Butt Naked With Glitter and a Beeper

While I appreciate the complaints over the new server uniforms at the casino [soon to be Caesar's], this quote gave me pause:
"The skirt is really, really short. The top is very low-cut. It looks more like a tennis skirt with slits in the front and back where you have to wear panties underneath. So, if you have to wear panties underneath you know it's too short."
Umm...if you have to wear panties, it's too short? Sooo, I suppose if the skirt is an acceptable length, it's bareback time?

I like the way you think, Casino Windsor employees!

I missed this when it originally ran, but back in March the NYTimes ran a profile of Al Jafee. You don't know his name, but if you're a boy, you probably know his work.

Jaffee is the man behind the MAD Magazine fold-in, the last page prank that poses a question you can only learn the answer to by folding the page in on itself. Jaffee, now 87, has drawn every fold-in since 1964, and while he uses a computer now for typographical concerns, he paints the rest by hand, and is as on the ball now as he ever was, maybe more so.

I know I'm not the only dude who left a stack of MADs in a drawer back at his Dad's garage with the back covers creased, so respect to the man who made me feel realize laughter was so much better when it felt illicit.

And now, terror!

In 1999 Nicholas White, a Business Week employee, decided to head downstairs for a smoke. He ended up trapped in the elevator for 41 hours. The New Yorker gives you a time lapse video of his entire ordeal.

Finally, one I meant to use last week, since it brought Lady Trail such happiness, but here it is now: the incredible Erykah Badu, letting all the young ladies know how to make it in the music business.

I skimmed the Casino Windsor article, and later in the piece it mentions that the toga uniform comes WITH matching panties (ie: it's clear to the designers of the outfit that someone might get a peek). The writer of the article kinda failed to bring that through, but I thought you should know. You know, so you can stop having nightmares about those nights you ate at the Casino Buffet.
