  • Women's Trouser Day

    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?

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

                          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?

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

                                Recently a number of new members have seen fit to question the competence of those of us who have been here for years. Off the top of my head, I can think of these:

                                The last paragraph tickled me. Flat would likely still be secure if mortice lock was engaged.

                                Anyone ever know a tenant to put the mortice lock on though? ...

                                Whether you voted remain, or leave. Leave won the day.

                                Whether mainly by racists/bigots or not. Leave won the day.

                                Some moot that leaving the EU may be thwarted by parliament. Theresa May is holding up EU citizens in UK as bargaining chips.

                                Theresa May seems determined to hang on to power.

                                Your predictions are invited as to how long she can survive.

                                I give her until August/September, when she'll cynically call another election, thinking she can dent the student vote. (She's wrong).
