Missing: One Pair of Pants

2006_07_12hotpants.jpg
hot pants (pl.n.):
1. a clothing item that’s neither hot nor pants
2. a clothing item that’s outlawed in most countries
3. a clothing item that’s on par with short shorts
4. a piece of fabric (nylon, polyester, cotton, lycra, velour, terry cloth, etc.) that’s too small to become anything else
5. appropriately used in a sentence when answering the question: “where are your pants?”
According to Wikipedia, “the Spice Girls, especially Ginger Spice and Scary Spice revived the hotpants fashion in the 1990s.” As a wise man once said, “it’s like everything that’s gross is just a Spice Girl.”
NOTE: We also spotted a young woman wearing a hot pants one-piece wandering the streets of Toronto. Although our initial reaction was to scream “GROSS!”, we managed to save such comments until she was out of earshot.
