Florida Crackerville: Wear underwear & use deodorant

Brooksville: Workers Must Wear Underwear


The Brooksville city council recently approved a revised dress code as part of its effort to update existing policies.

The revision instructs employees to observe "strict personal hygiene," including the use of deodorant. It lists "the observable lack of undergarments and exposed undergarments" as "unacceptable attire."

It also prohibits clothing with foul language or messages promoting drug use, "sexually provocative" garments, halter tops and piercings anywhere except the ears.

Repeat offenders can be fired.

The city council approved the dress code 4-1. Mayor Joe Bernadini opposed the revision, saying the underwear edict "takes away freedom of choice."

Comment: My wife's parents used to live in Brooksville. Wiki: Florida cracker. I file this with this thought: There is something wrong with people that would have to be told this!

  1. Actually Jim, going commando is not all that uncommon. And it is not because of a lack of hygiene. Some, mostly females, find it more comfortable with certain clothing styles.(So I've been told) You may or may not be surprised, but there are probably more people than you know that do this. I just have to ask, how can you police something like that.

    The whole deodorant thing though, that baffles me.
