I saw an old guy on the train with dangling crucifix earrings.

He looked like Mr. Rodgers with earrings on. He even had a cardigan sweater on.

I'm sorry but the guy looked like an idiot. He looked about as bad-ass as barney the dinosaur.

I hate FADS. A fad is proof that people have no self esteem and no character.

"Is everyone wearing a rotting road kill animal on their head? OK, I will too! I must fit in, or I'll die!!"

I guess that's why all the cutting edge trendy assholes are mutilating themselves. Regular piercing and tatoos don't draw enough attention for them since everyone's grandma is getting inked up & pierced.


IMHO

Could it have been a woman?

I've definitely thought the same thing about an old guy wearing earrings and it turned out it wasn't a dude.

I didn't ask, she walked into the ladies room.

Maybe he was a retired pirate ?

And just how is it that you know he has not had them for 20+ years?

I got my ear pierced in 1979. A fad? No, more like rebellion back then.

Left or right ear? It's important to know what type of pirate he was.

Maybe you should have started some trouble with him. He was probably thinking the same thing about you.

Yes, a normal hetrosexual man will only have the left one pierced (that is of couse by my old-fogey standards or yore). A right piercing definitely meant, you know, nudge nudge wink wink.

However, it is still in US Navy regulations that if your are the sole survivor of a sunken ship, you are authorized to wear a single gold earring in your right ear. So....


Arrrrr!!! Hoist up the Jolly Rogers matie, set sail for the rum spice islands....arrrrrrr!!

Yep , but no funnier than the 50 something, pudgey balding dudes with a pony tail generally outfitted with harley shirt, harley pants,harley boots, harley belt buckle and tiny little v-twin ear ring driving a mini van at the IHOP.

You may keep the earring but only if you are a legitimate hard core rebel badass, punch out state troopers, beat up old people for their social security checks, etc.

Everyone else (the wannabees) turn them in.

i know a woman who bought an SUV because she said that minivans were too "suburbia".

Like a focking SUV isn't the most cornball suburban thing in the world.

You could sell a handful of runny, mushy dogshit to the consumer if you can convince them that it's "cool".

A $60,000 truck with leather seats and a crappy 4wd system being sold to suburban status seeking women so they can bring 20 lbs of groceries from the A&P. Who would have ever dreamed it?

The father of a good friend of mine passed away about two months ago. He was 83. He wore two earrings and long hair in a ponytail. He was a retired railroader, and about as much of a hippie as Ronald Reagan.

Yep. They're the reason for the "RR Crossing" signs. They're supposed to be pronounced "Arrrrrrr Crossing."
