Repost: Superhero Accesory

I am having a little creative writer's block. I have plenty of ideas for posts but my brain can't pump out anything creative or funny. So instead of not posting anything I decided to delve into my archives. I wrote this back in September of 2009 I don't think anyone read it.

The new fashion fad for next year is going to be capes. I'm starting my own cape business, now everyone can be fashionable along with magicians, superheroes and eccentric, rich old geezers. I will probably be up and running by the beginning of 2010. Here are some of my different cape ideas:

  • Fireproof cape - geared towards firefighters and home safety

  • Glow in the dark cape - for clubbing and night time fun

  • Waterproof cape - to wear in the rain or pool

  • Stain resistant cape - for clean freaks

  • Mini cape - for the vertically challenged, kids or don't like full size

  • Look at me cape (with lights and sounds) - for attention whores

  • Floatation Device cape - in case you're on the Titanic

  • Parachute cape - may come in handy

  • Bib cape - for the fancy baby

  • Groomsman cape - an addition to the top hat and cane

  • Purse cape - with pockets so women don't need to carry a bag

  • Roll-up cape - rolls up into a pouch like a hood for when you don't need it

  • Blanket cape - is thicker for the colder nights

  • Advertising cape - market your business

  • Animal cape - a penguin would look awesome, it already has the tuxedo

I want to give partial credit to my buddy Dustin Horton for creating these brilliant ideas. We got bored on the way back from a sales conference in Pittsburgh and started talking about capes for some reason. We talked for like an hour about it in detail and were laughing hysterically. I think the monopoly guy could use a nice cape. If you have any creative cape suggestions please let me know. This is definitely going to catch on........well probably not.

Can you combine waterproof and parachute?

There should be a Pancake Cape: Summons a plateful of pancakes of your hearts desire upon flourishing it over a plate.

Teleportation cape: draw the cape over your face to be instantly teleported to the location of your choice.

The My Kids an Honor Roll Student Cape: For the those mom's and dad's that gotta say my kid is better then yours.

thats all for now hehe.

Chocolate cake. I mean cape.

May I have the flotation device cape? I'm not a very strong swimmer. Oh wait....I'm not a superhero, either. Dang. Striking out everywhere today!

Hart Johnson said...

Yeah--Alex and I are in the same designer club, I think... seems to me if you can catch enough air to float slowly down, you certainly aren't going to sink.

I am just relieved you didn't mention a superhero cape, or I would have to acuse you of not seeing The Incredibles...

I'd get a Look at Me cape, but I'm not sure how much that improves the Attention Whore thing over running around naked.

Cheeseboy said...

Ha ha! So stinkin' funny. I am glad people are reading it now.

I want the attention whore.

Also, I am in a similar funk. Not sure what is going on with my brain.

How about a cape of invisibility...
That could really come in handy!

Cruella Collett said...

Oh, I could go for any number of these, had it not been for one tiny, little detail - haven't you seen "The Incredibles"? Capes on superheroes can be really, really dangerous!

Now if you could just invent one that deflects insults and ridicule…I'd love to buy one of those...
