High Fashion Haiku LIMERICK

I couldn't resist:

A chic lady tried clutching this clutch
But she found that the weight was too much
Now her back's out of whack
She switched to a small sack
But it's tough to look chic with a crutch.

I've never liked animal skin - real or fake. You can see the fear in the model's eyes as she tries to lift it!

- Hope finals went okay x

The clutch looks like it's about to attack her...

OMG!! This is hillarious. You are hillarious. I think I hurt myself laughing!

On that note, the humongous clutch is fugly.

Please make your haikus a regular feature. Very entertaining!

Her head is so tiny. So when I squint my eye, I can squish it in between my finagers... What is with that bag? She could almost fit a rifle in there!

That bag looks like a texas-sized makeup brush roll.

That's a clutch?! I could fit my laptop in there! Reminds me of the limericks I used to have to write in creative writing, very funny.

There once was a Kludge from Nantucket.
It's so big that you better just chuck it.
Even though its a Croc,
Its too pricey for Schlock.
I can trade it for a really nice Bucket

i love limericks, but am too tired to construct a response-limerick.

The size of the clutch is only to be matched by the stupidity of the purchaser - this MUST be some designers idea of a joke

Apple Diva said...

Too funny!! I love this clutch, if it were 10X smaller.

Teresa said...

Well a plus side to the 7,500 dollar price tag and the ton it must weigh is that it's good for bludgeoning potential muggers.

The whole point of a clutch is having a small bag to stuff your necessities in for a big night out! I don't consider it a clutch if you need two hands and/or a manservant to carry it.
