Default OT: My waif-like pals

I was checking out Wal-Mart's clearance section online a while ago and saw something which made me laugh aloud. Since the web's so ephemeral, I did a screen print and blogged about it. Here's the screen print.

Yes, I'm sure all my waif-like pals are clamoring to wear a size 22/24! If I wore a size 4, I know I would be jealous!

I clicked on the link but I can't make out what it says. What's it about?

Oh, shoot, I tried to make the screen print large enough so it could be read. :P I posted another shot at it - see if this one works better for you.

Wal-Mart's link is here, but who knows how long the URL will be good.

Their ad copy is what made me laugh...

"Pucker up! This high-fashion blouse has a flattering fit you won't believe. Its puckered, stylishly striped, stretchy cotton is cut in a feminine shape. And the whole shebang is accented with sleek hardware closure down the front. Your waif-like pals will wish they had oneóbut it doesn't come in their size."

I thought y'all would appreciate that. Howie laughed when he read it and said I needed to post it here. Thanks for the compliment. I've always liked putting together visual aides for presentations and love using screen prints. I try to put funny web things on my site since I know I enjoy seeing them at other peoples' sites.

Oh good lord Now who in their right mind would think that would be an okay thing to write in a product description? My Marketing education/experience would have made a big flashing red light go off in my head long before that made it to print
