No, the bluesy bit isn't that they look ridiculous. Actually, that is not a bug, that's a feature - it's Halloween!
And I understand that the fact that I can actually find these things after lo these decades lapsed might merit a bit of self-examination - what do I value, what do I cling to, why can't I Just Let Go?
But we don't have time for deep thoughts - the unexamined life may not be worth living, but the fully examined day will never be completed.
No, our issue is much broader - how did I ever, ever fit into these things, and where is my card to the YMCA?
