Spotted at East Croydon station...

Although he looks as if he's alone, there's a very small woman behind this man and he's trying to impress her; but he's overdoing it a bit on the crotch display. Perhaps there's a medical problem. I am reminded of the Viz character Buster Gonad and his Unfeasibly Large Testicles (although his jeans are presumably too tight for an enlarged scrotum).

I've never seen anyone adopt this posture before (urinals excepted). Even John Wayne had his limits.

Now that is utterly ridiculous! (But it is funny imagining you behind him...)

I was on the train with my twins recently and they loudly asked why the man in the seat next to me had his legs so wide apart.

I saw a thirtysomething male in central London yesterday with the worst fall-down, just-got-out-of prison, Deputy Dawg jeans I ever did see. Not only did he look like he had no bum, he looked like ridiculously short legs in proportion to his torso.

Alas he was also gawping at me for some reason when all I really wanted him to do was turn round so I could photograph his bottom and blog it!

Speaking from experience, I imagine that he is trying to lower his ears closer to the level of his companion so that he can hear what she is saying (railway stations are noisy places) without breaking his back by bending in the middle.

Steerforth said...'re probably right, so instead of an absurd, macho crotch display, we have a tall man trying to be good listener in noisy station scenario.
