It’s incredible someone is finally showing how HORRIBLE the styles of clothing have become. Of course, it began with the LOUD, clashing colors and geometric shapes with HUGE buttons, and has come to this. However, this is not new. The older generations speaks about Saran Wrap and Aluminum Foil clothing. Great art work in this expose.
I think maybe you didn’t get the cartoon. It’s clearly about how bad the economy is. It’s so bad that the “Fall Collection” from “Hobeau” is for Depression-era clothes.
Oh, I get it!!!!!!! Well, in that case, this is so sad! I was just goggling at how BEAUTIFUL the women were. Still, a GREAT cartoon, even better than how I read it. Perhaps cartoons are more like the Bible. Many layers. Many meanings. Maybe this cartoon IS so great because it can appeal to people in various frames of thinking. I like the interpretation Rhodes gave.
Oh, I read it AGAIN. Yet another layer of meaning. The word Hobeau. In fact, separating the word into its two components, I can see ANOTHER layer of meaning. Ho-beau. (Beau meaning boyfriend). Or, “hobo” as in dirt poor, on the street, begging. Layer upon layer.
