Jumper.

Really, did we need a dumbed-down American translation, subby?

Anyone else kinda turned on by a couple of those jumpers?

No, we needed a smarted-up translation from English English. Sweater jumpers don't jump. I won't even JUMP for "jumpers." However, a sweater CAN make you sweat.

Also, lose some of those extraneous vowels you guys love to use.

...thought to have first been held by students in Vancouver around the turn of the millennium.

As a denizen of Vancity I'm not sure whether I'm supposed to be made proud or deeply ashamed by this revelation.

Going with deep shame here just to be safe.

/LOL'd at the tag, Subby.

The Wheaton tag makes me feel creepy. Its like Fark is his old internet girlfriend, and we just can't get over him. We know he's not coming back, but we'll still tell everyone about the brief romance we had with a child celebrity.

No you're not the first since subby put the mental image in our heads with the use of the "Wheaton" tag.

Oh, and WTF?!?! Who would pay these outrageous prices for sweaters?

$1277?! Does that include the model?

and

$1230...not even if the baby Jesus himself had peed in it

Right. You have to take the automatic image and do something weird with it.

Well, since "jumper" as an article of clothing means something completely different in American English, it seems warranted.

My boss wore a hideous Christmas sweatshirt (think it may have belonged to his wife when she was a teen in the 80's) on Friday for our ugly sweater contest. Now, I may not like the guy, but I think he should've won first place for the monstrosity he walked around in for 8 hours. Words truly cannot describe how awful it was. I wanted a pic but figured it would be awkward for me to ask my boss to take a photo of him. I still shudder to think about how horrid the thing was to behold. Ah, the memories will linger for a while.

Thank you for taking the time to make magic with your keyboard. Your descriptive of the sweater your boss wore was not only humorous, it was so detailed that I feel (like many other Farkers I'm sure) that I was there making merry with you and your co-workers. I'm still chuckling as I picture that legendary garment. I'll admit I'm jealous; few can paint a picture with words as well as you. Bless your heart. Happy Holidays to you and yours.
