    And now you have baseball caps that are askew like the gang bangers except they've just moved the bill to the side.

    I don't understand why you see so many young men wearing the shorts way below the crotch and the giant tshirts... that aren't gang bangers.

    I had to read between the "lines" but I think we was just to busy to change. Nice catch.

    Took me a second look... but yeah, pretty funny.
    I'll wear mine backwards on occasion, but not when it's needed forward.
    No lugs, no care.

    Have you ever given one of those gangbangers wanna-bees a monster wedgie? There's enough distance between the crotch of the pants and the actual crotch that you can get some good momentum going before the two meet. It's a power wedgie they won't forget any time soon.

    Backwards is a convenient place to store the brim when I've got my eye to my camera.

    And the hat stays on better when it's windy.

    Or if the sun's behind me it saves my neck from turning red.


    In this case, it's a fail picture waiting for the proper caption.

    he's an idiot thats a slave to fashion.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Road Nazi Survival Tip: if some idiot can't even put a ball cap on straight, they can't drive a car. Learn it. Remember it. Live it.

    Trust me on this. The accuracy of this predictor is uncanny.

    You can't see whether or not a driver has a hat on until he/she is too close to do much about it.

    It's called urban camouflage, and keeps the gangsta predators quiet.

    My nephew is a 'thug familiar', doesn't gangbang, but hangs with 'em. I have to tell him daily to pull his sh** up, he's not on the street in my living room.

    OK, now I can reply to the OP....

    There were actually only two choices there -- 'slave to fashion' and 'simpleton' are peas in the same pod.
