Today, for no particular reason, is What The Fuck Friday.
Here’s the first WTF:
I mean WTF? I am pretty sure there is some historical trickster who designed these for a laugh. They appear neither functional or comfortable or even handsome; just very, very silly. The hats are called Bearskins, for the simple reason that each hat is made at vast expense from a whole Canadian bear pelt (the ones that are culled for over population reasons).
They were originally worn by grenadier soldiers (soldiers with grenades) and now have a ceremonial function (I can see why – “But I can’t see where I’m throwing the grenade!”). The Queen’s Guard (the ones that Christopher Robin and other members of the public can see changing at Buckingham Palace) are the best known
suckers Bearskin wearers.
Sometimes tradition has a lot to answer for.
Here’s another traditional WTF:
And a WTF food fad:
We’ve all had a bit of a WTF moment over the whole food foam fad – if you haven’t heard of it, think mustard foam with your meat instead of normal mustard. Personally the foam thing reminds me of those foamy yellow vomits our dog has done a couple of times. I’d sooner eat a snotty old oyster before I go the foam. Well how ’bout oysters and foam?
And Another Food related WTF:
Serving suggestions – anyone else think they’re a little condescending?
And a final, more general, WTeffingF
Meet the pair (not a couple, in fact they allegedly hate each other) who had a shit load of plastic surgery and “bodymods” to look like Ken and Barbie:
Maybe it’s freaky Friday. Whatever, it’s Friday, and that means YAY! Have a lovely weekend. x
