“In 2004, a bill that aimed to outlaw so-called low-rise jeans in Louisiana was rejected, as was a similar proposal in Virginia in 2005, which would have charged violators $50 for deliberately showing their underwear.”
Every action has unintended consequences. The result of this law is clear; the criminalization of underwear will result in people skipping the underwear. Workers beware, as they’ll be legislating next against the ‘plumbers crack’.

About criminalizing everything: I see the day when jaywalking will draw the death penalty – the convicted will be used as organ donors.

Someone else here read Larry Niven. See “Jigsaw Man”
