I have remained silent on this disturbing trend long enough.

Over the past summer, I watched, in abject horror, the latest fashion "trend" promulgated by the rag trade and foisted upon the torsos of straight males across this great land of ours.

I refer, of course, to the "square-cut tank top"

It became the casual wear of choice for a certain sub-set of the population, those that I and several respected demographers refer to as the "douchebag". From the Latin douchebaggus vulgaris, a descriptive term for a certain subset of the plebescite who sported short togas, blow-out hairstyles and were inordinately fond of tanning, the Modern Douchebag is a direct descendant of the original, sartorially speaking.
