Rule 5 Sunday: Hockey Girls

— compiled by Wombat-socho Well, contrary to everyone’s expectations, the Las Vegas Golden Knights are going to the Stanley Cup finals. Pretty amazing for an expansion team whose roster was filled with castoffs from the other NHL teams. Anyhow, diligent search of the Intertubes failed to turn up any scantily clad Golden Knights fans, so […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Camille Paglia Approved!

— compiled by Wombat-socho Some weeks, I have to really struggle to come up with an appropriate appetizer for Rule 5 Sunday. Other weeks, ideas just fall into my lap – and so it was this week. I was reading an interview with Camille Paglia in the Free Beacon, and inevitably, they asked her about […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Crash Test Girl

This week, Ninety Miles From Tyranny has […]

Good on her. More suitable […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Lieutenant Dish

— compiled by Wombat-socho Growing up as an Air force brat, I’ve always been fond of women in uniform, and Robert Altman’s M*A*S*H had plenty of those – Sally Kellerman as chief nurse “Hot Lips” Houlihan, Tamara Horrocks as Capt. “Knocko” McCarthy, but most of all, JoAnn Pflug as Lieutenant Maria “Dish” Schneider, who saves […]

Rule 5 Sunday: Nikki Nicole

— compiled by Wombat-socho One of the ways social media has changed things is that models no longer have to blow a lot of money on having photos taken for portfolios, which they then have to lug around to agencies. Now they can post the pics online, which means that not only can agents more […]
