Default There's good news and there's bad news

The good news is that i got a follow up job interview tomorrow. I've been laid off for 3 weeks now..and this new company sounds very promising.


The bad news is that i'm going to a White Trash themed party on Saturday night, and i had spent the last 2 weeks of joblessness growing a kickass trailer-park-style mustache and collecting my costume for the weekend.

I will shave for this interview, so all my work was for naught.

But i did take a picture for you guys before it goes....

Duuuuuuuude! A mullet and a wife-beater will complete the effect. Make sure the wife-beater is either white with stains or if it's got a logo, that it's some really awful heavy-metal band.

Default wife beater?

I am well aware of Psycho-Social ramifications of the mullet hair style ..... but what might be a wife beater, and is there cultural counterpoint "husband beater"?

Magnetmaz,

The outfit pictured is tres chic for those formal social gatherings, such as a soirée for installation of obsolete conveyances upon cinder blocks!

A wife-beater is one of a group of styles of sleeveless t-shirts, so beloved of the Caucasian stars of "Cops."

If there's a husband-beater (haven't heard of one, but...), it would either be a muu-muu or a tube-top (accompanied by fat rolls and gaudy-but-crude tatoos).

You guys are both up on your trailer park styles....

i was going for the tough-guy-trucker/hunter who drives an '82 camarro look who will kick yer *** for looking at me wrong when i'm drinkin at the local watering hole...

but the stay-at-home-drunken-father-in-a-wifebeater-watchin jenny jones in the double wide is another type....

and so is the washed-up-80's-glam-rock-mullet-king

I think a mullet in any situation White-trashifies just about whoever is wearing it.


gracias for the suggestions

So Maz, you were the guy flying out of the bar parking lot sideways, cutting me off and flipping me the bird. I thought I recognized you. Hey, nice Camaro.

Hey now! Stop talking about all my friends! J/K... seriously though, you have to come to eastern Ohio/western PA sometime. It's still 1985 here for the majority. You would fit right in with my neighbors. Gitfiddles, cadillacs, and hillbilly music! YEE HAW!

proud of his redneck ancestry... and my family is from two different parts of West Virginia, so inbreeding was kept to a minimum.

I'm from Ohio as well...

My family owns about 5 lakehouses out in the Geneva/Ashtabula area...and i'm from Cleveland originally.


As far as i'm concerned, though....Columbus, Ohio is the mason/dixon line... anything south of there, and you might as well be watchin Hee-Haw

You should start doing some research on this very serious matter. I would recommend reading this page for some deeply moving insights into this social phenomenon.
