Puttin' on the Ritz

blockadesantahead Busy day today, so I'm going to turn the fashion criticism over to some other nancy. Take it away, Miss Ritz!


What the--?! Aw, now you've gone too far! Don't give me that look. Listen, little missy, I happen to know for a fact that you've made some pretty tragic fashion decisions yourself. Exhibit A:


In a desperate bid to impress that cute teacher (not that I blame you) you tarted yourself up like a cheap French whore. And that Lilt home perm is out of control. (Or is it a Jheri curl?) Why don't you just marry Jim Baker and get it over with? And now for Exhibit B:


Yeah, I think I saw this look on one of the Olsen twins. And Courtney Love wore this ensemble to a custody hearing. That's mighty poor company, Ritz. So how dare you presume to judge one of the most important cultural icons of the 1970's and 1980's? HOW DARE YOU?!!

Great, now I'm in a saliva-frothing rage. Time to go Christmas shopping!

But you have to admit she's a good dresser.

Aw, she's such a show-off!

Eww. Suddenly Teach has both hands under the desk.

So she went from whore to hippy just like that? I know some women who've done that too.

Kon-El said...

Wait? Your gonna go Christmas shopping to end your rage?

Scipio said...

Yow. Judging by the teacher's appearance, there's more than one Nancy in that panel...

Yeah, it's not anyone who can be outbutched by a little girl with blonde curls (and who looks a bit like a Fisher-Price toy, for that matter).

I think, Kon-El, that BB is implying that he's primed to hurl himself into Christmas shopping, tho' that's just a supposition.

I have little else to say, other than: SLAVE - TO - THE RYTHYM.

Phillip: Cool links! That first one, I think that's a good Night Girl costume right there! It even has a sunhat!

Sleestak: Don't worry; I'm sure he'll be appearing on "Dateline NBC" soon enough.

Jon: Alanis Morissette, for one.

Kon-El: I meant that I was going to go Christmas shopping anyway but I wasn't going to let my blinding wrath keep me from it. Also, I'd fit right in with all the stressed-out maniacs. ("If you have to explain a joke, there is no joke." -- The Joker)

Scipio: "Yow" is right. And fittingly Bushmilleresque!

Chawunky: She does look like a toy, doesn't she! I actually considered just showing the second panel because then it looks like the teacher (whom I've named Mister Mary McPrissypants) has a talking severed head on his desk. Oh, and I like your explanation of my "joke." That one works, too!

The hippie thing actually started in the 60s and ended in the mid 70s. There were no hippies in the 80s, though there may have been a revival in the late 80s and 90s.
Most people would associate hippies with the 60s. Frankly, I don't know how anyone could mistake the new wave era with the hippie era.
I thought I'd point it out, but it was an important part of history.
