Look, I know January has been a busy month for most of us, but at what point did the media bump their head and think it was OK to officially start using terms such as “merse” and “mewelery.”
It happened this morning on the Today Show and you can read a portion of the story below,
“There is a relatively new dichotomy in men’s apparel, and a new language to go along with it. Words like “murse” (yes, man purse), and “mewelry” (man-jewelry) have been introduced into our vernacular to describe new products for men”
Have people gone crazy? I mean, we’re still trying to get guys to quit carrying around backpacks, much less calling their bags a murse. If that starts happening you’re going to end up with guys carrying empty potato bags in an effort to prove their “manliness.”
And “mewelery” for man jewelery? That is some wonky (we’re making up words right?) crap if you ask me.
Along with the backpack issue, we’re still trying to get over the insanity that “men that like fashion are gay.” That’s never going to happen tossing around words such as merse and mewelery. Don’t do it. Ever. As in, ever ever!
This of course is written with a little humor in mind, but please, whatever you do, don’t start saying murse (even though it’s been joked about for years) or mewelery.
And Today Show (segment below)… we really need to have a chat!
