Freaky Fitness for the New Year
Today's Gallery entry is brought to you by the wacky duo of Al and Kathy Wirtes. It's the cover of the monthly community publication, The Broomfielder:
At first glance, you don't know what is going on with this woman. At first I thought she was in some sort of sling-type contraption. A closer look shows that she's playing with a hula hoop, although at the same time she seems to be doing a very lame "Walk Like an Egyptian" move. Then she's got her leg up--do you trot or dance like that when you're hula hooping?--and you're not really sure what that black thing is on her leg. Is it a awkward-looking water bottle? If you look again, this seems to be her boot top. But then why does her boot show through her purple pants? Is the leg ripped? But maybe those aren't her pants at all. Perhaps it's a strange apron or leggings of some sort. If so, why is she hula hooping/Walking Like an Egyptian in a purple apron-like-legging-thingie? And what's with that yellow cloth hanging down from her neck? Is it a scarf, or an ugly snot rag?
This image is enough to give you a headache, so don't think about it too much. What the hell was that photographer thinking?!
