Overheard in Retail #582

There are these mannequins where I work. Only, unlike the one pictured above, these don't have heads or whole legs. They're short, stubby, decapitated dudes with the bodies of Greek gods. Hey, they gotta have something going for them.

Today, a brother and sister pair, no more than 8 years old, stood staring at one of the headless, mostly-limbless dudes. The brother turned to his big sis and, totally serious, asked, "When you grow up, are you going to marry a guy who looks like this?"

To which she nodded. "I'll try."

Amen, sister. All little girls aspire to find a nice headless, legless, crazy-ripped man to marry. That way he can't talk back and can't run away, and he still looks darn amazing.

Girl power, baby.

Oh, such gold!

You go, little sister!

At least she won't be disappointed by her high standard.

Smart girl!

hehe. And here I'm thinking about that poor boy, who probably now thinks that's what all girls want!

I hope he doesn't go take steroids and cut off his head.

That's priceless.
