With nominations for the 2015 Oscars announced today, I wanted to write about an exhibit at the MFA Boston that opened this past fall and may be of interest to those of you attracted to Hollywood glamour.
The MFA exhibit “Hollywood Glamour: Fashion and Jewelry from the Silver Screen” presents designer gowns and exquisite jewelry from the 1930s and ‘40s. The exhibition focuses on the iconic style of Hollywood starlets from that period, including Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich and Joan Crawford to name a few. Enjoy a glimpse of Hollywood in the Golden Age of glamour. The MFA exhibit closes Sunday, March 8, 2015.
I absolutely love this. The marketing is hilarious. My favorite part is the fact that the underwear fits packages of all sizes. It makes me wonder if Norwegian men have exceptionally large testicles where this might be an issue.
Norwegian men are encouraged to contact me directly with any physical evidence they would like to share. I don’t speak Norwegian (I think that is what the language is called) but here is the website.
Tomorrow is New Year’s Eve day… Choose what you wear wisely and have a wonderful evening. I might try to hedge my bets and buy some rainbow colored underwear before the day is done.
The contest to win a free Garçon Model jockstrap is heating up on Twitter. @LargeTony was the first to Tweet a photo wearing a jockstrap and mentioning @GarconModel & @BosGuy. Props to him for giving his Tweet a holiday theme and injecting his own sense of innuendo and humor.
How the contest works:Every time you Tweet you enter yourself in the running to nab a free Garçon Model jockstrap of your choosing. People who Tweet a photo of them wearing a jockstrap and give both @GarconModel and @BosGuy a shout out are entered twice.
@LargeTony’s tweet above is a great example on how to do this, but here is another sample tweet: Hey @BosGuy I really want to win that #free @garconmodel #jockstrap so I can give it to my boyfriend for Christmas.
All Tweets must have Garcon Model and my Twitter handle to qualify. The contest concludes at 12PM ET on Saturday, December 20th. A winner will be announced shortly after I connect with them so please be sure you follow me on Twitter so I can DM you.
Garçon Model jockstraps retail for $26 and would make for an excellent gift.
Tweet to win a Garçon Model jockstrap: Every time you mention @BosGuy and @garconmodel together in a Tweet I will enter you to win a Garçon Model jockstrap of your choosing. If you include a photo of you wearing your favorite jockstrap when you Tweet I will count that as TWO Tweets – thereby doubling your odds of winning.
The more often you Tweet the more likely you are to win a Garçon Model jockstrap of your choosing. I will tally all the Tweets between today and Saturday, December 20th at 12PM ET and announce the winner later that day. Please be sure you are following @BosGuy on Twitter so I can DM you if you win.
Sample Tweet: Hey @BosGuy I really want to win that #free @garconmodel #jockstrap so I can give it to my boyfriend for Christmas.
Get creative and Tweet @garconmodel and @BosGuy. Tell us why you want a free Garcon model jockstrap. Every Tweet will enter you to win a jockstrap.
Looking to insert some innuendo or humor to your holiday gift giving? I’d like to ask you to check out my friend’s online t-shirt store, shirtsngrins.com.
This is Large Tony’s online shop and he is currently offering 15% off purchases if you use the code: HDAY2014, but Tony is offering BosGuy readers 20% off if you purchase two or more shirts if you use the code: BOSGUY. Either way it is a great deal.
Order early if you want to make sure to get them in time for Christmas – although the holiday code Tony has set up is good through Sunday, January 4, 2015.
