Everyone within 100 miles: go to this place in the shortest dress you can get your hands on and walk back and forth in front of the mayor's office.

Mr. Coffee Nerves 2007-06-13 12:47:16 PM -I tend to think this is a stupid fashion fad, but hell, I came of age in the 60's-70's, so I don't have much room to talk.

However, to your point, I get a huge kick out of seeing the foot chases where these asshat, gang-bangin' idiots have their pants fall down and trip them up. It's like natural selection in action...

It would be awesome if every male in this town wore nothing but dresses in protest of this fool.

What would be even more awesome would be if idiots stopped dressing like clowns and tried looking like respectable, civilized human beings.

sepuku2, ksdanj

Actually, you bring up a really good point here. Will this law be enforced equally for all people, or is the crazy old lady in the trailer park, and the beer-gut plumber both going to get a free pass on this? If I were someone in the "targeted" demographic for this insane law, I'd be calling the cops on *EVERY* instance that they see someone's tighty-whities, and if they don't enforce the law equally introduce them to their nice civil-rights attorney.


No, it won't be enforced on the plumber with a beer gut or the crazy trailer trash lady... because everyone wants to see their asscracks. Their free pass is that they have the most beautiful asscracks of the world and should be above the law for said asscracks. Asscracks, asscracks, asscracks.

Isn't it sad when cousins marry and then let their offspring run for public office?
 
2007-06-13 02:29:09 PM  
While I agree that the baggy pants look like they took a crap in their pants it is still their choice as to what to wear and not something that the elected officials should regulate. On the other hand I am looking forward to the next fad to be Skirts for men.

Thanks for the visual. I'll be vomiting in my trash bin if anyone needs me.

Those people in the community have the right to determine how people represent them. It's the price they pay for living in a society. Good for them. There is no right to baggy jeans.

Absolutely, I think anything that mild annoys you should be a felony.

It's about time the government stepped up and fulfilled their responsibility to make decisions about the way people dress. Im pretty sure that was in the constitution. No? Really? You mean the government has no right to make these kinds of decisions? Huh.

2007-06-13 02:30:31 PM  
How are the thugs supposed to run from the cops with all that
baggy crap hanging down around their knees?
 
2007-06-13 02:30:33 PM  
I am assuming that the mayor also wants the young men?(boys) who will be wearing dresses to also wear pantys, bras, wig , and make up. And dont forget to tuck.
 
2007-06-13 02:30:34 PM  
I hope this mayor has to personally pay for the legal fees to have this ruled unconstitutional. It will be ruled that way, it was a waste of time to pass it.


People that pass this kind of BS should be personally liable for all the resources need to prove exactly what everyone already knows, you cant ban pants...

I did watch a guy try to cross the road with a bunch of groceries and no belt and baggy pants. I was laughing and I noticed the people in the car were laughing too. While there are plenty of bad ideas in fashion in every generation, I am glad I didn't live through this one. Enjoy the droopy drawers Gen Y. Sucks for you.

Reading into it a bit more...This is a STATE WIDE law?!!! Holy shiat thats ridiculous. I didn't realize that Louisiana was still so backwards. Is it still illegal to buy a dildo down there, or have they finally overturned that crap?


Um. No, and no. I got my vibrator in New Orleans, thankyouverymuch, and happened to see a few in a store in Baton Rouge this weekend.

Hasn't anyone else looked around that site? does that look like a reputable journal to you?


What is this perception people have of Louisiana? Like it's a third world country down here or something..... oh, wait, I gotta go untie the gator from the treehouse and walk him. Lemme get outta this here pirogue.

Good idea, but for you Farkettes who are on the West Coast (which means it's too far to travel to Louisiana), I encourage you to do this in front of my office instead.
 
2007-06-13 02:31:40 PM  
as long as these pants keep tripping up criminals
for easier police capture, I say let them wear 'em.

Louisiana is such an ass-backwards state. I lived there from 1980-1987. Even then there were white mardi gras parades and black mardi gras parades. Fast forward to 2000. I am working for a telecom company headquartered in Lake Charles, LA (since moved) and meeting with the Senior VP of Human Resources. He is listening to what sounded like Zydeco in his office. So I asked, "Is that zydeco I hear?" He immediately replied, "No. Zydeco is what them darkies listen to. This here is chanka-chank!" Senior VP of HR. Oh yeah.

That said, I saw some dumbass crackhead attractive and successful African-American on the street with obvious pubic hair bush displayed.

Should be no fine, just long, pronounced, laughing derision. And maybe a smack uposide the head from his papa.

Captain_CooL,

We do.

Under a charge of robbery or larceny.

In related news, all use of Subway Restaurant's Jared has been similarly banned.

OK, I know Louisiana is backwards. I know change comes slowly there, and sometimes not at all. I know their legal system is based on French civil law rather than English common law, like the other 49 states, so they obviously march to the sound of their own Cajun drummer. But it's simply absurd that they haven't yet switched over to the dollar yet--I mean, shiat, Louisiana wasn't even part of the United States yet when we got our independence from England. Maybe nobody has told them about what happened in 1776 yet.


You broke my sarcasm-meter.
 
2007-06-13 02:35:17 PM  

I think it's a toss up on what I dislike more the sagging and bagging pants or
Lousey-anna.



Okay, it's Louisiana! I dislike Louisiana more.

Boy, are the ladies going to be pissed when they find out an exposed bra strap is a $250 fine.

I was born and raised in Louisiana, and I can assure you the ladies wouldn't be pissed because none of them bother to wear bras....unless they need a brastrap to put their pack of smokes in while carrying their kids.
 
2007-06-13 02:35:47 PM  
I though it was out of style already.

I'm all for a reasonable law that prohibits exposing underwear (thongs of course being the exception).

Now get the fark off my lawn.

Um, there are black krewes and white krewes and ladies krewes and mens krewes and the krewes are what put on the parades. The only-black and only-white krewes are throwback krewes that have been around over a century. The krewes put on the parages.

1998 called. It's wants its "outrage of the day" back.

Are the kids in this town so lame that they still wear baggy pants? Do they hide their 8-tracks in the pockets?

Darkies? I haven't heard that in awhile. A lot of these southern states really haven't changed, except for the city areas. I remember driving through South Carolina once and seeing these estates with the delapidated slave quartes still on the grounds. Amazing that they won't just tear those things down. Perhaps if the baggy pants thing won't pass they could ticket everyone with very curly hair.

No, in the spinners on their cars.

baggy pants and boxers I can stand dealing with. having my organs liquified by 4000 watts of bass from a mobile assault vehicle is something else entirely.

Fenrael,

Lake Charles is Texas, and in no way sense of the word Cajun. Despite what those rednecks say up there.

No Okra in the Gumbo, though a pretty decent sandwich at Darryls. I am from Houma, raised in New Orleans.

shiat, I remember when they had a town celebration when the mall opened up the food court. 1997 or so when I lived there.

And to whomever say you could not buy a dildo in Louisiana. I have seen them for sale in the french quarter for years.

Baton Rouge has them? Wow, always a little puritannical there.

OLD NEWS. This was voted down in 2005.
