The Moral of the Pants Story



There is one, of course. "Honi soit qui mal y pants."



And forthwith, I award the office of Knight or Lady Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Pants to all who fought in this combox combat for the honor of ladies and their chosen garb. Wear it with pride.

    (And yes, Ian, this means you, too. I know you're only trying to do your Christian and chivalrous duty, even if I find your way of doing it rather trying. If you moderate your tone and your goals, your sincerity will doubtless win you many battles. For example, try using the phrase "Skirts are prettier than pants". And beware of bad guides like Williamson.)

    Dear Banshee,

    Very, very clever. I'm proud to be part of the Order of the Belt (?).

    Dear Banshee,

    Oh stupid me, in going back to the post to find the official name of the Order, (The Order of the Pants) I inadvertantly automatically sent the previous message.

    Nevertheless, I am still proud, if somewhat chastened, to be part of this Order!

    shalom,

    Steven

    Hee!

    Btw, I've had a hard time getting people I know (well, non-SCA people, anyway) to get this joke. Apparently, the subset of those familiar with chivalric orders and Norman French slogans is not a large one. (Who knew?)

    My dad, on the other hand, was in horrible pain as soon as I said it. So the apple does not, in fact, fall far from the tree.
