Scarves and Iced Coffee with a Side of Islamic Extremist Undertones
In an ad for Dunkin’ Donuts, Ray wore a scarf which is apparently favored by terrorists in the middle east. After a typical American over-reaction, the ad was dropped. As we all know, the terrorists love of iced coffee runs deep. Who knows what kind of stampede this ad could have caused at the local Dunkin’ Donuts.
I would actually like to thank Rachel Ray for her unintended fashion faux pas. I have wanted those scarves to disappear for the longest time and having her wear one, well, she may as well have had a funeral procession behind her to help her lay the trend to rest. She is about 2 years to late and 10 years too old to even attempt to wear that thing.
The thing that annoys me about those scarves is not the supposed undertones of islamic extremism. It’s kind of a stretch to say you’re a terrorist sympathizer if you wear one. What bugs me is that it’s one of those items that people with no sense of style whatsoever throw on in an attempt to spice up their lame outfit.
We’ve all seen those people; tacky T shirt, jeans and running shoes – the very essence of the fashion clueless – but they throw on one of those scarves and think they’re ready to sit on the front row at Paris Fashion Week.
If you hadn’t had enough of every hipster wannabe wearing them for the past three years, when you saw those scarves on sale in the train station for $2.99, that’s a big hint that the trend is running it’s course. But when you see Rachel Ray wearing it? It calls for a coming together anyone who has ever owned one of these scarves, for a mass ceremonial burning.
So thank you Rachel Ray. You have put the final nail in the coffin of this ridiculous trend. Now lets all go and enjoy a muslim extremist symbolism-free iced coffee.
