Beijing Bans Bright Clothes For Officials

A Flock of Seagulls: Greatest Band Ever

Well, what the Hell are they gonna do when the 80’s fashions come back?

BEIJING – Public servants in the gritty central Chinese city of Zhengzhou should not sport “unnatural hair styles” or wear clothes that are too colorful, according to new city regulations.

From now on, Zhengzhou city officials should make sure their clothing matches and stay away from bright color schemes, the regulations specify.

Neatness and order are the order of the day.

“Don’t just dress any which way,” the regulations order. (H/T - )

Great, now they’ll all have to start dressing like Knit Knots (center):


Yeah, that’s right: Knit Knots.

    I see equality for all in China is still being rigidly enforced. Apparently, differences just can’t be tolerated in some places.

    By the way, Wyatt, A Flock Of Seagulls was not the greatest band ever. That distinction goes to Huey Lewis & The News.

    Morgan - I liked them, too. Heh. I wonder if the Hill-dabeast was allowed to wear a bright pantsuit while she was over there?

    I heard the uniform rental guys were havin a hard time of it, with all the lay offs in the USA, this might be a new and better market for them,what with the global economy favoring China. Think those GM coveralls, Mo-Par jumpsuits, would look spiffy on those Chinese officials ,they might have to dye the Home Depot aprons,that orange might be a little flashy.

    Wyatt, we need to talk about your *ahem* taste in music. Good grief…

    I’ll give you the Psychedelic Furs…but A Flock of Seagulls?

    Old NFO - “On the bright side . . . ” Very punny!


    Diller - Oh yeah, no way the Home Depot orange is gonna fly over there.

    GroovyVic - You’re damned right you’ll give me The Psychedelic Furs! Greatest band . . . ever!

    (The Flock of Seagulls comment was with tongue firmly planted in your mouth . . . er, cheek. Heh. I love “I Ran” and “Space Age Love Song, ” but they’re not my favorite band.

    Smite - With their walls and their human rights violations . . .

    Doghouse - Good show. It’s no Phineas and Ferb, but it’s good. And the girl in it (Nina?) is very pretty.
