Egg Yoke

the skullcap-based, clothes suspension system
 
(0)
  [vote for,

No more tired shoulders and chafed waists from heavy, hanging garments. A new, distinctive egg-shaped cap with ultra light suspension bows has been developed to transform the way we wear clothes. Like a disheartened, horned helmet, the handsome Egg Yoke not only grasps shirts, coats, suspenders (braces) and bra straps, but its three hook-tipped yokes can easily support purses, backpacks and balanced grocery bags.

A fresh fashion line accompanies the Egg Yoke with a loop on each shoulder and under the loop an opening to pass through any undergarment loop. Like the erect stride of an African with a head-balanced load, you’ll saunter with face held high and clothes breezily dangling above your shoulders and hips. Heads will turn in wonder at your stylish crown that relieves the spine by literally taking the shirts off your back.

       Stylish and practical.

       I detect a hint of sarcasm in your words.
FarmerJohn, Aug 23 2004
  

       I propose a club consisting of males who wear this clothing all the time. They would be know as the albumen.
dobtabulous, Aug 23 2004
  

       Then your detection is awry, no sarcasm was intended.
harderthanjesus, Aug 23 2004
  

       One should not sit on tall walls while wearing this.   

       At some point, there's going to have to be an illustration with all your clothing ideas integrated [FarmerJohn]. I wait eagerly!

       I like the way the Egg Yoke helps to keep my garments off my shoulders, eliminating embarassing sweat stains on my clothing on sweltering summer days. Dramatically decreases the dry-cleaning of my judicial robes.

       I would imagine that when you turned your head your clothes would turn with it travelling much further than they normally would thus creating more drama in the action. Get noticed at parties!

       Does Geocities hate me? Whenever I attempt to view one of FarmerJohn's illustrations, it times out on me.

       This would be great for eliminating the marks bras leave on my shoulders.

       Seems to me the test of a pun mfd is whether the idea would stand if it were renamed to a non-pun name. This one clearly would.
waugsqueke, Aug 23 2004
  

       I swear the pun title came after the "idea".
FarmerJohn, Aug 23 2004
  

       I believe him. This could work with the name Yoke Cap. However, "idea," is that what you are calling it?   

       BTW, what is in the water you drink over there Farmer?
sartep, Aug 23 2004
  

       Aquavit (life water).
FarmerJohn, Aug 24 2004
  

       spirit, is it a pop-up problem?   

       FJ, I think Tim Henman could use this. he is always fidgeting with his t-shirts.
po, Aug 24 2004
  

       Po - it's just that Geocities never loads it's pages up. It's working fine now that I'm on a library computer. Perhaps Geocities doesn't like my sister's connection.

       Ha ha, ho ho, hee hee, I'll always treasure that etching, bris!
FarmerJohn, Aug 31 2004
  

       Thanks. I had to make something appropriately arty for you, Mr. Farmer.
bristolz, Aug 31 2004
  

       Wow, Bris, that's really good.
sartep, Aug 31 2004
  

       That is classic.   

       Was classic.
