Fashion models are fit to be tied?

June 15, 2011

Lamar, we’ve got another big fashion show today, and money is still very tight.

Did you manage to find us some inexpensive models?

I sure did, boss. I’d introduce you but they’re tied up right now.

Well, I’d sure like to see them, Lamar. Are they really that busy?

No, not busy, just tied up, like I said.

I figured if I tied up some women and bought ’em in for  the show, then our only cost is 50 yards of clothesline. That’s it.

LAMAR! Are you insane? That’s kidnapping! It’s illegal in many states!”

No, they volunteered. I just found wannabe models and asked if they’d like me to show them the ropes.

Oh, that should put us on a firm legal footing then.

Besides, Boss, who knows? This rope thing could become the next big look.

Six months from now, chicks could be dressing just like this when they go for an evening out.

True, Lamar. I guess it could have benefits. It would sure keep them from texting all evening…

Were the tag words placed in that order on purpose?

Lamar missed an angle the boys would have liked in that first pic…
Are these wedding dresses by chance?

Like the black dress with a few OBVIOUS alterations…

Pastor to Lamar: Did you take this woman….
Lamar: I did. Oh,hey, wait just a minute.
Pastor: I now pronounce you….

These must be from the Abduction! fashion label.
Think of the saving in duct tape and rags! Now all you have to provide is a vehicle with a sound-proof trunk.

@Shra – I can see what you mean. You really need it to tie at the front

I agree with Shra. That black dress is on backwards…

How simply unfortunate then. :p

So THAT’S why they’re so thin. Someone ties them up so they can’t eat! 😉

Wait’ll my sister sees this!

Here comes the bride
Very nicely tied.
With her choice of frock
Looks like she’s headed for wedlock.

Shra: “Lamar missed an angle the boys would have liked in that first pic…”

True – but I guess he also missed another angle in each one of the pictures – no shoes are showing!

I guess Lamar is bound to make such mistakes…

Nah, Spin, got nothing against the hair colour…
I was more thinking along the lines of removing those shackles, but what the heck, might as well keep them on.. :)
