You bump into a man on the subway wearing a trenchcoat. You apologize and he responds “Its alright. We’re only human. All of us. All of us here are human. Yep. Very human. I’m probably the most human here! You betcha.” and then the trenchcoat falls and the figure collapses and roughly 1000 salamanders scatter around the train

Doesn’t this already exist?
saviour-machine said: The discussion of the Zara shirt reminded me that I have a bag that says 'broke is the new black'. I'm honestly not sure if this is a racist remark or if it's referring to broke being fashionable, like the colour black for clothing??? What do you think? The fact that I'm not sure is probably a pretty good sign that I shouldn't wear it I guess
I genuinely think they’re trying that ‘pink is the new black’ ie colour trends being more in fashion. But that white is the new black deserves a little side eye because well context but I wouldn’t read too much into it.
I sort of find “broke is the new black” (as in “it’s fashionable to look like you don’t have money”) really meeeh too. Like classist. It’s like rich white people admiring starving people in 3rd world countries for being so skinny?? Or upper and middle class people being so excited about thrift and DIY and the crafty movement - when that has been the way working class/lower class people had to make do for so long. Like, it’s weirdly appropriative. :/
Well, the fashion industry is known for it’s appropriative behaviour: they’ll mock the poor but when they can make money out of something suddenly it becomes ‘the new black’. So yeah, I do agree with you on that.
Clearly the shirt has questionable meaning so that would be enough reason not to wear it, probably, but my interpretation of “broke is the new black” in a fashion context sounds like a joke. Like when people say “I’m not short, I’m fun-sized”… “I’m not broke, I’m fashion”
