Never trust a straight guy in a plaid suit. That’s the official uniform of a cartoon con man.

I’m not just gonna sit here and let you slander Andre 3000 like that, man should be on Stone Mountain instead of the confederate ass holes

Fair. Straight white guys.

As a straight white dude who owns a plaid suit, I can get behind this. Don't trust anything I say when I'm wearing it. I will try to sell you technology you don't need.

What is it about plaid in suit form that brings out the inner grifter in us? I’ve never even worn one and I’m terrified that I’d end up starting a cult or selling a small town a monorail

I think it's conditioning. We've seen so many dishonest used car salesmen wearing them that we can't help ourselves.
