The Travesty in This Picture?


On the right’s an appealing 16 year old.

With 4 ~ count ’em! ~ FOUR pairs of $500 (yes, fivehunnertdollah) jeans in her arms.
Even if she buys a pair, there is something just so wrong with that.
Or am I jealous? Is it just me?

    It’s not just you. I find it hard to understand how a pair of denim pants costs so much. Heck, I squawk when they cost more than $30! Unless the buttons and rivets are made of gold.
    Sheesh. She’s carrying the price of a semester of college books there. Talk about throwing Susan B. Anthonys’ down the drain by the handful.

    If any kid of mine asks for something like this, I will consider myself a failure.

    Wow. Two jeans would pay my rent… well, almost. Even if I had the money, I would just go buy guy Levis. And then a better house. I don’t care if my butt is as flat as a highway in Kansas.

    Bill Cosby rocks. His line on The Cosby Show when Theo wanted to buy a $95 shirt: “I don’t have a $95 shirt, and I have a job!”

  5. Ken Summers says:

    And I’ve never paid $500 for a freakin’ suit!

    Gave you guys a shout-out at the Hive on this. Turns out my reply just got too long for the comments. (Sorry for the thread-jack.)

  7. Ken Summers says:

    Hell, Nightfly, mine was even longer than that.

    (To steal a line from Andrea and a link from Sis who has a problem with capitalization. And just before I hit the save button for this I notice that Nightfly rips on it too.) WARNING: BAD LANGUAGE AHEAD…

    You’re proud yours is longer than a fly’s Ken?

  10. Sounds like he needs a pair of $500 ‘mine’s-bigger-than-yours’ jeans to me!

  11. nobrainer says:

    Looks like I should be making jeans.
    Seriously I worked for Levis, I would take standard jeans, put a different pattern on the back pocket and come up with a clever name and mark them up 1000%.
    A fool and his money are soon parted. For sure.

    You are PRETTY FRICKIN’ NERVY, for a THIEF.

  13. Ken Summers says:

    As I said elsewhere, for $500 they not only better get the butt right but attract some righteous tail.

  14. Mr. Bingley says:

    “NoBrainer Jeans” for $350.00
    Dude, you’d sell millions.

  15. get the butt right but attract some righteous tail
    Sniff. Um ehrlich zu sein, ich hatte von dir auch gar nichts anderes erwartet.
    Sniff.

  16. Mr. Bingley says:

    Du auch bist ein berliner?

    German humor is so . . . .
    Well, “funny” isn’t quite the right word. ūüôā
    I think it’s awesome that someone has found a way to make that much money off of some denim. I wish you told me the brand name. I might want to copy their business model!

  18. Ken Summers says:

    Doensnt wie allen.

  19. Ken Summers says:

    Mike, fur brande nammes, getten zie hier. Ich bin linkenwhoren.

  20. Ich ähnele dieser Anmerkung, danke.
    (Guten Tag, Mike! Wie geht’s?)
    Herr Summers ist der Klugscheißer von den Verbindungen, nicht wahr?

  21. Mr. Bingley says:

    Ich ähnele dieser Anmerkung, danke.
    “I’ll anal these americans, thanks!”
    Ah, german humor at its finest…

  22. Ken Summers says:

    Fahrfergnugen, baby, fahrfergnugen.

  23. Ken Summers says:

    Which reminds me, my kids rather like the German word for the exit to a parking garage. But they were young.

  24. I love a theme

    It’s German Day at the Coalition! S’funny, you’d think someone who call himself “Wunderkraut” wouldn’t be such a stickischer int der mudden….

  25. Mr. Bingley says:

    A big hit in 8th grade german class was conjugating the verb “fahren” (to drive)
    ich fahre
    du fahrst
    er fahrt…
