New underwear colour regulations went into effect at midnight on Saturday the 21st. What a cunning legislative ambush. Woke up to be informed by the newly established Department of Domestic Management that I have to abide by new underwear colour regulations. Apparently the department is not impressed with the current selection of colours. I was informed via an unambiguous statement that I will now have to surrender to bright yellow, and other florescents 😯
Luckily I was able to get an appointment with the head of the department and grovel for a reprieve. Firstly I pleaded that my current selection of colours were driven by the fact that they were the only ones on sale. I also humbly begged that I be exempted from purple and pink hues. Mercifully Mrs Cerno who is the chair person of the department relented. In exchange I agreed not to file a fundamental rights petition or apply for asylum in Burkina Faso.
The positive side of this Saturday morning surprise is a blog post without any effort on my feeble neurones.
