I bet you dollar to donuts that Bryn Mickle of The Flint Journal had a lot of fun writing that headline and lede ;) http://www.mlive.com/flintjournal/index.ssf/2008/06/new_flint_chief_david_dicks_or.html - via Super Punch
Apparently sagging jeans is the new menace - last year, authorities in Mansfield, Louisiana, also .. er, cracked down, on the fashion phenomenon.
Anyone here understand why people wear jeans down their butt? It sure looks silly to me, but what do I know, I'm a fuddy-duddy.
Dicks's sagging pants crack down.
or at least thats why i would do it.
Me personally, I never wear pants, so my ass is always out on parade;)
The baggy pants thing has been around FOREVER, and they are JUST NOW getting offended by it?
It's such a huge part of the culture now. It's just asinine (hee!) to outlaw it.
Can we outlaw mullets while we're at it?
But you never know, suspenders could be fashionable next season?..
Hell, if they got the manpower and we can keep em away from the Krispy Kreme in Flint, send some cops up my way!
My city laid almost all of em off!
I come from a generation that has plenty to answer for in the fashion faux pas department (mullets, parachute pants, Valley Girls, etc.) and I still find baggy pants intolerable to look at. Maybe it's the function of each generation to piss off and look stupid to the one before it.
I've seen so many saggy-pants actually fall down, and I've seen even more people that are wearing them trip as they try to run. They're great fun for onlookers!
says it all :)
What? Did you just pull the race card on saggy pants? In Flint, Michigan? What the hell?
