naked barbies tutorial

There are people who are worried that Barbies give little girls unrealistic expectations about their bodies.

Italian Hookers Have New Habits

While every girl wants to stop traffic, Italian women are being accused of causing car accidents because they’re so damn sexy. Due to these ridiculous claims, the governments in Rome, Milan, and Florence have just passed laws decreeing that women dress and act more modestly. The legislation states that women must refrain from “adopting poses or behavior or wearing clothing that unequivocally manifest the intention to solicit or practice the activity of prostitution.” Say what?!

So what are working girls doing in these difficult times for advertising their goods? The world’s oldest profession is pulling one over on “the man” by taking up a new habit — literally. All the hookers have banded together and begun to wear nuns’ uniforms. Ha! Pia Covre, of the Committee for the Rights of Prostitutes, explained, “The idea of wearing gowns or habits down to the feet is to confront the decrees which limit even the freedom of what you can wear.” Ironically, now these whores are sticking it to the foolish Madonna complex. We like their sense of style!
