Rising skirt hems, declining economy. Coincidence?

I think not.

Think about it.

Hemlines went from ankles to calves in the late 20's. The market collapsed and led into the Depression.

In the 40's it went from calves to just below the knees. World War II ensued.

In the 60's it went from just below the knees to above the knee. Vietnam War and serious civil unrest followed.

In the 80's it was a double-dose of bad. Skirts went to mid-thigh and were neon. That led to another market collapse and recession.

Friday night, Rebel and I were at Panda Express and in walked a preteen with a skirt that was barely covering her ass. Seriously. That thing was short.

Brace yourselves. According to the skirts, complete annihilation of the world as we know it is only moments away...


  1. The Mayans knew that sweater dresses were coming!

    I laughed so hard at this. OMG.

  2. Sweater dresses are evil. And wrong. So wrong...
