Have you not laughed in a while?

Okay then.  Click on this, and know that it's real.  

I'm serious, that's a real "look" and the company fully expects people to buy into it.  I'm so glad I'm done having kids.  

Oh, and I feel old.  Like Winona Ryder-at-the-end-of-Edward-Scissorhands,- sitting-in-her-wheelchair old.    American Apparel?  You age me, and I hate you for it.  If I saw you in the streets, I'd kick you in the nuts.  Unless you were pregnant, in which case I would just give you a unitard wedgie.

Remember those elastic towels from the eighties? I feel like American Apparel is out to convince us all that this is the future and that we should be willing to pay dearly for it or else they might convert their "fun", "legal!" work environment into a pit of despair, leaving the trailer park grandmothers who wish to buy those truck stop dollies with yellow yarn hair for their "kids" at Christmas to look elsewhere for a second minimum wage job. Well, the joke's on them because those ladies' lives suck anyway.

I always feel depressed after seeing American Apparel ads...it's not that they make me feel old, per se, but they make me feel like I'm looking at a porn director's inventory of head shots just before he decides which he'll choose to "star" in his latest masterpiece, circa 1983.

That is a fashion don't especially for a pregnant person. The only thing that troubles me more than the unitard is why the top of your blog has an advertisement for the abandoned baby center and also for the bacon felt company. What is Bacon Felt? Do they make Unitards out of it?

Unitard. The last retard on earth.

Unitard. In the beginning there was only one. He was... the Unitard.

Ok. I'll stop.

I just consider myself incredibly fortunate to be pregnant at a time like this. Where's my credit card?!

Supposedly the owner of American Apparel weedles out the "beauties" of his company and he puts them in his awful sweatshop-free clothes and he makes them stand up against a white wall in his factory and goes to town with his camera. Aaaand I take it that there was only one pregnant laday amongst his employees. Her's a little too pregnant to be sportin' those duds. And what's up with the crisscross action around the neck? That never looks good on anyone.

My sister, who is a beanpole, looked really cute in this long sweater from AA, and so I went in there last winter to check it out. Holy F, that store is sooo not cute. They sell RIBBED, SHIMMERY, Leggins. Yes. Leggins.

Nee, I heart you.
