Les Hookeuses du Bor'de'lo

Word on the street has it that the local hookers are putting on a show in downtown Shediac...

Well, maybe not quite what one would expect from a gang of hookers.

The town hasn't tarred and feathered these brazen women yet!

The hookers' world seems pretty soft and cushy!

I guess some people are just hard-wired for this sort of life.

Here's a portrait of what one hooker's brain looks like. Colourful thoughts!

I used to be a hooker, too. It was great to meet with old friends and see what they've been up to in the past year. A most colourful exhibit!


  1. Ho ho, indeed! Lovely work there, being a hooker was too much of a strain for me and I gave it up early after many failed attempts. How DO you hook and swig at the same time??

  2. Alas and alack, swigging and hooking do not make good bed fellows. At least not for this sort of hookage. I gave it up because it was just so time consuming and I am sloooow at it. It would be past noon and I'd still be hooking in the kitchen in my night clothes, or up until 3 in the morning, hooking away. However, I have not given up my tools of the trade and I may live to hook again!

  3. Its amazing work on this post,
    its so beautiful special the first and the last painting ^___^
