Annoying J. Crew Model of the Week - 10/15/12

I present to you the Annoying J. Crew Model(s) for the week of October 15th!

In some of the previous Annoying J. Crew Model entries, I've pointed out some of the strange poses, such as the flamingo stands and the head shots, that the company periodically employs in a theme-like manner.  Currently, there seems to be another physical posture that's sweeping the hall of J. Crew, the arm-over-forehead look: 



Is this a pose of denial or shame, hiding your face from exposure, or a desire to air out your underarm?  You decide.

Toasted Health

Great for your health, and only half the nicotine, it's this week's installment of 

RETRO-ADTIVITY

Ah, the days when smoking was linked to fitness:  


And remember, it's toasted!  Are they referring to the lungs?

Ronald Had a Little Lamb

Apparently they are now serving lamb burgers at the McDonald's in Australia:  


I don't have anything against lamb as a food product, but there's something about this ad campaign that's just wrong.

Those crazy Aussies and their McDonald's advertisements!  Check out the earlier Aussie entry.  It truly sucks.

Annoying J. Crew Model of the Week - 10/8/12

As predictable as seasonal influenza, it's time for this week's Annoying J. Crew Model!


She loves her bag.  I mean, she really loves her bag.  

That ain't healthy.

Boppo Breath


It's something even Boppo found out, this week's   

RETRO-ADTIVITY
A classic Colgate advertisement, featuring Boppo the Clown!


In the words of Al Wirtes, who kindly alerted me to this ad, "Run, Celeste!  Run!"

Freaky Cupcake

I was in the store the other day and happened upon this Hostess package: 


There's something about the cupcake dude that really freaks me out.  This seems like something that clowns would eat.

Also, is it me, or does the cupcake's swirly front hair remind me of TV's Frank from MST3K?

Sharing My Sausage

Today's entry comes from our ol' pal, Brian Donahue, a guy who was right there at the birth of The Gallery of the Absurd, performing the role of a metaphorical midwife.  Recently he found this image in The Costco Connection, a "lifestyle magazine for Costco members":  


As Brian told me, this image seems to scream out, "Hey ladies...How 'bout I bring my sausage to your tailgate?"  Let's take a closer look at this Costco dork, shall we?


As the old saying goes, sometimes you just don't want to know how the sausage is made.
