Evidently, today in 1923, the US attorney general ruled that it is legal for women to wear trousers whenever and whereever they want.

Was this a good decision?

1. Before 1923, did they have to wear them even if they didn't want to?
2. Anyway, 1923's only just before peak-time TV viewing most evenings.
3Q: Are trousers singular or plural?
3A: Singular at the top, plural lower down.
4. Good decision? It skirts the issue, does not a-dress it, and 'slacks moral fibre!

That's why women athletes can't catch their breath- it comes in short pants.

It was Ogden Nash who wrote this:

Sure, deck your lower limbs in pants;
Yours are the limbs, my sweeting.
You look divine as you advance,
But have you seen yourself retreating?

If this thread were sponsored by Corby, would they have a Press Day first?

Also see the Trousing Act 1988, creating the Assured Shorts Tenancy.

Very good. You are really having a go at this one.

It's not fault, as I inherited the sense of humour- it's in the jeans. That's why I drive people Mendel.

No, I stopped the taxi driving after Jodie Foster.

That's a bit Jodie Marsh.

What sort of name is "Jodie" anyway, when it's at home?
"Jeudi" makes sense, today at least, but I think that "Jodie" is an anglicised version of Yoda. Do backwards like Germans speak they?

When he died, were they worn at half-mast?

Yoda say "Do, or do not. There is no 'try'." I think from the Empire Strikes Back

I'm sorry that those Empire Strikes are back. If only the Empire Unionists weren't so bolshy.

For trouser purposes, the answer's two.

Ever since i can remember i have always had an urge to travel back in time - to the early to mid 1920s for reaosns i have never been able to explain, until now . . .

But not an urge to:
a. capitalise the first-person pronoun; nor
b. spell "reasons" reasonably.

Conan Doyle led us to believe that you were The Great- must have meant detectively, not orthographically!

That's it; you're a detective, even if your spelling's defective!

No Jeffrey, this time travel escapade is pretty much the only urge i have ever and will ever have - its medical you see, an official diagnosis. So capitalising "i" and being reasonable in my spelling of "reasons" has never even crossed my mind, let alone been initiated an urge of any sort.

But yes i am a detective and that is why i´m here . . .
