    Yuck

    I can't stand a turtleneck.  Not only are they ugly but I can't stand anything around my throat.  I feel like they are choking me.

    Love'em

    I love turtleneck sweaters. Always have. As long as they are soft. I do not however condone the use of actual necks of a turtle for anything. Poor little slow things.

    Do not try to contain the neck.

    The neck has to breathe. Scarves are ok but turtle necks are suffocating. And they're an eye sore.

    I Love, Love, Love Turtlenecks

    I love turtlenecks because:   If you are a girl, they make your boobs look bigger. If you are an old girl, the turtleneck hides the turkey neck. They keep you warm. If you are a guy, they look damn sexy. They make you look arty and intellectual, maybe even athletic...

    I Am a Turtleneck

    I took the blogthings "What Kind of Sweater Are You" test and the result was, surprise, I am a turtleneck.  I LOVE turtlenecks!  With jeans, they are my winter uniform!

    Mitch Hedberg

    I think comedian Mitch Hedberg summed it up best when he said "...turtlenecks are like being strangled by a really week guy. If you wear a turtleneck and a backpack it's like a week midget is trying to bring you down all day..." and I couldn't agree more.

    I Have Always Hated These...

    they're ugly, and they suffocate me, and apparently, they also suffocate you. I remember having had to wear them frequently, and I would be tugging at my neck all day, thinking "I'll have to throw up soon, I know it". I just hate them. I do discourage the use of them...

    I am not the person I used to be, in every aspect this could be taken. Re-read and think, then breath and feel the relief of no longer being that person you used to be.
