Posted by geoff in Fashion.

More fashion tips for you sad little shut-ins. I can only imagine the gratitude on your puckish faces for another exciting and informative post in my widely acclaimed series on fashion.

Today it’s all about fashion accessories, where, as usual, the Japanese have taken the lead into heretofore unexplored territory.

Fffft! Copycat sumbitches. I’ve been thrusting large insects through my various bodily flaps since 1994.

The earrings…..are made in the shape of kabutomushi, or the Japanese rhinoceros beetle, one of the most popular insects in Japan.

Butterflies are all, “ooh, look at me, I’m a butterfly!” Rhinoceros beetles are way more down to earth. You know they got your back in the clutch.

Mmmmm, chicken wing earring…

Sure, that sounds fun, until she pokes 10,000 people’s eyes out.

Wow, I forgot about the porcupine gun. Good times. What thread was that from?

Speaking of throwbacks to old posts, I found this while looking for something unrelated:


As I read through that, I kept asking, out loud, “Holy crap, what the heck is wrong with me?!”

I still miss Emo Pea.

Me, too. I’m super sad I lost that picture. No idea why WordPress lost it.
