Calling Cards of Morons


Recommended Posts

Doing things solely for the point of annoying others.
Hence why I've not got said tattoo, it would be funny to get religious fruit loops all excited but not at the expense of a tattoo.

He didb't take too kindly to me saying 'you do realise god doesn't exist?'

See also cross tattoos and such like. A cross is a religious symbol and I know a few folk who have them that have absolutely no affinity to religion. A ridiculous fashion statement. Fannies.

Leviticus 19:28; “You shall not make gashes in your flesh for the dead, or incise any marks on yourselves.”

Or just mention Leviticus 19:28, which says, ”You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you: I am the Lord.”

No idea if it's true for all of them, but at least some Jewish cemeteries won't accept bodies that are tattooed. One of the wife's cousins got himself tattooed for this exact reason (the lad had issues, to say the least).

Adds another horrible dimension to what was done during the Holocaust.

Also probably not a very welcone sight to someone whose son/personification/earthly manifestation was nailed to one to suffocate under his own body weight over a few days. 

I'm sure Bill Hicks did a skit about if Jesus came back and saw all these people wearing crosses it would be like JFK returning from the dead and seeing people wearing little rifles on a chain around their neck

On a similar note, I very much imagine this has come up in this thread before, but people who were a football top to go on holiday are absolute imbeciles.

EDIT: or to go to social events, a court appearance, etc.

 

Football shirts are bad enough but wearing a kilt on holiday is the epitome of moronic desperation, particularly if it is coupled with an expectation that Johnny Foreigner is supposed to give them a reacharound because they're not English.

It’s even more moronic when it’s something like a fucking Carlisle United or a Barnsley shirt who Johnny Foreigner will never have even head of.

Very true, but my point was aimed more at Scottish people who go abroad and then expect a biscuit when they tell somebody that they're not English.

Never understand this view. It seems quite a popular one on PnB that grown men buying football jerseys is just wrong. A particularly bizarre view given it's smaller side fans who think this way. Ask your clubs what they think of this view and I'd guess they totally disagree. For wee sides like ours selling replica shirts will be a big slice of income. I try and buy a jersey each season even if I rarely wear it.

As for wearing football tops abroad, I absolutely love seeing folk wearing tops that aren't the usual suspects - OF, Man Utd, Liverpool et al. Love seeing someone wearing a lower league Scottish football team top and it usually draws me in to have a conversation with them as I know we could discuss football at a decent level not the usual "You're a Queens fan? Queens are shite!" type nonsense that you tend to get from OF fans.

And on the flipside my judgemental instinct kicks in if I see an OF jersey abroad and tend to sway away from folk wearing them.

Fitba taps abroad - I'm all for it.

It's undeniably handy that certain football teams fans tend to reveal themselves from a sufficient distance as to efficiently avoid them

I bought a Montrose shirt last year for the first time since I was about 14, simply as a way to donate money to the club during the pandemic.

You've been watching too much television.

Not keen on the scratchy nylon they make them out of. If they made them in cotton, even better cashmere, I'd be well into spreading the Clachnacuddin brand around Mediterranean shores.

I own football tops and I sometimes wear the ones with collars under a jumper but I consciously don't wear them out and about or take them on holiday. I dunno maybe I'm just insecure or something but I do find it a bit cringey but not as bad as it's made out to be. Might be okay with it if I supported a diddy club.

For the people that think it's abhorrent behaviour, are grown men allowed to escape such judgments when wearing football tops at their teams football games?
