Aretha’s New Hat
Oh, Aretha. I love you for your participation in the phenomenon of black women and hat-wearing. However, I can’t help but think that if it’s cold enough to stick your head through a fur muff, it makes no sense to have your ample breasts exposed while doing so. You’re either cold or you’re hot – which is it? Also, there comes a point where fur just makes big folks look like Jim Henson monsters – say Snuffalupagus or Bluto from Labyrinth. Besides, we don’t want the tabloids to pick up on this and start the rumor that you’ve been eaten by a grizzly bear and insist that they have live photos of it, now do we? Just a thought.
I’d also like to add that we as a society need to stop swaddling ourselves. Between this and the Snuggie I can’t help but think it’s time to seek alternative means of comfort.
