For the avoidance of doubt please be aware that some clothing is age limited, if you really insist on keeping certain articles they should be restricted to the privacy of your own home. Travelling today as a commuter on the public railway I saw two examples that led me to publish this advice, clearly it is not as common knowledge as I suspected.
The 40 year old woman who appeared to travel all of the way to London, the heart of commerce, in a baby-grow decorated as Tigger clearly had no concept of normal dress. I struggle with the whole concept of these all in one garments past the age of 8 months but as an adult? What was she thinking? If that wasn’t a wager then she must have been on day release. Its a shame that ‘Tigger’ didn’t travel with me to Hackney Wick where she could have met up with a 30 odd year old who chose to come as spiderman. I’m not joking, he had red leggings and an extra large red hoody resplendent with spider webs and spiders, even over the hood which he kept up, probably wisely. If it wasn’t for the fact that he was so overweight I would have been expecting him to spray webs from his wrist.
Is there a small percentage of the population that are incapable of maturing? That are forever stuck in the world of Barbie dolls and Action Men? Did they miss some key stage where everyone swapped from comics to newspapers? If that is the case then surely the manufacturers that are producing and retailing these over sized childrens outfits must be held accountable for drawing these social misfits into the public domain? If the government are seriously considering tax levies on high fat foods surely there is a strong case for a punitive tax on adult super hero outfits?
In other news I hear that Hertfordshire suffered very heavy snowfall over the weekend, I find the news oddly comforting. On the bitter east coast we have had a viciously powerful wind, as witnessed by the sand and seaweed distributed along the high street this morning, and this has prevented the snow from settling. Having spent all day Saturday watching snow travelling horizontally past my window I had been wondering where it would end up, logic told me that sooner or later there would be a solid object to stop its path, sorry Hertfordshire but hey someone had to have it.
