Indecent Exposure, Defined and Illustrated, Helpful Chart

Take a moment to ponder the implications of this image. This sort of informational graphic requires the kind of reasoning that can only seem sensible in a bureaucratic environment, idiocy aforethought, we might call it. It requires a regulatory judgment (gasp! even legislative perhaps? oh, for a crack at that brief…) which gives definitions to the degree of buttock exposure that constitutes ‘indecency’. Lastly this was professionally rendered, requiring someone to explain and hire an illustrator on the basis of his skill at exposed-buttock-rendering (cheek-aroscuro?) and even a round of proofs and revisions – ‘oh no, this is entirely too much buttock’ or ‘yes, I think you’ve captured the essence of the offense nicely here.’ Sigh…

    I wonder if there’s a plumber’s exception to the above rule?
    We all know that one cannot become a journeyman electrician or card-carrying union plumber if one doesn’t wear pants that conform to the third image (far right) of the above indecent exposure chart.

    You know they say, there are some things you just can’t legislate against. Dare I say, that this may be one of them.
