Retro Week: Rollin'

To quote Huey Lewis, we're going Back in Time all the way to the early 1990s in today's edition of Retro Week on the NaturalBlog. Always a fashion icon, what might Natty B have had to say about the trend of the day?

I think it's safe to say that tight-rolling isn't just for the cool kids anymore. We're all doing it now. Sure, there are some kids at school who still let their denim pantlegs flap in the breeze. But they're the hicks.

There's a lot of benefits to this. Not just the chicks, either. The tight roll ensures that no one will see I'm wearing white socks with wide blue stripes at the top.

School's in session, djs. And you just failed geography.

South Carolina -- not its northern cousin -- is the Palmetto State. If you are going to mock the South (and/or use the word "ergo"), at least have the decency know what you are talking about. Besides, tight rolling your jeans makes infinite sense in North Carolina where your heels are covered in tar.

Sic semper tyrannis.

Ok, call me uncool or out of touch (both normally accurate), but who is Natty B? I have to ask, because in my current home State Natty B, or Natty Boh, stands for National Bohemian Beer, a wonderful "low cost" brew, and its one-eyed mascot. And, in case NB was wondering, Boh knows baseball, beer and now a little bit about N Carolina. Next time Mr. and Mrs. NB decide to come catch a game at Camden Yards (it's that time), we will make sure we go down to the local corner bar to get a can before the game!
