This is meant as a dig at farmers. He’s too sophisticated to be in anything but a tux.
The last time I was in a tux, I went home with a lady who I still haven’t gotten rid of yet. (Hi SWMBO!)
Whenever I start feeling uppity, she reminds me that she put the mom curse on me, multiple times, to get remarried if I were to leave her. I’m NOT putting on one of those things again.
I’ll take being a farmer in my comfy clothes any day over being a Baldwin, or whoever he’s supposed to be playing. I actually feel sorry for people like he’s portraying. I wouldn’t give up this life for anything resembling theirs.
