Wish I had thought of it #157

Who would have thought if you designed a jacket to make people look like Michelin Man, that you would make a world wide financial killing.



But then who had the bright idea to invent a telephone that you carry around all with you all the time.

  2. That looks similar to the jacket I'm planning to buy next winter, but being a short, round woman I'll probably look even more like a Michelin man!
    I still like my big old ski jacket with large patch pockets that hold everything, but the filling is beginning to break down and get patchy after 25 years of wear.

    1. River, the jackets look like they would be too hot for me. You have had your moneys worth out of the old jacket, for sure.

    2. Sure have; it was a bargain at $25.

    1. EC, it is interesting to read the original quote which I have seen before. Now which female singer in early or mid 20 century said about the audiences, "Give 'em muck".
