    Too funny!
    I never understood why,if you lived in a neighborhood where you may be forced to run for your life, you’d choose to wear such restrictive clothing. On the other hand if you didn’t look like a cool dude, you’d probably have to run for your life a lot more – but at least you give it your best shot without the ankle/crotch pants!

    I coulda told him that would happen.

    Uh-oh — I hope his lawyer doesn’t read this and decide to sue me…
