I love it when I stumble upon a section of the PG that I hadn’t yet visited … and then immediately spew my diet Coke all over my monitor at the absolute hilarity on my screen.
Case in point, PG’s fashion editor LaMont Jones has a Q & A. I did not know!
It would appear that Lamont does NOT know a joke email or satire when he sees one:
Q: I think it’s very, very, very, sexy for me to wear low-rise jeans and then for me to pull my thong up very high on my waist so that the sides of the thong show above my pants. I really get a reaction out of people at the grocery store and when I go to pick up my dog at the dog day-care place, and at church. And you should see the guys at the clubs when I walk in. But my boss has told me that even though Friday is casual Friday, it’s inappropriate for me to wear my thong like that. Is this workplace discrimination and harassment? I don’t want to get in trouble at work or suffer a professional failure just because I am so smokin’ hot, but I also like to express myself through fashion. What could I do?
— CASSIE KELLER,
Overland Park, Kan.
LaMont then goes on to give answer to this question. I’ll let you go read it if you wish, but it isn’t really important.
There are a couple of things that clue me in here that this is NOT meant to be a serious question, but perhaps a satire on the girls that wear their thongs showing when they go to clubs or whatnot, or simply a joke email.
- Could Cassie Keller be so totally stupid to use her real name on this email?
- Would Cassie Keller REALLY wear a thong showing to church? That is completely Twainish of her to start out at places that she might actually show a thong at and then end with a place that no human with any sense of socially acceptable norms would show a thong intentionally.
- Doesn’t “because I am so smokin’ hot” sound like something PittGirl would say when she is in SATIRE/JOKE mode?
- The “very, very, very” threw me too for some reason.
Or, I’m completely wrong and Cassie Keller is a total slut with absolutely no social skills.
