The Force of History

If cowboys had worn tutus
instead of cheap, uncomfortable,
all-too-permeable,
all too clingy
de Nîmes jeans
we would now all be wearing tutus.


'Jeans' is an anglicisation of Gênes, French for Genoa,
whose sailors wore trousers made from the coarse cotton material
 produced in the southern French city of Nîmes (hence 'denim').

If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.
If tutus are outlawed, only outlaws will wear tutus.
If in-laws our outlawed, only outlaws will have in-laws.
