    And how intriguing that both models are also wearing spiders!

  2. tbone Says:

    “I do.
    What a hat!
    I like it!
    I like
    that party hat!”

  3. deja pseu Says:

    It’s his dragon hat to celebrate the Lunar New Year!

  4. beth Says:

    No, I do not like your hat.

  5. TulipGirl Says:

    Oh, Go Dog Go was my favorite book when I was a preschooler.

  6. amy in hiding Says:

    that’s a really complicated origami of construction paper!

  7. Phyllis Says:

    Manolo – you are a genius.

  8. BJ van Damme Says:

    Manolo – you are a super fantastic genius.

  9. jenny Says:

    I have that book memorized. That and “Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You?” And not by choice.

  10. katerina Says:

    has anyone noticed how strikingly THIN the man-model is? goodness gracious.

  11. Martha Says:

    Dog hat: superfantastic.

    Man hat: NOT.

    Manolo: forever supersuperfantastic.

    Now you’ve got me thinking: is not all of fashion just one big version of “The Sneeches with Stars on Their Bellies?”

  12. Darla Says:

    Don’t forget the superfantastic doggie helmet?

  13. Darla Says:

    The superfantastic link did not work!! Try

    The Diva Leigh does not think the construction paper hats are going to catch on. One damp day is going to cause the whole “thing” is going to collapse about the wearer’s head. She hopes the model filed the appropriate police reports – both for the crime of being severely beaten about the face and for the unspeakable fashion crimes!

  15. Diva Leigh Says:

    Let’s try again – I know the grammer and punctation police will pounce on me.

  16. Sandra Says:

    Don’t tell me, let me guess: this is for the Year of the Dog, right?

  17. The Scarlett Says:

    Manorexic man + salute to the pinata hat can only mean one thing. The funky little fashion troll has indulged in literature. I predict a collection based upon ‘One Fish, Two Fish’ coming soon!

  18. JayKay Says:

    I bet those two shiners that the model has are a direct result of wearing that hat out in public one too many times…
    Manolo, dear: this is one of my favorite posts! SO funny! Thanks!

  19. Carol Says:

    Go Manolo Go.

  20. Zarba Says:

    The Manolo is amazing. I was reading that very story to my kids just last night.

    I can only hope that my son will one day ask, “Daddy, what’s a funky little fashion troll?”

    The Zarba humbly bows to The Manolo’s superfantasticness.

  21. Esther Says:

    The hat should have been made of sandwiches, so after gliding down the runway, the manorexic model could then have lunch.

  22. CrankyBiscuit Says:

    Note to self: Never wear anything that is primarily held together with Elmer’s Glue.

    And good Lord, that man is gaunt! Being able to visually count all the bones in your torso is Not Sexy, be you man or woman.

  23. Karla Says:

    Your blog makes me laugh anyway, but his post had me in tears from laughing. What a dog party!

  24. Ryno Says:

    You all had it wrong… the black eyes are from when he was beaten up by the other models and forced to wear the hat.

    However, the parallel to PD Eastman is one of the most perfect things in the universe so far. I bet the models were wearing yellow Gox box sox.

  25. Joan Says:

    Manolo, thank you for bringing a much-needed spot of brightness to a rather dreary week!
