Holy Magi-a-Go-Go!

It has been written that on Three Kings Day, January 6, the day of Epiphany, Three Wise Men (in our case, 2 men + 1 woman) traveled from afar to Bethlehem to welcome the Christ child, to bring gifts to the Baby Jesus —  gold, frankincense and myrhh.

GOLD: CdG 8 88, Santa Maria Novella Gold Musk. FRANKINCENSE: CdG Avignon, CdG Zagorsk. MYRRH: Bond No.9 Cooper Street, Odin No.3

How did they know to bring room scents? Oh, I forgot — they’re wise men. Jesus was born in a manger, after all, in a barn, surrounded by farm animals, including one tired donkey. It could not have been pleasant. No indoor plumbing. Not even at the inn. So we, the B-Team, a. k. a. Melchior, Balthazar and Caspar, got creative: What would a savior want on his birthday? Playsam’s red Speedy Mini LeMans, natch. Trumpette’s Silver Crystal-Set Piggy Bank to grow on. Perfume is key. Balthazar’s choice, the gold star — Bond No. 9 Fire Island, every man’s must-have for personal appearances among the masses in the scorching Middle East. After all, isn’t good grooming next to godliness?!? Preach.

Not pictured above are gifts we wise three stashed in our camel-packs: Trumpette gold penny loafers, Etiquette striped socks, baby Aviator Ray-bans, Comme des Garcons Play! boy polo, Havaiana baby blue sandals, Jao hand sanitizer, Klen wash-on sunscreen. Hey, life is tough on the road, even for a miracle.

Days before daddy’s birthday on August 11, Brooke Hogan did some serious shopping at Babalu. The reality-show star of “Brooke Knows Best” spent two hours picking out the perfect surprise package for papa. How do you show someone named Hulk that you care?

Let us count the ways:

  • “I Love You” Bloomsberry chocolate
  • White Ray-Ban wayfarers
  • Two pairs of AuskieBum League swimwear (one blue, one orange)
  • Esteban Bois de Plume eau de toilette
  • Leone Pure licorice
  • 1 bag of Cracker Jacks
  • Whose Hair? book by Christina Christoforou (Hulk’s on p. 90)

As an homage to Christoforou’s splendid collection of hand-drawn illustrations of hairstyles of the rich & famous, we give you our very own heady puzzle.

Whose Hair?!?

(Hint: He loves dogs.)

* Tune in to October’s blog-zine for the answer.
