The whole Boston jacket thing (Read 1772 times)

    Oh, uh, there won't be any money.  But when you die, on your death bed, you will receive total consciousness.

      Imminent Catastrophe

        Whenever I see someone wearing the Boston jacket I like to say, "Oh, charity entry, huh?" and watch the reaction. It's always entertaining.

            Whoa.  Um, that previous post should not have occurred.

             

            There is nothing to see here.  Nothing at all.

                  It's Nemo's fault, actually. He posted a link intended to focus on a post, but actually the link was to a reply page.

                      Yeah, but the thing is, I dunno what I hit that caused it to post.  I accept it was a User Error, but I didn't do the obvious thing that would have caused it to go sploosh.

                        That's actually part of the weirdness.  It posted a quote from Nemo... but it would not let me add text below the quote.  Not even an "oops I'm sorry".  I could diddle with the text in the quote box, but I couldn't do anything else.

                         

                        But for the record:

                         

                        >> I'm totally coming to maine and wearing that fucker everywhere.

                         

                        Ok.

                          Is this rule only about Boston jackets, or are other shirts/jackets taboo too? I always followed the concert t-shirt rule - you can't wear the shirt of the band you're listening to.

                            Ok.

                             Yeah, I figured. I am relieved that you have not been struck dead by the Internet Gods. BTW I recently saw bhearn wearing a Boston jacket and I absolutely knew it was not a charity entry. 

                            And by the way, after April 15, 2013, assuming all goes well, I will be wearing that fucker everywhere as well. Hey RWOL refugees, I can write "fucker" and it won't be censored!

                              You mean besides "don't wear the race shirt in that day's race".  That specific comet has/had a fairly rapid return rate on RWOL.
