I’d look cute in that.

Part of the greatness, is that it is a built in conversation starter.

I still hear your posts in Groucho’s voice. Some days it just means everything.

I actually have that same print hanging on my office wall. I bought it at the SF Comic Con a couple years ago.

This joke doesn’t work in English:
Do you think they are drinking Long Drink?

Needs appropriate glasses.

That sounds delicious! Gin is my favorite alcohol, and grapefruit is my favorite soda. And they have it on draught everywhere? I want to go there!

It’s too bad the next sentence doesn’t show up in the one-box here:

…which prompted producers to use the word as part of their marketing. The Finnish word “lonkero” literally means “tentacle” but the apparent double meaning is purely coincidental.

Perfect joke for this topic, thanks for posting it :smiley:

Like the dresses but they’re too short for my personal taste. I prefer a “midi” length.

If only I could get my wife to wear this. Or the frog suit.

Thanks for the post! I’ve got a “skater dress” version and there are leggings available too.

Anyway, I do love the boings. Thanks again.

I was thinking the same thing. I’d wear that as a skirt in a heart beat. But I think the dress would be cramped. :sob:

They have yoga pants.

Same here. I also see no hint of pockets. :face_with_monocle:

@Joshua_Ellingson: Does it have pockets? That cut should always have pockets.

Also, “Men’s” yoga leggings, in case you didn’t see:

Also available in the Drinking Tentacles print: a one-piece swimsuit, Plus-size women’s leggings, and another style of women’s leggings.

Unfortunately, pockets were not an option. I’ll keep that in mind for the future. Thanks.

I missed the men’s version. Thank you.

Bummer. If you get ambitious, fit-and-flair is one of the easiest cuts to add pockets to.
