In this small town, only one man dared to defy the ban on jorts.

Is that a baby swing??
Simpler times, when shirts were forbidden, and cutoffs: MANdatory. Also that dude is wearing a belt with his Jorts?
They were “cutoffs” everyone cool wore cutoffs in the 70′s, the nerds wore the hemmed shorts.
It just a bit of harmless fun! The fashion at the time is no worse than any other era prior or since! It is amusing. So many critics!! I bet there are some “cringe worthy” photo`s in all our photo albums if we choose to own up to it! Lighten up and just have a laugh!
Ah, those were the days…
My eyes are up here ladies, but really, eye contact is overrated.
We need a backstory on this one!
Ashley, the girl who submitted this, you have to tell us what was going on when this was taken.
I go back to look at this picture whenever I need a good laugh, between the picture and the caption, it always makes my days just a bit funnier.
Thats me. Seriously, like it was taken 20 years before my birth but we look identical. Hell its probs my dad. Add an extra 50 kilos and thats our early 90s christmas videos right there
wow the word “jorts” is hilarious
Were you at our cabin last weekend!?
The caption underneath just made me snort really loud in a totally silent office.
Did anyone else notice that tube sock guy on the far right is proudly wearing his “Master Batters” softball jersey? I wonder if he still has a smooth stroke?
…and he is *also* sporting “jorts”… Poor caption, it was so awesome.
The woman in pink and the lady next to her look completely mortified. They look ready to get the heck outta there. Stinkin’ jorts!!
“Do these effectively hide my thunder?”
That’s exactly what I was thinking!
I love jorts. That is all.
Can we please all make an agreement to stop using made up, combined words like “jorts”. Its not a real word so let’s not use it. Thanks.
Stop crying, put on your JORTS and bust a move
DEG – your comment made me LOL – at work – sending several questioning looks my way. Funny.
Style…….pop a groove…….uh ah ah I like it ….that they way ..uh uh uh I like it ..thats the way uh uh I like it….
please take your “cranky” jorts off!
You’re just going to have to get glad in the same jorts you got mad in.
This photo begs for time-capsule evaluation. The tube socks, the ringer tank top, the bevy of porn-star ‘staches…, the can cozies, the Farrah-girl with the high-waisted jeans, the dude with the completely unbuttoned dress shirt showing off his twelve-pack. It’s like a live-action “Find the Hidden objects” puzzle!
lol… 70′s hidden object game LOVE IT!
was so going to comment on the blue shirt “porn-star” stache & high-waisted jeans chick!! Bow chicka wow wow… <3 this pic!
You mean you haven’t heard the Bud Light “Real Men of Genius” radio ad where this term was first used? “Today we salute you, Mr. Jean Shorts Inventor!”
I think he was dancing on the table, and jumped down. The camera caught him mid air. Or maybe he’s on a stool.
Please leave his ‘motions’ out of this.
What is the farrah faucett lady’s name??? She looks like someone I know
You know, this picture is old enough that I bet this guy has children that are in their college years. I wonder if there may be some real awkward pictures he might be able to post of them and allow the group to comment.
I think the pretty Farrah Fawcett look alike must be one of his girlfriends. You can tell by how she is so focused on his eyes. Lucky girl!
I don’t think she’s focused on his eyes.
She is probably just trying to figure out what he will look like in 30 years when all of his freckles have inevitably combined
I don’t about anyone else, but I find this guy to be pretty hot. In a pale kind of way.
“Cutoffs” (cut-off jeans) were different than jorts. For a while in the mid to late 70s cutoffs were the ONLY shorts worn be me and my teenage friends. You knew you had cut them too short if the pockets poked out the bottom.
pockets… or something else…
Me thinks ‘Bobbin Bobby’ has an identical twin to the right!!! Is he fighting the impluse to jump up and jive with his bro…??
jane- jefferson starship
So who else looks at this and hears “Sin After Sin”-era Judas Priest playing in their head?
This photo needs a soundtrack
That is the best comment ever made on this site.
Baum – chicka – baum-baum
I think that’s my own mom in the back in the white shirt, but I don’t see anyone else I know–thankfully!
OK, who stole this from my family reunion photo album?
Those two women at back look seriously concerned – the one in the strappy vest is bracing herself for a quick getaway…
I think they’ve realized that he backed into the bench/table and is about to fall on the other women’s meal.
I really hope there isn’t a baby in that baby swing…scarred for life!
I was thinking the same thing! Why would you let your infant have a front row seat to Uncle Bob’s naughty dance? Someone will need therapy some day…..
I’m Ron Burgundy??
I was thinking Ron Swanson — before Pawnee City Hall.
Thank you. Here we see Ron enjoying the great Indiana outdoors. This photo alone was enough to get him the job.
gotta love the ‘stache and tube socks on the guy on the far right of photo.
I’m too sexy for my shirt…as sung by Red Head ED-1970′s flashback remix
Thanks…now I’ll have that song stuck in my head all day!
The belt makes it dressy.
I was thinkin’ it was the watch…
I love the lady wearing the white shorts with the red and blue tank in the background. You just know that she insisted that her husband wear either a polo or button up shirt with coordinating shorts to the family picnic, only to confirm when they got there that she had indeed married into an incognito redneck family. I can completely empathize.
ummmm…ok! i hope whatever he is standing on to do his dancing is sturdy. with
that baby swing in front of him that could be a bad situation if the baby is in it and he fell.
Someone is rocking the Farrar Fawcett do flawlessly.
yes! she looks just like her!
I see some 70′s hairstyles going on there.. LOL
Jorts (1 leg slightly higher than the other), belt, no socks, & tennis shoes. Wow, someone forgot to check the mirror before leaving the house! “Check out my guns”
Hey batta batta batta…sa-wiiiing!
A young Ron Swanson!
My thought exactly! “Shorts over 6″ are capri pants. Shorts under 6″ are European.”
Looks like he’s standing on something too–another big rule broken! Apparently America’s Funniest Home Videos hadn’t made it’s debut yet!
In this small town, there was also a bitter division among the men who chose to wear shirts and those who did not.
Nothing like a little game of strip poker at the family reunion!
It’s the highlight of any family reunion. Who DOESN’T want to see Cousin Gary get naked!!?? hahaha
