Way-Out Wednesday: Oh A Wiseguy, Eh?!

Welcome to a tardy Way-Out Wednesday!


Completely off topic, but saying the word "tardy" simultaneously makes me A.) snicker uncontrollably, like I'm getting away with saying something slightly unkosher, because apparently I'm in 7th grade and B.) gives me the heebie jeebies because it freaks my mind with a "holy shit, I'm late to class!" mini flashback feeling, because apparently I'm in 7th grade.

Speaking of rocking those "back in the day" flashbacks, today's pick for Way-Out Wednesday totally makes me want to be a kid on Halloween again. Also, today's pick totally makes say who am I kidding, I'd buy this for myself NOW for Halloween, even if I AM about 18 years past my trick-or-treating expiration date. I am, of course, talking about this fantastic Vintage 50's Tough Guy Thug Mask:


Badass, no? Why, soitenly! The 10 year old version of me was never cool enough to wear a mask like this for Halloween. Hell, the 33 year old version of me isn't cool enough to wear a mask like this. Cosa Nerdstra. Maybe if I get the old-timey gangster lingo down and add just a little bit o'moxie, I might stand a chance at pulling it off--or else it's coitens for me. Aha! See that? See what I did just there? My inner thug is ready know... pop a cap? Whatever. Now you try, or you'll be sleeping wit da fishes, ya big galoot!

Yep. Just as I suspected. Still not cool.


  1. Are you laughing at me? Are you laughing at me? Am I here for your amusement? Do you think I was placed here to make you laugh?

  2. Sweet. You get points for dropping a random, gangster movie quote! Win!

  3. ...but I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a (scary-arse) CLOWN, I amuse you? I make you laugh...

    See what I did there!! Clever, huh?
