Friday Caption Contest Results: House of Dereon Edition

Monday, May 12th, 2008
By raincoaster

This was a contentious one. There was, naturally, unanimity in the TeenyManolosphere on the unattractiveness and inappropriateness of these outfits, but I, personally, was shocked by the fact that no-one singled that ridonkulous hat out for particular ridicule. Honestly, that poor girl looks like Gumby! No, not the one you’re thinking of: that one looks like a gay Huggy Bear.

In any case, it’s time to announce the winner of the most hotly-contested caption contest since the Junior Justice League:

House of Dereon junior

pomme Says:

Delurking to suggest:
“Honey, I Shrunk the Pussycat Dolls”

And the virtual rewards of de-lurking are both hypothetical and fabulous: the eye-catching, yet tasteful Nahui Ollin New Ritual Tote.

Texas Prom Dress Debacle

Seventeen year old Marche Taylor from Texas found herself handcuffed and led away by police instead of attending her senior prom.


Prom chaperones said her dress violated the dress code, and told her to leave.  She disagreed, apparently an argument ensued, and eventually the police arrived.

The video below is a news clip from a Houston station covering the story.

What say you? Was the dress too much? Should the school have offered her some sort of compromise, which she claims they did not? 

Monday Teeny Poll

When asked the question last week, “Is our society today too “kid-centric?” thirty six percent of you stated yes indeedy, it is.  A surprising fifteen percent agreed with Whitney Houston, and a nice chunk of you at twenty six percent decided to completely cheese out on answering.   Remind me never to take you shopping with me, ‘k?

As for this week’s burning question, I’m interested in what you think about surrogate mothers. Well, in fact, what you think about yourself becoming a surrogate mother. And I’m not giving you an easy out this time, either.
