Thursdays are for What the Hell is This?

Scene: Design meeting for a well-known knitwear magazine.

"Come on, people, we've got to come up with something totally new. Something no one has ever done before that will be completely unflattering to every body type."
"How about an enormous, shapeless poncho?"
"It's been done to death."
"An enormous, shapless, belted poncho?"
"Wait a minute. Now we're getting somewhere. What else can we do?"
"Integrated belt holes!"

"Now what can we make out of pink mohair that would be completely unwearable?"
"Three words, boss. Balloon. Skirt. Dress."
"Well, I guess we can take an early lunch."
