Re: Old fashion heat lamp?

Last weekend the guys on the rugby field at archery were practically running around in their underpants (and safety wasn't something they had to worry about apart from grass stains on their pecks!)
Strangely alluring though 😜.
Pecks. A kind of hybrid version of pecs and peckers?

Re: Has the world gone mad or am I just out of touch?

Yeh much the same. You may remember about that time shirts came out where the collar and cuffs were white but the body was a different colour. I had the temerity to wear one. It was virtually a hanging offence!
