Louisiana town outlaws “saggy trousers” (frankly, I can’t really disagree with their motives, though I doubt it’s a matter for legislative action while the Vice President gets away with telling Congressmen to comment physically impossible acts):

Town attorney Ted Ayo explained that the ordinance “expands on the existing state indecent exposure law by adding underwear to the list of forbidden exposures”. He elaborated: “This is a new ordinance that deals specifically with sagging pants. It’s about showing off your underwear in public.”

Unsurprisingly, some residents have complained the clampdown is aimed at black citizens, since ” low-slung trousers are fashionable among hip hop fans”. Broussard dismissed the claim with: “White people wear sagging pants, too.”

    Joe has some shorts like that. When I see them, I’ve surprised him (once) & pulled them up, hard. He objected. He now won’t let me near him when he wears them. He doesn’t go outside in them, he wears them after he has his shower in the evenings. They should be banned in public. I don’t want to see someone’s shorts, thong, or bare butt. Nasty!

    I’m with you. I’m not interested in seeing–er–men’s underwear.
