To explain my caption, all I see is a blank frame with the little red x. Anybody know why?

She's wearing her clothes inside out before here time. Remember that "Doc" told Marty (Back to the Future) that kids wear their clothes inside out in 2015.

Years ago, one of my associates had a LARGE sign behind her desk ...

"A Woman's Place is in the kitchen ... as soon as she gets home from work"

She had the sign, but she wasn't laughing about it either

She's not wearing it inside out - look at the shoulder seams. What has happened is that the designer (most likely a man) has not designed a proper edge tot he collar of the t-shirt, and had the label attached to the material edge. Result: the label wants to hang outside. I don't know why, but that always happens with that design of collar; no matter how many times you tuck the danged label back in, it woeks its way out again.

The only solution is to remove it.

"most likely a man" - "but that always happens with that design of collar" - "edge tot he collar" - "woeks" ??????

OMG ....... not ER 2?

Tis a terrible thing when girls secrets get out

"The only solution is to remove it" - meaning millions of men now have no clue as to which is, inside, or back, of most of their clothing.

"nothin' hath furry ....."

... the male designer, knowing the tag would be uncomfortable (forced to use it by unrelenting corporate pressure) used this design to encourage the wearer, most likely female, to remove said tag, thereby increasing the comfort level of the shirt!

DCaD, there is something wrong with the pattern for that polo neck jumper.

I think the pattern has been around for years.........a girl I met up with in Tasmania (I think it is part of Australia), knitted me the same jumper........however it was green (colour only)..........She had about three tries until it looked something like it was supposed to be.

You have to be careful when you talk about Tasmanians............they play the game that all the family can play...........they call it incest!!! Most are born with two heads, but, they cut the second one off at birth......however you can always tell a Tasmanian.........they always have a scar on their shoulder!!!!!

Could possibly be the reason for the strange pattern!!!!!

The one that got away!

This is the "Moses Tasmanian" he got away at birth........hid in the bull rushes????

What can I say????

Another "Only" Tasmanian Devil.......nasty devils too!!!!
