Fools Rush In - Bow Wow Wow

Hey, I'm all for queing up for something really cool and fun. . . but no one in this line looked like they were having heaps of fun this morning, standing the in rain. And the line went on. . .

and on . . . .

All for this bag. . . .

My issues with the bag, are this:
A. I heard a funny rumour that the bag is ironically made of plastic fibres.
B. Call me "judgemental" but I would die of shock if I saw a fashionista packing her groceries in that thing. It's a hard thing to remember, but I do bring my own bags to the grocery store. And I don't see a lot of others that aren't:
a. hippies
b. eco- moms
C. That bag really isn't big enough to hold anything substantial. What are you gonna throw in there? A head of lettuce and a bottle of water?

So in conclusion, while I love a good fashion trend, let's just call it what it is, and not hide being some faux eco message. Saving the world, it's not. And if it takes a bag to make people aware, it's a rather sad world we live in, n'est-ce pas?

I'm queing up for this one.
