I’ll Bury Paul

While as a rule, what goes on in Jewdar’s home stays in Jewdar’s home, the missus and I have had a contretemps and now, as per the rules of reality TV, leave it up to you, the audience, to decide the outcome. I have, in recent years, found “Sir Paul’s”:http://yahooxtra.net.nz/music/0,,14538-7517995,00.html plastic surgeried punim to be disconcertingly disconcerting and I am completely creeped out by the way he looks in his current commercial for “iPod.”:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tD2mS4GAVBc Adding insult to my imagined injury, I am enraged by the fact that he’s wearing “Chuck Taylors”:http://chucksconnection.com/ with his suit, as if to suggest that, despite the fact that he is an ancient gazillionairre, he’s still a youthful pixie.

My normally better half, however, while agreeing that McCartney is somewhat disturbing looking, argues that I’m making too much of the shoes, since: “He’s Paul Freaking McCartney, he doesn’t have to prove anything.”

Please tell my wife she’s wrong.

What do you think?
