Sizzling hot fashions from a cold planet

October 7, 2011

Blog Guy, I have a complaint.

Like many of your readers, I mostly come here for news about fashion on the planet Neptune, but you haven’t had any since last February. Back then, you said fashion photos from the Hubble Telescope showed krunkwads were getting longer for the next season.

Now, what news on the Rialto?

Wait a minute, Ace. That Rialto thing is just a line from “The Merchant of Venice.”

So I don’t write all my own stuff. Big deal. I still need the latest fashion news from Neptune.

Okay, these recent photos show that women will be revealing more phleng this season, to the delight of…

Excuse me, Blog Guy, but that one model, with the camouflage covering her phlengboings.  Isn’t that Vladimir Lenin’s face on her collar?

Um, er, yes, it is.  My mistake. Only SOME of these photos are from Neptune. That other one is from Minsk.

Minsk? What a shame. They could sell that blouse in a heartbeat in the swankier Kwolies of downtown Neptune….

Sure they got plenty of Phleng, but can they do the Kessel run in less than 12 Parsecs?
I didn’t think so.

@Georgia…First one in front kind of resembles Diva Plavalaguna in “The Fifth Element.” Must be the Neptune variant.

That leading lady in the top picture has such a nice bucket of Mojitos on her head, completed with drinking hoses!

Love the phleng tag on this one Blog Guy! But I’m more of a ploobdirv man myself.

Adelaide might have been at that fashion show:

Take back your Minsk
Take back your pearls
What made you thinsk
That I was one of those girls

These creatures have long extensions on their feet parts. One hopes they don’t fall and bust their jorgums!

Sometimes I feel I’ve got to walk the runway,
I’ve got to hold sway
For the plain folks who want to tear at the heart of me.
The food we share seems to show nowhere.

And I’ve lost my lunch; I toss every meal.
I can’t eat…it’s just not right!
Once I ran to you
now I’ll run from you.

This model life I’m living
I give you all an alien could give you.
Take my meals and that’s not nearly all – oh
feinted love – feinted love.

Trust me Blog Guy, it didn’t go unnoticed or unnappreciated
I hear those Neptunians have an affinity for the Bard, or as they say Wyffnu Skaknir

Ooooh, fashion with watermelon bars instead of salmon bars just in time for Halloween!

Ah, BG, the quality of mercy is not strained; however, whatever is flowing through the feeding tubes is!
