Fashion

All right, children. Attention please. Sit quietly at your computer desks while we listen to the multi-media presentation presented by our corporate donors.

This is Clark Gable. He was once in a movie called It Happened One Night. Unfortunately, what didn't happen was Mr. Gable wearing an undershirt. The movie-going population took notice and sales of undershirts plummeted overnight.

This is John F. Kennedy. He was a very popular president who failed to wear a hat to his inauguration. The inauguration viewing population took notice and sales of hats plummeted overnight. Yes, Jimmy, this is who Mr. Obama patterns himself after. No, he has not dug up the corpse of Marilyn Monroe. Yet.

This is John McCain. Yes, Susie, he is Sarah Palin's running mate. Since the Republican Vice Presidential candidate has come into the glasses wearing population's eye, sales of the Kawasaki 704 glasses has increased overnight.

What is the moral of the story? People are sheep. No, not blue sheep that look like they've been assaulted by a smurf. But consuming sheep who can't set a trend for themselves without looking to others for inspiration. Even if it is godawful clothing.

Which is why we hope whomever does become our next President be it McCain, Obama or Farve doesn't wear pants to the inauguration.

And that will be the kind of leadership that will save this ailing nation from going down! That'll bring the change

I love that McCain is Palin's running mate. Where did he go anyway? Now he doesn't even want to debate tomorrow night. Maybe he'll just send Sarah in his place.

You know what would be great? If a president started a trend, of, you know, taking care of his fellow man, doing what's right, and being honest. I'm the sure the pants thing is much more likely.

If Brett doesn't wear pants, I'd pay admission.

*blushes*

That said, I will now NEVER buy a pair of Kawasaki 704 glasses. I'm anti-sheep that way.

I couldn't read this post. I don't have my glasses on.
