Jay Peg

OK, the store has kept me tightly laced to its shoe wall this week*, so my writing has unfortunately been thrown into the backseat where it's impatiently kicking the passenger door and asking if we're there yet. We are not. I have several posts in various states of completion, all gestating in my drafts folder, patiently waiting for me to tack on their limbs and send them out into the world. Until then, here's more picture-based hilarity**.

This was the display outside Hollister in my local mall.

Obviously they have a deep understanding of their customer base.

And by that I mean men without functional genitalia.

* Watching 14 innings of Red Sox didn't help my productivity last night. All I accomplished was marring the wall when I threw a Dingo meat filled bone--the only object within reach--after Tampa Bay's Carlos Pena hit a game-winning three run dinger.
** This is really part of a much larger plan to attract more illiterates to the site.

That picture with your commentary was priceless. The full impact of the post might be lost on the illiterate, but I hear they are easily entertained.

I'd worry about repercussions from this comment, but hey, they can't read.

emmysuh said...

Mostly, I just wanted to comment so it would be grammatical correct with "two people love me" instead of "one people love me" which drives me crazy.

Just kidding, loved the post. I always forget my camera when I run into funny stuff like that.

Deutlich said...

HA! That would have me cracking up outloud in the mall.

My Life My Life My Life said...

ummm WOW.

S said...

I kind of feel like we interrupted the mannequins trying to "have fun"...only to realize the guy was missing necessary parts. how sad for them.

Or maybe that's just me?

rs27 said...

So I'm not supposed to look like that?

damn.

lacochran said...

He'll never be able to surf like that.

Two Left Feet said...

talk about "little man syndrome". i'd hate to know what you label THAT.

p.s. emmysuh... it's grammatically. =)

theloosemoose said...

Dibs on the eunuch!! Just because.

Chris Walker said...

"Obviously they have a deep understanding of their customer base ... men without functional genitalia."

That's brutal. I love it.

Andy said...

I wonder why only the male model is pants-less. That seems discriminatory.

Dexter Colt said...

I'm not buying it. You pulled that mannequin's pants down didn't you?

Luvvie (aka Queen IG) said...

LMAO @ the nudist mannequin. Hollister has to do better.

The IT Girl said...

Hahaha that's fantastic....wait, were YOU the culprit?

Have mental image of you running round pulling down the trousers of random mannequins.

J-Money said...

heinous: Yes, you're safe from the Illiterati unless someone translates your comment into pictograms.

emmysuh: Thanks for your commitment to grammar. I expect you to be the #2 commenter on all subsequent posts.

deutlich: Oh yeah. I snickered. And got some nasty looks for taking a picture of it.

mylife x 3: Exactly.

s: You may be onto something there. For some reason, that reminds me of prom.

rs27: You mean you're not supposed to wear a bikini top with a sweater? No.

lacochran: OK that? WAS AN AWESOME RESPONSE!

twoleftfeet: I wanted to search for some kind of tag that said "Attach genitals here" or something.

theloosemoose: I'll send him your email address.

chris walker: Calls 'em as I sees 'em...

andy: I fully expect you to liberate some female mannequins from their pants. In the name of gender equality, of course.

dexter colt: [hangs head in shame]

luvvie: If this had to happen at any mall store, Hollister was probably the least surprising. You rarely see this kind of thing at Ann Taylor.

the it girl: By "mental image" do you mean "surveillance footage"?

brookem said...

and they didn't even win! come.on.

Like a Bad Girl Straight to Video said...

hahaha. I HATE that store. Every time I walk by the entrance to it in the mall I am hit by a disgusting scent of cheap cologne and crappy made clothes (however those smell). It makes me gag every time.

Chardsy said...

That's how I picture most of my male friends, you know, without functioning genitalia. That is until we drink together and one of us does something stupid. (Ok, as I was typing this my fingers spelled out "someone" instead of "something" and I couldn't stop laughing)

The Imaginary Reviewer said...

That mannequin looks like it fell victim to a particularly ruthless bully. Or a rubbish one, who fancied bullying someone who wouldn't fight back.

Vava said...

Mission accomplished - add one more illiterate to your list. Also, you should know that I'm a Jays fan, so this may be the worst weekend for me to post my first comment on your blog...

The picture is funny but I burst out laughing at your commentary! I just discovered your blog and I'm smitten.
