Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Quick quiz: This photo from a fashion show illustrates:
a) The growing problem of headless models
b) A model who is too stupid to put her big sunglasses on right
c) A model who is too stupid to put her airline sleep mask on right
d) A model who enjoyed a little hanky-panky backstage before the show, and doesn’t think anybody will notice
e) A model who frankly is just counting the days until retirement…

Blog Guy, I know you’ve done security consulting for some major companies. Are you working with anybody now, or is that confidential?
I’ve recently been working with the Victoria’s Secret folks. Their supermodels are often the targets of stalkers, creeps and pervs. You know, basically the guys I call my readers.
Blog Guy, am I missing something? It’s the middle of February, and you haven’t posted any new Victoria’s Secret photos. Just warmed-over stuff from 2009. What’s up?
That’s what I’m trying to find out, stranger. I have some shots from a recent New York City event, but they are confusing and vaguely disturbing.
Blog Guy, I need your opinion on a pop culture phenomenon.
Have you seen this video on YouTube showing a guy in a financial office looking at racy photos on his computer, not knowing he’s live on television? It’s been seen by thousands of people now, and has a five-star rating…
Yeah, big deal. You can barely see that poor itty-bitty dude back there behind this talking head.
Sorry, this one is a bit anticlimactic since I’ve already posted several lists on the top blog posts for 2009, but for legal reasons involving off-shore gambling accounts and so on, I still need to identify this blog’s most popular posts for December.
Blog Guy, I have a complaint. Back in the old days you used to run photos of Victoria’s Secret models to make the point that they were getting too much news coverage.
But now, you seem to go out of your way to use as many as you can, for no apparent reason. It seems like you’ve lost your satirical edge, and just joined the enemy. I hope I’m wrong.
Blog Guy, you’ve been dissed by President Barack Obama. Just a few days ago you wrote about your children’s book, “The Steamy Lingerie Models who Saved Christmas,” which was supposed to take its place up there with “The Polar Express.”
Now, I see photos of Obama with some children, and he’s reading them “The Polar Express.” Why not your book? Why can’t those children hear the feel-good story of plucky models in their gyrocopters, saving Santa and the elves from the Nazis?
I got nothing and I’m in big trouble.
My publisher gave me a hefty advance to write a feel-good new Christmas story for children, to take its place up there with “The Polar Express” and such-like.
I’m required to use the phrase “Steamy Lingerie Models” in the title because it seems research shows that dads do 80 percent of the holiday book shopping for their kids.
Blog Guy, do you have anything special coming up in your blog for the holidays?
Yes, that’s what I meant by “Do I! “
Traditionally the end of the year is a time of lists and recognition, and I’m starting off tomorrow with the closely-watched Goofiest Photos of the Year announcement.
Then comes the Top Ten Blog Items of the Year as measured by reader page views, followed by my personal list of favorite posts for the year. And of course the annual Oddly Enough Blog staff photo, some thank-yous, etc.
