Now I’m not one to create alarmism, but with summer in Australia almost here, I feel it’s my duty to warn the men in your lives. Board short lengths are on the rise, along with the fear of knee exposure amongst the male population. Now I know what you’re thinking. Real boardies cover the knee. You can surf in them, ride your pushy down to the beach in them, heck — you can even head up to the pub for a beer in them. But this season short shorts are here to stay, so it’s only a matter of time before you find yourself in the foetal position on a change room floor. Come on. What’s the worst that could happen — that people will see you have knees? Well, I guess you could find yourself on the Dads in Short Shorts blog.
