apparently the new nickname for comically large suits is "Chopper Suits", so named after our old friend Chopper (from Da Band) who put out a video in 2009 to take shots at some folks and let the world know he's a boss these days. Except no one informed him that bosses who survived the 90s now wear tailored suits, not one-size-fits-all from off the rack at the big-and-tall store that's going out of business. So he embarrassed himself and now he's an internet meme, and every day, literally, people eat breakfast, say their prayers, get dressed, make a joke about chopper suits, then go to work where they will probably read other people's jokes. There's well over 500 comments, and counting. Someone in 2009 said, "yo, the comments are the best!". if you want to squint a little, here's a sampling.
that was in 2009. here's some of the 2011 variety
a couple quick takes on the comments:
1. everyone is saying the n word, but most people are not actually spelling the full n-word. which is sort of amazing per the Louis CK theory of Might As Well Say It...
2. the cultural details in threads like this are ridiculous. Overton from Living Single, every Michael Clarke Duncan character, nuggets on OJ, sports commentary. it's a black pop culture seminar, basically.
Anyha. Chopper Suits! Maybe you want to wear one for Halloween?
