Troubador pants

Troubador pants

This is a guy is wearing troubador pants, a giant maroon hankerchief, and a belt that doesn’t fit. (I snagged this image, by the way, here.) I’m not sure what else he is doing. My guess is that he’s trying to impress someone in a tree with a story he’s telling about how he once caught a fish this big. (If you’d like to see how we got started talking about troubador pants in the first place, go to Coyotes, Nature, Troubador Pants.)

    Hmm…

    Perhaps he's (or she's) a bivocational pastor?

    looks like a serenading pirate wanna-be to me.

    I was going to call it "Why Andrea Bocelli Went Blind." But then didn't, of course. I mean … talk about wrong.

    Plus, is it just me, or does this guy's chest hair start way low on his chest? Does he shave just, like, the upper part? Why?

  • Hjordes Norman

    He shaves because he has a baby (those tiny baby fists rip out chunks of chest hair)… and I think I hear him singing opera.

    Ah. He's breast feeding. That DOES explain the plunging neck line. And the giant burp cloth. And maybe he's practicing his SUPER lullabies.

    Clearly, he's helping his baby learn how to wear diapers.

    his hair looks so soft and silky. (head hair not chest hair)

  • http://www.johnshore.wordpress.com John Shore

    Because he's worth it.

    I'll have you know I AM worth it. Pantene Pro-V and all that.

    I'd say you have an awesome blog, but you keep making fun of me!

    Keep it up. I need that ego deflation once in awhile.

    Cheers.

    No way! Are you really the guy in that picture–or the person who designed the pants? ARE YOU?? I'll die if you are. How great would that be?!

  • http://www.maevesunmentionables.com Tristan el Gitano

    Yes I really am that guy. :D

    My business partner designed the pants.
