Man, this job is getting tougher all the time...

"Effective April 1, 2007

When performing installation, inspection, and/or maintenance of any electrical installation, workmen shall be required to perform said operations while wearing "thong" type undergarments. Said garments will be clearly visible for inspection of any OSHA agent from a distance of not less than 50 feet, and may not be covered by any other garments. For safety and visibility, garments should be of a bright color, preferable pink or "peach", and shall be adorned with some degree of lace."

I hear Victoria's Secret is having a sale...

Oh, should we wear them over our work pants? I'm glad we finally get to be fashionable. The plumbers and their crack will have nothing on us electricians.

I think we can only wear the thongs - and of course our tool belts. Tiger striped should be fine I guess.

I work with a 250lb guy. I think when he's going up the ladder it's gonna look like two walruses fighting over a peice of dental floss. Blah!! I'll need to bleach my eyes!

Sounds like Sheriff Joe Arpaio from Arizona had a say in the new rules!

Is the thong rated for arc-flash protection?

It might only cover 1% of body surface area, but hey, that's a pretty important 1%...
