I always find it hilarious when a large organization somehow approves an inevitably disastrous idea. It makes you wonder how, somewhere along the line, not one person raised his hand and questioned the decision. Maybe these people were too scared to question their corporate executives. Maybe they knew good and well how terrible the idea was, but they enjoy seeing the media eat their dickhead bosses alive. It’s always a crapshoot as to how these ideas make it from paper to production, but when they do, it’s a glorious occasion.
Somehow, the White Sox came to the conclusion that handing out white ponchos with pointed hoods before their game against the Los Angeles Angels last week was a solid idea. I mean, a stadium full of fans wearing white, robe-like ponchos with pointed hoods can’t possibly cause any harm, right?
Sure enough, it began to rain during the game. The fans put on their ponchos and turned the stadium into quite the hilarious spectacle.
If you haven’t quite figured out where this is going, here are some pictures to help you out.

Thanks for the screw up, boys. Your failure helped make my Monday morning slightly less miserable.
