animal wear revisited



The Owl and the Pussy-Cat



The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat
,

 They took some honey, and plenty of money,
   Wrapped up in a five-pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
   And sang to a small guitar,
"O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love,
 What a beautiful Pussy you are,
      You are,
         You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!"

Pussy said to the Owl, "You elegant fowl!
   How charmingly sweet you sing!
O let us be married! too long we have tarried:
   But what shall we do for a ring?"
They sailed away, for a year and a day,
   To the land where the Bong-Tree grows
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
   With a ring at the end of his nose,
             His nose,
             His nose,
   With a ring at the end of his nose.
"Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
   Your ring?" Said the Piggy, "I will."
So they took it away, and were married next day
 By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
   Which they ate with a runcible spoon;   
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
   They danced by the light of the moon,
             The moon,
             The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.


 The subject of Henwear and related articles of clothing is now closed.

Or so I thought, but then I clicked on something in my Inbox and found this:
This is a sweatshirt, by Proenza Schouler. A sweatshirt. It is on sale now for $1500 at Bergdorf Goodman and at La Garconne. Go look for yourselves if you don't believe me. What the hell, it's only disposable fashion. With a bird on it.

  1. Seeing all of the animals on those t-shirts is enough to make me not want any animal of any kind on any article of clothing! And then to read to the bottom and see that sweatshirt...that is ridiculous! Thank you so much for sharing. All of you bloggers are really helping me save my money at this point.

  2. OMG, you found me a cat in a beret smoking a cigarette! (The cigarette makes it much more age appropriate!)

    And perhaps the JC peacock necklace would complement the Proenza Schouler?

  3. But perhaps this chat should be saying "Miaou" instead of "Meow"?

    1. I think you can customize it, actually. Allez-y!

  4. Hi, anon, you mean you don't think getting 2 birds on a shirt instead of one is a great buy?

  5. well this heartens me for my line of Quahog tshirts, coming to a hunting and fishing camp near you, for the fall. I believe this puts me at the far left of your grid of last evening Fred? I am pretty sure I have cornered that market.

    2. Have I ever mentioned that I am a procastinator? I keep meaning to tell you that...

  6. So your telling me those who wear embroidered sweatshirts commemorating all holidays- religious and Hallmark-based- are channeling (or "chanel"ing) haute couture? Proenza Schouler for Wal-Mart?

    1. Well, after all, there are two birds, not one.

  8. Sitting out the animal trend up here. Tacky to wear hens when you own 4, I feel. Sweatshirt-- a bird in the hand is worth 2 on the sweatshirt? Nevermind... criminal.

    1. C'mon, Lane, you eat the eggs, you may eat the fowl, if you ever decide to distribute this delicious bounty on a grander scale, you may be glad to have an overpriced pilly sweater with a cute logo.
      Or not. Probably not. Sorry.

  9. Oh my L0rd in heaven that is ridiculous! The two birds made me think "drooping boobs" and I am now stuck with this weird expression on my face, as if someone farted in a stalled elevator. I will be sure to avoid this trend at all costs.

    1. So I'm not the only one who thought "saggy boobs" when I saw that hideous sweatshirt...

    2. xoxo, you're stuck with the weird expression? Does that mean my mom was right when she warned me that my face could "freeze that way"? Awful thought.

    3. Jeanne, I'm sure that was the kindest thing many of us thought.

    4. I am soooo glad others thought about saggy boobs as well! I just wasn't brave enough to mention it in my earlier comment.

    5. Once I see something I have difficulty getting it out my head so the face stayed on for a while, and now it's back. LOL

  10. I think I'd rather wear the classic "Three Wolf Moon" sweatshirt that you can buy at any WV Walmart than wear that crap-tastic over-priced peacock sweatshirt...which is depressing since I love peacocks and refuse to shop at Walmart.

  11. Oh, Whitney, I am sure JC will make a perky peacock when they see how the hen is flying out the doors.

As Alice Roosevelt Longworth said, if you've got anything bad to say, sit next to me! No, really, please remember to be kind, and don't say anything fred's mother would not approve of (Diner's mom didn't approve of anything. Including fred.)
