The Commencement: Just Because You Can….Doesn’t Mean You Should!

As I’ve stated a zillion over kill times often, I live on an island.  It’s a tourist town, we draw in a lot of idiots tourists that throw caution to the wind, no holds bar.  This means that people watching and picture snapping is at it’s best here!  It’s an art and I’ve grown to love it!  It might be tacky but I’ve chosen to share my sick addiction art with all of you because you are my friends and you will laugh appreciate it along with me.  Understand I am not picking here, I am merely pointing out the obvious, just because you can doesn’t mean you should.  If you weigh 400 pounds, just because you can fit into a size small bikini, it doesn’t mean you should do it.  Just because you can dress like you’re 20 when you’re 40-something of course I’m not guilty of this…shut up, doesn’t mean you can!  Just because you can fit 15 people into a surrey, doesn’t mean you can.  Just because you can buy a surf board, doesn’t mean you can ride a wave.  Just because you can wear a tuxedo and top hat while riding a bike down the seawall (yes we saw this today, where oh where was my camera?) does not mean you should.  You get the picture.  Now every Monday, you will see my pictures of such idiotic, stupid, what-where-they-thinking? true acts!  I hope you laugh your ass off giggle at these like we do.  Please don’t take offense.  I only snap the pictures, I don’t commit the crimes!

So for my first ever post of “Just Because You Can, Doesn’t Mean You Should”…ta dah…as Bubby would say….here it is:

Seriously dude?  No one, and I mean NO ONE, looks good in a Speedo!  NO ONE!  And on top of that, you are like 90, you have a beer gut and your flip flops are the wrong color!  I only wish I had taken this shot from the other side, this dude had his wallet tucked in the buttocks region on the other side.  WTF?  WOW…..JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN….DOESN’T MEAN YOU SHOULD!  See what I mean?  I got a million of these!  Check back every Monday, they only get scarier better from here!  I will be adding a linky to this segment in the future so that you can add your own “just because you can, doesn’t mean you should” photos here every Monday. That way, we can all laugh enjoy them with you!  Start snapping pictures at your local Wal Mart, Kroger, restaurants, anywhere people…this could get sick fun!
