The following is a public service announcement brought to you by Phnx65:
No, no, no, no, no. NO!
Please, people. Especially men. Especially male TOURISTS in DC who are here from wherever you live, and because it's vacation time, you think all rules don't apply. Wait - even more especially, the WIVES of the TOURISTS in DC who let their husbands go out like this, because they're on vacation and they think the rules don't apply.
Some rules still do.
Please stop going out in public like this.
You cause car accidents. People on street corners walk in front of traffic, because they are so busy laughing at you. The driver screeches to a halt, in an effort to spare the laughing pedestrian, but as they stop, they are hit from behind.
It is very hard to explain to a police officer that you saw two cars get totaled, and one pedestrian almost have a heart attack, because the poor pedestrian was blinded by the God-awful fashion non-sense of a dork like you, in your black sandals and white socks. You are a safety hazard, not just a fashion hazard. I, a citizen of this great land, beg you to stop the maddness.
Thank you. We now return to regularly scheduled programming.
