THE THONG SHOW (Updated)

Spring has come and gone, the daffodils popped up and so did something else – women’s thongs rising above their low waist jeans, pants, or skirts. Now, we're in the dog days of summer and the thong show continues.

What does this have to do with etiquette? Etiquette includes dress code, what’s appropriate and what’s not. Showing a garment wherein all roads lead to you know where, begs attention from the fashion police. It’s one thing to see a mass of thong wearers on a beach in Rio, but it’s another thing or sight to see on the streets of any community.

We’ve covered (heh) sagging pants, when silly men show us their drawers. Yvette wonders what came first for daily public viewing, men’s underwear or the thong? We’re not sure but one thing we know, enough is enough. Anyone have a gong handy?

Women's undergarments are way out of my realm of expertise, but I would imagine that the thong was invented as a way of circumventing the panty line, and if that's the case, I understand its practical appeal. Therefore, I think the problem isn't with the thong itself, primarily, but the fact that the women who are flashing their thongs are either wearing their pants/jeans/skirts too low (or too small), or their shirts too short.

It's the flip side of boys showing their boxers (regardless of age, any male who does so is still a boy) -- the only reason the undergarments show is because the wearer has his pants or jeans too big. It's all about proper fit, and I daresay that 90% of the current population don't give much consideration to "fit", in its truest sense of meaning, at all.

Since the modern dress codes are reflective of the fact that our society is going to hell in a handbasket and the parallels to the end of the roman Empire cannot be ignored, it’s about time that someone of taste has commented on the subject....when are you going to comment on the spate of tasteless tattoos?

This rear view is not only trashy but if you look closely, she put her thong on wrong! It looks as if it's on sideways. Easy to mess up if not careful. As for the baggies on the boys, I heard that this fashion started in the jails where the belts were taken away from the prisoners. What a lofty image to make fashionable! Whenever I see someone wearing their pants like that they loose at least 20 IQ points in my view.
