Bacon dress!

Posted on Categories:Uncategorized Leave a comment

thanks to Ben for this link to the Bacon Dress. You can read much more about it here.

Of course, you’d want to equip with this and these. and don’t forget this. If you’re wearing it to a party (which I hope you are, because wearing a bacon dress to sit around at home and get grease on your own couch seems pretty sad), you could wrap a present in this. If someone gets too close to you with their fork, you could cover the resulting puncture wounds with these.

But I still don’t know what this is all about.

Condom Dresses, once again

Posted on Categories:Uncategorized Leave a comment

appears like the condom gown is an attention-getter that just doesn’t quit. since the last time I published about them there’s been an entire condom-clothing fashion show in China, to commemorate world population Day (and to publicize the 4th China Reproductive health and wellness new Technologies & products Expo, held in Beijing back in July).

What I want to understand is, why don’t I ever see any type of MEN’S garments constructed out of condoms? Aren’t they the ones who are supposed to be doing the covering up? Where are the three.jpgece condom business suits? I assumption it’s just one more instance of that old, tired story of birth manage being seen as completely the woman’s responsibility.

That said, this bit number is kinda cute. I’d like to see a re-interpretation of the condom gown where all the condoms were really ersatz condoms made from silk organza. (It would definitely be more comfortable to wear!)

If you click with on the photo you’ll see the original publish featuring the story, with all the stuff-made-from-condoms you might ever desire to see. however be careful, a few of the photos there look as if they may at any type of time ended up being Not risk-free For Work. as well as oh, lord, I can’t wait to see what type of ads Adsense serves as much as this post!

party tips!

Jeannette Marie sent me a link to a pattern auction on eBay (from seller Farfalla design studio check them out, they have good stuff!) that included this gem:

This was a clipping that the seller found in the pattern! I don’t think I’m going to use any of these suggestions at my next party. Although I might pass this around to scare people. “Just imagine 10 or 12 young boys all yodeling at the same time”? No, thank you.

I like to imagine this sort of stuff was written by mostly-drunk, completely hard-boiled, oft-divorced newspapermen who were kept out WWII by bad ankles, and was hammered out on typewriters with stuck “j” keys …
