One of my cousins got married on Saturday.
So, I had to have some kind of swanky outfit.
No problem, I still have the suit I wore to the last cousin's wedding.
However, I have to get a new shirt and tie, to make it look like it's a brand new outfit.

Anyway, eec and I had a hell of a time in Myer trying to find a shirt and tie combo that a) fit me and b) looked good.

After much fruitless searching we got hold of a saleswoman (she turned out to be a horrible saleswoman, but that's not the point of this story).
The point of the story is that, when we told her I had a grey suit, the first thing she reccomended was a pink shirt.

Okay, put aside the fact that pink is a colour I will never wear, and turn your attention to the reaction of both eec and myself.
At the same time we both thought, "why would I/Jacob want to look like a galah?"

For those not in the know, a galah is a type of Australian parrot:

Furthermore, "galah" is also used as a synonym for a fool, as in "that guy's a total galah".

So, why the fuck is it fashionable to dress in the colours of this ignoble bird?

Maybe they are just trying to get rid of the shirt? But then again, I have been seeing way too much pink around lately...

Nope. Pink and grey really are in fashion.
