Goths, I love 'em! I even used to be one for a bit (well, I was a Didi-Goth for at least 6 months). But there's one thing that troubles me about our cheery friends: what to do they do in summer? All that makeup, long black leather and rubber must get very sticky. I think we should show our respect for these poor unfortunates, struggling to stand out from the vanilla crowd despite blazing temperatures and sunshine that puts the rest of us in shorts and vest tops. Join me in celebrating the majesty of the Goth, who, eschewing any practicality whatever, still has the commitment to don a full length leather trenchcoat, stupid New Rock boots, and half a Superdrug counter of makeup. All hail the Hot Goth!

At least he looks suitably dejected while watering those very very colorful plants.

I would like to note that while the goths and the tr00 black metal kids (he's wearing an emperor shirt) do have quite a bit in common in terms of their dress sense, they ARE two different subcultures. Still, it is an awesome picture.

I agree with Amelia, he's a black metaller not a Goth (mind my bf is both), but it's still a funny image. :P
