Pants-Happy In The Old Dominion

Proteinately-Wise Jeff dials in on a piece of legislation wending its way through the Virginia Assembly that would impose a $50 dollar fine on anyone walking around with pants hanging low enough to display a sizable chunk of their undies.

Jeff mocks this as prudishness. It strikes me that it's not that so much as a kind of Guiliani-ish smack at anti-social behavior, akin to banning the wearing of gang emblems for example.

Eh, I don't know. But at least for the moment it won't affect me too much. The oldest Llama-ette wears a school uniform dress most of the time, and when she doesn't she almost invariably wears tights. The five year old has a violent dislike of wearing pants under any circumstances. And once you get the three year old into a pair of them these days, she doesn't seem inclined to lower them at all, even to go potty.

YIPS from Steve: Fortunately, this was, errr, dropped yesterday. Here's the link to look at the folks who thought this was a good idea.

Here at the ol' Barnes & Noble we can't stand that "below the ass" style because it's too easy for the amoral little fucktards to drop CDs down their (probably rank) pants.
