Tough Look of Today Much Different Than When I was Growing Up

Todays Tough Look Pacifier Replaces Cigarette

1950-1960’s ToughLook Cigarette



When I was growing up in the 1950-1960’s you just knew by looking at someone if he was a tough sort..There was no mistake about it. There was diffenitly a”Tough Look”..We all  could  spot it right away. The cigarette dangling from the lips,hair slicked back, a pack of Luckies rolled up in the  shoulder of  their tee shirt. You knew not to start with that person.

Today I was watching Mixed martial arts on T.V. the fighters looked like milk toasts, Mild mannered “Clark Kent” Style  But make no mistake about it..they can kick your A-s .from here to next week and in a matter of minutes can do plenty damage.I witnessed  one of these “Milk Toasts”give someone a colliflower ear in less than a minute.  Years ago nobody whould even have the  given a remote thought they were though guys.Times have changed. The dangling cigarette  was a tough look today the cigarette has been replaced by a  Pacifier.

Even among woman we all spotted as the old folks would say was a trampy look. Everyone knew what a cheap Nafka, Cordva, Boutona looked like. There was absolutly no mistaking when anyone was in the precence of a real whoa  (whore) .

Todays woman have a  sweet demure look about them hardy the trampy look of old even when they been around the block a thousand times .Yes times gave changed. Bottom line don’t mouth off to nerdy looking guy..

My own tough look back in the day…
