There’s old women doing it, uncles and aunties doing it, folk singers folking it, guitar strummers strumming about it.
What is it? what can it be?
I have excavated the Internet to find these folks doing it in action, but a short disclaimer may be needed, so read on: -
- It isnt rude nor is it offending anybody.
- Its done in fun and not in bitterness
- No animals have been harmed in the search of these images.
– People of a nervous disposition will possibly feel enlightened by these following images.
- No streets have been closed off / flags / banners or weddings have been arranged in, involvement with these images.
The first person I found strangely in a pose that tickled me was a guitar strumming chappy that once sang about getting away: -
I was surprised that Mr Kravitz was found to be in such a peculiar pose, not only the fact his eyebrows have been tinted green it was also the way his hand meets his ear in such a delightful way.
He was not the only person seen caressing his lobes. On my tall travels searching the timterweb I came across a hammer, not of the funny tasting albertz type, this one was a sledgehammer. This in no terms shocked me as his surname in no relation to religious reasons is Gabriel: -
His little green goatee was also so peculiar. First green eyebrows and now goatee beards? Ummm I sense something strange was afoot. With this knowledge in mind I continued my dredging through the deep, deep electronic pacific image ocean.
Something caught my eye, ever so slightly as I gazed upon the many images in front of me, this time it was something animated cupping ones ear. I was surprised to see a pixar animated star cupping his lug’ole: -
It was the one and only Mr. Fredricksen from the animated hit UP. (To confirm there I said Fredricksen not Fernando Ricksen, so no need for projectile vomit.) I noticed that his glasses had a splendid green coloured rim, much like a teenage mutant ninja turtle would have.
I gathered that no more was it a coincidence the ear cupping had caught on from somewhere but why the colour green? I could not work it out so I dug deeper.
I found another ear cupping event this time it was from across the pond: -
Ear cupping was running wild by now. It was unbelievable to find such an icon of wrestling cupping his ear and especially whilst wearing green pants. This summed up my complete investigation, ear cupping and the colour green seemed to come together as one, but as my image investigation drew to a close I found the icing on the wedding cake: -
I was in utter astonishment, an actual prince Charles ear cup! This will really send special union jack Wills and Kate sales plummeting downwards before matches at Ibrox now.
Ear cupping or not, things get said, people do things, people explain themselves and if they have done wrong they get punished.
Cupping an ear or two a crime, folks from the other side of the Clyde? You’re having a laugh!
