CNN reports that a town in Georgia has passed an ordinance banning baggy pants that expose one’s underwear, or hang more than three inches below one’s waist. Offenders could face a $25 fine, which we bet is ironically enough to buy a pair of baggy pants.
3 Questions That Arise From This Story
1. Who is going to get stuck taking the measurements to enforce this by-law? We hear the Men’s Wearhouse founder may be looking for work. “You’re gonna like the way you look when you pull these up,” he could say, “I guarantee it!”
2. Will this have any impact on the recent Alvin and the Chipmunk-baggy-pants-in-movie-poster phenomena? How tall are chipmunks anyway? Probably tall enough to get away with wearing pants sagging 3 inches below their waists in Georgia, we reckon!
3. Since wearing your pants while exposing your underwear appears to be illegal, does this mean wedgie victims will have to pay a fine? That seems kinda inappropriate in this new anti-bullying era!
