Old Men Laughing

I park next to this mural at least twice a month and have always thought of it as the “grumpy old man” mural. Upon taking a closer look this Saturday, I realize these “grumpy” men are nearly all laughing!

I imagine the one sober man told the joke to put the others in stitches. I bet it was one of those jokes involving three types of people (e.g. “a blonde, a brunette, and a redhead” or something less PC) and when their laughter had run its course, the old men went back to grumpily complaining about the “youth of today.”

Shirt, One Star (thrifted). Skirt, One Star. Sandals, Lela Rose for Payless. Sunglasses, Target. Earrings, Bag, Charming Charlie.

Or maybe they are laughing at the silly fashion blogger. After which they will complain about the current, self-obsessed generation.

This mural, painted by Joshua Silveira, is on the side of University Art at 26th and J.
