Tank Top Tuesday

With the embers of the American economy still smoldering at our feet, I think it's time for a little distraction. And what could be more distracting than beautiful women in tank tops? Never mind that Rome is burning, bring on the bread and circuses! I mean, you can't sob uncontrollably at your 401K statement all the time, right? Though – pssst – I've got a hot tip for investors looking for a sure thing during these terribly troubled times. Booze, buy stock in booze. Surely if there is one thing the entire country can agree on right now it's that we all need a drink. So please raise a glass to the lovely ladies of the fall television season. I've rounded up all the new tank-topped promo shots I could find. May they temporarily make you forget that our entire financial system may seize up and die at any moment. Shoot, who cares if the economy is in the tank when you can look at women in tanks? And if all else fails, barkeep, another round on me. And keep 'em coming.

Sarah Shahi, “Life”I still miss Carmen. Luckily, I don't have to miss her tank tops.

Eliza Dushku, “Dollhouse”Never mind the shut downs. In Joss we trust.

Evangeline Lilly, “Lost”Deserted islands don't seem like such a terrible option right now.

Elizabeth Mitchell, “Lost”p.s. Plus who knew they had such a wide tank top selection?

Jessalyn Gilsig & Hayden Panettiere, “Heroes”Looks like Take Your Daughter to Tank Top Day is in full swing.

Natascha McElhone, “Californication”Hank Moody is an idiot.

Michaela Conlin, “Bones”I can't wait to meet Roxie.

Elizabeth Reaser, “The Ex-List”Statistically, at least one of those exes has to be female, right?

Eva La Rue, “CSI: Miami”I hardly recognize her not inexplicably bathed in orange light.

Nadine Velazquez, “My Name is Earl”This isn't technically a tank top. But, look, midriff.

Summer Glau, “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”TV show titles shouldn't have colons. There, I've said it.

Lena Headey, “T:SCC”p.s Abbreviating it doesn't make the colon any less odious.

Olivia Wilde, “House”A pocket tank? That's officially the gayest thing I've ever seen.

Oh my, thank you for including Michaela Conlin in this one. She never gets enough love.
I actually saw her at Comic-Con this last year and she is simply a knockout.

You know, I don't care about what the Cure said... I love Tuesdays!! Expecially when filled with hot women in tank tops...
Thank you Ms.D, thank you...

Thanks for brightening up an otherwise bleak morning.

Dear Ms. Snarker, you can always be counted on to put a smile on my face and a bit of lightheartedness in my perspective.

What bailout? Who cares? Did I just say that?

If it weren't for the happiness and joy brought about by viewing your blogs DS, I don't know how I'd get through my day... after all one can only take so much bad news!

I agree with Zooey... thanks for the Michaela Conlin love. Then again thanks for Olivia, Lena, Summer, Sarah, Eliza, Evangeline, Jessalyn, Hayden, Natascha, Elizabeth (both of them), Eva and Nadine!

There's never not a good time for a hot woman in a tank top!

NICE collection. I love Tank Top Tuesday! And the pocket tank...genius!

RHEA said...

In the original Israeli shot, one of the exes IS a woman. Not sure if they're doing that with the US version though....

Sublimefemme said...

Inquiring minds want to know, why is a tank top with a little pocket the gayest thing ever? My guesses:

It's perfect for a condom.

It's dandyish. It can be used for a micro-sized pocket hankerchief.

When everyone is finished drooling over the girls, please respond!

Would you believe I'm just watching the episode of the L Word in which Carmen makes her first appearance...then I log in here and see that amazing pic and then Eliza Dushku and THEN Evangeline Lilly! It's raining, cold and dark in Ireland but suddenly things seem brighter!

I really love pocket tank :) can't wait to see her again in the next House's season.

Annie said...

Yummy! Keep more Lena coming! It's so funny since at Comic Con, everyone goes crazy over Summer Glau - those girls can have her, I'll take Lena any day!

P.S. Who cares about the colon in T:SCC just as long as we get more tank toppy Lena goodness! :)
