Where she had to be

As a general rule, women named “Chanel” don’t drive forklifts. (Not that I have anything at all against women driving forklifts; my daughter used to drive a forklift.) A more likely destination:

Chanel Iman Robinson, known commonly today as simply Chanel Iman, is the youngest and most successful African-American High Fashion Model of her time. The Victoria’s Secret “Angel” is well-known for having positive energy and endless legs that have walked countless runways around the world.

“Her time” began in 2006, when she was only sixteen. (She turns 23 tomorrow.) Herewith, an example of positive energy, followed by an example of endless legs:

For those worried about Absolute Percentages, Ms Iman is one-quarter (on her mother’s side) Korean.

    Then she’d do even better in PC blood-counter circles by selling herself as “most successful Korean-American model” [probably THE ONLY].

    Not yet. Black trumps Asian in the current PC hierarchy.

    I keep looking at this photo and wanting to get her some pants and also a five-leg office chair, since those four-leg ones are tippy and a safety hazard.

    But then, I’m not a dude.
