Just head for the sea, Lee, and dress like the Klan, Stan…

June 28, 2010

FASHION/Blog Guy, my husband has a fashion problem, and I’m hoping you can help. See, he’s in the Klan, and…

Let me stop you right there. The Ku Klux Klan?

Sure. The Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. You know, the KKK.

Then he has a lot more than a fashion problem, lady.

See, there it is, that attitude! Your blog has given fashion help to  zombies, smurfs, firing squad victims, train robbers, satyrs, gladiators’ wives, but you draw the line at this, in spite of the Blogger’s Code.

Damn! The Blogger’s Code! You’ve got me! Okay, what do you need?

Well, we’re planning a vacation at a beach resort, but Earl still wants to proudly proclaim his Klan membership. I need to find someplace that offers suitable beachwear for him.

fashion klan 200I can help. Have a look at this fashion show from a couple of weeks ago. Everything the stylish, happenin’ white supremacist needs for the beach. A hood with sunglasses, a robe with pockets for his crosses, matches and lighter fluid…  Even a big pocket for his beach reading.

Oh, Earl don’t read.

Why doesn’t that surprise me? Anyway, this outfit was shown in Trinidad and Tobago, so just book yourself a week there for fun in the sun.

Thanks. Trinidad, huh? Isn’t that a….

No, you’ll be fine. Would I steer you wrong?

Justin wanted so badly to join the fraternity (Alpha Beta Soup), that he quickly donned the costume without objection. He knew that this was all part of the hazing ritual. He stepped out of the car, taking a moment to survey his surroundings before his “friends” drove off into the night, laughing hysterically. It would now be up to him to walk all the way back to campus. It would be a long walk in this getup…but totally worth it if he was accepted into the fraternity. He began to trudge down the street in the same direction that the car had driven…when a cold chill ran down his back. He suddenly realized he had been unceremoniously dropped off in the middle of Harlem……….

Services for Justin will be held on Monday in his hometown. Justin has been nominated for a Darwin Award…

What’s really funny, though….is the fact that his getup is preventing him from seeing who is coming up behind him…wearing what appears to be a cape…and no pants…

When did the KKK become knighted? I think Sir Elton John and Sir Al Roker would have had some serious objections to that. Or are knighthoods just being handed out all willy-nilly these days?

So, BG, is the Bloggers Code in XML or HTML5?

Spin… just a glimpse!!!! :(

Seriously, the only thing remotely right about that kind of fashon is the abs peek-a-boo. After the pics of the grapefruit smuggler the other day, it’s only fair.

Jazz… did you say “seriously”?

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

Oh, so THAT’S why they’re called Knight-Hoods.
It all finally makes sense – sort of.

Posted by zeitgeist | Report as abusive

Oops. Sorry, Shra. Don’t taze me, sista!

Posted by AllThatJazz | Report as abusive

Don’t worry, Jazz. I don’t think Shra is allowed to use a taser at her new job. We’re all safe now.

Posted by rcbasler | Report as abusive

Jazz… don’t you mean a pec-a-boo?

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

Oy! Who said so! I can always wield the taser on OE…. irrespective of where I am!!!

It looks like the class clown joined the KKK.

Posted by DoctorDoll | Report as abusive

Is it just me, or is his robe being held up by a piece of string?

Oh wait, that sounds about right.

The poor boy is saying his prayers: he is hoping none of his friends recognize him in the dorky outfit, and is giving thanks not to have been the one in the rather odd get up behind him. A cape and no pants does not a super hero make.
