Commercial Fisherman Goes Funky

Seen on Lazy Way Lane, a Honda Metropolitan scooter with a pair of white rubber boots on the floorboards.
The striking thing about this picture is the boots, normally worn only by tough commercial fishermen in Key West. Short white rubber boots are the badge of their trade. And here we have a pair painted with flower designs? Hmm... I wonder what the owner might have been drinking at the nearby Schooner Wharf Bar after a long day on the water...Shirley Temples?

Ahhh, Yes, the old "Painted Boots on Scooters" syndrome.
Didn't Freud do a paper on that?

Mercifully I don't think he wrote one on hetereosexual men who prefer pink. However I expect to be surprised.
