So, you're saying that today's low-rider crowd will be wearing the same styles in four or five decades-- when it'll be granny belly buttons & butt cracks?

Should we be buying stock in piercing & thong companies?

The men with the high pants are not getting that much shorter.* It's just that they're still wearing 1940's-1950's style pants, which have a much larger "rise" from crotch to waist.*
We may not be beating a dead horse...........but rather a dead crotch........did I just say that?

Aiyeee!

Actually I dont mind the low riders at all.

As long as they dont appear to be encasing a large blueberry muffin...

I heard on the radio today that "muffin top" is the latest slang for those who bulge over their tight low riders.

Huh...I had heard the term was 'blueberry muffin'...maybe a minnesottter/kahliforneyah thing. Same approximate deal though!

Nothing more appealing than going to the 'cheap' supermarket and catching an eyeful of the 40-somethings who have been partying hard since they were 14, well painted in runny makeup trying to cover the sags and marks (along with that "I've done a lot of meth" look) and hair thats been dyed 500 times too many, wearing an outfit that most 14 year olds couldnt fit into, let alone would they consider wearing, with about 25lbs of unnecessary flesh hanging over the sides of the pants...completely obscuring where the waist of said pants might be.

Hell, they might not even be lowriders for all I know...
