Via Lileks, one of the most nightmare-inducing images you’re ever likely to see:
I am High Pants, terror of mono-headlighted Urban Rail! Now I come to feast on YOU!!!

    1. I’ll still take that over guys wearing their pants so low that several inches of their underwear is on view.

    1. I read Lileks’ Bleat first thing every morning—when I saw this I thought I’d hit the wrong button! You have NO idea how relieved I am…

    1. I used to find trolley cars that looked like busses unacceptable but I think it’s sort of cool now.

      The guy looks like Charlie Chan.  “Man without relatives is man without trouble.’’

    1. There!  You see what you end up with when you leave the buses parked during the hurricane?

    1. Look at Lileks’ picture of the only woman senator.

    1. its not that his pants are high, its his 3/4 length jacket that creates the illusion. I like the photo – reminds me of Sydney Greenstreet, which immediately brings to mind Peter Lorre, who puts me in mind of……

    1. Lileks makes a good point about the now-unthinkable: politicians taking public transport.  I’ll never forget seeing a bit of old newsreel footage of Churchill, back around 1910 as Sec. of State for the Home Office, getting out of a cab at Westminster, and rummaging in his pocket to pay the driver.  Of course, you have to have a city in which it’s possible to reach the seat of government by public transport, which eliminates Canberra.

    1. speaking of low pants, how DO those chickies keep those muffin-pants hipsters on? Do they have velcro or something?

    1. kae — If you were wrapped that tight around a hotcha hootchie’s hips, would you let go?

      er, Richard, not sure what you mean. Anyway, these are below the hips, way below the hips. I used to wear hipsters (Amco jeans) in the 70s, and we didn’t need velcro then – they were on or just above the hips.

    1. Almost as scary as Quasimodo.

    1. Yeah, Crash, Amco Peaches. “It’s an Amco kinda world.”

      I used to get Pythons from JayJays, real cheap, before stretch jeans were invented! They were tight.
