Meet Miss Novelty Shop, 2007!

October 9, 2007

Ladies and gentlemen, is she a sport, or what? In the pageant’s tough competition, this young lady fell for every stale novelty we threw at her! The old soot-covered binoculars, the glow-in-the-dark lipstick, even the really cheesy bald wig!

Is Elmer Fudd off hunting wolves in Belarus, or do they just not have much of a firearm safety education program over there?

Guys, meet a real fashion model!

March 5, 2007

There was a time when being a model in Paris meant something glamorous, but today, when you can’t tell a haute couture runway from a set for the Addams Family, apparently things are different.

So, EXACTLY where do I have to hit my head?
