Like cockroaches following a nuclear holocaust, some stupid interior design ideas just refuse to die.

Over-oestrogened twin bed bedroom circa 1967. Note the preponderance of pink, the bizarrely random toys (“Santa brought me a koi and a gorilla?”) and the picture of a big hairy ass on the wall.

Over-oestrogened twin bed bedroom circa 2007. Note the preponderance of pink, the bizarre grouping of agoraphobic bugs, and the table that will cut your arm open if you accidentally elbow it in the night.

You’d think that the photographic record of the first room would have scared off later designers, acting as a lighthouse to warn the ships of good taste away from these particular conceptual rocks. But it seems that those who ignore the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them, or at least to sleep in bedrooms that are girlier than Trixie Belden in a ballerina costume on a sugar-frosted pony.

In both cases, we can only hope that the big pointless canopy things eventually fell down and smothered the wretched idiots who commissioned them.

Dude, how do you find these things? Do you just type in "pink+oestrogen+death" into Google?
