Baggy Pants Bill

I have been intrigued for some time by the popularity of wearing ones oversized trousers in such a fashion as to expose your underwear. Senator Gary Siplin (D) a state senator here in Florida has decided to legislate against this peculiar taste in fashion. Why would someone choose to wear their pants mid thigh and go out in public? Is it choose one.

Recent weight loss?
Theft of your belt or suspenders?
Hand me downs from 300 pound cousin?
Pride in your spider man boxers?
Just a simple form of rebellion?

I don't know what the reason is but I would wager my money on #5. It sort of goes along with a 70 year old man ( or woman) with tatoos in wierd places. Tongue rings. Nipple rings. Belly button rings. Nose rings. Etc.

I go back to an earlier post rendering the following opinion. I believe that if we were to legislate that anyone with an IQ of below 100 advertise the fact by wearing a badge that states that they are an idiot the ACLU would go ballistic.

However people voluntarily wear their pants down around their knees to advertise that fact. When we see them coming towards us on the sidewalk we can step to the other side of the street to avoid breathing any infectious exudate from their nostrils. We are, therefore, very fortunate that people so advertise their moronic tendencies.

What other plausible explanation is their for such an odd expression of fashion choice? I have a friend who says that the trend comes from the prison population. I will let you connect the dots on that sequential logic. That ain't a pretty thought.

Why don't people wear their underwear on the outside of their clothes? Or better yet on their heads? Now that would be a serious fashion statement. Believe or not there are many people who choose to wear no underwear at all. Britany Spears comes to mind. We all know that there are some big hairy bats flying around in that belfry.
