Some politicians view their work as the fulfilment of a vision. A personal mission; if not to bring prosperity to the people then certainly their own pockets.
If Montana’s Republican Representative David Moore’s vision is to be accepted, then lately it’s all about yoga pants.
Mr Moore, funded by taxpayer dollars of course, decided to go after Instagram’s clothing item of choice after collecting and storage some precious outride after the state hosted a Bare As You Dare naked bike ride in the summer of 2014.
According to the Montana Standard, the proposal would expand indecent exposure law to include any nipple exposure – including men’s – and any garment that “gives the appearance or simulates” a person’s buttocks, genitals, pelvic area or female nipple. This would also have included beige clothing in similar conditions. The Standard reported that after the bill’s passage hearing (in which it was unceremoniously kicked to the kerb ‘amid giggles‘), Mr. Moore remarked, “Yoga pants should be illegal anyway.”
Quite why Mr. Moore remains such a staunch enemy of yoga pants is unclear. Was he the victim of a laundry prank from a lithe assassin? Does he somehow think Yogi Bear is involved in all of this? Or is he just an idiot? At BaDoink, we’re all for yoga pants!
