Shorts.

Tort.

There is a limit to good taste but certainly no limit to bad taste.

The shorts are a tort, but the socks are a crime.

I don't get it, but then I'm a guy (``You're not going out dressed like that, are you?'').

I personally broke the Bermuda barrier for airline travel back in the 70s.

Surely we have room at Gitmo for one more?

Hell, I'd be in favor or releasing Khalid Shaikh Mohammed if we have to make space.

Gross, isn't it? Ann, dont you think these "kind of people" should be banned from flying?
hdhouse, what are the real limits to bad taste here?
PI, can this type of indency be prosecuted? I think so too.
SMG, I think you are right - there is a place to put people who violate our space like that!
Yes, all! Lets join to condemn this public behvior. Lets support the notion that mr hairy-legs-on-a-plane could have, nay should have, grabbed the camera and stomped on it, or better, slammed it back into the face of that elitist asshole across the isle. That of course would be Michael Reynolds.

I'm glad we all feel the same way here. Some of the "other" posters are such total snobs.

I wouldn't want to see that guy with his shirt off.

Yeah I'll take fat girls in mid-riffs to that any day.

Wow

Please, we're just asking Mr. Chewbacca to wear some slacks.

If that's "snobbishness" then we're further down the road to perdition than I had realized.

OK - older guys with hairy legs will stop wearing shorts when women of a certain age stop wearing sleeveless anythings.

Ahem...

From the comments at the link:
You related to Althouse? People who say "Ewwww" are not to be listened to for advice.
A reader, but apparently not a fan.

zzRon said...

Yeah, the guy has ugly legs. At least he had the good sense to not wear flip-flops though. I can handle men with hairy legs and women with bulges, but I dont trust or want anything to do with the sicko's (male or female) who enjoy having flip-flops on their freaking feet.

Re the comment on his comments, "fu#ktard" is a quality term. On occasion it sums and expresses a paragraph thought in a word. Heavily overused, but I would never take issue with the term itself, the usage is always at issue.

SMG:

All "we're" asking?? Thank you Mr. committee chairman. The point I was making that you evidently missed is that Chewbaca's clothing transgression was nothing compared to the elitist snob across the aisle. Here is what he said about it:
"I did not seek the subject's permission because I didn't need it. The subject cannot be identified from the photo. And I don't earn money from this blog, therefore, no permission would be required even if he were identifiable. However, again, the subject is not identified and can only suffer embarrassment if he recognizes himself (unlikely) and then chooses to identify himself."

Ann, copy this and use it in reply to snob accusations when you cruise the streets for bare leg photos.

Yes, I'd like the gentleman to purchase some slacks and perhaps pick up a sense of humor for you.

Extra large.

Thanks a lot for taking a picture of me on the plane in my shorts! I asked you to put that camera away. But no, you had to keep taking close-ups of the cleavage on the buxom cutie asleep in the seat next to you.

And when I mentioned it's rude, you leaned over (drooling, I might add) and snapped that shot of my legs. Well, eat your heart out. At least I wasn't the one wearing the bib overalls (you spilled mustard on yourself, by the way).

And why did you keep taking pictures of those of us waiting in line for the bathroom? What was all that clicking when you were in the men's room?

Michael Reynolds said...

Bib overalls? Nope. Zanella flat-front slacks, a Nordstrom shirt, loafers.

Of course if I'd been traveling with my kids I'd probably go to jeans, a North Face shirt and sneakers -- the kids occasionally lose control of a beverage.

Under no circumstances would I show such contempt for the aesthetic concerns of my fellow passengers that I would show up with my aging thighs exposed. You also wouldn't see my bare midriff, my armpits, or my nutsack. But then, I'm a snob. Think of what a wonderful world it would be if I just loosened up a bit -- you might have the opportunity to enjoy a coast-to-coast flight staring at my ass crack. Gosh, think of the fun.

This is a great example of propaganda

Dockers and a polo shirt.

Inexpensive, easy to take care of, comfortable, easy to mix-and-match.

Life is not always difficult.
