This is why I like facebook. Here’s an interaction I had with my friend’s sister and mother. I’ve only slightly altered the names:
Status Update: Fashion Whore posted a link to a $2ooo Prada Hobo bag that she wants soooo bad.
Squirtpie: Is it made from real hobos?
Fashion Whore: Isn’t it beautiful? I had one like this but I lost it in Israel. Should I?
Squirtpie: You should definitely get it. Hobos are known for their soft skin.
Fashion Whore: A hobo is a homeless vagrant! Is the prada bag made of them?
Squirtpie: I certainly hope so.
Sensible Sister of Fashion Whore: lol… if so I will take one too!
Snarky Friend of Fashion Whore: Hopefully it won’t smell like hobos.
Squirtpie: They wash the hobos first. Before removing their skin.
Fashion Whore: Haha! Too funny!
Mother of Fashion Whore: Fashion Whore, you get Louis Vuitton’s for the same price. The never-full or the speedy aren’t much and there are others. Even Christian Dior has some new nice styles.
Fashion Whore: I love this bag! This bag is so mine!! I lost one in Israel and have been looking all over trying to replace it.
Fashion Whore: Already ordered. I have to wait 10 days! Longest 10 days ever
Mother Of Whore: Didn’t they have it at the Prada store in the city?
Squirtpie: It takes at least three days for hobo skin to be stretched and dyed.
Squirtpie: Prada only uses the freshest hobos.
Fashion Whore: No, mom, they didn’t have that particular bag.
Fashion Whore: haha, of course, Squirtpie.
Squirtpie: It’s because of the hobo shortage. They are not in season right now due to hibernation. The spring collection should be fabulous.
Fashion Whore: Yes, frozen hobos are not so soft.
