"But when I noticed the guy in the orange shirt, my weekend was made."

I feel guilty. I'm sorry. But I laughed hysterically at this Sorry I Missed Your Party post. And then there is this one, which I find terribly sad.

I take it people are laughing at the guy in the orange shirt because he's bald, which is a permanent condition outside of his control.

Wearing a shirt to the pool is not a permanent condition, will probably save the kid a future melanoma, and if it's because he's overweight, at least he can do something about that.

Me, I want to know what's up with the guy in the orange skin grabbing boobage.

He could shave off the rest of his hair. Being completely bald is just as sexy as a full head of hair. Half way bald is another matter all together.

The first pic made me think 'Larry Fine is at that kids party!' The second pic made me think that kid with the shirt is more concerned with unintended blood flow [ahem] than the damn shirt!

Guilty? Come on. Embrace your undeniable sense of superiority!

I once knew a lady who typed with her teeth.

It's kind of weird to think of Althouse spending her spare time looking at people she doesn't know and judging them.

What if someone finds the kid in the second picture and tells him his appearance almost brings grown women to tears?

"Just do the world a favor and stay inside... forever."

One reason I didn't got to bars with lots of younger women when I was single was that I figured I would look something like the Orange Shirt Guy. There are places where older adults just should not go.

Speaking of parties, today is my birthday.

I am sorry but I laughed too. I think it is the smile. Also the foam is so 90's.

Lem said...

That was not very nice Althouse.

Everybody knows “you never go full retard” ;)

Freeman Hunt said...

I don't understand the inclusion of foam at a party. Seems like a giant mess and nothing more.

Maxine, you could type with your teeth if ever there was a time your foot wasn't in your mouth.

Ann Althouse said...

@Lem I said I was sorry!

LordSomber said...

I think the guy with the orange skin is just as creepy...

John Stodder said...

In the picture of the swimmers, doesn't the girl in the center remind you of a juvenile version of Althouse's ultimate bete noire, Jessica Valenti? Same pose! Maybe it's her!

TitusLaughedToo said...

I think foam parties are supposed to be kind of erotic?

I don't think of them as that. More neurotic.
