Seinfeld Apologizes For Offensive Pineapple Wig

KUApril36-007Why should he have to apologize at all? It was a costume party; it was 1936. I say wear whatever you want, whether it be velvet capris or a floral apron.

And all these years later, his smile hasn’t really changed. He’s the same charismatic funnyman.

His chest, however, only improved with age, peaking in the mid 90s.

I’m sorry, Ridley; I had to borrow your Seinfeld pic.

Oh, snap. This suddenly makes sense.

Akbar Gbaja-Biamila: Big Man, Come Save Me


You are cordially invited to visit the Blog of Funny Names today for my post on Akbar Oluwakemi-Idowu Gbajabiamila.

Originally posted on The Blog of Funny Names:

Every Monday evening, my family is glued to the TV, watching NBC’s American Ninja Warrior. We watch as finalists compete in their regions to move on to the national finals in Las Vegas, where they face a four-stage course modeled after the famed Mt. Midoriyama in Japan. Yes, it would make sense to drink a Midori Sour while watching.

Alongside Matt Iseman as host is former NFL player Akbar Gbaja-Biamila, with a name so exciting, it deserves the spotlight for today’s post.

Adding his middle names only makes it better: Akbar Oluwakemi-Idowu Gbajabiamila.

  • Akbar is Arabic and means “great.” This Akbar is not to be confused with Akbar and Jeff, from Matt Groening’s Life in Hell comic strip.
  • Oluwakemi means “God blessed me.”
  • Idowu means “born after twins.”  His older brother Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila, a twin, is the Green Bay Packers all-time sacks leader. Lucky for him, they fit the name on his jersey.

Campus Fashion: Then And Now, Part I

This was how campus gentlemen dressed in 1941.
SourOwlFootball41-001This is how they dress now:

You set yourself up for this, Andy; you didn’t just fall out of your dorm bed into this outfit. I give you that it’s creative: a buffalo shirt, a Nirvana-throwback cardigan, striped “statement” socks, moccasins…But it’s certainly no herringbone topcoat.

And what about this male?

Aside from the “supermodel, work” stride, these pieces might work separately. I can see that he spent some time putting this together, matching wrist bracelet to ankle bracelet. It is casual, but it’s forced; the scrunched-up sleeves are affected. Perhaps it’s clean and current, but it’s just no match for a corduroy trouser.

In fact, pretty much any trouser looks better than an overdone jean.

Horseshoe pockets? Good luck with that.

Early Predecessor To Nestea Plunge

KUFall392-RushWeekLadies were living large during the 1939 University of Kansas Rush Week. From driving seatbeltless in convertibles to box-stepping to Benny Goodman,a good time was had by all.

KUFall395-RushWeekVaya con Dios, commoners!


And when things got down to the nitty gritty, these gals knew how to get the job done. Gossip columns don’t write themselves. KUFall39-001Of course, somebody had to clean up the mess left behind. After all, not everybody can pledge. So like Carol Burnett mopping the floors, this woman put her hair up, grabbed the broom, and got her hands dirty.

KUFall39-002Same sentiment, Carol?
