Striking Models

models on strike

It is Izzy’s sad duty to inform you that models in Milan just went on strike over the awful working conditions in the fashion capital. Their complaints include: 1) the widespread use of non-hypo-allergenic baby oil, 2) being forced for hours on end to look like they just smelled something bad, 3) warm Campari. They are also demanding that the health authorities investigate and put an end to the industry’s analogue to black lung disease: white nostril syndrome.

Fear not, however. The strike lasted a mere three hours (really), so cancel your plane tickets, you beautiful scabs.


  1. Well, actually the story was about the lack of licensing in Italy. Although I wonder why there needs to be a law requiring an agency to put money in escrow to make sure people get paid.

  2. Hey — there is nothing worse than the warm Campari. Except the warm champagne.
