Fashion Silliness


This is a guest post by The Urban Blabbermouth. Comments are welcome!
Why do women wear jeans with tears in them?  I am at a loss to understand this fashion style.  Do the women want to look like they stole their boyfriends’ jeans after he accidentally tore them while building a skyscraper?  A modern day Potlatch where the women want to make a statement of how rich they are where they can buy expensive jeans then tear them up? Are women so warm in their jeans that they need cooling vents?

I saw a pair of jeans that had such clean tears that could only have been made by a scissors.  That moves the style from tears in jeans to cut-outs in jeans.  Is there a fashion difference between tears and cuts-outs?  Tears look accidental while cut-outs says, “yeah, I did this!”

What if this cut-out trend were to progress further?  Create enough cuts-outs in the jeans and there would be no more material left of the jeans except for a waist band.  The jean waist band would look strange, like a jeans belt with its own loops.  I would not want any woman I know to wear that because all she would have on is a jeans belt on her hips and nothing else but exposed undies below it.
Hip Hugger jeans, oh, excuse me, Low Riser jeans are just embarrassing.  We get to see an excess of muffin tops.  I just love that … muffin tops.  Sounds a lot better than spare tire around the middle.  We get to see the tops of the thong undies. This view has the glorious name of Whale Tail. If not undies then we get to see their butt cleavage.  Must be a fashionable name for that view.   Imagine getting to see all three views at the same time.  I once saw the tail end of a feminine pad exposed out the butt cleavage of a woman in Low Riser jeans.  How embarrassing.

 Fashion can be so silly.

A Subway Journey Home

by The Urban Blabbermouth. Comments are welcome! ~ There is a ritual to theNew York City subway system. Once there, you lose your humanity.  You are transformed into a savage, brutal and selfish automaton.  Savage in that you push and shove other riders out of your way to get into the subway car.  Brutal in that you never excuse yourself for any atrocities that you commit to get in the subway car.  Selfish in that you never give up your seat to anyone, no matter how crippled or old or pregnant they are.  Automaton in that you never look at any one else as a human being.

Now there are certain strategies that you can employ to be a successful subway rider.  You can stand by the door and obstruct the way just to be selfish and ornery.  That strategy is designed to increase your standing with your fellow passengers by impressing them with how vicious you can be pushing back at people trying to push into the car.  Whenever I see this strategy employed, I immediately piggy back on it.  I move …

Im gonna git u Sukkah

by The Urban Blabbermouth [who may or may not be shown in the photo above... - v-E] ~ True story. I am walking to my car and I notice a couple of Jewish fellows, twenty somethings, with the bouquets of what looks like bamboo or palm. I know they are Jewish for they look Hasidic. They are wearing long black jackets, wide brim black fedora hats, and have curly sideburns. In truth, I classify all Jewish who dress like this as Hasidic although they may identify themselves differently. They are standing near the corner canvassing passersby.

Encyclopedia Brown Bear

by The Urban Blabbermouth
At an age when other children decide to set up lemonade stands, Baby Bear decided to start a detective agency. His decision resulted from his experience in the Goldilocks home invasion. If you don't know this well-publicized crime case, Google Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Baby Bear wanted to become a policeman to help the other denizens of the Forest with their troubles and to maintain justice for all. Alas, the police did not accept children as applicants.

Baby Bear ran to his community library and borrowed the renowned guide, The Hardy Boys' Detective Handbook. Baby Bear spent the next twenty days, the library's lending period, studying the text. He chose the business name of "Encyclopedia Brown Bear Detective Agency" after his hero, Leroy "Encyclopedia” Brown. Baby Bear's dad hung the business sign across the garage door and opened a folding card table and four chairs in the entrance below.

On the first day, the Big Bad Wolf…
