Do you wear your pajamas out in public? We’re asking because if you live in Caddo Parish, Louisiana, and you want to run out to the mall in your jammies, you might soon be breaking the law. That’s because local politician Michael Williams is proposing an ordinance that would prohibit the wearing a pajamas in public places. “If you can’t [wear pajamas] at the boardwalk or courthouse, why are you going to do it in a restaurant or in public? Today it’s pajamas,” Williams told the Shreveport Times. “Tomorrow it’s underwear. Where does it stop?”
Indeed, and now with the proliferation of Pajama Jeans, it seems that Williams has a growing scourge on the horizon. And that brings up a potential problem for Williams’ proposed plan: just what constitutes pajamas anyway? Williams says it covers anything sold in the sleepwear section of a department store. But what about Zoobas? People who sleep in their ratty old sweatpants?
Shreveport is no stranger to dress code restrictions. The city’s already instituted a “no saggy pants” ban and issued 31 tickets against violators last year. [Time]
