I'm Shooting Glances At You!: Assault Rifle Sunglasses

assault-rifle-glasses.jpg

Because nothing says "I'm a badass who takes eye care seriously" like a pair of sunglasses with temples that look like little assault rifles, this is a pair of sunglasses with temples that look like little assault rifles. They're a collaboration between Jeremy Scott and Linda Farrow and cost €380 (~$491). *spitting out penises* $491 for a pair of NOVELTY sunglasses?! That's ridiculous! "Who cares, let's go back to why you were spitting out penises." Haha, did I say penises? Damn autocorrect. "This isn't a text message, GW." ABORT, ABORT.

Hit the jump for a shot(!) of the glasses in grey/blue.

Thanks to Tam, who has a pair of sunglasses with that naked chick from trucker's mudflaps on the sides. Now those -- those I would pay $500 for.

    I've been reading your blog for a long time now and I enjoy your posts and witty comments. But this bugs the hell out of me.

    Please use the proper terminology. They are not "assault rifles" unless they are fully automatic. These are not... because they aren't even guns. They're an interpretation of them.

    By using the wrong terminology you are helping to continue to spread misinformation, fear, and propaganda. The cosmetic appearance of the firearm is not what makes it an "assault rifle," the fully automatic function does. A semi-auto AR-15/ M16 style firearm functions the same as a semi-auto hunting rifle. The only real difference is the "aggressive" appearance of the AR-15/ M16 style firearm. This goes with any firearm... even the AK47.

    From now on, please use the proper terminology.

    Lesson here? Don't judge a book by its cover... unless that book is herpes. Then you have herpes.

    Is this a joke? You're trying to lecture a point that doesn't need to be made here. When someone calls the AR-15/AK pattern rifles "Assault Rifles", then your point would be correct and you should voice it.
    You can't even see a selector switch (or lack thereof), so maybe they are assault rifles.

    wow I was incredibly misinformed before reading your wisdom, thank you so much for putting it all into perspective. I really thought I could shoot with these :/

    Funny. That's not the point I was making at all. Whatever.
