Depends on What?

I am fully aware that our population is rapidly aging. I am fully aware that now the Baby Boomers have started to hit retirement age, their usual self-centred, self-indulgent view of the world shall be shifting to accommodate all things, er, older. Oh, stop looking at me that way. It's been the most spoiled generation in the history of history, except maybe the Henry the VIII kinda guys who ate with their feet, never bathed and made their walkways from the body parts of serfs.

So I get that advertisers and manufacturers will shift their focus accordingly. I understand why I have to keep seeing commercials for bathtubs that are actually just little cupboards you walk into. I get the companies pushing scooters and little belted chair elevators that zip up and down staircases. The boys want one of those, actually.

I'm cool with the increasing demonstrations of people who have to pee, suddenly. And you can't make Depends jokes too much anymore - cuz you never know. But I just saw an ad for Depends that kind of set off my limit light. 'Now available in patterns and colours'.

Depends lingerie.

No. Stop this. I thought those fancyass diapers for babies were ridiculous. All that dye and crap in the system to give your kid a plaid crap holder. But this latest revelation is too much. Maybe it's just my basically forthright and candid nature, but who do you think you're gonna be faking out with leopardskin Depends? By the point you know someone well enough to be comparing undies, you should know them well enough to reveal your various concerns.

They're a big hit in certain Florida Retiree Swingers communities. Yes...Really, google it for yourself. Apparently people move to Florida for retirement procreation and golf.

"a plaid crap holder"?

I wonder if they'll be doing different tartans for the various clans?

Next it will be even more customized attends to match decors, tech toys etc...

When Apple get's involved people will look knowingly at each other and say "Yep. There's a crap for that."

I rather like 'there's a crap for that'.

I don't know if there are plaid diapers.

Sometimes I make stuff up.
