One of THE coolest concepts I have ever come across. A man and woman dressed in disguise sitting at typewriters, You stand in line for your turn. You’re next. They look you up and down then start typing vigorously. A paper. An appraisal. It may seem a bit shallow and ruthless.. but that’s the point right? Maybe not to take it all so seriously. You know?? It’s like a parody. Our looks, how we see ourselves, etc. So what if they give me a low appraisal?? Or a high one? I would hope I won’t mind either way.. heh.
But I love their undisclosed identity. Who knows who and what they really look like?! Are they married? Are they brother and sister? What’s their real hair color? Eyes? Does Jill Bumby like to wear makeup? Does Gill Bumby eat his eggs sunny-side up? Their ambiguity makes the concept so much more alluring.. I think!
But judging by the appraisal they gave my friend it seems like they have a pretty accurate way of judging a person by their looks. For most, probably. Maybe not spot on but they get the idea about you. The best part is that Gill slyly passed my friend after the fact and whispered to her, “9.6.” Gahhaha!
All I know is I hope when I’m in NY next I can get an appraisal!
