    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.
