No longer is it enough to wear a pair of jean shorts that are missing a waistband, ripped, and bedazzled. No longer is it enough to wear jean shorts that are dramatically fringed. Now, with so many jort styles exhausted, divas must turn to creatively engineering their jorts. When we look at them we must wonder things like, how is that Daffy Duck beach towel attached to her bottoms?
