Dead Stock

When a garment is left unsold and unworn it is called "dead stock" and remains intact in some mysterious land with tags attached until one day it surfaces from a warehouse or a vintage store... I purchased a pair of dead stock pants for my latest Shakespeare show... solid proof that Polyester is evil...
The same company responsible for Agent Orange, Round-up weed killer, and various other products of the future making the earth uninhabitable for humans helped to develop Polyester and in fact guaranteed it for a whole year...


One year seems rather unambitious for this Polyester. The archeologists of the far future are likely to be digging it up in a Poly-plastic-strata that will form to mark our epoch on this planet.

Gracie & I "removed" a jeans/poly women's set a couple of weeks ago. Then Dad & I went to Imperial Beach pier and here was a little fisherman lady wearing the same thing! Eeek! It must have the half-life of uranium!

The first time I ever heard of Monsanto was because of their role in developing wildland fire retardants. The second time was in a documentary that kind of eviscerated them for their impact on the North American agriculture scene. Either way, that garment should probably be left unworn. It's like the Twinkie of clothing.
