Neither Fish nor Fruit, but Definitely Foul

I don’t understand this. Is Blinky hiding behind the pineapple, or did he mutate into a pineapple?

Note the Simpsons characters on the side of the pants and on the sneakers.

There’s No Such Thing As Scotchtoberfest!

Don’t tell her that.

Catch the reference before Fox makes Vine take it down.

Oh the Japanity! Part XIII

The Japanese really need to stop appropriating other cultures.

It wasn’t even close: Gloundskeepuh Wirrie-san (WHAT?) and his longtime companion/master are our Specimens of the Week!

The Truth Is Out There

Mulder: Wait a minute, Scully. What’s the point of this test?
Scully: No point. I just figured he could stand to lose some weight.
Mulder: His jiggling is almost hypnotic.
Scully: Yes. It’s like a lava lamp.
—FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, “The Springfield Files,” The Simpsons

WIth these hypnotically dressed tourists, we open our Theme of the Week: The Inexplicable and Unclassifiable!

Why, if It Isn’t My Old Friend, Mrs. McGreg

With a leg for an arm and an arm for a leg.

These are even worse than swants (sweaters turned into pants). They’re … leg swarmers … or sweg warmers.

We had several notable abusers of socks and leg warmers this week, including Rosie Ragbag, Skinny Who Was Here, and the Jane Cougar Feloncamps. (One could argue that any use of leg warmers outside a dance studio is offensive.) However, for sheer desecration of form, Mrs. McGreg takes the Specimen of the Week Award!

Ugly-Pants Alert! Hey, Hey, Kids!

When I started this clown thing, I thought it would be nothing but glory. You know, the glory of being a clown. I tell you, it’s hard, tiring work. But when I see the smiles on their little faces, I just know they’re getting ready to jab me with something.
—Homie the Clown

Thanks to diligent ugly-pants hunter Phil for the photo.
