A new species discovered
They are referred to as “homo slackass-erectus” created by natural genetic downward evolution through constant spineless posturing, and spasmodic upper limb gestures, which new research has shown to cause shorter legs and an inability to ambulate other than in an awkward shuffling gait.
The "drag-crotch" shape also seems to effect brain function. Expect no eye contact or intelligent verbal communication. History shows that this species mostly voted for Obama and receives food stamps and full government care. Unfortunately most are highly fertile.
In my part of the world, he's endangered!!
That is a GOOD thing Bigpizzaman! I've noticed the "Expect no eye contact or intelligent verbal communication." when I have to go to a City. Something about a "man" who won't look you in the eyes, or acknowledge a simple good morning or hello ... just look down at their feet.
Reminds me of the joke.
How do you tell the difference between an accountant and an actuary?
The accountant will stare at your feet....
They should be endangered .....Jeff
There's an added societal interaction here in HI....
They lift up the front of their shirt, stick both hands under it and roll them around and tug and twist on the shirt while looking at the ground.
In many cases also add in feet spread apart (well, as far as they can get with those tiny short legs.... or possibly your pants/shorts down around your knees...) and you shift your weight from foot to foot swaying back and forth....
Kind of amazing really.... almost like chewing gum and walking at the same time....
"In my part of the world, he's endangered!!"
What's endangering them in your part of the world?
Whatever it is, want to start doing it here!
don't see too many of them in my neck of the woods either and just fine with me.
I am in Los Angeles working this week...lots of these critters here....thinking they may have (dare I say it) evolved in S. California.
That style has all but disappeared around me, too. However, if I see another wiry slacker in skinny jeans do a "Beiber flip" in my presence, I just may snap.
What happened to masculinity? Or shaped hat brims for that matter?
"devolving" I believe would be the correct term....
Yeah Owl the Beiber thing is catching on here. Also some Parishes and Cities banned "Baggy Pants". I also firmly believe they were much eaiser to "Catch" when a crime was committed, ever see one try to run in those!
