     A young man bought a tight pair of fleeces,

 And their stranglehold filled all the creases,

But the fit was so thin

 That he couldn't begin

     To pump blood to his bits ... and his pieces.


     Well, they made him look chic as expected,

 Though his girlfriend was feeling neglected,

Cuz from belly through bum,

 His poor junk was so numb

     That he just could NOT get it ... erected.

* One of my weaknesses is expensive clothing, and my pet peeve is the new "slim fit" men's suits and clothes - I hate the way they look and feel, like a little boy who can't afford new clothing and outgrows them. I can't WAIT 'til they go out of style! * ;o)

("The World's Greatest Toy" is the motto and ad line used by the makers of The Erector Set, which I had as a boy and remember fondly ... though the word later took on much "grander" meaning, lol)

G'day Gregory … fashion can have its drawbacks. Back to some baggy jeans I reckon - thanks Gregory - Lindsay

LOL - Indeed it does, Lindsay ... the things we sacrifice to look "acceptable"! (Thankfully I've always been a "loose and comfortable" kind of guy ... except maybe my teens in the 70's, lol). Thanks for stopping by, my friend! :-) <3
