Last November I wrote this entry on how Abercrombie & Fitch was pimping out live male models to stand in front of their stores and, using abs and pecs like the seductive voices of Sirens, lure gay men’s wallets to their deaths on the racks.
If you’ll read the comments to that post, you’ll notice since then that I’ve been inundated with requests (for some unknown reason) from men and women who want information on how they can become Abercrombie models. In any case, I suppose it’s my obligation to answer a few of the comments.
“I love Abercombie and I think modeling for you would be such a great experience and I have what it takes to be a great Abercrombie model!”

Dear Katie, your enthusiasm is infectious! With an attitude like that I don’t think you need my help, but what I would suggest is maybe standing in front of the mirror every night and repeating to yourself, “I’m beautiful, I’m beautiful, I’m beautiful…
“Hello, I think that i have what it takes to become an Abercrombie model. Please send me anything that would help me become one.”

Dear Foy, there’s a first time for everything…
To the rest of you, all I can say is, honey, if I knew the key to becoming an Abercrombie model, I’d be using that information for more practical purposes. Cut to: Jeremy Black in shower, washing Andy’s back.
