Jay and I were at one of the Loop platforms waiting to get on the train to Hipsterville for Chinese food yesterday when I saw a phenomenon which drives me up the wall and just leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth. It's the phenomenon known as "douche-baggery". Now, douche-baggery comes in many shapes and forms but the one I absolutely detest is when guys flip up the collars on their polo shirts, which isn't that big a deal in itself but when combined with greasy spiky hair, a tan and "bling", they have just qualified themselves to be called douche-bags. Like, what the fuck is that? Firstly, that whole popping-the-collar-on-your-polo shit is sooooo early 2000's and secondly, if you need half a tub of Brylcreem to spike up a half inch of hair, then dude, you really are a douche-bag. Case in point:
I don't normally like to criticize members of my beloved Manchester United, but I have never liked Cristiano Ronaldo (aka Euro-Greasy, as he is fondly known as in TMZ circles) ever since the whole bawling like a spoiled brat episode at the World Cup, but also his flashiness disturbs me. Those of you who don't follow European football, just take my word for it.
And this shit right here? Unacceptable. The popped collars and the poses just scream douche-bags!!
