WFME gets a lot of questions a lot of the time.
That’s why, effective immediately, I’m crafting the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) for the site. Today, I’ve decided to post some of the questions I’ve received and start by answering them after the break. Just click on in there and you’ll get a chance to learn the answers to some of WFME’s most asked questions.
Remember, if you don’t like the answers or you’re unhappy I’ve printed your questions, your only options are to ignore me completely or file a FAQ-attack through the appropriate factions (www.faqattack.com). Otherwise, just sit back and learn the answers to potentially some of the questions you’ve had but were afraid to ask about.
It’s not often that I quote WFME readers’ comments.
But over the past nine months after posting this piece in which I detail how I would live my life if I were an Abercrombie & Fitch model, I have realized that a satirical piece about the model-like A&F style and staff who work in the shopping mall-esque stores has hit a chord, across the board.
I would like to address some of those comments here today.
Above all, as I sifted through the comments on this particular post it became clear to me that beyond Iraq and Iran, that beyond the battle against terrorism, there is a class struggle going on between those who work at A&F stores and those who don’t. There’s a deep-rooted anger in the American psyche regarding this very issue. For example, see what Lance has to say, who is just plain fed-up with being considered so pretty:
If I was an Abercrombie & Fitch model, I would pose a lot.
Most often, I’d stop whatever I was doing when people would walk nearby my rock-hard body and I would lean on something. Usually so that I looked like I was reclining in some kind of way, that made me look like I was relaxing in typical A&F fashion.
I would, of course, never say hello to you — I would do my trademark “upwards head nod” which is a simple nod upwards. No up and down motion. No side to side motion. Just from whichever position my head was currently in when we locked eyes, I would do the quick upwards nod. That means, “Hey, whaddup?” in A&F body language.
