Any Hindmarch Meat and Poultry ToteOne of the things I hate most in life is having to have a joke explained to me. Usually, I’m one of the jerks that will just laugh right along and pretend that I’m brilliant and that I got it, and then Google whatever reference it was that I didn’t understand later (if I remember, which usually, I don’t. So I stay in ignorance). The deal with writing for an audience, though, is that if you don’t get the joke, then you can’t really pretend you do and write about a supposedly funny bag anyway.

The biggest problem I’m having with the Anya Hindmarch Meat and Poultry Tote, though, is that I’m not entirely sure that there’s a joke in the first place. I feel like there’s some sort of humorous intent with the sizing of the roosters and the meat/poultry dichotomy, but I’m not entirely sure. I could be entirely wrong, maybe the designer just thinks that multisized roosters are cute, and maybe I’m the only one left wondering if there’s some sort of clever joke that’s being told here. But if you SEE the clever joke, for God’s sake, explain it to me. It’s driving me insane. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $98.

    I don’t get it. I even went on NAP to see if it were perhaps made of special anti-bacterial material. Nope. Canvas. Which grossed me out at the thought of putting meat and poultry in….ick.

    I don’t get it. Cute enough tote if you like fowl, but def not understanding the joke. I’m loving canvas totes right now, but this is not one of my faves. Too bad – love AH normally.

  • deluxeduck

    i don’t think there’s a “joke” or any deeper meaning to it.

  • BeeDee

    Typo in the title :) Hindmarch and not Hinmarch. Anyway, no jokes for me as well plain ol’ canvas bag

  • ^all fixed! :)

  • Alexis Thorough

    That’s stupid. She annoys me.

  • Otter

    The joke is that this is a canvas bag for $98.00. Translated — “If you buy this bag, you are a dumb cluck.”

    I’m with Otter ALL THE WAY! I don’t wear chickens on my clothes and I’m not having roosters (IN CANVAS) on my shoulder. Especially when I can take that loot their asking for it and go to DSW for something hot and sexy.

    i dont think there’s a joke… but i think its cute..simple and casual. it would look perfect with a pair of jeans.

  • Sarah Julie

    I like the idea of cutesy animals on a canvas summer tote but roosters…? I just don’t think it works so well. But usually LOVE Anya so prepared to let this one go…x

    I’m with Sarah Julie. I love Anya Hindmarch so I’ll let this go as well.
