Gray Flannel Dwarf

A dream from this past weekend…

…one that has mundane, but nonetheless amusing social commentary written all over it.

In the dream, there was some news show on about yet another new blonde Russian tennis player who was an up-and-comer, a rising star on the tennis scene. They attempted to pronounce the name, one that was vaguely Russian sounding, but the fact was that they could’ve care less — this was the next new blonde Russian tennis star! Who cares about her name, eh?

But wait, there’s more.

It seems that, in this dream, as if she needed any more publicity, she was becoming ever more infamous because she played tournaments… topless.

Cut to video footage of this new star in action, on the court. In all her glory.

Cameraman zooms in on her right breast. In stamped text around the nipple are a few words that reveal the name of a manufacturer… manufacturer of implants, presumably. “Belmer Plastics, Ltd.”, or something similar.

That’s some sorta crazy next-gen sponsorship, hmm?

Needless to say, I woke up from that dream, nearly cracking up.
