We Fixed Her Blouse (2006)

We made molds off of this man and fixed it, praise God, where that we could make the fiberglass man, so we made him one, and so we called a guy in Wichita Falls that had this woman, and we said we'll sell you our man to go with your woman.

And he said, no, I'll sell you my woman to go with your man. So I said okay.

So I bought the woman for $500 down there and brought her home, and whenever I brought her home she had on real low-neck dress. If you look on the Internet you'll see all the rest of them that they got a low neck dress, and so we modified her up and fixed, fixed her blouse to where she looked more holy.

And on her skirt, she had a miniskirt on and we extended her foot, we extended her skirt two foot until we fixed her up and put her up. Like she is, That's Jacqueline Kennedy, and she also had a bracelet on her on her right arm, and we took the bracelet off, and we got tired.

We was gonna put long sleeves on her but we got tired of working on her, so we just patched where the bracelet was and put her up.
