And as soon as that happens I'll be dating Elin Nordigren. You have your dreams, I have mine. Neither one will happen, though.

Talbots is better than LL Bean's clothes. Talbots might be old lady clothes, but Bean makes you look like a lesbian!

Apply for a Obama bailout NOW. Where will Queen Michele shop for clothes? K-Mart with the rest of the unemployed.

Doors to all ice cream parlors and clothing stores should be 18 inches wide.

Don't get all huffy. I was implying and should have clarified (my fault) that your post was about the only sensible and serious one, and you shouldn't care if or how it was judged. I've never bothered to look and consider it a wasted option. I agree with what you said.

No, short spiky hair makes you look like a lesbian.

I heard of Larry Talbot in the original "Wolfman" movie from 1940.
Aren't these stores for the Big & Fat women? The hefers...Moooo.
And to think Talbot's strategy of offering free cases of Snickers candy
bars didn't work out. Mooooooooooooooooooooo.

Dude, you make no sense. And obviously you've never been in a Talbots. They are not a plus-size store. They are geared to wealthier women (or women who think they are) and their fashions look like things my mom or grandma would wear. Definitely not "modern" styles. It's What Not to Wear heaven.

So if I get my hair spiked and shop at LL's I might score some lesbian chicks?

If by 'score' you mean getting your butt kicked by some heavy-duty hiking boots, then yeah, you might.
