Erm. First of all, yes, it can be a skirt. It can also be a shawl, a bandeau or a dress. Second, that was totally rude. Snobservations should be kept to one's own head or in a nice little blog, not blurted out to the person you're snobserving. Third, what came immediately to my mind was a snippet from the movie "Airplane."
Steve McCroskey: Johnny, what can you make out of this?
[Hands him the weather briefing]
Johnny: This? Why, I can make a hat or a brooch or a pterodactyl...
I wish I had said "It can be a skirt or a hat or a brooch or a pterodactyl..."
My other recent snobservation is about a series of radio commercials for a local jewelry store. Probably to save money, the commercials all use almost exactly the same lines from four actors, two men and two women. One woman is telling the other about a gift and the conversation between the men is intercut. The only change in the commercials is what the gift was. Apparently, "Brian" has hidden a ruby ring, diamond necklace, diamond earrings and an emerald bracelet in the microwave, and every single time "Lisa" has "almost cooked it!"
Really, dude, get a smarter wife. If she is so dumb she starts up the microwave before opening it up to put food in it, you're going to have really idiotic children!
