It is in this spirit that it seemed an opportune time to
Girl, you better werq! Fashion Week (originally posted September 11, 2009)
I cancelled my Vogue subscription a while ago, but they keep sending me magazines. I recently received the September issue, and while thinner than last year's, it's still not something you want to drop on anything wee or delicate. Let's take a look at the issue, and how it measures up to various things in my apartment ...
It's definitely smaller than a 14 oz. box of Cheerios. Also, it will not help you lower your cholesterol.
It takes 2 seasons of Supernatural on DVD to stack up to the September Vogue; however, Jensen Ackles may be prettier than Charlize Theron.
You need almost three copies of Frank Herbert's Dune series to equal one Vogue. You might think Vogue has the edge here, but I'll actually read the Dune books more than once.
Vogue is almost as large as the cast iron ebelskiever pan, and certainly as heavy. But if you pour batter onto Vogue and place it on a gas stove, all you will succeed in doing is burning the kitchen down.
Advantage: ebelskiever pan
Sorry Vogue. Better luck next year.
