things that make you go hummmmm...

I was reading a tread about this guy who never takes off his cycling shorts even to work and it got me thinking about things that make me go hummm...
Ever noticed how speedo wearers are never the type who should waer one, the belly pots, the hairy backs.. speedos are for Olympic swimmers.. They are are good concept.. put a guy on the beach with a tight outfit and surf and drink all around him, but the truth is it never works out that way.. speedos are like the skin on the bologna, it permits you to see things they dont even show you in x-rated movies but not on the type of body you would ever care to watch. you wouldnt wear black marks under your eyes like a football player if you dont play football... let's leave the proper attirement for the proper occasion.. I wouldnt wear my tennis skirt and bring my tennis racket in the office, ( although it might be a welcome idea to my co worker)
Imagine a doctor out with family in a restaurant with one pint of blood in my hand and his surgical mask ordering a 12 oz sirloin cooked rare please. Imagine a date with a non cycler bring you to the movies waering spandex.. hummm.. So unless you plan to start waering your suit and tie while out of the office to ride your bike, Id say lose the spandex shorts while In the office.. Anyone else ever see things that makes them go hummmmm?

Hey, wearing leather pants can have other "excuses"! Like being a metal fan!
That said, I don't wear leather pants. They're not comfortable at all.

Many resturants have stopped searving rare foods because of the health hazards. The last thing they want is a lawsuit. But good point either way.

Like kids that havent even touched a soccer ball in there life, wear soccer jerseys. Not because they support the team or are from that country, they just like the jersey.

I thought the guy meant he wore it under his normal clothes. But that may have been wishful interpretation on my part.

I assume that's a protection device for bikers who hit their top tubes from time to time.

It may be different where you live, but in the summertime, well over half the girls/women here who wear sort shorts out shopping, simply shouldn't.

Kids (at least they look like they're under 18) that wear shirts that say "Pornstar" on them or wear sweats that say "Juicy" on the butt. Usually, it's, "Hmmm...are they morons or are their parents sh!theads?"

A corndog air freshener seems funny, I don't know where I'd use it. Could slide it under my bosses car seat, just for fun (his wife is vegan).


Sure can't understand this item, seem to agree with the observer in this photo.

I had a rat named Harley, does that qualify?

//Does anyone remember the song, a very obscure one, where the recurring line was '... and he/they loved his/they're Harley"?

It's about this young guy with a Harley who eventualy finds this girl and they have a kid... who of course they name Harley. A neat song, only heard it a few times and can't remember the name of the song or the artist. Anyone.

There is a lawsuit going on in this area over that. Some girl got sent home from school for wearing a "Pornstar" shirt (she's in like 6th grade or something). Her whitetrash parents don't see what's wrong with that and now want to make a lot of money through a lawsuit.

I don't get it either.. let's make tougher laws to protect our children from child molesters who could move in next to you, let's put a lock on the computer so they kids don't get into internet porn and warn them from internet predators... but then let them wear clothes that screams sex all over it.. think about it, an 11 to 15 years old kid does not buy it's own clothes..the parent does.. I agree, can you spell ignorance? looks like I can! hehe

I think it's a freedom of speech and freedom of expression issue. Essentially, wearing clothes like that doesn't harm anyone and should be protected by the constitution. However, parents also have responsibility over their kids and should make better decisions about all facets of their upbringing including what they wear, what they watch, who they play with, etc. But if the parents themselves aren't that responsible, it's hard to expect the kids to be any more responsible.
