Cosmo would beg to differ about the bread lines. They are writing an article about this right now.
"HOW TO SEX UP YOUR BREAD LINE!
1- Wear sexy lingerie under your secondhand clothes. Feel the satin and lace whisper against your thighs as you stand in the freezing snow to get some nutrients.
2- Bring along your boy toy! If the line is snaking around the block and you get tired of having to listen to everyone curse Henry Paulson and Richard Fuld, then you can just play "pin the cock on my tail!"
3- Request penis-shaped baguettes. Just for a laugh.
4- Put a scrunchie around your loaf of pumpernickel and call it a very bad boy.
