"Top models... are like fossil fuels..."

"... don't burn through the models... because pretty soon, before you know it, models are going to be, like, $150 a barrel..."

Fossil fuels and hormones don't mix except in men.

Going through all those models is a small price to pay to keep Tyra Banks on TV 24 hours a day.

But where can you buy a slightly used low mileage super model?

Maybe the BMW pre-owned show-room has a couple of used Heidi's?

Can I save up my carbon credits for Gisele Bundshen? (sp.)

Hey, Drill Sargeant!

Check out how Paulina Porizkdskova dresses down this platoon of model wannabes!

You've gotta give Beth and Val a ton of credit for getting through that with totally straight faces.

They're right that most of the contestants on Top Model were "cute in high school", though even that's pushing it. Not only are most the contestants not that attractive--the two commentators are far better looking--many are downright ugly. Most of these will never be working models let alone top models.

I suspect that's part of the popularity of the show; so many viewers can say "hey, I'm better looking than these idiots."

Hmm... maybe I should dig up my lawn.

I didn't know those barrels full of models would become so valuable someday.

I should look at it as less of a hobby and more of an investment.

One of them had to keep touching her nose to keep her face straight, though.

Fun little piece.

"ANTM: Paulina Porizkova Is Like A More Lucid Janice Dickinson"

"More Lucid Janice Dickinson"?... surely that's an oxymoronic statement, a reverse tautology, a non-possibility, like taking the "vanilla" out of "vanilla ice cream"...

Okay, fine, I was just annoyed that someone compared the elegant Porizkova with the shambling, garish train wreck that is Dickinson and wanted to rip...
