DELCAMBRE, La. (AP) - Sag your britches somewhere else, this Cajun-country town has decided. Mayor Carol Broussard said he would sign an ordinance the town council approved this week setting penalties of up to six months in jail and a $500 fine for being caught in pants that show undergarments or certain parts of the body.
Broussard said he has nothing against saggy pants but thinks people who wear them should use discretion. "It's gotten way out of hand out here," he said.
Albert Roy, the councilman who introduced the ordinance, said he thought the fine was a little steep and should be more in the $25 range, but he still favored the measure.
"I don't know if it will do any good, but it won't hurt," Roy said. "It's obvious, and anybody with common sense can see your parts when you wear sagging pants."...
Just to get your goat Johnny Y. People all over the world wake up in the morning, say to themselves, "You know, there is a guy whose name is John Yurich, well it's not really John Yurich, but for the last two years or so he has called himself Johnny Y. What doesn't he like? He doesn't like people who wear their baseball caps backward. So, I am going to wear mine backwards today just to bother him." That's why they do it Johnny Y. Yup, that's why they do it.
Now honestly, they really do it so that the rain doesn't run down their necks into the back of their shirts. That's the real reason why they do it Johnny Y.
I mean, no, that's not why. They really do it because they don't want to get a sunburn on their necks, making them even more redneck then before. Better to get a sunburn on your nose than on your neck.
I think I will invent a double-billed cap, so you can ask why people wear those too. They'll wear those so as not to get a sunburn in the front or the back.
