"When an asymmetrical lady walks in the city asphalt in her skirts she has two strikes against her, but she's still in the game. When an asymmetrical lady walks in the city asphalt in her slacks she has three strikes against her and she's out. Even when lovely, lovely lady becomes a city slacker she stoops to folly. And a lady in slacks should never stoop. Well, hardly ever. Beyond city limits there's method in the madness for a thin-hipped gal who likes to move around. But summer in the city is difficult enough without pant-ing women. There's no philosophy in it.
And, as a derriere pensee, it don't look good."
It Shouldn't Happen to a Dog
