It's a Mod Mod Mod Mod World
If'it's been a while since you've seen the video that explains - to the extent that anything can - this picture, well then it's high time you had another look. The song got stuck in my head when we were in the UK earlier this summer, for obvious reasons - although I want to dispel any rumor that catty people (looking at you, Peenee) may have started about me gallivanting about anywhere "with a miniskirt on," as the deathless lyric goes.
And once you've recovered, we can consider whether there is still any comic fodder to be made of old people acting younger. I've been away from American TV too long - is that still a thing? If so, who are these older people, and what do they dress up as - Snooki? Katy Perry?
As for Miss Ball, here, I have to admit, however grudgingly, that this still is distinctly less alarming than seeing her in motion. It's not flattering - one couldn't go that far, not with those boots and that hat - but she can almost carry off the dress. Almost.
