How to Carry a Knockoff Designer Handbag

1. Don't?

2. Don't. Get a regular one.

3. Just really don't. Most of them are cheap because there is evil in the world.

4. If you're going to carry an evil knockoff designer handbag anyway, at least get one that looks like you could, in some stretch of the imagination, afford if it were real. Otherwise, it's obvious you're carrying an evil knockoff, which defeats the purpose. (What purpose?)

5. Don't.
