The Costume 'Bag and Douche Transference

This pic is an excellent test case for a discussion on the notions of Douche Irony. By now we’ve all witnessed the scrotey ‘bag busting his ungodly and disturbing charms at a costume party. But does the “costume” trump the initial impulse of the douchebaggery itself? I guess what I’m asking is can we overcome the base impulses of what I term “The ‘Bag Within” through the use of irony, situational context and a claim to self referential intertextualism.

I would argue that expression of ‘baggitude, even in ironic form, operates as a form of externalization of internal douche trauma much in the way sarcasm operates more as aggression than humor. In this way the ironic ‘bag becomes the actual ‘bag simply through the affectation of the attempt. The ironic effort to coopt the tropes of the real under cover of the parody transforms the literal into the figurative, but retains the impulse of douchebaggery as its base cause. And in so doing, the figurative becomes the actual through simple semiotic transference.

So in summation, my argument is boobies.

Boobies.
