“Hey Boss! Check out the milksop!”

January 25, 2008

It’s time again to unveil the latest outfits that well-dressed police decoys will wear as they try to entice criminals. This one is ingenious, designed to set up this season’s opening line of choice:

“Good morrow, what say you? I hail from Elizabethan times! What year is it, good sir, and do people still value the gold sovereigns that overflow my pockets?”

For a look at other recent decoy fashions, check these out:

Say, can you direct me to the ruffians?
And, for the well-dressed police decoy…
“Hi, I’m your Internet date!”

It kind of reminds me of wedgies. Now, hear me out. The coat is really baggy. Kind of like teenage boys’ trousers these days. When I was a kid, they had to find a kid with low-riding pants to allow a grip on the underwear elastic. Now-a-days, kids have to pull up the jacket because the elastic should be RIGHT THERE! If I had worn low-rider pants as a kid, I’d have scars on my scrotum scars. Where are the jocks these days? Anyway, to return to my point, why has nobody wedgied this guy to within an inch of his life, along with the designer?

I love the way your nose-picker finger ring matches your tee shirt. Way to accessorize!
