Smile time

(Well, it made me smile.) South Midlands police force has been officially warned against wearing thongs or bright boxer shorts. A retired officer relates that in his day (now?) the uniform material was "so serge" that many of them took to wearing pyjama bottoms. - presumably under their uniform! (Heard on Radio 2 this morning.)

That must be the sight.

I can understand not wearing thongs with scratchy material, but bright boxers? The ASDA boss may not be new for long!

I always knew that it was a mystery what went on under a policeman's helmet, now it seems the same can be said for trousers!

Sorry, but I never did quite get that thong thing...like wearing a wedgie all day!

In looking back at several of your posts .... you make me smile - because you like to smile!

Must confess, never gave one thought to what might be under a law enforcement officer's uniform.

NOW?

I've been trying to work out how they're going to enforce "no thongs"......

Can't be caught with a panty, underwear line under those trousers!

Be grateful they don't go the full monty that would really be something out of the box.

Thanks everyone
I enjoyed your comments. I had thought of a play on knickers and knickers, but thought that might be a little too obvious, as is born out by the fact that you all avoided it.
Much appreciate your responses.
