Well, look who’s behind bars!

October 10, 2011

Blog Guy, I know you cover all the big fashion shows, and my sister-in-law’s ventriloquist told me there were some HUGE celebs at Lisbon Fashion Week this year. Can you give us some names?

I can do much better than that, I can show you pictures. Here is you-know-who, above, making a very rare public appearance…

Wait a minute, Blog Guy. You’ve put one of those rectangular censorship bars over her face, so I’m not quite sure who that is.

No, that’s not my style. My readers know that I always use the salmon-colored censorship bars, as you can see here on the right. I’m afraid that black bar is an actual accessory.

So she’s really wearing that?

Of course! She wore it just in case nobody recognizes her anymore. The very, very famous often do that in public, to draw attention to themselves so they can complain about not having privacy.

Gosh, you know so much about how these things work, Blog Guy. So, the woman behind those rectangles is…

Er, I was hoping you would know. I’m leaning toward Amelia Earhart.

It’s probably Cyclops, from the X-Men. Don’t let her take that contraption off her face.

My vote is that it’s Jean Seberg, and we’ve gone back in time.

Ah yes! The Infamous Salmon Bar strikes again!

@Dave: I love xkcd, and that one is absolutely perfect.

Fellow commenters: I posit that the salmon bar is the physical incarnation of Mr. Spam Filter.

I like the quirky smile, but the angle of her shoulder implies she’s actually a skelly…

Is that a Coca-Cola employee confessing she actually prefers Pepsi?

She’s an evil-doer who has kryptonite on that chain around her neck, ready to weaken Superman with it.
