Sweatpants — Threat or Menace?

Sweatpants -- Threat or Menace?

Super Bowl star Plaxico Burrris shot himself because he was wearing sweatpants.

Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich has threatened Freedom of the Press, our National Pastime, and Democracy Itself. What was he wearing when arrested? Sweatpants.

What do Hip-Hop gangstas, Rap thugz, and mass murdererz “design,” endorse, and wear? Sweatpants.

What isn’t “proper attire” at dance clubs?  Sweatpants.

What do gang bangers wear for identification (“Don we now our gang apparel“)? Sweatpants.

Hoodie-coordinated shoplifting slacks? Sweatpants.

The only deviants who don’t wear sweatpants are exhibitionists.  
Sweats are a no-fly zone.


Happy Birthday-on-bail, Governor Blagojevich (52 years; no time off for good behavior).
