Dude, please.

A remarkable simulation of what I saw

A disturbing simulation that I created to show you what I saw. Copyright, me.

Today, on my way to get my morning bagel, I saw a guy walking down the street with one of those greco roman wrestling things on.

I have no words to describe how odd it was.

I skipped the bagel and went back to the office.

Theories? Reassurances that this is not a trend?

    His Lycra bike shorts were in the wash? He’s a member of the outdoor neighborhood wrestling team? Gosh. Sometimes you don’t really need that cup of java to wake you up in the morning.

    You have a way with simulation. I’d have skipped the bagel, too.

    Suddenly, I really want a bagel. I hope you haven’t created some weird synapse in my brain.

    Skipping the bagel was wise. This is the outfit of the future. Soon, all we will be able to purchase will be skin-tight lycra suits. However, as fashion goes, these “mini-suits” will quickly evolve back into regular clothes because they don’t have any pockets. Thank you for the heads up. I’m jumping on this trend early. I don’t like to be left behind.

    Even seen the web site People of Walmart? More and more Americans are throwing fashion caution to the wind and wearing that which makes them feel alive and free. Caring about how you look and wearing traditional garb is like a blinking neon sign that screams, “I’m a boring squarish nerd.”

    It’s time to get with the program.

  6. Those suits are only ever ok if you’re a greco roman wrestler. And you’re wrestling. And indoors.
    I’d have skipped the bagel and the coffee.

    Sometimes these folks are just out there. I had a guy like this at my gym. Frightening.

  8. I uh…I’m uh…well now…

    I got nothin…

    An unpopular opinion: I have the EXACT same reaction when I see anybody in Ren Faire garb. I know it’s popular (you know they’re swinger safe-havens, right?). I have friends that go to them (don’t know if they’re swingers, I’m not that kind of girl). They scare me as much as the wrestling unitard! Just…unless it’s for a play? WHY?

    • omawarisan says:

      I did not know that about Ren Faires. I thought they were just for people with a turkey leg fetish.

      • madtante says:

        I got to know some gals who seemed otherwise fine (a yoga teacher, a lawyer, office workers…) and they were all into Ren faires..well, few years later come to find out they’re all swingers. So, either there’s just a TON of swingers out there or…

        And a guy at work is into ALL manner of freak. They just had Naughty-gras in our area which was some sort of freak fest. He went, of course. He says ren faires are all about swinging. Now, he could be just another freak but if you add up all the people in my acquaintance who a) are freaks and b) are hugely into ren faires and c) are swingers? I don’t get out that much. And I’m *not* a freak/ swinger/ whatever. I swear a lot but I’m a “nice girl.” I’m just saying I perceive a pattern…to each one’s one. It’s just not something for me.

    You’re lucky you don’t have 20/20 vision. Imagine how frightening it would have been if you could see clearly…it could have blinded you. Just think this is a scarey look even if you are a wrestler. I would look for anouther route to get breakfast.

  11. Thypolar says:

    I don’t understand it either. I’ve seen it a few times on the strip. It killed my appetite too.

  12. You might want to find another bagel shop-you don’t want to be running into the guy on a daily basis.

  13. Is the bagel place crowded? Maybe he was trying to conserve space by wearing tight clothing…

  14. A disturbing vision provided by the universe to get you to stop eating bagels.

    • omawarisan says:

      You know I recently realized I can’t stop. It isn’t the bagels, it is the interaction with the people who work there and the regulars. The bagel shop is my work day Cheers.

      Of course, if the universe was up for providing me a vision to get me to stop showing up at work…

  15. Rob G says:

    I hear that wresters are real party animals… Perhaps this guy was just on his way home from a really wild night out.

  16. […] Dude, please.  by | Blurt.  posted a rather disturbing picture today of what he feared would be a new fashion.  On his way for a bagel, he saw a man in a spandex wrestling suit.  […]

  17. Pauline says:

    Ha! That is weird! Last year, I spotted a guy running around in short shorts in the middle of winter. His legs were literally beet red! What goes through some people’s minds, I have no idea!

  18. tsanda says:

    He just wanted you to ask him out…jeeez oma, lighten up… can’t a guy flash you some legs, arms, shoulder and get a little recognition? Somebody above, said that people are throwing fashion to the wind and wearing what makes them feel free or alive or something… and that otherwise you are a squarish nerd. no, that person makes my brain hurt, people who dress like that are idiots and probably on crack, i’ll stick with my naked.

  19. pattypunker says:

    it’s like an elvis or jesus sighting, only it’s jack lalanne.

  20. thejaggedman says:

    Dude, Welcome back. As the wrestling suit goes: I got nothin’.

  21. […] in charge of picking out what the candidates were wearing for the next debate, I would have them dressed for a Greco-Roman wrestling match, including the headgear. No, I don’t want them to wrestle. I do want to see them recover from the feeling that they […]
