When in the course of human events friends disagree, sometimes it becomes necessary to take the dispute public to prove once and for all who is right. Friends, readers, members of the jury - please consider the arguments carefully and cast your vote. What is Kim Jong-Il wearing?
To assist you in your decision, you will be provided with the conversation that started the debate and then a brief closing statement from both Falwless and myself. When you have reached a conclusion (shirt), please vote in the sidebar poll.
me: Someone has a crush on Kim Jong Il? Hmmm?
me: It's the glasses, isn't it?
Falwless: Yes. And the fancy taupe jacket and high heel shoes.
me: I don't know if I've ever seen him wear a jacket. Maybe he does only for you.
Falwless: He always wears a jacket! Always taupe! lemme find a pic
me: he wears like those military shirts with the shoulder things.
Falwless: Isn't it, like, a jacket, though? I know it's military style but I thought it was a jacket, not a shirt. I dunno lemme go google image search. because this is very important to me
me: At 2am on a Friday, it's the most important thing in your life.
Falwless: It is! http://findmeazombie.com/Pages/Shoulda%20been%20a%20zombie/Images/Kim%20jong%20il.jpg
me: That's like a jac-shirt.
Falwless: Clearly a jacket, not a shirt, dude. No way, you can't slink outta that. It has a zipper. That shit's a jacket.
me: Okay, but would you wear a normal shirt under it or just a t shirt? I say just a t shirt. And that makes it a shirt, not a jacket.
me: This is so a post.
Falwless: Someone's gotta fucking pubLISH THIS AS A POST MY GOD
Falwless: GET OUT OF MY HEAD
me: We should do that for real.
me: Post the picture and offer arguments.
Falwless: Let's do it.
me: And ask for votes.
Falwless: that's actually a great idea
me: I know!
Falwless: it should go on your blog
me: I was going to say yours. That way someone will read it.
Closing Statement From Falwless:
In closing, Kim Jong Il clearly wears a jacket. It has elastic around the waistband, for chrissakes, and a zipper running down the entire length of the front. Even though he keeps it zipped and regardless of what is kosher to "wear underneath," this terribly tight taupe tapestry is, in the end, nothing less than an ugly jacket.
Closing Statement From Words Words Words:
Ladies and gentlemen, do not be swayed by buzzwords like "elastic", "zipper" and "length". As Fal herself points out, the garment is tight. So tight that one could not (and would not) wear a collared or buttoned shirt under it. Only a t-shirt is appropriate. A jacket is an OUTERGARMENT. If one cannot fit a regular garment under it, it cannot be an outergarment. A careful examination of the evidence supports only one conclusion - Kim Jong-Il is wearing a shirt. God bless you all, and God bless America.
