1. My daughter has been pouring over the Halloween costume catalogues. (At the moment, she is partial to Little Red Riding Hood.)
While looking at these fun costume selections, I ran across this one...
...and all I could think was--My husband would rather have scalding oil poured over his head than wear this get-up. Also, who exactly would wear this get-up? And finally, does anyone really look hot in lederhosen?
(See above photo...that's as good as it's gonna get).
Additional emasculating costumes include a caveman tunic...
...and a giant sock monkey.
Here's the link to Wishcraft for your enjoyment!
This is the most hilarious review of LUMBERJACK IN LOVE ever! Here's a quote...
