WARNING: avert your gaze!

October 22, 2011

Blog Guy, as the proprietor of a very visual blog, can you tell me the easiest way to get people to look at a photograph?

Sure. Just tell them not to. It’s simple reverse psychology. For example, DO NOT look at the picture in this blog.

Okie dokie. You got it, Blog Guy.

Wait a minute! Hold on. You’re REALLY not going to look?

Of course not. I know you must have a good reason to tell me not to look, and whatever it is, that’s enough for this simple country girl.

Then you’re one person in a billion. Nobody else would…

Aiiiiiiieeeeeeeeee!!!!! It hurts so much! My eyeballs are exploding!!!!!! What have I done? What have I done?

You’ve restored my faith in humanity, that’s what. Have a great weekend.

“Jewels,” the young woman I mentioned some time ago, once told me that if I ever got cellulite, it would be around my lips.

I likey airplanes. I think the chick needs to get her roots done. Ladies no doubt you would agree it’s like she has a black hole on her scalp!

When you’re right, you’re right. But when you’re thong, you’re very, very wrong.

A haiku appropriate for the day:

Than which has been seen
cannot be unseen. I get
the eye bleach next, please!

@inebgreen – I would say that the salmon bars got swallowed along with the suit…

@justCAM and Blog Guy: OK, I acquiesce. Who knew there was a timing and ownership issue? I’ll go back to my own thing: haiku.

That’s quite the outfit
For watching the jet air show
Israeli fashion?

BG … I’m wondering why you didn’t tag this post with Victoria’s Secret? That’s clearly where he got the duds.

@Shra, RE Memory Eraser: I think I saw one on top of the president’s bus during his recent bus tour through North Carolina, but I can’t quite remember.

I had no idea it was possible to have fat elbows. I’m sort of impressed.

Posted by CrowGirl | Report as abusive

Ahh, thanks Moon.. Guess I will have to browse through their catalogue now.

@justCAM: For what it’s worth, that can’t be my brother. He doesn’t like to wear red.

Breitling jets fly past?
Just wear your red thong buddy
