flash protest with camp cow

No "bull markets" in Europe these days.

The bata de cola dress is a flamenco dress with a train. One ad for such a dress says “3 ruffles front, 8 ruffles back. Inner ruffles, 2 front, 5 back. Soft boning and full lining waist to end of the train”.

If it will give me some ‘tude, I’ll have one... the black and red one works best.

    1. You've done it again, Windsmoke... I groaned :)

  2. I guess that is the noun boning and not the boning Eddie McGuire does.

    1. At first I was concerned by the juxtaposition of the words 'soft' and 'boning', but I am impressed by the twist you have given the description of the dress.

      As for Eddie McGuire... I don't think I even want to think about what you are thinking, Andrew.

    1. It certainly has a personality all its own, Diane!

  4. I'd pass on the soft and create with the boning - in a pot with gravy, onions and carrots.

    1. MJWC I do wonder how he would perform in a bata de cola dress...
