Supply and Demand

When Helen introduced her now famous stonewashed Butt-Hugger® jeans, they were an instant worldwide success. Word spread quickly online about their terrific fit, the best form fitting jeans ever made. They were flattering, no matter what size or shape a woman’s derrière.

Unfortunately for Helen, demand for her butt-huggers far exceeded supplies, and her factory couldn’t produce them fast enough, which made them unaccessible to her rabid fans, who felt they were left dangling.

By the time Helen got production up to meet demand, competing brands had started selling similar butt-hugging jeans, and Helen’s inventory languished on the shelves of her warehouse.

As Helen’s lawyer drew up the bankruptcy papers, Helen reluctantly admitted that her halo had tarnished. But undeterred, Helen began hatching a new idea. But this time she would learn her lesson and make sure that she’d better manage supply and demand for her Bust-Buster® bra.

    I no longer have a butt. Gravity seems to have made it disappear. I think It’s now part of my thighs.
