Coin slot fad

On my commute home yesterday evening, I spotted 4 different young ladies airing their coin slots. The problem for me is that the style remind me of overweight truck drivers. Very unappealing. This isn't a new fad is it? If it is, I relent and say "bring back the belly buttons instead".

I think he means the other end.

Anyhow, this trend has been around for a decade or so. Can't say it bothers me too much, depending on who's coin slot is on display.

Re: Coin slot fad

I've also noticed an increase in the sighting of Whale Tails, some more acceptable than others. The one I find odd is the girls that wear J-Lo style under the hip jeans but sporting a lovely muffin top - do they honestly feel they look attractive?

Having had to Google it to understand the term I can't see how anyone would have wanted to go around intentionally with that look.

That has got to cause some kind of chafing/yeast infection.

Re: Coin slot fad

Help, people. I can only vaguely imagine what Whale Tails are. (Don't force me to google, please.) A Coin Slot I've seen on Canadian Dude's SNL vids thread, thanks. Camel Toes, I'm quite well acquainted with.

What's a thread without pictures, Mr Phos and Mr Wu?

Re: Coin slot fad

Now you got it, the whale tail is the thong showing up the pants.... usually covers the coin slot.
