You Have a Little Something on Your Face...

You may want to shield your eyes from this picture. It is quite possibly the most disturbing thing I've run across in a while.

Second chance not to look...

Okay, you kept going, but I warned you...


What is this, you ask? Why, it is the picture on the front of a pouch containing a face mask - you know, like girls put on their faces during slumber parties? However, to me it looks like this girl has massive amounts of radiation exposure. I can't even bring up the berries and leaves on her eyes. They are just too disturbing.

I would not buy this product. Ever. In fact, I may stop shopping at Walgreens altogether, because that is where I saw this. This would, of course, cause a massive loss of revenue for the store and they would have to shut down, because I do provide approximately 48% of their profits. This would cause layoffs and ruin employee's lives, but it would be worth it if I didn't have to see this anymore.

Well you could always buy it and use it for a halloween costume and go as the Incredible Melting Anonymous Midwest Girl!

It's very Dali-esque. I kind of like it. Mmmmmm face mud with berries...

My question is, if she has all that crazy facial stuff on, why lipstick?

It looks like something you'd find in a third grade pottery class. I think my son made me a clay "figurine" that looks a bit like this picture. Hmmmm, and it actually lives???

The creature that lurks in my nightmares...never thought it was a born at Walgreens.

Oh AMG, you know you will never stop shopping at Walgreens.
And it's not because of ruining any employees life.
It's not because you worry about Walgreen's bottom line.
It's because Walgreens is RIGHT NEXT to where you work.
You could never give that up.
Atomic slumber party kits or no.

P.S.
No posts from South by SouthWest?
Tease me with two posts and then jet off and leave me cold turkey all over again?
You evil, evil anonymous girl. Why would you do this to me, why for the love of all that is holy?
Hitting "next blog" just doesn't give me that AMG feeling...

but yeah, its a really bad, pathetic cover. the model for that product must be on medication that's why she agreed on modelling her face for that product.

That image has been burned into my brain. Thanks.

Robert said...

Holy Shit! It's Roy Mahlberg!

In the words of Stan Marsh:

"That's some fucked-up shit right there."

Anonymous said...

Okay, plumbing new depths of outrageousness with this crazy lack of posting.

AMG, where are you? Where are you?

Deserted in our most desperate hour....
Or at least in recent hours.
And I have to say I'm feeling kind of desperate.

(Sobs quietly into desk.)

Oh AMG oh AMG, why did you choose to leave me?

Oh AMG oh AMG, why did you choose to leave me?

Your posts have stopped
My thrill is gone
Now all I've got
Is this dumb song

Oh AMG oh AMG, why did you choose to leave me?

Whitney said...

Dammit, Robbie J. You always get to say "Holy shit! It's Roy Mahlberg!" first. I can never beat you to it.

Robert said...

What can I say, I'm quick!

Okay,
I am officilally past depression, through denial and before I get to anything like acceptance I am most certainly in anger.

(Clenching fists and staring at screen) AMG MUST PAY!!!

Cross refernce the location of all Walgreens with fortune 500 companies in the Omaha area...

Ahhh!
So AMG works at-

Right, now check for recently promoted employees and check against any who have also recently purchased a car...

So (Stroking white cat and staring at map pinned on wall) AMG is not so A any more.
Mwah ha ha ha.

Desert me, will you?
I'm coming AMG, I'm coming...

OK, Anon. that's just a little bit too freaky.

Robert said...

I don't want to look at mudface any more. AMG?!?!?!?!?

You've gotten your executive job and now you've abandoned us? We've been a means to an end all this time? I feel so used.

Anonymous said...

You're right eh The Boutros,
that was a bit freaky but I am desperate.
I've come to rely on AMG.
Sigh.
Now she is gone.
It's all gone.

Must resist maniacal tendencies.
Must find healthy outlet.

Anyone for kick-boxing?

Walking Wounded said...

Kick Boxing is very rewarding, not that tae bo stuff but real kick boxing. AMG, you are starting to scare me a bit. Not only have you been corporatized but you are now looking to buff up. Damn woman!?! Gonna make the interns sweat fo sheezie, breezie!

Peace.
