WTF??

Today, for no particular reason, is What The Fuck Friday.

Here’s the first WTF:

bearskin

If I wasn’t wearing a beaver on my head and a gold braid smiley face, this gun would make me look so tough.

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: 

Judges-mark-start-of-lega-007

Please don’t judge me.

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?

No this isn't a rabid oyster, it's an oyster served with cucumber foam.

No this isn’t a rabid oyster, it’s an oyster served with cucumber foam. Eeeeeek!

And Another Food related WTF:

Serving suggestions – anyone else think they’re a little condescending?

Hey how about you serve your chicken soup, wait for it, in a bowl! Genius.

Instead of serving your icing on a cake or something, we suggest you just serve it up on a knife.

I'm going to serve my sour cream and chili crackers with a bowl of sour cream, some sweet chili sauce and oh what the heck, a bunch of chilies. Anyone for a chili?

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:

ken and barbie

Barbie you know I can’t bend at the elbows.

Maybe it’s freaky Friday. Whatever, it’s Friday, and that means YAY! Have a lovely weekend. x
