Drunk Women Should Wear Nice Panties
Suffolk, UK police are telling women planning to get plastered to at least have the decency to wear nice pants.
Women going on boozy nights out have been warned by police to “wear nice pants” in case they fall down drunk in the street. A Suffolk police safety campaign magazine shows pictures of young women slumped on the ground next to messages urging them: “If you’ve got it, don’t flaunt it.” “If you fall over or pass out, remember your skirt or dress may ride up,” the magazine says. “You could show off more than you intended — for all our sakes, please make sure you’re wearing nice pants and that you’ve recently had a wax.”
Somehow, if a woman has passed out drunk on the sidewalk someone, one would think her appearance would be among the least of her worries.
UPDATE: I’m informed by colleague Chris Lawrence that when Brits say “pants” they mean “panties.” The campaign makes a bit more sense in that light.
