Who likes short shorts? We like short shorts!

Being out and about in summer weather exposes one to various sights of the season, some good, some not so. I like the short shorts look on women.

The upcoming July 4 holiday gives us a chance to celebrate our patriotism in our own way.

Some may wish to stay indoors to avoid the sun's rays on so much exposed skin, but there's no reason they can't stay fashionable.

Some may find that intellectual stimulation is increased when wearing apparel that may stimulate onlookers.

Some say the denim short-shorts fashion started with actress Catherine Bach as Daisy Duke on the old Dukes of Hazzard tv show. She gave these denim shorts a name, Daisy Dukes:


Celebrities take to Daisy Dukes really well, like Julianne Hough of Dancing With the Stars:


Heidi Montag:


Surely Cameron Diaz, the Bad Teacher herself, deserves two pictures for her excellence in Daisy Dukes-wearing fashionability.


I mustn't forget their namesake, Daisy Duke.

Catherine didn't invent short-shorts; remember the 1957 song by the Royal Teens?



And in 1970 someone changed the name short-shorts to Hot Pants, here worn by the fabulous Raquel Welch. Thou art swell, Raquel! -
