which I (a Scotsman and living in Scotland), for the record, wasn't offended by. There was truth in your funny comment.

Thanks for that. All I did was tweak a Simpsons joke anyway!

Though it is water under the bridge now and does no one any help arguing whether it was offensive. All I'm saying as this was a malicious comment that I'm definately offended by.

I've never understand this trend...it's just as bad as any of the other stupid trends over the years. It make you look like more of a jerkwad than a douchebag.

Anyone who likes American television programming is automatically a jerkwad/douchebag.

Can no one see how I'd be condemned if I said that with any degree of seriousness?

i've done the 'popping' thing (never heard of that term before) and it all depends on the shirt I'm wearing...it might look better that way so i'll wear it like that. sometimes shirts look extremely stupid if the collars are folded down conventionally.

i must be a 'douchebag' but a part-time one at that.


oh look, everyone is agreeing.

I agree ewen it depends on the shirt.

But alot of polos you just look plain fucking geeky with the collar down. And damn straight, I think people are jealous because they don't necessarily have the bottle to pull it off like us.

This was popular at least 2-3 years ago when I was in undergrad and I've always hated it. And still have to deal with on it my new campus now which is predominantly undergrads

to judge someone on how they dress is elitist. i remember hearing Bono on an Irish talk show back in 1989 (lol, the 80s!) having a go at an audience member who had raised the question about how U2 fans dress or were having a go at him for how he dressed.

paraphrasing Bono:

"I don't think U2 fans would be laughing at you for how you dress, I think you were probably laughing at them. it's elitist"

Why do people pop them? Is it for protection from vampires? To keep their necks warm? If so, why not just where a turtleneck.

There are simple rules in life:

Don't put ice in beer
Don't piss in the wind
Don't pop your collar
