Who wears weird shorts?

A couple years ago I bought a pair of cowboy boots online from Urban Outfitters (and yes, I do appreciate the irony of buying cowboy boots from a place with “urban” right there in its name, don't you worry) and ever since, I’ve been getting emails from them telling me about their clothes. By now I’ve gotten used to all kinds of batshit crazy concoctions they’ve tried to push, from vests that might be dresses, to tablecloths that might be shirts, but I think today’s addition might beat them all:

The hell?

Listen, I am the first person to admit I have no sense of fashion. If I could wear jeans and a t-shirt and sneakers to everything without getting fired or yelled at by my Mom, I would. But this can’t be cool right now! Or ever!! Can it? Sweet fancy Moses, please tell me it can’t. Nor can this:

If these romper suits are totally hip and hot right now and you just went out yesterday and bought yourself five, one of which you’re wearing RIGHT NOW, I apologize. I meant no offense. Actually, you know what? I kind of did. Return them immediately. And don’t you dare exchange them for this, because I totally already have it.

I've decided that no one makes clothes for anyone over the age of 21 anymore. Pretty soon that damn Forever 21 store will be on every corner where a Starbucks isn't. Or they'll just start building them right on top of each other.

I don't think these things can be worn by anyone over 6.

Far be it for me to be an accurate judge of fashion, but those hardly look like they'd be convenient for quickie sex. So no-go in my books.

hey, it looks like t-strap character shoes are fashionable to wear with these fancy shorts! At least I already have the shoes! In black AND nude!
