This fun Odd Pueblo feature asks the audience to rate a trend, topic or sighting of something around town: is it snappy or crappy?
The last snappy or crappy, political caricatures and figurines – with a Hillary Clinton nutcracker doll as an example – racked up a majority of snappy votes at 54 percent. A mere 10 percent voted crappy, 21 percent gave a snap/crap vote and 12 percent were too busy trying to crack open a walnut to decide.
Rather than a political statement, the latest snappy or crappy is a fashion statement: “wife beater” tank tops as street wear.
These fine white tanks, which great-grandfathers wear as undershirts, have popped up more than once on the streets of Tucson – and beyond.
We love Old Pueblo for its laid-back vibe, but we’re wondering if great-grandpa underwear is the prettiest choice of outerwear for hopping about town.
This particular guy, who has been kept anonymous along with the rest of the folks in the photos, was spotted at a downtown bus stop. So it’s not like he’s just wearing the white tank for walking the dogs in the riverbed or watering his lawn.
These tanks also get a thumbs down for their nickname. The term “wife beater” never brings any positive connotations to mind.
Crappy, crappy, crappy.
Would you wear a wife beater tank top in public?
Would you wear one in private?
