Saving the Children from ... the Refrigerator Repair Man?

Appliance repair men take notice:

By a vote of 60 to 34, the Virginia House of Delegates has approved a bill that would fine people $50 for wearing low-riding pants that show off their underwear in a "lewd or indecent manner."

I presume fines are doubled if an actual butt-crack is revealed.

UPDATE:  Looks like the (especially the bottom photo).


  1. Doug Murray:

    The text of the bill only refers to underwear. As for butt cracks, no underwear, no fine.

  2. Tony Iovino:

    Nothing better for them to do? Virginians should get their money back from the legislature for that "day's work".

  3. markm:

    Maybe there's another law already on the books that would deal with low-riders and no underwear. However, I foresee the author of this bill coming in for plenty of ridicule - if his opponent at the next election describes it as "a law banning underwear", it wouldn't be distorting the truth as much as a lot of campaign ads do...

    U.S. "butt-crack" = U.K. "bum cleavage".
