The WORST men’s fashions: crapfest on the catwalk!


As a former male model myself, I have to say that… What? Oh, sorry, I’ve just been told that having my picture in my high school yearbook doesn’t technically make me one of those. How embarrassing.

Anyway, I was going to say that lots of readers ask me why real guys would dress in some of these outfits you see here from major international fashion shows.

Generally, the way it works is like this. On the morning of the fashion show, their wives and children are taken from them and moved to a secret location, where they are forced to eat Brussels sprouts and listen to Barry Manilow if the models don’t wear these designer “creations.”

If the models play ball, the families are returned safely after the show, the stench of Brussels sprouts still clinging to their clothes.

A holiday gift from Shameless to Nameless

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.

Read us about the steamy models, Mr. President!

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.”

VICTORIASSECRET/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?

The Steamy Lingerie Models who Saved Christmas!


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.

Hey look! It’s Super Wastebasket Man!


Fashion Show security staff. Come in, please. Give me a situation report on the nude intruder we found backstage.


Yes sir, we apprehended him. He claimed he was a male model in the show, but he was buck-naked and deranged.

I see England, I see France, I see special underpants…



I tend to have to take a lot of crap from female readers who say that I use too many photos of attractive women and not enough of men.

So this one is for you complainers.  Shots of  trim, fit, muscular, buff young male models, displaying underwear for surprised pedestrians from glass window boxes in Madrid.

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?

A spike in designer sales?


Blog Guy, I need some dating fashion advice.

I’m a normal young woman, and I often find that on a first date with a guy I meet online, he only has one thing on his mind, if you catch my drift.

What I’m looking for is an outfit to wear that is attractive and shows I’m fun, but also sends the message that we should take it slow, if you catch my drift.

Now he’s just pandering to the masses!
