Louisiana politicians weigh in on one of the most serious issues of our time. House Bill 1640 by Rep. Derrick Shepherd would make it a crime to wear sagging pants that show too much of the wearer.
"I don't relish the idea of seeing the beginning of people's pubic hair," Westwego City Councilman Glenn Green told the House Criminal Justice Committee on Thursday.
With a little art or just plain luck a little flash of pube is sexy. Often more so than another full body nude shot of one of those perfect people that appear in certain kinds of magazines.
"I don't relish seeing the beginning of the crease of people's buttocks. And I don't enjoy watching young men letting their sexual organs show through their red or black silk underwear," Green said.
I know all sort of people who think a glimpse a treat.
Much more serious aesthetic fashion crimes need to be addressed: people who wear lime green pants or those white shoes that look like they were made of plastic (often with glaring faux gold buckles).Not to mention the fashion crimes of Louisiana's own elected officials.
As H.L. Mencken once said when asked why he stayed in America: why do people go to the zoo?
