Bleu video: a sexy homage to fromage?


Bob, it’s me. Your boss. Remember we discussed increasing traffic to your blog? Huh?

Sure, Boss. I’m supposed to blog on Saturdays and Sundays too, 365 days a year, and never take a day off because “days off are for losers,” right?

Yes, but we also discussed targeting content to your key audience. Our demographic research shows your readers are very interested in two things: sexy chicks and cheese.

That’s it? Not bullfighting or goofy faces or travel or dumb outfits?

No. Just chicks and cheese. So go out and find some gorgeous models and some tasty-looking cheese, and do a video clip for your blog so it can go viral.

Miracle on 38th Street?

Blog Guy, I need some travel advice. I’m going to New York City this week, and I want to make sure I see the city’s famous magical Christmas window displays. I know about Bloomingale’s, Macy’s, Tiffany, but I don’t want to miss anything. What’s the very best holiday window display?

You must see the one at Fifth Avenue and 38th Street, where models are stripping down to their underwear and lounging around in a store window with lots of skin showing, attracting huge holiday crowds.

Now he’s just pandering to the masses!

More gratuitous Victoria’s Secret shots?


Blog Guy, don’t get me wrong. I love the fact that you post fresh stuff on Saturdays and Sundays, and I enjoyed learning about balloon animal makers and naked hokey pokey this weekend.

Thanks. But?

Well, I thought maybe if you used a few more gratuitous photos from the big Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in New York it might artificially pump up your weekend numbers. I know it’s a cheap trick, but times are hard.

Who appraised it, Bernie Madoff?


Okay, this is the point we’ve come to in America.

We are told in a bunch of captions that this is a $3 million bra, but we are given no clue as to why it costs at least two and a half million dollars more than a regular bra.

Here are some possible reasons for that price tag, but these are only wild guesses…

I see Belgium, I see France, I see lots of underpants


Wouldn’t you love to see underwear from the very most famous person in Belgium?

Well no, I don’t actually know who that is. I was hoping you would.

Anyway, an artist in Brussels has just opened the Musee du Slip, featuring framed underwear donated by mostly Belgian artists, singers and politicians.

Oy Vaycation!


Blog Guy, I could use some travel advice. I’m going to Israel tomorrow, and I need to know what clothes to pack. I want to blend in, and not take a lot of stuff I won’t wear.

Four words for you. Fruit of the Loom.


I checked the last few photos we have showing people in Israel, and it seems all they wear this time of year is underwear.

Waiter, there’s a hair in my… Oh, it’s mine!


It’s time again for Fashion Mailbag, where we solve readers’ unusual wardrobe dilemmas.

Earl, from Utah, writes, “I have a problem with nose hair. Mine grows very fast, like six inches in an evening, until matted black tufts dangle in my soup. Help!

The Wide World of Lingerie?


I’m doing a survey on media photo coverage of sports. May I ask a few questions?

Sure, if I can go ahead and watch my “Hogan’s Heroes” reruns while we talk.

Maybe the worst idea EVER?


Every so often an idea comes along that is so awful it makes me wonder why there isn’t a “Bad Idea Hall of Fame” or maybe a “Bad Idea Olympics.”

Meet the “marriage hunting” bra, unveiled today in Tokyo.

It features a digital marriage countdown clock and, being a bra, it is worn around the midriff. I’m not making this up.
