She Comes in Colors Everywhere

She combs her hair.
She’s like a rainbow.

Beaming with Pride

We postpone the start of our Theme of the Week to wish our LGBT readers a happy Pride!

Beaming with Pride

She’s Not in the Mood to Be Stared At

She said nothing about being photographed. (Scroll down for rear view.)

Her sign is disingenuous: surely she’s dressing like that to be noticed. How could she expect not to be? And if she’s as anti-establishment as her outfit suggests, shouldn’t she be growing her own ingredients and making her own pesto quinoa rather than supporting a massive global company like Aldi, owner of Trader Joe’s?

That sounds good, pesto quinoa. I’ve got to get Secondshade on that. Enjoy the Specimen of the Week. She might be Specimen of the Year; she’s certainly one of the best I’ve ever found. What do you think?

Ugly-Pants Alert! Under the Rainbow

I didn’t know rainbows could shart.

Under the Rainbow

He Puts the Ill in Silmarillion

But Sauron was not of mortal flesh, and though he was robbed now of that shape in which he had wrought so great an evil, so that he could never again appear fair to the eyes of Men, yet his spirit arose out of the deep and passed as a shadow and a black wind over the sea, and came back to Middle-earth and to Mordor that was his home. There he took up again his great Ring in Barad-dûr, and dwelt there, dark and silent, until he wrought himself a new guise, an image of malice and hatred made visible; and the Eye of Sauron the Terrible few could endure.

—J.R.R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion

Ugly-Pants Alert! Vomitorium

“Individually, every element is bad. Together they form a consortium of puke. Why is it that most people who wear muscle shirts have no muscles?”

Good question, Snapper. Thanks for submitting this specimen, who is our Color Abuser of the Week!

Beyond a Reasonable Sprout

Ashley and her awesome sidekick Aidan found this in Sprouts Farmers Market. Any more of this and I’ll renounce my veganism and go stab a cow.

Ugly-Pants Alert! If You’re Going to San Francisco

Be sure to wear some flowers everywhere.

(With apologies to Scott McKenzie.)

Mary Cassatt’s Nightmare put up a good fight, but I have to declare our hippie here the Floral Specimen of the Week. Snapper found her in San Francisco.

If the kids at the Haight in 1967 could have peered through time and seen her, they would have thrown away their pot and tambourines and gone to work for the Nixon campaign.
