        lace becomes me, I’m often told

        you’ll be aware that the word *lace* comes from the latin word for noose – laqueus. same origins as *lacere* – to entice / ensnare

        so these are effectively “pulling pants”

          Urgh. My leaving cert Latin brain no workee.
          “Thus weeping he spake and gave rein to the ships as they glid along the Eubeoan shores of Cumae.”
          That’s all I can remember from the entire syllabus.

          As to Pulling Pants, I quote one of those Minions: “Ehhhhhhhhhh, NO.”

    We don’t get the weather for them but it won’t stop us from trying

    Just no…. There is no man (or woman for that matter) on earth who will look attractive in these. Im sure they are not comfortable either, fake lace rarely is…

    My initial reaction is Hell, No, – but if the ladies of broadsheet think this is a goer then OK, should it be with white socks and white runners or with doc martens?, either way first hot and sunny evening I’ll be down the Portobello sporting a powder blue ensemble, or is that baby blue?

            Greying undies from a stray black sock is nearly as bad as stains not coming off them

            I feel ill and grubby after simply reading that and please excuse me while I go scrub my skin raw.

            Who, as a lady, has always had perfectly stain free menses-days knicks? It’s the fellas I am worrying here, about their twenty-three skidoos after lack of wiping.

            I’d love to say they’re willingly whipped off me to that extent, but sadly not

          Multiple LOL’s there!

          Be careful not to rip it please ladies, it was $42, plus shipping.

          I should probably order some new white crackers while I am it.

          What would be the life expectancy of the gusset area on these I wonder (Guinness drinker).

          Don’t like so-called nude tights or underwear, they make you look ill and weirdly shiny. There’s tighty whiteys, but tighty nudies has a strange ring to it

      1. SOQ

        Sure that would look a bit gay- no?

        Just shove em down into the front of the briefs I suppose.

    I’d be slow to tell any of the gentlemen in the top photo that I didn’t approve of their sartorial choices.

      I believe the phrase is “to pop a cap” in someone’s “ass”?

        cue lewd comment about anyone of them free to pop in an ass
        not me, I’m a lady

      the small fellow in the centre of the first photo is a good sport (pink baseball cap backwards aside)

      a small friend of mine gets irked and prickly when I do that languid draping of arm around his shoulder. I only do it now when he’s trying to impress the ladees.

        I have a little friend I put on a chair when we are out dancing so I can see her, she loooovvvves that

          1. SOQ

            Kremlin Belfast used to have a very creative director so the go go dancers on a Friday all had at least one limb missing.

            Dancers were local LGBT, they weren’t had to find.

    It would have been a “nice” thing if it were a GAA County Team thing – I mean – they’re all fit? I’m going ahead and suggest Tyrone – they got hair-styles going on, etc..

    1. Janet, I ate my avatar

      they can take your comments away but they can’t take away the Friday feeling

      1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

        Exactly. Despite hearing the rain on the velux window I’ve had a nice lunch and a glass of wine. All good.
