This New York model commented: "Whatever. Fashion today is more important than anything else anyway. Isn't it?"

Following a recent speech in Egypt claiming the US as “a force for good,” US Secretary of State, Mr. Mike Pompeo, has said he is proud to support a new line of clothing.

This new line has already been recognized all over the globe for its glistening see-through qualities, which hint at underlying qualities in the wearer.

In fact, this style does have a historical basis, although perhaps never as brilliantly sparkling as it is today.

Suits, casual wear, dresses, even footwear are encompassed in the new line, now causing excitement in government leaders all across the globe.

Indeed, the “force for good” meme in this style has been widely applauded (laughter, whistles, shrieks, cheers, mutterings, explosions) all over the Middle East.

But this "force for good" style does not outwardly feature camo, tanks, rocket fire, missiles falling on villages, or chains of explosions destroying entire communities, or a nuclear holocaust.

Nor millions displaced, mutilated, killed, evaporated.

Instead, this fashion is accompanied by warm smiles, as with Mr. Pompeo, and is really stunning.

Plus the garb is comfortable and assumed to be beautiful.

As to whether there is some sex appeal in the garments, this can hardly be denied, as in the very nature of what is being revealed.

Even a few extra pounds here or there, or the somewhat fading tendencies of an older figure inside the clothing are obscured beneath the brilliant message the clothing itself supplies.

Somewhat perplexing, however, is what to call this fabulous new style.

Universities worldwide have turned to the problem, with one professor, Dr. Keensley Marshburn, at last seeming to clarify the issue.

“Really,” Professor Marshburn has said in an address to the global academic community, “this is not a new style of clothing.”

“Indeed,” the Professor continued, “it goes all the way back to the ancients—once known as the EWNC phenomenon.”

Students frowned and fumbled. Colleagues appeared dazed until one of them gasped out—

“You don’t mean The Emperor Wore No Clothes?”

“A sweet little poetry,” the Professor responded, “for naked self-congratulation and ego.”

However, manufacturers of this style will not bend to any suggestion of impropriety in this revived EWNC clothing line.

“Nudity, after all,” one of them stated, “is very much in today as a vital and political expression of the human being.”

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
