Funny how two items can perform the same basic function with completely opposite effects. Take, for example, actual sunglasses:


Protects your eyes from light, not aesthetically reprehensible, make you look pretty cool.

Then consider the disposable sunglasses that fit under your regular glasses that you get from the eye doctor after he dilates your pupils way too much, thereby ruining the rest of your day:

Oh my god, what's wrong with you?

Protects your eyes from light, makes you look like a mental patient, causes people on the street to either (a) laugh or (b) say with extreme pity and condescension “You look like you could use a high five.”

Guess who wasn’t together enough to remember to take her real, non mental patient sunglasses to the eye doctor today? And guess who couldn’t actually use a high five?
