Have a Nice Day.

Personally I'm more concerned that her hair has clearly never seen a tube of VO5 Hot Oil Treatment, while completely flummoxed that she left the house without first donning some Spanx. She should probably give that belt to Captain Camouflage, as it's more suited to his current apparel.

Once again, please allow me to reference a film I hold near to my heart...and quote on a daily basis:

Truvy: Well, I haven't left the house without lycra on these thighs since I was 14!
Clairee: You were brought up right.

One can learn a lot from Steel Magnolias. It is full of sage, sound, and solid advice. As is my recommendation for the proper usage of VO5 and nude-colored Spanx.

Thus ends my public service announcement for the day.

*For all those who've asked...no, I did not take this picture!

Waaah ... that is hysterical! Ok, so last year we were at California Adventure. Think "Grizzly River Run" ... a water ride. I've got the little one in the stroller waiting for the rest of my family to get off the ride when a totally drenched gal goes walking past. White pants. No underwear. Obvious beyond belief ... from the front! No kidding. It was not pretty. But dang she turned a lot of heads! LOL

Um. Classy...

Julie said...

that is so funny, did you take that?

Sparkette said...

That is hilarious! OMGoodness I would about die laughing if I saw that in person! LOL!

CaraBee said...

That is hysterical! I am sure she was thinking, yellow unders + yellow dress = win. She was WRONG.

Jaci said...

Ha! That same movie line runs through my head when I try to go to church without nude pantyhose. I just can't do it, no matter what Tim Gund says about the awfulness of nude hose. These legs? They need more than lotion, honey. :)

brainella said...

That just made my morning. Ha!

Amy said...

I've seen this photo around. I can't imagine how this woman must feel if she saw it circulating.

I love Steel Magnolias!

Caroline said...

I have actually seen people with this sort of issue before. Its the epitome of trashiness in my humble opinion. And yes, get girlfriend some spanx.

Heather said...

Um, I read both Monday and Wednesday's posts at the same time, then commented on Monday's.

Oops.

Bekah said...

tell me you actually took that picture.. cuz that's amazing


also.. you said VO5 Hot Oil Treatment which is amazing....

Kelly said...

awesome. i saw dolly parton on the "old people morning show" also known as cbs sunday morning. she related an anecdote about how once she was caught in the pigpen suckling alongside the little piglets. i thought it was adorable, if a little disturbing, just cause you know, the wallowing in pigsh*t. anyway, carry on.

sassy stephanie said...

Oh my. That's now sumpin you see everyday.

Shannon said...

If only this poor woman read your PSA before she left the house.

Of course.. if that had happened... well, I guess you really wouldn't have had a post then, would you?

Kori said...

WOW! That's all I got WOW.

Maybe those were the only pair of yellow panties she had.

a Tonggu Momma said...

Goodness... what can I say except "Looks like two pigs fightin' under a blanket."

jori-o said...

Give the gal a break. She made MY day! =)

Elena said...

Get out!!! DId you take that picture?? Oh my that is so funny. She probably thought since her panites were yellow, they'd go unnoticed. I went to a wedding once were the father of the bride walked her down the isle wearing his white tuxedo, but with his bright red tube sock stripes shining through the pant leg. I had the giggles so bad, I almost had to excuse myself.

TattooedMinivanMom said...

Did you really take that picture while standing in line at the store?

Heather said...

She's in Wal-Mart, no? I rest my case. At least she accomplished her mission...which was apparently to make people smile. And, oh, I'm smilin'. In fact, isn't she sporting the Wal-Mart logo? And wearing the appropriate color? And look at her husband wearing his camo like a normal shirt. This. is. all. so. brilliant.

Brandy said...

Forget the Spanx! While those ARE important...the fact that she has a SMILEY FACE on her ASS just says it all doesn't it?!

Jen said...

Oh you are so right, words to live by and I for one so do live by them.

Denise said...

Note to self: Check butt in mirror before leaving the house.

ParentingPink said...

Oh, geez! Her butt makes mine look miniscule (ok, maybe not that tiny, but you get the point)! I actually feel bad for her, we all need to send her a pair of spanx and V05 for sure!

Mama Dawg said...

What lesson can you NOT learn from Steel Magnolias?

Seriously. It's like a southern How-To movie.

Karina said...

nice usage of the word 'flummoxed'. You are hilarious!

Nicole said...

Oh Lula I needed that laugh today!!!! That is histerical. I'm so gald you took that picture. I have been known to take "check out pictures" as well. You just cant help yourself!!!

Swirl Girl said...

I think the photographer got her best side for this one!

Yellow? Before Memorial Day? How gauche!

Mama Kat said...

I can't BELIEVE you didn't stop me and say hi!! I was having the darndest time finding rice milk for Kainoa (you know about his allergies)...I didn't even NOTICE you behind me.

Thanks again for letting me wear your yellow dress. I. Love. It.

Fritzie said...

Aaaand that is why I don't wear dresses .. just too darn much to think about.

That ba-donk wouldn't look bad in a pair of jeans .. but in that dress with that smiley face .. well, that lands her here, now doesn't it? =-)

Which maybe isn't such a bad thing, now that I think about it.

Em said...

Does no one else think it's totally adorable that a grown woman has smiley underpants?

I'd say with that bod, those undies and that dress, she must be a glass-half full kind of gal.

The Bayou Belles and Their Beau said...

Oh no she didn't. Gross. That's definitely a quote to live by.

Live.Love.Eat said...

Wow is right. And like everyone else, I am wondering if you took that picture?? Have a nice day. I mean, a good evening!!!!!

Trish said...

Hey, you know that I love you, RIGHT?

So, if you are EVER, EVER standing behind me in line at Walmart again, you had better put your camera away, quit laughing and just introduce yourself.

Or I will cease to love.

Until then have a HAPPY DAY!

Ashley said...

I can't believe you caught me on camera like this!! You didn't even say hi!

Hehe!

Everything worth learning is taught in Steel Magnolias - I'm sure of it.

themoonisdown said...

YOU WERE BROUGHT UP RIIIGHT! you beat me to it.

this seriously, might possible be THE BEST PICTURE EVERRRR!

so wrong, so right.

ps im going out to buy some V05 hot oil right now

John Deere Mom said...

Spanx could have done a lot for this poor, poor woman. Or neutral panties. Or a black dress...she had a lot of options. It's a pity she went with Option Smile.

Marrdy said...

Love Steel Magnolias!! My aunt sent me this picture. Too funny.

Angie's Spot said...

I have no words. And I purchased my first Spanx a couple of weeks ago and am never looking back. Best thing EVER invented.

Lauren said...

Oh, my word, that is HILARIOUS!

I found your blog through Laura Horton's...

Seriously, that poor woman.
