Just keep those pants on. OK?*

Aaaah, Florida... They just passed a law making bestiality illegal. Why was this not already illegal? Makes one wonder...
Also passed by the House and Senate Wednesday is the so-called "droopy drawers bill" (SB 228), will will force students to hike up their pants while at school.

Students caught showing their underwear or butt crack could face suspensions and other punishments.

When I was going to school in Florida in the late 60s, students would be sent home for wearing sandals, boys for having hair long enough to touch their ears, and girls for not wearing a dress.

It's funny that it's called the droopy drawers bill, because the phrase "droopy drawers" is something my mother's generation came up with (or maybe even her mother's generation). What do you think?

This darling goat could possibly be affected by both laws, if she could pass for a 'student.'

Pic snagged from the Nanny Goats in Panties blog! Yes, that's correct!

*It just so happens that this is being posted on No Pants Day, First Friday in May (not you, Florida).

"Droopy drawers" used to mean a baby with a saggy diaper full of poop, as I recall.

Is bestiality a big problem in Florida? Hmmmm.

I remember my mother using that expression all the times about my little cuz's who were in diapers..
if Bestiality wasn't still legal in texas a lot of seniors wouldn't have dates to the prom.

As a nearly life long Floridian, it's a given that we can easily make the weird & strange news items. It wasn't so much that bestiality was legal, it just wasn't illegal before.

I graduated H.S. in 1968. Pantsuits hadn't been invented yet, and there weren't girls jeans. My first pair were men's Levis made of canvas stronger than tent material. My friend & I jumped into the pool to get them to "fit". We were BLUE from the waist down and it wasn't from being cold.

I remember those jeans. You had to break them in! They were so stiff at first they could practically stand up by themselves. You were supposed to wear them wet and let them dry on your body.

Yep and they took HOURS to dry and weighed 20 pounds wet. An experience I really don't miss.
