A Rebuttal, I Think...

In the post of Tuesday, August 22nd "One From The Bins, Part 753", I made the following assertation when discussing Supergirl's choice of boyfriends:

Secondly, what a bunch of dorky looking dudes! NO ONE I EVER MET IN MY ENTIRE LIFE EVER WORE AN ASCOT. Ascot-wearing is movie and comic book shorthand for "dork". Ascots were NEVER cool. Trust me on this one.

The next day, I received this email from Manager Ken:

Hey! Now wait a cotton-picking minute... I beg to differ:


I'll let you, the readers, decide.

What is an ascots function...or is it...purely for fashion? Does it catch spilt drink or do you wipe your mouth with it? A bet a kid at school at some point wanted a bow tie to fit in with the other kids, but didn't have enough money so his parents gave him a bandana and tied it on to halt his nagging...the he was good looking went to a new school and chicks liked him...and so as the envy of other boys the ascot was born.

Ken, I hope that picture was taking during a time that your parents were still choosing your outfits for you.

If not...
