FLOOD is proud to present this exclusive fashion primer from Dr. Steve Brule, the star of Adult Swim’s Check It Out! with Dr. Steve Brule. We caught up with the Doc at his mother Dorris Pringle-Brule-Salahari’s home. It was a very informative and educational experience.
Dr. Brule and FLOOD hope these ideas and images will assist readers with the challenges of dressing to impress when money is scarce but the impulse to be creative and fancy-free is very much alive. Enjoy!

SUNGLASSES. AND A REAL COOL GUY STRUT.
How can you look cool without breaking the bank?
EASY PREASY LEMONG SQUEEZEY. JUST GO IN YOUR MOMMA’S CLOSET WHEN SHE IS AT THE BEAUTY PRARLOUR. MOMMA HAS ALL THE FANCY FROCKS YOU COULD EVER WANT. AND THEY ARE FREE FREE FREE. WHY DIDNT YOU THINK OF THAT? I DON’T KNOW.
What is the coolest clothing accessory?
SOME UNDERWAER THAT LET’S THOSE BERRIES SWING. THAT WILL KEEP YOU COOL AND KEEP THAT DANG RASH OFF YOUR DINGUS.
Is jewelry cool? What kinds? Why?
JEWELRY IS COOL. EVERY KINDS. AS MUCH AS YOU WANT. BUT IF YOU SEE A BOBO ON THE ROAD GIVE HIM SOME OF IT SO HE CAN BUY A DANG SANGWICH. WE WILL NEVER KNOW WHY.

NEVER DID DO THAT YET. BUT WHEN I DO SHE WILL WEAR ALL THE SILVER AND GOLD AND SILVER!
What is a clothing turn-on for you? What is a clothing turn-off for you?
WHAT AM I A DANG LIGHT SWITCH? CLOTHES DONT TURN ME ON OR OFF. GETTING KNOCKED ON THE HEAD TIRNS ME OFF AND TICKLES IN MY DRINGUS TURNS ME ON. MIND YOUR OWN BREES WAX!

I JUST WAITED FOR MOMMA TO LEAVE AND RAN INTO THAT CLOSET AND PUT ON WHATEVER MADE ME FEEL FRANCY. I HAD TO GO REAL FAST. MOMMA GETS VERY MAD IF I STAIN HER THINGS. SORRY MOMMA.

JUST LOVE YOURSELF OKAY? YOU ARE THE BEST BOY OR GIRL THAT EVER DID COME OUT OF A JANUS. YOU CAN DO IT. DONT LISTEN TO THE BULLIES. STRUT YOUR STRUFF. IF YOU GOT IT FLAUNT IT. AND EVEN IF YOU DOMT GOT IT STILL FLAUNT. EVERY ONE LOVES FLAUNT. FL
