need to get a grip

Can’t blame the Republicans for this :wink:

Keep the government out of our pants!

DEL. ALGIE T. Howell Jr., a Virginia Democrat, visited a Juvenile and
Domestic Relations Court not long ago and apparently came away shaken. It
wasn’t the crime, abuse, depravity and suffering that got to Mr. Howell. It
was the pants. Or rather the underpants.

It seems that Mr. Howell, a 67-year-old Air Force veteran and past PTA
president from Norfolk, hadn’t kept abreast of youth fashion –
specifically the craze for pants that ride so low on the hips as to expose
a strip of boxers or briefs. His revulsion at glimpsing the offending
fabric was so profound that he did what lawmakers tend to do: He wrote a
bill. According to Mr. Howell’s legislation, a $50 fine would be the price
for anyone who “wears and displays his below-waist undergarments . . . in a
lewd or indecent manner.” “This bill is simply about respect for others,”
Mr. Howell said. “It has to do with character building.”

Butt I don’t think it will pass… I’m sure the plumbers union will fight
it :wink:

Re: need to get a grip

My wife just told me about this bill yesterday.

At first I thought, good, I’m tired of seeing that stuff. That thought
quickly went to…but I definitely don’t want the government legislating how
people should wear their pants.

That just seems a bit overboard.

Do you live in Virginia now, Rodney?

Re: need to get a grip

The full article points out that one loophole in the bill is that people
can avoid violating the legislation by not wearing underpants at all.

Re: need to get a grip

hahah that is hilariousl Though I guress they didn’t want to fine people for
wearing bathing suits. It’d be like 2005 meet 1600. Its strange to think
I’ll be lviing in Virginia next year. How interesting this shall be, low
pants and all :wink:

Re: need to get a grip

A Virginia Democrat in any other state would be a Right leaning Republican
so it’s not surprising to me in the least. Virginia is a hotbed of
Evangelical Xtians and Right wing loons to the point that even the Democrats
there are more right then center.

Cant help it…

The two most swinging foxes had the hots on for us and are coming here
tonight to let us hold on to their big American breasts!!!

Why not? There’s no other pair of Czech brothers who cruise and swing so
successfully in tight slacks.

Because we are two wild and caaaaazy Czechoslovakian guys!
