The C.O. Guide to Boudoir Photography

When done well, boudoir photography creates a special souvenir for a lady to share with her loved one, and cherish herself as she slowly withers and ages. Let’s look at examples of correct and incorrect posing techniques:

Correct: This pose is refined, demure, capturing the subject in a tender moment of relaxation. The coquettish expression conveys a hint of sly mischief: How dare you linger in a lady’s private chambers? it seems to say.

Incorrect: Overly revealing poses are to be avoided, as they may result in later embarrassment to the subject, angry unannounced visits from husbands and boyfriends, and in some jurisdictions, legal action requiring a hasty relocation to Europe.

Sender-inner Laurie D. says “Godiva the greyhound was feeling the winter chill so she got a coat which she thought was very weird at first, and then she LOVED it! Snuggly coats for the win!”

Seven-Ten Splat

Welcome back, sports fans, to Bowling for Flies! It’s down to our finalists, Louie “Thundertongue” Muscatola versus Manny “Bug” Zappa!

“I wish I could bowl this well,” laments sender-inner Megan, who apparently never tried just flinging herself down the alley with her tongue out, which turns out to work remarkably well until the management asked me to leave. (PS: Thanks, Brinke!)

I Didn’t Do It

Whatever it was, I didn’t do it. Or that other thing, either. Those bite marks on your sneakers? Those were, um, raccoons. The trash all over the lawn? Aliens. Big green ones. That mysterious activity in your charge account? I’m gonna go with North Korea. Or maybe Anonymous — man, those guys are good.

You’re Too Cute to Be Real!

Are you freaking kidding me?! It’s like you escaped from a cartoon or something! I… I can’t even write a caption for you, that’s how impossibly cute you are! The beady eyes! The poofy cheeks! That wry little smile! I can’t take it! Just please, whatever you do, don’t say anything, because it’ll probably be so ultracute that I flip out completely!

Restaurant Fads of the 1970’s

No high-rise hotel of the 70’s was complete without a revolving restaurant perched on the top floor. This trend reached its zenith with the opening of the ultra-exclusive Café Vertige, which seated one only.

Know Your Obscure Horse Breeds!

Horse aficionados are familiar with the Shetland Pony, affectionately nicknamed the “Sheltie.” Less well-known, however, is the “Shelter” pony, which instinctively stands over smaller animals in snow and rain.

“That’s what friends are for,” says Redditor CityCaption.

“Fetch the Stick” is for Wimps

Us bigger dogs like to play “Fetch the Sticks.” Throw me a handful and I’m a happy dog. Heck, I’ll even fetch the whole tree, if someone would throw one.

“This is what an addiction to fetch looks like,” notes Redditor Theodora Rex.

And Now, a Dashing Individual Sporting Not Even Slightly Ridiculous Headwear

I know it’s tempting. I get it, I really do. You see the hat, and if you’re of shall we say a certain age, a melody will pop up from some forgotten corner of your mind, and you may feel that it would brighten my day if you were to share it with me. A perfectly reasonable, seemingly innocent impulse.

All I’m saying is, the last person to serenade me with “The Mickey Mouse Club March” only got as far as “emm, eye, cee.” Word to the wise.

“My dog’s ears are prone to frostbite,” explains Redditor DetectionK9, “so he needs to wear a snood outside.” Meanwhile, we just like saying the word “snood.”

Snood. Snood.

Snooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood.
