Fattie Aussie Models Ruin Oz Fashion Week, Kicked Out of Oz Vogue

Look at these heifers! Ladies, please, cover yourselves -- you're repulsively enormous. While our own New York fashion week begins its weekend of anorexia-friendly fun, the Australian Fashion Week is still roiling in the aftermath of its own little Dreyfuss Affair. Seems that designer MaraJoara decided to champion "real women" by putting a few size 8-12 models on display along with the tiny waifs who can't keep their pants up over their skeletal pelvises. Though hardly even zaftig in any normal universe, models like those above caused much squawking among the Ozzie fashionistas. Even those who grudgingly admired the feminist statement couldn't help slamming the larger lassies' amateurish catwalking. Fashion organizers supposedly tried to get the designer to kick out the size 8-12s, but she refused; even though the fleshy models are calling it a win for their team, the puckish crones of Vogue Australia deleted coverage of the MaraJoara show from their website. Giant oozing lardos who look like they might actually consume food need not apply. Approved meals may consist only of champagne, Red Bull, cigarettes, and Vicodin.
well, yes...they do look like women, not prepubescent boys. i've always thought it's more of a test of a good designer; designing for a "real woman." as opposed to a clothes hanger. valleys and hills are always far more interesting than plains. i mean, look at oklahoma.

While we have nothing against thin people, we believe the perfect body size is attained through good nutrition, including a recommended daily allowance of pork and shellfish. Especially pork.
