Free Advice of the Day

July 28, 2015
For the love of God, stop dressing like crap

Style, low budget and comfort aren’t mutually exclusive. Keep that in mind if you’re older than 12.

As a dog owner who strives to enjoy the simple life as much as they do, as an agnostic with seriously atheist tendencies, as a guy whose standard uniform in a perfect world would always consist of shorts and a well-worn t-shirt, and as one who never really grew up, I have just one thing to say.

Bite me.

Okay, maybe I should say something else, lol. Sigh.

Clothes don't make the people; people make the people. Generally speaking, what people wear is just not important to me.

I'd much rather surround myself with a group of poor funny easy going people wearing shorts and t-shirts than a group of wealthy uptight pretentious elitist whining pompous blowhard snobs wearing tuxedos and top hats, but hey, maybe that's just me, and my girlfriend, and our friends, and our dog, and our other dog, and Adam Sandler.

It's important I surround myself with people who make me happy. - Adam Sandler

Along the same "vain". They say power corrupts. Maybe so. But maybe corrupt people seek power. And maybe absolutely corrupt people seek absolute power.

What if the system is so corrupt, that only corrupt people are encouraged to seek and can achieve power.

I don't see Republicans or Democrats, I see liars and deceivers at least at the Federal Level.

Shorts and a worn t-shirt - sartorial splendor, no doubt. But not fit for our politicians.

From the movie "Caddyshack":

Danny Noonan: [trying to make small talk with Chuck after Smails has introduced them] Well, I'm going to college too.

Chuck Schick: [haughtily] Really... are you going to Harvard?

Danny Noonan: No, St. Copius of northern...

Chuck Schick: Where?

Lacey Underall: [walking up with Terry, at Danny] Hey Cary Grant... you wanna get high?

Terry the Hippie: Wait a minute! I only got a little!

Lacey Underall: Then split, OK Terry?

Terry the Hippie: [leaving] Sure.

Lacey Underall: [to Chuck] Bye, Chuck!

[she and Danny grimace towards him, he leaves]

Danny Noonan: Guess I'm a little overdressed?

Lacey Underall: Depends on what's underneath... come on.

Does the monetary system tailor monsters or do monsters tailor the monetary system? If only there was a tailor rule that could tailor swift! Badum-ching.

And where do the chickens and nest eggs come in to play? The hen house bubble? Badum-ching.

I see Republican and Democrat monsters hiding inside suits. Law suits. If only there were casual neckties to go with them? You know, neck noose'd and fancy freedoms. Badum-ching.

I think our politicians throw many fits, so throwing them all out would therefore be fitting. Badum-ching.

Satorial splenda! The emperor's new clothes are fake, sugar. Badum-ching. :)

Don't even get me started on Caddyshack! Hahaha! :)

Is it superficial of me to judge people by what they are wearing? Or by the color of their skin?

Um, yes. That's actually the definition.

mab said...

The definition?

Fine, but does that apply to super models who are superfacial?

Stagflationary Mark said...

Psst... Super facials ain't cheap, but today only we can exfoliate you and stuff for just $19.99! And for you sport fans, we can put your dead face skin in a commemorative super bowl for just $10 more! Guaranteed to impress the ladies!

Good Lord, save us from people who wear a top hat with a tux.

Personally I can't bear T-shirts, but I don't care if other people wear them.

My dress code was destroyed forever when my toddler daughter opined "Daddy's too fat for his kilt".

When my girlfriend's sister's family was in town, their young son asked his mom as we were leaving the house to tour the city, "Why is he wearing his workout clothes?"

Could have been worse. At least he didn't call them pajamas. Hahaha! :)
