Yahoo News! reports on 'utilikilt' phenomenon from Seattle

Yahoo News! reported about the "utilikilt" phenomenon coming out of Seattle. I tried to get the embed for the video but failed. In the meantime, I clicked onto the site for the company making them and recovered that. So click on the headline and go there.

Point: Social fads are a barometer about what's going on in our society. Some fads are interesting, and most are superfluous. But, every now and again, one turns up that's just funny. A little light-heartedness these days is not going to hurt anyone. In the meantime, though, an opinion is that this fad needs to die on the drawing board.
