Ode to Lycra

Lycra, lets face it - it seems to be everywhere these days. It appears that its meteoric rise in modern society has outpaced perhaps the pragmatic need to regulate its use......after all it can be quite a dangerous little commodity in the wrong hands. We've all seen it and been witnesses to the aesthetic abuse this material can inflict.

Dont get me wrong, I'm not saying we should go so far as to legislate, over regulate or even ban the use of lycra through our legal system. Clearly that would be going to far, however I do think that manufacturers, retailers and end users of this product owe us a duty of care to use it in a manner that does not adversely affect others' quality of life.....

In order to satisfy the requirements of all stakeholders, whilst protecting ones rights to use this material in a safe and practical manner, we at STIYPASI would like your assistance in the drafting of an industry code of conduct for the safe and socially responsible use of lycra. I have had a stab at a few preliminary clauses:

  1. Where possible lycra shall be worn with shorts over the top.
  2. Lycra is not suitable work attire, EVER.
  3. Manufacturing of lycra in larger sizes shall be banned.
  4. Fines shall apply to all caught wearing lycra, without shorts over the top, found further than 2m from a bicycle.
  5. Multi coloured lycra will only be available for professional sporting events.
  6. Cafes will now introduce a lycra ban to stop those sweaty fat fucks that like to sit on Norton Street on saturday morning after a ride.....yes this is personal bitches, i cant digest my food because you make me sick.

You assistance in drafting this code will be greatly appreciated - STIYPASI management.


  • All those planning to buy lycra must be measured by a professional, and meet all set standards for lycra wear.

    Oh yea... wear underwear... gross.

  • One of the grossest examples of lycra abuse that I ever saw was a woman, a good size 20, bent over to fix her shoe in a Bathurst shopping centre. She wore white lycra bike tights (which had gone all thin and manky) and underneath knickers festooned with yellow stars. It was a veritable galaxy across that butt. Shudder.

  • Thou shalt not wear leggings particularly those made of lycra as a substitute for pants/skirts/jeans/shorts whilst wearing a short top. Ewww. Why am I seeing this everywhere I go? Damn you Supre. Damn you.

  • Good look. Bike shorts are GAY. Unless, of course, you're actually riding a bike.

  • "Manufacturing of lycra in larger sizes shall be banned." And... squeezing into a smaller size will cause the lycra to rip on contact with the skin.

  • And bogans shouldn't be allowed to wear it. At all. Regardless of bike use or not. They can be nasty.

  • Every teen should attend a heavy skin lycra party to deterrence future usage :)

  • Good post--any fabric that has the word, "lie" in it can't be trusted.

    The only fabric more reprehensible is Naugahyde, which is really cruel to the Naugas, if you ask me.

  • Oh, men of the small penis should at least pretend to have a larger package by shoving a sock down their lycra pants, so we aren't subjet to staring at their lack of dick...

    Reporter (the following abbreviation writes down) : You whether the view that talks about case of beautiful to handling an official prosperous?
    Plum: Above all, our enrollment manages regulations to be not perfected. To the appraisal of player identity, concerned personnel has responsibility. Next, investigation has certain difficulty really, we return arbitral without independent sports orgnaization now. The 3rd, be located in out-of-the-way Xinjiang team, already threw 3 early or late for basketball 100 million, if knock sb. down at one stroke, I think pair of league matches overall situation are adverse.
    Write down: Why does this sports season give so much trouble?
    Plum: Above all this and prepare for war the big setting of the Olympic Games is concerned. Because want to prepare for war Olympic Games, so we raise this sports season stable, interim guiding principle, did not roll out new more significant reform measure further. The 2nd, a series of problems disturbed the popular feeling of league matches, make each square cohesive affinity and centripetal force drop. For example each club digs a person each [url=]cheap nike shoes for kids[/url] other, do juridical job to wait a moment. Originally we been consideringing the issue of professional judgment, because of Olympic Games centre of gravity, can lay aside only. The 3rd be league matches specialization administrative team builds lag. Quality of administrative team, personnel cannot get used to the development of league matches, active system carries out true professionalism to bring an issue to us again. CBA league matches develops today, had arrived a crossroad.
    Write down: How to continue those concepts, carry on go down?
    Plum: Already more capital is in now enter CBA league matches ceaselessly. Of outside capital enter, explain league matches market is valued on one hand, the government that also gives us on the other hand brings a challenge. Of each respect intervene, can appear a lot of expect are less than, the issue that our existing regulations system does not follow to go up. I am very so anxious now, the situation is very grim, the challenge is enormous.
    Write down: Hear NBA wants to establish Chinese company immediately?
    Plum: Yes. NBA had talked for a long time with us, next week they are about to announce to establish Chinese company. To this we are impossible close the door on, but the league matches that we can hold to to have our. NBA has 50 old histories, how to use the family's experience and dominant position of level of management, will do our league matches do greatly strong, this is the issue that we face immediately. In other words, the great progress of CBA league matches is probable after 2008. But, are we ready?
