LAist tipster Jennifer pointed out a Flickr photo series in two parts entitled Ridiculous Los Angeles. Imagine our delight when we found photo after photo of bad breast jobs, stupid boys wearing winter jackets and ski boots when it's 85 out and musclemen smoking cigarettes on the street.

Basically, Malingering (the photographer) is a paparazzi, but he's chasing us regular schmucks instead of Brangelina. Part of us is appalled, but we can't decide who to focus our indignation on, Malingering for taking these photos, or the fashion victim morons who think polka dot hair cuts are appropriate ever.

I know what you're saying. "People should be able to express themselves however they want. What kind of world do we live in that we can't even wear a belly skirt in public without it winding up on some guy's snarky photoblog?" Well, LAist agrees with you completely. This is why we live in a dusty old ramshackle mansion, screening old silent films of ourselves day in and day out.
