    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.

    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 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 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...
