Kill Poncho

What is it with ponchos? The damn things are everywhere and I just don't understand the appeal. OK, maybe if you spend your day sitting on the back of a donkey or wandering mountain paths with a pan pipe, they might make sense. But, here in Wisconsin, draped across the shoulders of a busy fifty-year old woman, they are totally ridiculous. They aren't warm enough to wear as outerwear, except for maybe three weeks in the spring and another three weeks in the fall. They are totally impractical if you drive a car - always catching on things, impeding movement and making it impossible to find the seat belt latch. Sling a bag over your shoulder or try finding your car keys while balancing a bag of groceries? Forget it. Ponchos are a fashion RESIST if ever there was one.
