wedding in the surf?

Robed guys are walking away with their heads down, sad because they didn’t get their gold chains.

Mr. Chain Male should give them his chains. He’d look just fine without them. Hey, unca lost some weight; you don’t suppose he’s taken up modelling, do you???

All the OE blog guys are hot.

Thanks for the eye candy, Blog Guy.

Why the heck would you wear shorts with elf shoes and a tuxedo top?

The armed dude better be careful – apparently those Dane guns can be deadly if not properly employed: http://bit.ly/ehwYJR

Dave: you are so right! He is not a Keebler elf, and looks like he does not eat cookies. That makes him a tad suspicious.

Maybe the guy was trying to make mango sauce, using the gun as a time saver. Alas, he ran out of time.

“Pie Iesu domine, dona eis requiem” 😀

@Dave, that was the most interesting interpretation of the word “pluck” by the unfortunate victim.

First you pick on the Dutch, now the Danes. You got something against Europe, Mr B?

Posted by ladylala | Report as abusive

Be accurate. First I picked on the Belgians.

@spin – maybe if he spent a little less time on the bench press, and a little more with a steam press, that issue would be resolved.

The twin hypothesis is good, but I’m more inclined to think the dude in pic #3 is wearing the trousers that belong with the top. Maybe pic #2 has been sent to retrieve them, and the two goons are protection.

CrowGirl, you hit it on the head… lol

If you look at all of this, those are pretty tame, um, designs, compared to some that we have been subjected to.

I, too, thank you for the eye candy!
