We are in for a treat as there are two related quotes on J.Crew's French Hen Sweater (Item 14492; $95.00) :
Straycat (in this post):
...All I think when I see it is "put a bird on it"....ha! I'm from Portland, Oregon and it's a joke around here because we really embraced "putting a bird on it". ...
Life as a Cat (in her "Overheard: J. Crew sales associates puzzle over the French Hen Sweater" post):
HA!Store Associate 1: I don't get it. I mean, I don't have to get it, I guess, but I just don't get it . . .SA 2: It's like in Portlandia - you know, "put a bird on it"?
SA 1: Yeah, but that's supposed to be making fun of the whole put-a-bird-on-things trend, not advocating for it.
SA 3: Well maybe we're being ironically ironic?
SA 1: No, that just doesn't work . . .
