From booty shorts to belly shirts, some intern fashions make companies cringe
In Washington, D.C., where they've never quite forgotten Monica Lewinsky, a name has evolved for the scantily-clad summer staff: "skinterns." "It's something we deal with all the time," says Carol Vellucci, director of the University of Baltimore's Career Center. "One staff member said she received a call from a not-to-be-named employer who had to speak to their intern about wearing booty shorts to the office. I said, 'She had to tell her that'"?
So, is this why every DC thread turns into an 'ARE GRISL HOTIN DC??' thread?

My forehead? I've got a low BMI, there won't really be an indentation.

You can say skinterns then have no skin...or terns.

Or --- shudder --- they might be.

I've never gotten a job on merit. Only on skin.
