We understand.

(Thanks to Lane Closure)

NOTE: We realize this makes no sense, now, but then again, did it ever? We're blogging. Blogging like the wind!

I have nothing to say except......"wow". It really does take all kinds to spin this ball of dirt doesn't it?

Sorry to be nuisance. My computer is being screwy

Well, how many people are so excited about their job that they start a web site about it? (Apart from judi & Dave, that is.). I'm a sign maker and I get really excited about new knives. Maybe I'll start a web site about exacto knives, and rotary knives, and 6-in-1 tools, and...maybe not.

As a Norwegian reader, I was amused to see that the author seems to be located in the Netherlands?

He has over 300 different uniforms, but only 1 mannequin. Seems to me like he just wanted to be a mannequin dresser for Macy's.

then again, it's safer than a knife obsession

surfbunny, what color is the sky in your world?

mea culpa, trondos. mea maxima culpa.

Ha Ha Ha! That was better than knives any day!

MOTW - blue, with a slight layer of cirrus clouds, why? : )

Norway, the Netherlands... it's all in Africa, eh? :-P

that's actually pretty cool. It's more challenging than collecting stamps, that's for sure. That chap whould be commended for his dedication.

Key Quote: "One day, I hope to have my own museum. Another dream that will come true? Who knows?"

We do!

i'm guessing he's just a happy and gay little camper. so he collects stew uniforms. so? implying that he might WEAR them, what? so he has an unusal hobby. floats his boat. i have to go home and check on my shoelace collection.

On the whole, I'd rather be in Norway . . .

ps: Does this post make me look fat?

I'm now convinced that all stewardess uniforms (except maybe Crossair/Switserland) are designed by whoever designs the uniforms for female on spaceship crew cast members for every sci fi-space movie/tv show ever made, especially StarTrek and Forbidden Planet. And maybe for some diner waitresses, too. Is there a school of design for this type of fashion? No matter what year it is, they always look retro.

By the way, how come steward uniforms never look so retro/geeky?

Okay, every body just knew this was a guy before clicking on his picture, right?

meg, you said it (three times). Cliffie needs a life, or a beer.

Mud: his name WAS Cliff and he did say "When I was a small boy" so I took that as pretty strong hints, yeah.

Dang it, if I could have just copied and pasted the link instead of watching it again, I would have beaten Tetsu...but they're just so darn adorable.

and watching Kenya pee on Norway is much more amusing in real life.

Ok...so can any of you tell me where to find the Powerbar "Great!" fake commercial? I can't find it anywhere.

Surfbunny - see my comment on the first Norway post of the day...


Bismuth - that's what made me think of Kenya!

surfbunny: We need details here. Explain the basic premise of the commerical?

The Norway topic DID make me think, "forget norway."

Interesting how deciding who should be sent a link to the Kenya video immediately sorts one's friends into "weird" and "not weird enough."

On the actual topic, I share surfbunny's observation about the one mannequin. I wonder how much time this guy spends undressing his lone mannequin. Maybe THAT is his real hobby.

Actually, I think this website does highlight the important issue of crappy stewardess uniforms. Look at the 60s ones, they were cool, in fact downright sexy. The new ones all look like something your grandmother might have worn if she had no sense of style. And why do they all have those stupid cravats??

It's Peter Pan!! That's him without hair!! Can't you see it?!

Not one but TWO Mohawk Airlines uniforms! Mohawk flew out of my county here in upstate NY. (And never came back.) I flew on one of their planes once back in the late 60s--it was like something out of Casablanca. This is just too creepy. I don't know what's odder--that someone one save TWO Mohawk uniforms--or that someone would BUY them (on eBay, presumably).

Joshkr asks:
"Does anyone else giggle a little and say "Aer Lingus"?"
Ah! I feel better knowing it's not just me.
I would also like to say that this is one of those threads that reminds me just how many funny people come here to comment. You people rock.

I definitely think we should arrange for this guy to meet Peter!

There once was a boy from lands-Nether
Who threw a smart outfit together
To dress like a “stew”
Was his dream but who knew
If the boots were vinyl or real leather

Paige Turner is the name of the librarian on the Arthur show on PBS.

What about this site. www.jetPSA.com Check out those flight attendant uniforms. I want THOSE to come back on my flights!!!
