'No Ifs, Ands or Butts'

A sign how far the ACLU has come the past century that they're now busy defending the right to wear your pants around your ankles.
The city of Opa-Locka voted unanimously Wednesday night to fine people $250 if they don't pull their pants up.

Opa-Locka city leaders decided to expand the current ban on saggy pants to include a $250 fine or 10 hours of community service for those who refuse to tighten their trousers.

Opa-Locka City Commissioner Timothy Holmes led the charge against the sagging crowd, saying the low-pants practice intimidates the public, provides a distraction in schools and is a blight on the community.

"Dress like somebody. Be somebody," Holmes said. "It's time for us now to try to teach our people how to dress."

But the proposal is a shot below the waist for those who proudly display their underwear in public. Saggy pants proponents said it is unfair to judge them by their clothes.

"I scored a 24 on the ACT. I'm going to college, and I sag my pants. What's that mean?" said Brisk Moe.
It means you look like an idiot.
