Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
This is a very common problem. Some women find it useful to be holding something in their hand when they first meet a new guy, to help get the conversation started.
You know, something the guy will have to comment on. Do you have anything like that?
Yes! I love my picture of Lenin!
Okay, yes I guess a wallet-size photo of a former Beatle could be a conversation starter.
The five most popular items were divided between guns and freakish fashion.
That’s useful in identifying my demographic, as well as in giving me a good reason to move to Yemen and change my phone number.
Boss, those models are back complaining again.
Boy, it’s always something with them. What is it this time?
They haven’t eaten since 2006. Look at that one on the runway, with the spindly legs and her pelvis protruding through her skin…
I don’t see anybody. Oh, wait, I do see a white bag and a headscarf. Look, if they want to be fashion models, they need to weigh less than 40 pounds. Them’s the rules.
Okay cheerleaders, I think we can learn something from the fashion industry.
As many of you know, some design houses have started using dog groomers to style hair for their fashion shows, trying to cut costs in these difficult times.
So now we’re trying the same thing to get our cheerleaders ready to perform.
Our big cost-saving idea of hiring dog groomers to do our models’ hair helped a lot, but look at what we’re spending on lipstick! We can’t keep buying makeup this way!
What? Yes Judy, I guess you COULD say the lipstick problem has us “going down the tubes,” if you want to be really lame about it…
Blog Guy, you’re an expert on police operations around the world, right?
So I was wondering, what are the very best and very worst police departments? I’m counting on you.
The worst may be these police in Mumbai.
Check out this photo. Looks like all of them are groping for bullets while balancing their rifles between their knees, with the barrels pointed up towards their faces.
Blog Guy, I’m curious about the psychology of fashion models. Do they just wear anything they’re given, or do they have strong personal feelings about the creations?
That is a very astute question. Usually, a model wears any piece of rancid garbage some nutjob designer wraps around her wispy body.
Wait. You think I’m just acting?
You seem to be all talk and no action. Are you actually DOING anything to make things better?
I agree completely. Uh, which fatal flaw do you mean?
Oh please. There is a certain group in our society that is shunned. Due to petty prejudices, they are not allowed to create designs for the big fashion shows. You MUST know who I mean!
