Freaky Fug Friday: Lindsay Lohan Edition


The return of Freaky Fug Friday! And who better to usher in a new season of contests and creativity than the erstwhile star of Freaky Friday herself, Ms Lindsay Lohan (whose get-up at the Scary Movie premiere is heading your way later today):

She wore this ON AN AIRPLANE. And by “this” I mean, “I don’t actually know WHAT this is.” Is it….boots over jeans and then spats over the boots….? Is that sentence even in English? I do not know what is happening here. Please send help.

THE TASK:  Help. Please explain what Lilo is actually wearing here. But do it in a haiku.

THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on MONDAY.

THE PRIZE:  This week, we’re giving away five (5!) copies of the new memoir Rapture Practice, by Aaron Hartzler. Per Amazon:Aaron Hartzler grew up in a home where he was taught that at any moment Jesus might come down in the twinkling of an eye, and scoop his whole family up to Heaven. As a kid, Aaron was thrilled by the idea that each day might be his last one on planet Earth…But as he turns sixteen, Aaron finds himself more and more attached to his life on Earth, and curious about all the things his family forsakes for the Lord. He begins to realize he doesn’t want the Rapture to happen, just yet; not before he sees his first movie, stars in the school play, or has his first kiss. Before long, Aaron makes the plunge from conflicted do-gooder to full-fledged teen rebel…In this funny and heartfelt coming of age memoir, debut author Aaron Hartzler recalls his teenage journey to find the person he is without losing the family who loves him. It’s a story about losing your faith, finding your place, and learning your very own truth–which is always stranger than fiction.” I’ve read the book, and I can attest to the fact that it’s excellent — funny, engrossing, moving. A great read. Whoever wins it is in for a treat. (PS: Los Angelenos, Aaron is also going to be speaking at the Santa Monica Public Library tomorrow (Saturday) at 3pm. He’s also moderating the panel on which Heather and I are appearing at the LA Times Festival of Books on the 21st. Synchronicity!)

(This contest is open to US residents only.)

    leather leggings help
    hide all the nervous sweating
    no stealing today

  2. Jenn

    Leather spataloons
    did you stuff your pants in those
    or are those shorts

  3. lila s.

    Her legs are shrouded
    in mysterious leather.
    What an enigma.

  4. Cathy

    Thigh high leather boots
    Fold-over calf protectors
    Look! I’m fully clothed.

  5. Mel

    You told her to look
    into pants and so she did.
    What more can we ask?

  6. Meredith M.

    Boots and shorts — shiver.
    But look! In my carry-on:
    Leather leggings. Yay!

  7. Piglet the Pooh

    Lindsay channels her
    inner Lenny Kravitz by
    wearing spaboochaps

  8. Helen

    I won’t attempt a haiku, but what I think we’re seeing is leather leggings over pants, tucked into boots, with spats over all of that.

    • ohmygodGO

      I, also, should not attempt a haiku. but, uh, silly question: do the celebs have to take shoes off for airport screenings like the rest of us? ’cause I can’t imagine undoing that get up and then re-doing it. Or is a perk of 1st class flight?

      • Heather

        Maybe she’s posing as over 75 so she doesn’t have to take her shoes off. (My dad was psyched when he turned 75 and didn’t have to take his shoes off anymore.)

        • Helen

          She’s probably getting into, or off of, a private flight. TSA doesn’t regulate security for those; the airplane owners and operators do.

          • HKS

            Thanks Helen. I wondered the exact same thing, but that makes sense. It also makes sense that most celebs fly private, because they are always wearing such awfully complex things that would never work going through regular TSA screening.

  9. Adrienne

    Holy High Waders
    You were on a plane LiLo
    Not a fugging boat

    Misheard my advice
    “Get thee to a tannery”

  15. CM

  21. Katy B

    Stoned LiLo pondered,
    “So my hair has extensions;
    Why can’t my boots too?”

  22. Kate S

    Description of this
    Requires a portmanteau:

  23. Laura M

    This is my f*ck you
    T.S.A. outfit. Those goons
    took my pills last time.

  24. Amy

    Holey-kneed jeans, and
    No time to patch. What to do?
    Wrap legs in leather.

  25. Monica

    My legs were cold, my
    jeans were cold, my boots were cold.
    Hence, I wear spats. Layers.

  26. Simone

    On Wednesdays, she wears
    pink. But on Fridays, she wears
    a leather hot mess.

  27. Megan F

    Leather hip waders
    for some mid-air angling
    Only Lilo dares

  28. Patti

    Yo! Tights are not pants
    so she does a one eighty.

  29. Chickie

    Leather pants over

  30. kfletch

    Stale air, sweaty boots
    Spawn evil leather thigh tubes
    Look out, whiskered crotch!

  31. Elizabeth

    If boots won’t slip off,
    can’t check for contraband. No
    fly in a thigh-high.

  32. foo

    Charlie Sheen’s new couch
    Met a worse fate than the dress

  33. Danna

    Paraphrase from The Princess Bride,
    I do not think this is what

    Boots? Leggings? Spats? Hmm.
    But after all that water,
    How does she go pee?

  35. kelly

    Thirty thousand feet
    Closet-sized restrooms, can’t sit
    One solution: chaps

  39. Catherine

    Lilo, even long
    leather leggings over jeans
    won’t hide the crazy.

  40. JLK

    For when your waders
    Need waders, look to Lohan.
    What’s she wading in?!

  41. Adam

    Like the cocaine
