    Anybody foresee a future where they get picked up for vagrancy and spend the night in a cell with some real “99%ers” ?

    Careful Jarvis. Cons used to wear their pants like that to indicate they were ‘available’.

    A popular myth, but that’s all.
    It did originate in prison, but from poorly fitting clothes and lack of belts.

    Snopes isn’t always 100% correct.

    Perhaps, but they are 99% of the time.. [correct, that is]

    I now work in a state prison for male felons, and the pants are in fact pretty droopy b/c the side pull tabs at the waist are usually broken, and they no longer issue cloth belts.

    Sorry, everybody – had to google 99% to understand this week’s strip. Had to google sagging pants, too, but I must admit I still don’t understand that one…

    The real joke is that Jarvis is in the 99%. He is ordered around by a snotty rich kid and does not have the money his employers do. His life is only a pretense to being moneyed.

    No toilet tissue, is the issue, why pants are low, it’s a drying process.

    Just got back from my morning walk in my usual attire of all black clothes, it’s cold and dark out so I had my hoodie up

    Even at 51, that look draws suspicious looks and folks steer clear when they see me coming

    My guess is that dukedoug has the right take on this one. Looking like 99%ers, Jarvis and Sedgwick will probably be treated like 99%ers…. —Much to Sedgie’s consternation, of course.

    @Doctor Toon

    Do you have a safety vest or some other type of reflective gear? Would hate to lose you!

    A safety vest would take all the fun out of it

    I be careful

    Wait, maybe that’s his shirt underneath that’s showing…hmmm, can’t decide.

    I don’t think it is the sagging pants. Offensive and you know why.
