“Which one? Ackroyd? Belushi?… Goodman??”

So today is part of a special “customer service” week at my job, and it’s “Favorite Era Day”, where you can dress up in the clothes reflective of your favorite time-period.

“Well,” I think, “this is a good excuse to wear my suit and fedora, give ’em a taste of the golden era of the ’30s and ’40s. This time last year, I wore my fedora by itself into work and got told it was a ‘pimp hat’. Maybe the suit will keep that from happening?” My wife warned me against this, reminding me of the time years ago I dressed as The Crow for Halloween and people thought I was a mime. Pig-headedly, I persevered, ignoring her attempts to keep me from embarrassment.

So, I get all suited up with my lid and suit and trudge into work. And what am I met with? This:

“Blues Brothers!”
“Blues Brothers?”
“Hey, a Blues Brother!”
“Hey, Blues Brother, where’s your sunglasses and harmonica?”

And, my favorite:

“Afternoon, rabbi.”

What, no “Hey, pimp!” this year?

I need a beer.

  1. Yeah. I get the, “Hey, are you Jewish?” thing when I wear my hat.

  2. LOL. That was a new one to me. Usually I just get “pimp hat”.

  3. You should have had a pipe with a tweed jacket…that would have stopped them cold!)
    In fact…everyone should have a pipe. It’s a sign of masculine patience and intellect!
    …which I can say because I have (and enjoy) several.


  4. LOL!

    I actually want to smoke a pipe, but my wife won’t let me for health reasons. Bless her heart.

    We have a deal, though: When I turn 75, if I’m in good health, then I’m gonna start. Hopefully I’ll be around then.
