    Shouldn’t 738 just read “Kaftans”?

    • Cupcake Murphy says:

      I very well could, however, I am particularly confused by the ones that have every primary color known to man swirling all over them like so many terrifying snakes and octopi.

  2. Who doesn’t love a kaftan?
    Put that ’70s shmata poolside mixing cocktails and it doesn’t get any better.

    #736 sent me to Google and to my surprise they are still being made. And they show smiling kids with helmets on jumping on them. Liars liars pogo sticks on fire. Radiologists and ER docs everywhere are thumbing through their dream books every time they hear another one of those devil sticks has been sold.

    My former neighbors misguidedly gave their eldest child a pogo stick for his birthday a year or so ago. They then put it out in their yard sale they had before they moved. This rather, shall we say, zaftig young woman of about 20 or so years of age came along, and decided she would give that stick a go. We all just stood there, transfixed as all of everything she had kaboinged up and down, up and down in front of us. I swear it happened in slow motion.
