Designer Diapers?! WTF?!

I am very easily amused. When I see something that makes me laugh, I will most often times go into a giggle fit that will last for a while. Just this evening, I was watching some quality reality television (Police Women of Memphis), and actually watched a commercial break. Most of the commercial breaks, I am up getting something to eat, taking care of some furry creature or another, or going to the bathroom. This time, I actually had a chance to sit.
One the screen- in HD, no less, shows a toddler clad in a jean-style diaper and a white button down t-shirt. He is walking down the street- presumably Rodeo Drive- and people are dropping everything to look at him. Apparently, his high-styling diaper has caught the attention of these snobby fashionistas.
I look down at what I am wearing- a pair of gym shorts and a ratty t-shirt and I’m thinking that this kid looks better than I do. Imagine me walking down rodeo drive wearing what I am in- I would send those fashionistas running for the hills!
Back to the commercial- I see these people ogling this kid, and then catch the tagline for this particular brand, “The coolest you’ll look while pooping your pants.” This makes me laugh myself sick. I realize that they are available for a limited time only, so apparently, you can only look cool shitting yourself for a limited time. I post these thoughts on facebook, and my vet (yes, I am facebook friends with my vet- she came to my wedding too) adds that some people can look cool crapping themselves in a paper bag. This starts a full on giggle fit for me (and yet another reason why I love my vet- she has a wonderful sense of the absurd).
This makes me wonder if the adult diaper world would use an idea like this one to style-up their products. I am sure adults, more so than infants and toddlers, are concerned about how they look when crapping themselves. This can open up a whole line of designer depends- not just jean, but stripes, polka dots, and even plaid. And why stop there- let’s bring in the big names, such as Armani, Chanel, and for the men we can have Hugo Boss. This can even show your styling skills in the care home- next thing you know, the old folks will be ordering the young’uns to bring them their favorite designer depends in, and be sure to get the right size, damn it!
As I am taking my dogs out in the yard for their evening constitutional, another thought crosses my mind- why not have styling diapers for dogs? I do know that there are diapers for dogs- I have seen them, and considered purchasing them for an elderly dog we had who had issues with bladder control. We all have seen dogs dressed up in all sorts of costumes- even I am guilty of dressing of my two in Santa and Mrs. Claus outfits (they looked adorable). So why not do designer doggie diapers? That would really make a statement at the dog park, for sure.
All of these thoughts lead me to wonder what is next for kids? I mean really, jean diapers? Come on. Ok, maybe I am really jealous and wanting them in adult styles for when I need them. That’s it!
