Fashion is dumb...continued

A model wears a creation by French fashion designer Pierre Cardin during the presentation of his entire Spring-Summer 2009 and Autumn-Winter 2009 collections at his villa in Theoule sur Mer, southern France, Monday, Oct. 6, 2008.

Why didn't someone tell me the blueberry quesadilla Starter jacket was back in style?

I have to be honest. The sexy Grimus look gives me a boner.

Were you trying to say "Grimace"?

Sorry for the misspelling. I no longer read the McDonaldland newsletters.

It's OK this time, just don't let it happen again, or you'll have Mayer MicCheez knocking on your door...

Fucking awesome:

A Lakeside-area man was arrested Friday afternoon by Oregon State Police (OSP) after he was cautioned and then later spotted riding an adult -sized tricycle under the influence of alcohol on a local street.

At about 2 p.m., OSP Trooper Dave Timm contacted a group of intoxicated people at Tenmile Lakes County Park. One of the individuals identified as William David Bjorkquist, 58, from Lakeside, told Timm that he was going to ride his purple "Miami Sun" adult-sized tricycle home. Timm told him not to ride the tricycle because of his obvious intoxicated condition. Bjorkquist agreed not to ride, and his friends said they would help him push it home.

Since we're talking McDonald's, I'll never look at Ken Norton again without thinking of the nickname bestowed upon him by his Cowboy teammates. Pure genius.

Don Evans - Noah Wyle
Paul Wolfowitz - Dennis Boutsikaris
General Tommy Franks - Michael Gaston

I just received a work email from a "Hugh Johnson". It is completely legitimate...and yet I've been laughing so hard for 10 minutes I can't even type a reply.

Scott Glenn, William & Mary Class of . . . a long time ago. And Mark thinks we're old.

Rob...they dubbed Norton "Mac Tonight" because his enormous chin made him bear a striking resemblance to the crooning moon from the McDonald's commercial of the day that sang, "Its Mac tonight".

If you remember what the moon looked like its pretty damn funny.

Chicken Little news of the day:

- Rumors are out there that Morgan Stanley will not survive because the Japanese bank that was to buy a 25% stake has backed out. Stock down 25% (it was down 40% 30 minutes ago).

- Ireland has personally guaranteed all bank deposits for their six banks. However, they don't have sufficient reserves to cover all deposits. And, as an EU country, they can't just turn on the printing press. Smarter folks than I are scratching their heads at that one.

- Iceland on the verge of national bankruptcy. There's only 200 K of them, so who cares, right?

Ask and the ghoogles shall provide...

rob said...

indeed, that's quite a resemblance. if you guys need me, i'll be outside burying my money in my backyard.

Mark said...

All my money's stuffed in a mattress or hidden in cans of peaches, so I think I'm set at this point. Well, at least until the zombies come for us...

Zoltan said...

I did a google image search for Ken Norton Jr. and found this:

Neither guy looks like the moon.

The zombies are financially sound. The vampires on the other hand are as good with money as Mike Tyson.
