12 Ways To Look Ridiculous

Updated on June 21, 2015

 It's true. People do things that make them look ridiculous. They have their reasons, I suppose, for doing the bizarre things that they do. If they could see themselves as others do, they might think twice. Or not. It's likely they just don't care and view the world differently then the rest of us. As a people watcher, I can't help but wonder what drives these behaviors. I'll never know for sure. Following are some ways some folks choose to be ridiculous.

Low-Slung Pants -

This does not look good, guys. It makes you look like you have no legs and you sort of walk like you don't when you're wearing them. I don't care if your underwear are red or paisley or striped. No one wants to see them. Even your Mom doesn't want to see your butt hanging out like that. Also called "sagging" this fashion trend had its start in prison. Though I don't believe wearing your pants' crotch to your knees should be against the law, some communities have attempted to ban them. The "droopy drawers" bill rarely passes but the guy who wrote the song "Pants On The Ground" wasn't too far off.

Clothes On Dogs -

Your dog does not want to wear clothes. He is a dog not a doll. Dressing your pet up in cute little costumes and dresses should be embarrassing to you. It probably is to him. It is also very expensive and those that sell you dog duds are laughing all the way to the bank. It is something you do for you, not for the dog. Here are some of the clothing options available for dogs - pajamas, bathrobes, raincoats, sweaters, and holiday costumes. If you're walking your dog in his pajamas, you look ridiculous.

Hair Color -

When we think of hair color, we think of blonde, brunette, red head and all the hues in between. We don't think of pink or green or purple or a combination of them all. What? It's great to be an individual even to stand out in the crowd a bit. But blue hair is very smurf-like and not a flattering fashion statement. If you could match it to every outfit you wear there might be something in that. I don't know. If you really have to do that to your hair, it's probably best to stick to a solid color.

Gauging Ear Lobes -

If you have holes in your ear lobes big enough to toss a quarter through, you look ridiculous. Properly called stretching, this form of body piercing can take a long time to get right. There are health risks to doing this and if you change your mind later it might not be possible to get your ear lobe back complete. Outre may be in but ear lobe gauging is out. There are doctors who specialize in gauge ear lobe reconstruction and repair so doesn't that tell us all something?

Sunglasses -

Sunglasses are made to protect your eyes from the sun's glare. They are not meant to be worn at night. Wearing sunglasses to a nightclub is crazy. It tells everyone who sees you that you are trying way too hard to be cool. It makes them wonder if you're cheating on your girlfriend or picked up a case of pink eye. Driving at night with sunglasses is unsafe. Just because you paid an outrageous amount for your designer sunglasses doesn't mean you have to wear them all the time. Or maybe you just forgot to take them off.

What You Drive -

If you are driving around the city streets in a Hummer, you look ridiculous. You may look rich and powerful but at eight miles per gallon if you're lucky (see video below), not too smart. Hummers aren't the only boats on the street either. It can't be easy to park them and passing is out. You're like the wealthy bully of the roadways. You are partly responsible for America's dependence on foreign oil. If that all is not enough, driving a Hummer on city streets is as bad as wearing sunglasses at night.

Scent -

If long after you've left the room we can still smell your cologne, it's more than we need of you. There are both men and women who seem compelled not to just dab it on but to slather it. It doesn't matter how tasteful the scent is. Too much of it and it will hang in the air like a fart long after you have departed. This leads to people thinking they can taste it on their food or smell it in their own hair. It's not good. To avoid being ridiculous remember that just a dab will do it.

Body Type Dressing -

If you've got it flaunt it but if you don't have it then you look ridiculous trying to flaunt it. It's as simple as that. Nothing makes me cringe more than seeing someone with a belly-baring blouse when it is obvious that big belly shouldn't be bare. Good fashion means enhancing your body type whatever it may be. It is not attractive to see fat legs below a mini skirt or a spare tire over a belt. It is always a good idea to take a look in a full length mirror before you go out.

Cell Phone -

People use their cell phones to look ridiculous. Loud, outrageous ringtones contribute to this. If everyone around you jumps and looks when your phone rings, it's too loud. If we find out all about your plans for the weekend when you're talking to a friend then you are too loud. Though hands-free cell phone devices are common and widely acceptable, you often look like you are talking to yourself. This causes many misconceptions and you may find strange people responding to you even if you are not talking to them. A long musical introduction on your message machine is ridiculous and people will hang up.

Lawn Ornaments -

The bathtub Virgin Mary in your yard would be better served without the gnomes, pink flamingos and other odd creatures to keep her company. Too many lawn ornaments in your yard looks ridiculous. Gnomes aren't that cute and plastic flamingos are tacky. But if you feel better having these to adorn the neighborhood, it's best to keep it simple. They are supposed to compliment your landscaping, not take it over. That infamous cowboy silhouette painted black or the bent over butt painted with red polka dots are just not necessary. We won't even talk about holiday decor here.

Motorcycle Head -

When you get off and park your motorcycle and go into a store or building, it's best to take off your helmet. Walking around inside with it on makes you look like a bubble head. Maybe you're afraid your hair is ruined or that it's too much trouble for what you have to do but you still look ridiculous. You look like you are auditioning for a part in an alien movie. If you're just trying to let everyone know you're an easy rider, no one cares. The same goes for bicycle helmets. Your lime green spandex and functional helmet doesn't impress anyone.

Dressing Alike -

Couples really shouldn't dress alike. It isn't that cute. You are not twins. Recently, dressing like your significant other has become a trend among Hollywood couples. They can get away with it because they are rich. You're probably not. Besides most of those Hollywood couples are young. You're probably not. Wearing matching loud Hawaiian shirts and red pants at your age looks ridiculous. It's overkill. We know you're a couple and even if we didn't, who cares. Your everyday dress becomes a public spectacle. Let's hope this fad doesn't catch on.

If you wear droopy pants or walk around with a helmet head, please don't be offended by this Hub. You likely hear a different drummer drumming and there's nothing wrong with that.

For more irreverent commentary, here's another Hub -

      I completely agree with the points you made here. As a high school teacher, I see way more saggy pants than I should or than I ever wanted to. I also abhor the unneccessary and bizarre things/places that are sometimes pierced. And though my hubby has 2 tattoos, I am NOT a tattoo fan AT ALL!!

      To us, the pants and piercings and tats look ridiculous, but to eachother, the kids tell me they're cool. I've asked guys if a milti-pierced girl looks good to them, and they say yes. Same with girls liking the pants. Evidently, the message is more important than how they actually look.

      I'm guilty of a few things you describe here (piercings, colorful hair, earphones and some others). But wouldn't it be boring if everyone just looked the same? I love the variety, as you say, you are a people watcher. If everyone looked 'normal' there wouldn't be anything interesting to watch. And I think over the top lawn ornaments are hilarious! When I was in Dublin for christmas some people really went all out, and I thought it was funny!

      One day when I actually have a lawn, I want to organize a contest in my new neighbourhood!! :D

      Suziecat7, What a great article full of humor and truth. I still can't figure out the droopy pants thing, and the ear guaging thing looks... painful. Definitely not my cup of tea. On the other hand, my generation went through a phase of wearing hip-huggers (talk about looking ridiculous) and halter tops (talk about looking even more ridiculous). I think I need to be quiet - people with glass dressing patterns shouldn't throw stones. ;) Great work. Thumbs up!

      I've never seen a better, more thorough, well-presented article about the NO-NOs one's sensitivities are bombarded with on every side! If only people THOUGHT about the images they present - and about the offence to their poor pets! You're absolutely right - pets do not need or like to be dressed up! Maybe a sweater for a walk in cold weather - but costumes and ridiculous stuff to make them look silly is downright offensive to them and to folks who rea1lly care about animals! Thanks for a job well done, as well as some snickers along the way! Thumbs up - and rated UP!^

      You pretty much nailed this one. People go to extremes in trying to look ridiculous. People also need to know how and where some styles originate. The low slung trouser bit, originated in prison, where the person wearing trousers low was telling others that he was available. Very good hub.

      I disagree about hair color. People should be able to wear whatever color they want, and guys should be able to wear wigs without people giving them funny looks, thinking their gay or whatever. However, exposing flab in any way is a definite turn-off. Please don't make me see that!!!! Later!

      I laughed all the way through this, and haven't even watched the videos yet. I once had a pastor who said the guys in the low riding pants looked like they had taken a dump in their pamper. My nephew showed up at a funeral once, yes a funeral, with green hair. My brother, obviously a little ambarrassed, introduced him to a friend named Buck Green, with "Jarad, meet Buck Green, no pun intended." To the list of bikers who wear helmets inside, add resident intern doctors in training who wear their scrubs outside of the hospital. It shows that they are new to being med students and too proud of it. They are transparent in their pride and it makes people laugh instead of respect them. also, those scrubs are full of germs once they've been to the local pub, ha ha. (: v

      Ok, where do I start?

      Hate the droopy drawers. The ear lobe freaked me out. Used to work with someone who marinated in cheap smelly perfume. Didn't even have to see the person, you knew he was around. The dogs? well, I have to admit I thought the spider and the ghosts were kinda cute. Never understood someone's need to wear sunglasses at night, or in the office during the day. Know several people that I think would literally die if they weren't talking on their cell phone during working hours and some take them to the break room, the bathroom, and if they go outside for a break you can bet a cell phone is glued to their head. I wonder when it was that people simply have to talk all the time. Never bothered anyone pre-cell phone days! Sheesh!

      Top stellar Hub. You touched on stuff people don't want to talk about much, because either they are participating in it or trying to keep peace with their kids who are doing these things.

      About the phone in the earlobe. I never saw that photo before, but I guess it is an alternative to wearing that thing hung over your ear.

      You touched a few nerves in me, and while I'm all for individual expression and youth's experimentation, there is a time to grow up. Mostly, kids will (perhaps they will have to live with the consequences of disfigurement, and maybe that's a lesson)'s the grownups wearing those belly-revealing shirts who have no business doing so that scare me.

      susie - you hit the nail on the head with each one of your views. I was young in the 1970's so I know about people looking ridiculous. I often wore a pair of platform saddle oxfords, the bottom was wood. I had long blonde hair with the top chopped off like a crew cut. So not only do I know ridiculous, I are one!

      So true. I have to admit that I have a couple of buddhas in my garden.

      I also think men with balding heads and long hair at the back need to get it cut.

      Totally agree with all of these, especially the low-slung pants! However, the other day we were talking about what we will do with our hair when we get to be post-70 and we are thinking of going for outrageous colour. We reckon we will be past caring what anybody thinks, and it might embarass our kids.

      Suzie: Definitely one of the funniest hubs I have come across yet. But yet even in all that laughter, it was informative as well. Very well done and the dressing up of the dogs was downright hilarious!

      Very much worthy of a "funny" hub credit.

      I couldn't agree more. Thanks for the laughs. I was beginning to get used to seeing the young and foolish in their baggy pants, but it blew my mind one day at a buffet restaurant to see a middle-aged man with middle-age spread and a beer belly walking around with the droopy pants and belly hanging out the top. It was hard to believe anyone would want to treat the world to such a sight on purpose.

      Low-Slung Pants - makes guys look like dogs and even dogs have more self respect. Pants falling down usually means that the wearer either can't afford a belt or his brains are in the part of his anatomy being exposed.

      OMG I can’t believe the cell phone in the ear lobe. I agree with most of your gripes especially the low slung pants; how anyone could think this makes them look attractive is beyond me. However I disagree with your take on the dog clothing. I knit doggie jumpers and sell them. Don’t they need to keep warm just like you through winter? My dog used to shiver with the cold, was, is it ridiculous to want to keep him warm, yep I even made a mini duvet for his basket too. Just to watch him shiver with the cold and not do anything about it is inhuman in my mind.

    • suziecat7 profile image

      suziecat7 5 years ago from Asheville, NC

      Rosemary. No you couldn't let your little dog be cold - I was attempting humor in this Hub and some people really do like pink flamingos in the yard. Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment.

      To funny, because it's so darn true! Missing from the list was the insane amount of tattoos that are plastered all over peoples bodies. Seriously, a "Red Socks" tattoo? Can't you just get a bumper sticker?

      Bravo for making me laugh by speaking the truth. I think the saggy pants are the worst. When I am out in public and see a guy like that I find my anxiety leven triple. I can't stand it. I find myself watching them like a hawk to see how far down the pants will slip before they pull them up. We usually think about their backside. I saw one guy from the front and his cow was dangerously ready to come flying out the barndoor.

      suziecat7, I'm just out and about checking up on the writers I should have read sooner. I fell in on this with much enjoyment, I think I've broken a good number of these in the way back before they went to the popular list of things to do.

      The fall down pants are about as ridiculous as it gets it seems. I really enjoyed this as a far and few non political write it seems as it's the circle I'm in or getting predominant.

      Looking at the date I'm a year or better behind and see the"people of Wal-Mart" have filled in where you left off, this was/is much better and I can move on sans screaming "I'm blind"

      Thanks for entertaining me,

      Hi Suzicat7 - I’ve just found this hub and found it very funny. It’s the pants thing and the holes in the ear lobes that get me. Euuugh!

      But then I am old, what do I know? All kids think they are wild, different (huh, yeah right!) and invented sex ... I can remember it well.

      Just one thing though, one extremely beautiful and stylish young woman I used to work with, one that all the men chased, hated those droopy pants ... she called them (indelicately) 's**tcatchers’. Bet the guys didn’t know that ... gave me a good laugh though.

      I love this! What is really funny, well for me is that my daughter wants to make dresses for our dog. We are letting her do it, I think that making the dresses might be harder then she thinks.

      The fact that I was not drinking my coffee when I read this hub is a very good thing. It is not all over my shirt right now.

      Great hub. I was only having a giggle, to myself, the other day about someones haircut. But, then I reminded myself that I used to have bleached spiky hair and wore trousers that has zips all over and straps strung between the legs. That was different though, we punks looked cool!

    • Kosmo profile image

      Kelley 2 years ago from California

      Low-slung pants are definitely ridiculous. I'll be glad when that fad disappears! I only thing I think isn't ridiculous on this list is people coloring their head hair. I think women with blue hair, in particular, are very hot. Pink hair isn't quite as good, though, but what the heck. Later!

    • ZRadach profile image

      I agree that a lot of this is in poor taste and does reflect on the personality of the person, usually not well. However, I would say that overly-harsh judgements for people that do something that is just not congruent with the established "norms" of a culture that happen to be fairly benign is not a good habit to get into. Some have their purposes as well that people may be using strategically although you don't know it.

      Although I must admit I wouldn't do pretty much any of this (although I have been known to wear sunglasses at night if I must get up very early the next day so that bright lights don't keep me wired when it gets late... works pretty well, usually, in helping you go to bed a little earlier... although it obviously wasn't a "fashion statement" and I didn't wear them in public)

      Funny hub. Keep it up =D
