A Little Clarification:

Zuddy wants you to know something.

When he wore parachute pants in the 80's?

They looked more like this:



And not so much like this:


He wants you to know that.

Because the top ones are so much more attractive on skinny adolescent rock "stars". And we wouldn't want you to get the wrong impression.

And I would like you to see this old Craig's list ad that I found through Google when I searched "M C Hammer":



Guess what,
I was cleaning out my closet and I found 47 pairs of BRIGHT NEON MC Hammer pants. I was going to burn them and dance around the flames to try to make it rain or something, but I thought that maybe somebody would want these. They are absolutely the worst pants of all time. I can't remember being stupid enough to buy these, but I must have been. Either that or MC Hammer owes me a bunch of rent money. I have them all in a huge garbage sack sitting on the sidewalk. If you want them you must just come pick up the bag and drive away. If anybody comes up and tears the bag and spills those hideous things into the street where my neighbors can see, I will be very unhappy. Garbage collection is on Monday so if they aren't gone Mr. BFI gets them. If you want this garbage, email me and I will give you instructions.
Note: all of my photos were found through Google
Oh! And Guess what? I start my new job today! Yay new job, Yay!

That's just hot, girlfriend. And do you remember "muscle pants" with the velcro on the front, in all those awful prints like paint splashes?!! I actually saw a dad wearing those the other day. :-0

Da Da DA DA DA DA Can't Touch this! Hamma! Hamma! My My My music hits me so hard- makes me say Oh MY LORD..... thank you for giving me a mind to rhyme and a too hype beat...

Ahem... well - I must admit that I watched Dance Party USA wearing my HAMMA pants. Yes- the pants from the second photo. They were cream - I I could dance like no other in them. I was a teenager. I made my little brother watch. He is probably scarred.

Do you still like me?

Yea for starting a new job! Hope you love it!

Yeah for the new job! Are you going to tell us about it?

Zubaz are the worst, the absolute worst! We saw a news story a while back that they were making a come back. I thought NO WAY! My bf worked out at a gym at Roseville, the guy that owned it was the inventor of Zubaz, I think he still wears them.

A parachute pant is a parachute pant.

You should tell Zuddy that his "clarification" doesn't help matters all that much. LOL.

Penny said...

My high school crush wore parachute pants too (not Hammer pants)! We called 'em flight pants here. Did Zuddy wear his with a mesh half shirt like TJ did? ROFLMBO!!

MARTHA, IT'S DUDE, NEPHEW OF ZUD. Oops, sorry. I mean, it's Dude, nephew of Zud. I just wanted to say that I, too, wore parachute pants. But in the mid 90s thanks to the movie Trainspotting. I don't think those zippered pockets were functional. I wonder where I kept my keys...

Martha said...

Heather,

Oh YEAH. Zubaz. My fashionable/tortured middle child brother had an array of those babies :)

Sarah!! I think I love you even more now!

Jilly - I think I saw a blurb about the Zubaz, too, but it was a 10pm news story and I'm FAST asleep at that insanely late hour (Heh).

HB and Janelle: Ssshhhh......Don't upset the Zuddy.....

Kris (Dude) Yeah. All you can wear in those babies is a SMILE :)

You all make my day!

Martha said...

Penny -

I forgot to tell you. I'm SURE Zuddy had a top like that. He HAD to have had one!! What else is a guy supposed to wear with those pants?

Oh, I loved my Hammer...put him on and I'm up on the dance floor...a rather amusing sight, I might add...

Yeah, loved him, but his clothes...zippo sex appeal!! Maybe that was the reason for his fall from fame...
