A serious drunk walked into
a bar and, after staring for some time at the only woman seated at the
bar, walked over to her and kissed her. She jumped up and slapped him
silly. He immediately apologized and explained, "I'm sorry. I
thought you were my wife. You look exactly like her."
"Why you worthless, insufferable, wretched, no good drunk!"
"Funny," he muttered, "you even sound exactly like
Elizabeth Hubbard's swimwear line seems more suited for taking a splash
than a swim, given the intricacies of each piece -- and the designer makes
no apologies for her decadent designs. After all, the 26-year-old former
head designer at Jill Stuart, designed the line out of a love of
traveling to sandy destinations and an appreciation for the lavish life.
At her launch party at deCollage this week, Susan said, "I wanted
the detailing and the attention that is put into a clothing line to be
used in the collection. Of course I don't want them to be sleazy and
picked up by strippers -- but they are adventurous." She said the
bikinis and one-pieces are all very different, yet with one thing in
common -- opulence. Some have ribbon fastening, gold and silver
hardware, ostrich feathers, strapping, embroidery and lace.
The line is obviously inspired by luxe lingerie; it has the same rich
and indulgent look of a La Perla or Frost French set, and demands an
equally lithe physique to pull it off to perfection. The Susan Elizabeth
line appears to be perfectly at home at New York's deCollage, where it
will be available in early January.
At $240-$550 a pop, a Susan Elizabeth might be something to be kept out
of chlorine filled pools and salty seas -- but you'll be the hottest
thing on the sidelines.
Susan Elizabeth is available at deCollage, 23 Eighth Avenue, NYC.

Jan.19-21 Orlando Lingerie Show
causes stir at Stark County recorder's office
Canton, Ohio- There's a stripper loose in the Stark County recorder's office. But no one has seen the show, just the leftovers.
In the last several weeks, lacy women's underwear have been found in the otherwise pedestrian office.
``If it's a joke, I can take a joke,'' said Recorder Rick Campbell. ``But it has been escalating.''
Campbell reported the incidents to the Stark Sheriff's Department. One of the items, according to police reports, was a $35 black silk teddy that was found Oct. 30 between the public computer station and the window of the Central Plaza South office.
In addition, Campbell said underwear have been discovered in restrooms of the Stark County Office Building.
He claimed in the reports that people in the title examiner's office may have been playing jokes because of changes he was making in the office. Thursday, he said as far as he knows, no one from the inside is planting their skivvies in public view.
1st Adult Industry Business to Business Auction Site is launched
Providence RI- The world’s premier adult business to business auction website, has just been launched to coincide with the 2003 AVN show in Las Vegas. This is a business to business site for buyers and sellers of adult product.
Adult Industry Auctions (AIAuctions.com ) was launched by Jeff Gellman, President of Miko Exoticwear in December of 2002. "I originally put auctions up on our wholesale website at MikoExoticwear.com to get rid of excess inventory", says Gellman, "and within the first day I sold off all of our excess inventory". Realizing that adult stores were willing to purchase product in an auction format, he presented the plan to Tony Veltri, the companies in house webmaster, and AIAuctions was born.
AIAuctions.com is geared towards manufactures, wholesalers and distributors of adult product ranging from DVD & Video’s to lingerie, shoes & boots, erotic books, sex toys and even store fixtures. A community page consists of helpful sales and management tools, Adult Industry news and links as well as a job posting and business for sale section. There is even a request section for store owners to put up requests to buy product that they are looking for
"The initial response has been wonderful, it is up to the sellers to take the 3-5 minutes to post an auction and the buyers will buy, the format is so simple, I am able to post my own auctions and I do not think I am that computer savvy" says
Female hormones in beer
Yesterday, scientists in the United States revealed that beer contains small traces of female hormones.
To prove their theory, they fed one hundred men twelve pints of beer and observed that 100% of them started talking nonsense and couldn't drive.

Hi Andy, I just found your website and I think it's fabulous! I wanted to ask you how do I go about finding sales reps for my business? I'm looking for reps for lingerie/adult stores? Any suggestions? I appreciate your time. Thank you, Leslie Wasserman,
Dear Leslie: advertise on
McPetesez newsletter. Most reps don't like to carry a "one
product" line. It would be good if you had some other items
to add to your line. You also might want to try other industries
that could use your custom made wipes such as The Premium Incentive
Show, held yearly in May in the
Jacob Javits Convention Center in
New York City. Good Luck, Andy
