Indecent Exposure


mfta momentAt this point I am fairly convinced these things are put specifically in my path. Yes, I have been targeted in life, a true MFTA. How else can you explain this one?

I hardly ever go shopping, even more rarely am I in the men’s department of Macy’s. But today, while trying to get some clothes for the boy, we came across this scene. I took a picture of the back first (which was quite funny). But Danny casually walked passed these guys and told me the front was much better, then kept browsing through the racks. Seems the next generation has become accustomed to my need to capture the absurd.

This was surely better for him than the old lady I made him follow through the Bloomie’s women’s department wearing reptile tights, leg warmers and gold metallic Converse. (no Danny was not wearing that, the old woman was!) Sadly I could not get a good enough shot of her and he was not great camouflage for me in the evening dress department.

So back to Mr. No Head With His Pants Down. Of course I had to get a closer look at was was going on under those shirt tails. It seems the poor guy has just a hint of a package, if you will. Kind of like a nub or a turtle type shrinkage sort of apparatus. I guess you would say he was sort of anatomically… castrated.

Take a look for yourself:


This all got me to thinking whether this was intentional or simply a wardrobe malfunction. What do you think?

    So glad I found your site! First I read your blog about the last soccer game…yes, oh do I know: The lawn chairs and cooler still sit in my trunk. I chuckled out loud, thinking my teenagers and I would have done the same at the local department store- snapping pictures at a half naked mannequin! Thank you for the laugh today– through my weariness. Finding your site was like running into an old friend. I will be back to visit and read more!

    This picture would have been complete with another mannequin on her knees. Just sayin! Wow – talk about a malfunction.

    Even if it was a malfunction…it had a purpose. YOU

    What do you mean? It’s the latest fashion trend, being caught with your pants down. They call it “political chic.”

    Btw, you were wrong about the mannequin being headless. Ahem. 😉

  5. Oh I love this! I didn’t know they made male mannequins with bulges? Obviously, I will need to check this out next time I’m at a mall. Who knew?
