Well, we all knew they were out there, but now they have their own modeling agency.

I hear they also hire out escorts and are actively recruiting new scouts. These guys are busy!

Good question. Though I do hear that some of their managers also write for Wronkled Magazine

That's the FIRST honest information I've ever seen a sluggo put out there, they should take a drug test.

Test? Nah, how can they do their jobs properly if they aren't high?

Come on you guys, I'm sure the CEO is running a place that's just as good as a lot of other more well-known agencies. Not everyone can be Ford. He does have a degree in Los Managementes des Môdes Professionelles from the Detroit Institute of Modeling - now that's not something a lot of people can lay claim to. They don't accept just anyone into that program. It's very exclusive.

Seriously some people here really need to either expand their knowledge about The Industry or GTFO.

I don't see anything around with it besides that it looks like a porn site. I'd probably look them up, they can't be any worse than the agency I'm with now.

I LOVE their home page! this is a quote directly copied from their home page...

"Our management team has months of experience managing llamas. Let us put our industry knowledge to work for you".

MONTHS of experience! Every llama on MM should sign up NOW. Who wouldn't give their career to someone with MONTHS of experience!  smile

Their FB page motto:

TOOOOO funny! This has to be an April fool's joke!


BTW, you now have to be careful when you call some model's "manager" a sluggo now! You might get sued for copyright infringement!  smile

I can hear models everywhere now saying, "Screw Ford, I'm now with Sluggo"!

Wow! somebody put a lot of work in for a April 1st joke. Unfortunately only the really old timers will bet the "sluggo" reference. That is some real drappy shit right there. smile

But Greed is what keeps Scammer's going. How many freaking times have we seen here and elsewhere...with a fake check of 2,500...how many greedy people think the scam is real. All it takes one a week....or more. I don't blame the scammer...I blame the Greedy People. You know...There's sucker is born every minute...P. T. Barnum

Thanks, everyone, for the kudos on Sluggo. It was a lot of fun to put together. We actually based it on the new Insider House platform (a very customized Joomla core) and we were able to stand it up in under 24 hours. This is the platform for our next iteration of our social sites (RockyHorror.org, Model Insider, etc) later this year. So making this site was a good proof of concept.

We had a team of four writers for the content (including me, so never say I can't write comedy!) and the graphics were done by a contractor.

But this is what we do. Doing an April Fool site like this just demonstrates our capabilities.

And I already have a kick-ass idea for next year wink

You got more done in 24 hours than this site's owners got done in the last 24 months. Well played.

My favorite part:

Photographers complain that our escorts disrupt and distract them with our pointed looks or even waggling a finger at them if we think they're going a little too far, or even thinking about it. You know what? Tough for them! It's all about you, right?

I can just see Manny in the corner, complete with white tie and black shirt, 5:00 O'Clock shadow....prison-yard stare the whole time I'm working.....

Somebody really LOVES their April Fools jokes.  This was just brilliant.
