Scrunchable


scrunch

Top four things to do with your $10 neon green scrunchie after Advertising tricked you into buying it:

4. Wipe the wet hot tears of regret from your eyes
3. Start a LOLROTFLMFAO time capsule to be buried in McCarren Park
2. Wear it around your wrist as a constant reminder of your consumptive failures
1. Your dishes

I remember loving my scrunchie... when I was 8 years old!! ;)

Brilliant! Who in God's name is going to wear scruchies on their legs or arms anyway?

Wildfell Hall Vintage said...

god every time you can see right up the poor girls nether regions in their ads, even with scrunchies....amazing they manage to do it really.

100% agree

Do scrunchies only work in the year 2010 if you wear large amounts of them and with your tatas out? Because if that chick walked by me, I don't care if she had both legs and both arms covered in scrunchies, I'd probably just be looking at her boobs. And I'm a lady. A married lady. With a daughter.
Your commentary is priceless.

man if i wore scrunchies all over my arms they'd totally obscure my slap bracelets.

Karen/Small Earth Vintage said...

Is this a freaking American Apparel ad? Because that's what it looks like. Only with scrunchies.

Amanda / Rust Belt Threads said...

HAHAHA. I don't know why, but this is reminding me of a pineapple or a poor Carmen Miranda.

Also, $10 each?!!?!?!?!

dude, i totally need to pull out all my old banana clips and sell them.
and yes, i did just date myself with the term "banana clip".
i will say, these seem like a very effective way to keep my bangs separated from my perm...

Lauren Bordelon said...

I used to have a machine that made scrunchies.

I'm more than a little disturbed by the girl's swimsuit and her lady-bits almost falling out of it. That being said, they are missing the ever-popular "fake-demim/chambray embroidered with crap" scrunchie. My mom got me one with Pooh on it. Get it? Pooh? Crap? hehe.

Kelly Lauren said...
