Webbie Spotlight: Skirts are better than pants

Thursday, September 25, 2008 Jonette 5 Comments

As seen on A Dress A Day: A simple list of why skirts are better than pants:

1. Drawing your pants legs back from someone in disgust as you pass them is insufficiently scornful.

2. Studies have shown that wearing skirts is 90% effective in preventing VPL (visible panty line).

3. Ditto for "plumber's butt," "whale tail," and "camel toe."

4. Ruffles on a skirt can be over-the-top glamorous. Ruffles on pants are only acceptable if your name is Mary, and a little lamb follows you everywhere you go.

5. It is impossible to smuggle someone in -- or out -- of prison, a masked ball, a hotel room, etc. by hiding them under your pants. (Plus, there is no such thing as "hooppants."

6. When you strap a gun to your thigh in pants, you lose the element of surprise.

7. You don't have to have skirts hemmed differently for flats or heels.

8. Twirling in a pair of pants results in 87% less happiness.

9. The word "skirt" has both a singular and a plural form, usable by all ("I am wearing a skirt today." "Instantly Mrs. Bagnet put some pins into her mouth, and began pinning up her skirts all round, a little higher than the level of her grey cloak.") The word "pants" has a singular than can only be used by fashion-industry people ("Designers are showing a high-waisted, wide-legged pant for fall").

10. Skirt blowing up, revealing underthings? Sexy. Pants falling down, revealing underthings? Humiliating.

  1. Nice :) I like skirts better too.

  2. ain't they grand? :)

    I remember reading a saying that went "a good article should be like a lady's skirt: Long enough to cover the subject, but short enough to keep things interesting." Ooh-la-la! ;)

  3. So we refer to THAT as "the subject" now? hahaha

  4. Nice list! *lol* Thanks for sharing it:D

  5. @ yanka: sex -- the other thing philosophers like to think about. XD

    @ clair: my pleasure! Glad to see you enjoyed it. :)
