The Escapist had an article today on what will take over from pirates as the next great fad.
(Due to happen as soon as Pirates of the Carribean 3 is out and done)
Their candidates were Hobos, Zombies and Cthulhuoid monsters (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hp_lovecraft)
Personally, I'm hoping for hobos. Not only would that solve my whole fashion issue from yesterday, but I think it would also work out from the whole working more swearing back into every day usage angle.
