    On the way to lunch on Monday I ran into these two. They were doing an amateur "Candid Camera" stunt using a trick rubber tongue thing. The were telling passers-by that their tongues were stuck together by a piercing.

    I stopped and looked. While I was studying their tongues to see if I could help, they did their stunt, and started pulling on their tongues, which got all stretched out, and then came off on one side, and they started screaming.

    I ruined their act, as I simply stood there without any reaction at all. There must be some sort of Valentine FU in all this beyond my Glen Plaid tweed jacket.

    Brooks Brothers tweed jacket, blue OCBD, and cotton sweater vest, Hardy Amies tie, Thomas Pink pocket square, Land's End trousers, and Allen Edmonds shoes.

    Well put. While not a head turner here, that jacket I posted always elicits comments.

    I just imagine him as life's straightman in a world of comedians, but without whom nothing would be funny... weird things just seem to happen around him while he stays effortlessly deadpan.

    No question this is FU - is the tie rule being relaxed?

    Couldn't ask for a better time for my first post. The color palatte may be a little muted, but I'd say this counts as an "FU" jacket:

    Well, to be honest I forgot about that rule but I'd really prefer if everyone thought I was simply saying FU to rules. Dancing my way to the bench for the disqualified.
