Stuff I Don’t Get

CelebritiesI don’t understand the world of fashion. This photo spread from Italian Vogue makes no sense to me. What do cops manhandling models have to do with fashion? Is riot gear and underwear the new fashion paradigm? If so, I need to go shopping because I’m dangerously low on one of the two… I’ll let you guess which…

Why would you kill a stingray in retaliation for the death of Steve Irwin? This has The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou (yep, I’m the guy that saw it) written all over it.

Steve Zissou: I’m going to find it and I’m going to destroy it. Possibly with dynamite.
Festival Director: That’s an endangered species at best. What would be the scientific purpose of killing it?
Steve Zissou: Revenge… Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go on an overnight drunk, and in 10 days I’m going to set out to find the shark that ate my friend and destroy it. Anyone who wants to tag along is more than welcome…

Somehow I suspect the concept of a revenge killing is lost on stingrays. Chances are they don’t even know the ray that whacked Irwin, but even if they did, if you start killing their friends indiscriminately, then the bad guys have won.

Finally, what is the world coming to when Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and their Asian baby attending a football game qualifies as news?
