Yellow Eyeballs

Leandra Medine | December 15, 2012

In which a photo really is worth 1k words.

I found this photo swimming in a photo folder called “Chow n’ Pow” which primarily chronicled my junior year of high school (I wore a lot of oatmeal colored outerwear) and a small bit of my youngest brother loitering around my childhood bedroom in 3-D glasses. I’m not quite sure how or why the above photographed got into Chow n’ Pow but I’m glad I found it because it’s rather magical and begs an important question in compliance with the age old aphorism, “pictures are worth a thousand words.” Which words would you allocate toward this picture?

I’m leaning toward “yellow eyeballs” 500 times or some combination of “rubber bunny ears vs. PETA: is that shit faux?” but I’m also an ass-brain, so, please, impart your hilarity.

    eyes on the prize?
    the eyes have it? (by which I reveal that I’ve clearly inherited my Dad’s punny sense of humour. eesh.)

    I don’t know but what i do know is when i wear things like this it never looks this cool. You can’t just wear these with any old thing. That is ONE sick jacket though!

    Critters…. Am I referring to the eyes? The thing with the ears? The fur? Perhaps the owner of such… Who knows…

  • monkeyshines

  • bellaconsience

    i have a dirty mind i guess…they just look like balls with black spots on them:)))

    That shit is defo not faux, which is why I’m drooling buckets over it. The googly eyeballs are a much needed laidback element to shift away from the heady fact that the coat is real and probably worth some poor girls bi-annual rent, but still, as long as she exhibits a “SMILE”, the heavy weight of being too associated with fashion gets lifted off.

    “graffitied racoon” as my brother recently tried to label my personal style. i know he was trying to insult or offend me, but i actually think it’s a rather amusing description and have thus taken it as a compliment.

    honestly i always enjoy reading your posts because i love some of the phrases you use such as “impart your hilarity” or “ass-brain.” i’ve started writing my own, too, and hope that one day i can match you on your wittiness level (i think it’s a long way to go though, you may see). always inspiring, great job.
