Kate and Andy used to have children, until the little darlings impaled themselves on the dinosaur sculptures on the coffee table..

Raina, why are you asking me to compete with the big boys? There aren't enough mind-altering drugs in the universe to help me come up with a better caption than you could craft in your sleep.

But I'll think on it, because I'm a good sport and I like you lots.

David said...

"Alright, on three: One, *click*.

Jamie said...

Reminds me of the "unhappy hipsters" website that is everywhere in the blogosphere right now. This photo makes me feel that all is not well in the Spade house - I think a body language expert would have something to say about his hands behind his back and her actually leaning away from him.

erin@designcrisis said...

Kate looked high and low for the perfect breed before she found the Andy -- docile, subservient, obsequious.

Yes, he was the one.

abchao said...

Kate had warned Andy that if he kept wearing his father's old pants their sex life would take a hit, but he was just too attached to them.

Marija said...

Quick, there's no time to pull ourselves or this place together - we'll just throw on jackets!

Keri Batchelder Hoffman said...

Not one step closer you douche bag or I'll smash you with your stupid ugly dinosaurs!

Risley said...

is this ok? I dont have to touch him, right?

Robin said...

Kate: My left arm is permanently in this position from carrying around KATE SPADE purses full of all the cash I got from selling overpriced KATE SPADE purses.

Andy: Kate, could you spare me a couple bucks, I really need a haircut.

KittyKate said...

Kate: Can I pull off the J Crew pose?
Andy: Can you pull my finger?

nkp said...

I got nuthin' for ya, can't do better then Erin and abchao. But man, don't you just feel the love between these two? The air is so thick with it you could cut it with a knife. A butter knife.

Your turn. Please. Pretty please.

Kate said...

Money, quite obviously, doesn't buy everything.

David said...

Well done Erin!

Karena said...

Too funny I haven't come up with a better caption yet than posted!!

THE BRICK HOUSE said...

As a punctuation to the long despairing silence she let out a small but aromatic fart.

Ciska said...

She doesn't look comfortable, I can't believe they didn't have any other pictures to choose from.

Shelley Trbuhovich said...

Kate - said through teeth; If you insist on dressing like 'harry highpants', the least you could do is iron your damn shirt.

Debi said...

Just one word: "AWKWARD"!

homeshoppingspy said...

Andy: Hello, awfully nice to meet you, I'm Andy.
Kate: Who? Oh, yes, I remember. I've been so busy hanging pictures on the walls for the past decade I forgot all about you. Do me a favour - get a hair cut then b*gger off back to your cell. Or I'll put your bones on display with the ones from my last husband.
Andy: Right o dearest. You know best.

helen said...

Kate had cleverly fashioned herself a husband from offcuts from her handbags but had left herself a little short for her new prosthetic arm

collyn said...

Desperate to save the marriage, he had pulled her aside. Giddy at the prospect of a threesome with the photographer, he encouraged her to reconsider,but when they returned to the room, she looked more closely and whined "I can't do facial hair...."

Ms. Bright said...

Bravo Erin and Risley. Couldn't have said it better myself! Please Raina...let's hear it!

sherri said...

abchao's comment made me spittake my coffee. here's mine:

Andy I told you not to put my jacket in the dryer. Oh, and by the way, wtf is hanging around my neck?

Raina Cox said...

KittyKate, Homeshoppingspy, and Helen - Hello and welcome to this deliciousness!

My contribution:

For Kate, years of secretly desiring her brother-in-law manifested itself in the feverish collecting of WASP ephemera. Just the thought of David made her entire body contort in pleasure.

nkp said...

Bravo Raina! Could those Spade brothers be any different! Clearly, the humour was lost on Andy. But wait, there are those pants. Perhaps that's it. Standing next to his wife, fashion maven that she is, for a photo op in those pants. Quite subversive and daring, Andy. Quiet he may be, but dangerous nonetheless. And it's just killing her that he rolled out of bed in that get up, can't you just hear those teeth grinding! :0)

Everything in this apartment was paid for by my handbag, including you, darling and if you get one step closer to me, my thumb will take your eyes out.

susieq said...

I love Robin's! Kate is obviously suffering a shoulder injury from one of her outsized bags.

Elisa @ whatthevita said...

They had saved up enough for Kate's shoulder operation, but after a long and serious discussion, they decided that the money would be better spent on the decor. "It was the best decision I've ever made," said Kate.

Seriously, though, is that arm even real?

drollgirl said...

frigid and schlub pose amongst a very cluttered space, while trying to disguise the fact that frigid has no thumbs, and schlub has no arms.

Alexis said...

"We need to look as if we've not spent tens of thousands of dollars on PR over the years to get us into NY Magazine so lets just throw on some mismatched, rumples clothes and see if we can pass for 'the little people'."

Raina Cox said...

Alexis - Hello and welcome to this deliciousness!

hmstrjam said...

"show me your style passport and you can read my many books and view my randomly collected miserable self-revealing art.."

amy @ switz~art said...

Kate: "Shit, Andy, can you fix my bra?"

Alicia B. Designs said...

To the photographer: Is this a smile? I feel like I'm smiling but theres so much botox in my face I'm not sure. Is this it?

Jill said...

Body language is very telling

brismod said...

As passionless as the decor they worship, there they stood attempting something akin to smouldering.

carak said...

HILARIOUS. and awesome. just found this blog and love it!!

Raina Cox said...

Carak - Hello to you and welcome to this deliciousness!

Mark Lewis said...

Ms. Brosnahan was always well known in Kansas City society circles as "warm." I'm sure the photographer just failed to capture it. Actually - probably nothing left to capture.

Raina Cox said...

Mark Lewis - Hello to you and welcome to this deliciousness!

Acanthus and Acorn said...

That was the worst sex I've ever had so don't stand next to me cause I still feel sick.

Sorry, couldn't resist! I don't think I have ever seen 2 people who know eachother look more uncomfortable!
