I have the coolest friends, I really do. Monica gifted me with a pad of the Fashion Citations pictured above (click for a larger version).
Many laughs have ensued, but no citation has been issued. Much as I like to comment on fashion, I still don't fancy myself as the actual Fashion Police. Well, not yet anyway (but stay tuned).
While sharing the pad with friends and having lots of yuks over the various offenses, I have been alarmed by several people who've actually asked the question, What IS camel toe? (Offense #3).
And, people, this worries me. A girl who doesn't know what a camel toe is could be in grave danger of developing one of her own.
Ya'll? Friends don't let friends have camel toe.
So, from the blogger who brought you the front butt (tm), I hereby present Camel Toe 101 for what I hope is the no more than the 10% of you who are actually in the dark about what it might be.

The worst case of camel toe in recorded history:
Need I say more?
Don't let this happen to you or those you love. Always check for camel toe in the dressing room when trying on new trousers. As a precaution, I recommend a CT scan in your full length mirror every morning after you're fully dressed and before you face the world. Vigilance is absolutely key in the war on camel toe. Together, we can beat this thing.
