Pretty fans for men

Are you passing wind or just happy to see me?

There being some quaint taboo against men shaking painted fans in public, the whole thing should be gee-whizbanged to the maximum.

So, an array of artfully painted blades designed to look like splayed bamboo (?) fans will be put behind the cage of handheld and larger electronic fans.

Also, a series of such painted splayed blades could be installed inside reinforced "umbrellas".

       Oh I thought you meant groupies, hangers-on, and associated admirers. Now I think of it, many of mine are actually quite pretty, but not all.

       + love it, but I too, would love to sport a Samurai fan!

       "gee-whizbanged" OMG, a new statement to adorn my love letters with. You are one missing baker. Where the hell you been?   

       I love the blades. Macho, and functional. Yes.

       are the blades sharp?

       Are they sharp? What would be the point otherwise?

       You funny. If the blades weren't sharp they'd be "metal strips". Right???
blissmiss, Jul 22 2021
  

       Although many standard fan blades already have tapered ends, they can still be painted to look sharp.

       Technical term for a metal strip that is not sharp: "Sharpenable"

       Technical term for a metal strip that has been made sharp: "Ensharpened".
