Some Like It Scot


(Yes, I know Marilyn did the grate scene in The Seven-Year Itch, but it sucked as a punny title.)

If you're going to invade another country, this is the way to do it: Wear skirts, sing silly songs day and night at the top of your lungs, and drink all their beer. And, at the end of the day, leave the streets of Paris awash with the stuff (no, that isn't water).


And, finally, do your best Marilyn Monroe for the seemingly harmless American girl with the camera.

There was actually a guy who did a near-perfect Marilyn imitation, but we were too far away to catch it at night, without light, or so Gregg said. Never mind "too far"...I bolted across about four lanes of traffic on the rue de Rivoli to ask these guys if I could take a picture of them.


Poor lads were terribly shy and retiring.

Have there been any wardrobe malfunctions? Please add these to the photo collection.

I tried, but the one where it really flew up was too far away to catch at the time. I want one of their little hip purses with the feathers and fur.

I always thought of those purses as an external representation of what lies beneath.

Hmmm...feathers give me pause in that case.

How do these laddies compare to the lassies in your earlier thread? The ones holding the pints. Eh?

By the by, did they, the wee missees, have what it takes to wear not-a-thing under their wee kilts?


P.S. The question becomes, where would the passer-by tie the blue ribbon?
