Once again, I have opened
my home my blog to all of you good people out there, and had you all send me your very own submissions to be used for this week’s whacked. And you did not disappoint. Here they are:
The first of our submissions is from the very shutter happy and always eagle-eyed Jana of Shut the Front Door. For this week’s whacked she has captured the always elusive, but frequently nutty Squirrel Car.
I guess it’s good to let everyone know. I mean, she’s proud to be a black girl! Rock on, sistah. Just be careful of the po-po. You’re kinda making it easy on them to profile you, is all I’m saying.
Next we have a submission from my homegirl Becca, from I’m Pretty Sure That. She caught this wonderful license plate, which is sort of unintentionally boastful about the driver’s sexual prowess:
Next is a shot taken on the move by Jaclyn of Nursery Rhymes and Curse Words.
I will let Jaclyn explain: I think it would be less weird if the entire outfit was from an aerobics video in 1985, but the shoes and blazer with her hot pink, shiny lycra leggings was just about the oddest thing I’ve ever seen.
And once again, children . . . leggings as pants = wrong. I don’t care if you ARE in an 80′s work out video with Jane Fonda!!
Next we have Bill from The Authentic Life, who is always on the look out for scantily dressed menfolk to take pictures of. To send to me, of course. Only for that purpose, alone!
This was taken in Vegas, by the way. So that makes a little more sense, right?
Next is Jayne of Ach du Lieber, Jayne. She apparently happened upon some sort of biker rally (or maybe participated in?), and captured some truly exquisite sights:
Are bikers supposed to have faux hawks? Isn’t that a bit too un-hardcore? Kinda the antithesis of the biker creed, no?
And then this gem:
And she was a good girl and made sure she waited to get the backside view as well:
Our next submission is from my good friend Red of Doesn’t Speak Klingon. She happened upon these lovely items in a store near her newly relocated abode:
So, either she was in a some country and western type store that caters to rednecks, or was raiding Larry the Cable Guy’s closet. Either way, there is some fine fashion in her area.
Red captured this one at a fair. She was so fearful that this poor girl’s phone was gonna fall right out of her mesh see through pocket!!
I think this is the country fair version of matching jogging suits. The couple coordinated with their black t-shirts, camo shorts and cowboy boots. Awww, ain’t they just as cute as a sow’s ear?
And following up on this look is Brett of The Transformed Nonconformist, who is Red’s boyfriend and was also at this same fair with her. He captured this:
Yeah, wearing your cowboy boots with daisy dukes is really a look that never goes out of style, is it? Hello?
Next is my good friend Leauxra of Does This Make My Blog Look Fat. She captured some very interesting items:
That is some mad skill right there, y’all. Just riding along on his unicycle, off to work or school or maybe his job as a stripper? But that takes some major concentration to ride on that thing, I’m sure. Too much to remember to wear a shirt, apparently.
I will freely admit that when Leauxra sent this to me, I totally didn’t get it. Then she explained that Cthulhu is a character from one of H.P. Lovecraft’s stories. I have not read much (any?) Lovecraft, so I was totally in the dark. Apparently, he is the ultimate evil creature. So there you go. Now this makes perfect sense!!
This next one is from my good friend Thoughtsy from Thoughts Appear. She caught a pic of this sweet young thang just walking along in her best short, sparkly, off the shoulder dress, clunky heals and shiny turquoise purse:
The thing is . . . according to Thoughtsy, this was not a young thing at all, but a woman in her mid-60′s. Rock on, slutty gramma!!
I realized mid-way through doing this post that I have just too many submissions. Yeah, I’m a really good planner like that. Shut it. So, what I am going to do is make this a 2-parter. This will be our first installment of submitted pics, and next Friday I will post on the rest of the awesome submissions. So Val, Jen, Mandi, Gen & Jules . . . I have not forsaken you or your fantastic submissions. I will show them next week, I promise!
But what this also means is that you have more time!! I will give everyone until next Wednesday, June 27th, to send me any other pics you might have or will take between now and then. Get those cameras out and start snapping. With this ridiculously hot weather we are having (at least in my area), there are some fine specimens of nearly clothed people. Document that shiz and send it on over. mistyslaws at gmail dot com.
