pink - the new black

He's walking down the road, biceps, triceps and forceps, red tabs hugging his waist, ID shoes, a pink shirt, ray bans... woah! Rewind that please! A pink shirt?! What's happening here?

I'll tell you what's happening. Pink has come to mantown, and is here to stay. Pink has become an integral part of our (no, not the pink Steven Tyler wailed like a banshee about) wardrobe. And most importantly, Pink has become the new Black.

From a man's perspective, it's a colour with a story, some morals (of sorts), and many shades of grey (or pink). And why is that? Well, it's because its shades can divide a man into two very distinct groups. Still not understanding? Well... I shall not mince my words then. The shade of pink a man chooses can tell a lot about him. Like whether he's metrosexual or is happy and gay. Phew... THERE, I said it!

Point being? Well, how much ever 'some folks' overzealously jump up to deny it, all my shades of pink shirts are of the metrosexual kind. And point being, yes Mr. Rocker, your cubicle is metrosexual pink (which like I mentioned is the new black ;)). And the point very much being that your, my friend Mr. Rainbow, overcoat's stripes are distinctively gay.

And the moral:
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a splash of pink.

(Politically correcting late Mr. T S Eliot)
