Q. Why is your Tumblelog called "My Ear-Trumpet Has Been Struck by Lightning"?
A. Because "My Grandmother's Ear-Trumpet Has Been Struck by Lightning" wouldn't fit in the available space.
My friend today somehow mentioned dandys and I thought, why I not make a post about it in here, because I like’em.They’re style and that snobish attitude.
A dandy (also known as a beau or gallant ) is a man who places particular importance upon physical appearance, refined language, and leisurely hobbies, pursued with the appearance of nonchalance in a cult of Self.Historically, especially in late 18th- and early 19th-century Britain, a dandy, who was self-made, often strove to imitate an aristocratic style of life despite coming from a middle-class background.
In History have been many famous dandy’s:
> The first dandy in the world - Beau Brummel
> Spanish artist Salvador Dali
> Carlo Bugatti
->At the end of the 19th century, American dandies were called DUDES. Evander Berry Wall was nicknamed the “King of the Dudes”.LOL
