"Jorts"? Since when were denim shorts a problem? #confused They're just one of several varieties. That top Urban Dictionary definition for this annoys me, too.
As long as they're not jeggings, they should be alright, right? They've never been especially unsightly to me on anyone. Cutoffs, maybe, but not the regular kind. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)

I've seen a few rants about denim shorts that make me shake my head. You'd think they were a sign of the apocalypse. - Ha3rvey (on hiatus)
Best jorts use ever is in the "Real Men of Genius" radio commercial. Here's the link, and it's under "Mr. Jean Shorts Inventor." http://budlight.whipnet.com/ (I have never drunk Bud Light; but I do love these ads) - Jenthemum
Harvey or Jen, any idea when that got started? Like roughly how many months or years ago? I never saw that annoying word "jorts" before today. Clearly I must have missed something... (Heh, that ad was silly. Was that an old one?) - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
I don't actually know the origin of "jorts". It just sounds like one of those words made up by over-fashion-conscious people. They can take my denim shorts when they pry them from my cold, dead legs. - Ha3rvey (on hiatus)
Well, the annoying thing about the Urban Dictionary definition is that it says that "jorts" are "okay for Black people". I have no idea why or what that's supposed to mean, and I'm kind of irritated by it. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
I think the first time I heard it was on that commercial; and that has got to be nearly ten years ago now. I don't think there's anything particularly bad about jean shorts, but I find the reference to them as "jorts" hilarious. - Jenthemum
Not to be confused with "Jarts." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - LB needs a break.
Considering how many of their "definitions" are made up my clearly deranged people with poor grammar and spelling, I wouldn't pay it any mind. - Ha3rvey (on hiatus)
I know, but why did so many other idiots vote it up? Just irritating. I'll forget about it in about an hour. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
Idiots of a feather flock together? :) - Ha3rvey (on hiatus)
Denim shorts became a problem when they started morphing into the acid washed, pleated and otherwise bastardized varieties. They are evil and must be destroyed. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
